NBA Betting Predictions: Orlando Magic vs. Atlanta Hawks

Orlando Magic (16-10) @ Atlanta Hawks (17-11)

Date: Monday December 20th, 2010

Time: 7:00 pm EST

Point Spread: TBA

Over/Under Line: TBA

Preview: The Orlando Magic will head to Atlanta to take on the Hawks in a huge Southeast Divisional tilt. The Magic look to snap their two game losing streak, as they lost in Denver and at home to Philadelphia. Orlando acquired Gilbert Arenas from Washington, along with Jason Richardson and Hedo Turkoglu from Phoenix. In the trade, the Magic sent Vince Carter and Rashard Lewis out. The Magic come into the game in second place in the division, trailing Miami by 3.5 games. Orlando ranks 21st in the NBA in scoring, putting up just 96.6 points per game. The defense for the Magic is 4th in the league, allowing 92.8 points per game.

Atlanta is coming off a 90-85 win over the Bobcats on Friday night. The win for the Hawks put them in a virtual tie with the Magic for second place in the division. Atlanta also plays on Sunday afternoon in New Jersey, so this tilt with the Magic will be the latter game of a back-to-back. The Hawks are scoring 97.5 points per game, led by Joe Johnson and his 17.0 ppg.

My NBA Betting Predictions: the home team will come up with a win. Orlando’s players will be there, but not quite enough and in sync yet. Hawks win 101-94.
