Hawks vs. Magic Game Info

Atlanta Hawks (15-20, 7-11 Away) vs. Orlando Magic (13-22, 8-11 Home)
Date: Wednesday, March 3, 2021
Time: 8 p.m. EST
Venue: Amway Center — Orlando, Fla.

The Hawks have made a coaching change and are on the second leg of a back-to-back, so it’s possible they feel a little scattered right now. However, they did play motivated following the coaching change, defeating the Heat last night 94-80. The offense certainly doesn’t impress you, but holding anyone to 80 points has to feel good. Cam Reddish has dealt with an Achilles injury and is questionable again tonight. However, Bogdan Bogdanovic came back last night, seeing 15 minutes of floor time.

The Magic have plenty of injuries as well. Aside from the long-term injuries they have dealt with, Evan Fournier is listed as questionable with a back injury, and James Ennis is out. Orlando has faced a tough stretch of opponents, which has led to them losing the last four games. They have been better at home instead of on the road, but they will need to bring their best to reverse this losing trend.

Hawks vs. Magic NBA Picks | Total

Much like the point spread, those making NBA betting picks for the total in tonight’s Hawks – Magic game should be a bit selective. Those interested in betting the total over will find the best value at SugarHouse and DraftKings in the form of an over 218.5 (-113) ticket. On the contrary, those looking to bet the Hawks – Magic total under should aim to do so at BetMGM, with a line of 219.5 (-110).

Hawks vs. Magic Prediction

The Hawks are playing on a back-to-back, but they are still playing with the energy and relief of the coaching change. They played solid defense last night and didn’t even shoot that well. I expect shots to fall a little easier tonight, helping them cover the spread on the road.

Prediction: Hawks -3.5
