The Orlando Magic (21-48) travel to meet the Atlanta Hawks (39-31) Thursday at State Farm Arena. Tip-off is set for 7:30 p.m. ET. Below, we analyze the Magic vs. Hawks odds and lines, with NBA picks and predictions.

The Magic is long since eliminated from the playoff hunt, and they enter this game on a four-game losing streak while going just 1-3 against the spread during the span.

The last time they traveled to Atlanta they were dumped 112-96 on April 20 as the Hawks covered as a 12.5-point spread.

The Hawks completed a two-game sweep of the visiting Washington Wizards on Wednesday, helping their cause in the chase for the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference. Atlanta has won five of the past six while going 3-3 ATS.

Against the spread (ATS)

The HAWKS -14 (-110) are 0-3 ATS across the past three outings, and they’re 3-6 ATS over the previous nine.

However, the last time they were favored by double digits, they covered, and that was April 20 at home in the most recent meeting with the Magic +14 (-110).

Over/Under (O/U)

OVER 223.5 (-110) is the slight lean in this one, although it will be a close call so go lightly.

The Over is 4-1 in Atlanta’s past five games overall, while cashing in seven of the past 10 on no rest. Meanwhile, the Over has hit in 12 of the past 16 for Orlando, and eight of its past 11 on the road.
