The Hawks are coming off an offensive collapse last night and they might do it again tonight in Orlando. If the Magic can bring the defense, this total is way too high.

Hawks vs. Magic

 

We cashed the under on the Hawks last night thanks to their offense falling apart outside of Paul Millsap. This Hawks team has never been a great offensive team this season and on the road they have been pretty bad too. They are averaging just 101 points per game on the road this year and on the back to back they have been a consistent under cashing team.

In their 11 games on no rest so far this season, the Hawks are 7-4 cashing the under and I see them making it 8-4 tonight. The Magic are not a great defensive team, but they are serviceable at home. They have the ability to put up a strong showing on that end of the court and I think they put up a better defensive effort tonight than they did two nights ago against the Blazers.

However, the biggest factor leading me to the under on this one other than the number being a bit too high is the Magic as home underdogs. So far this season when playing as a home dog, the Magic are 13-5 cashing the under, which is a success rate of 72.2%. Look for them to show up on defense and for the Hawks to struggle coming off a game last night.
