The Magic (32-38) pounded the Hawks (24-46) twice this season, by 16 and 19 points. But lately, fortunes have turned for each team, and Oh’s projections believe the more-recent trends keep going Sunday.
“Orlando has lost four of six, the wins against the Cavs and Mavs, and it’s 1-4 against the spread when favored by between 6-9 points,” Oh told SportsLine. “Atlanta has won two in a row and is also on a 9-2 ATS run. My computer simulations see a close game in Orlando. Take the points.”
Confidently lock in the Hawks to cover, and you could be well on your way to a colossal parlay payoff.
