There are six games on tonight's NBA slate, don't worry about handicapping them. I have you covered. Spend your time working on your NCAA tournaments brackets. There is plenty of good information posted right now on NBC Sports EDGE to help you out. 

The Washington Wizards have lost five games in a row. They are home tonight for the Utah Jazz, but Russell Westbrook will not play for Washington.  

The Orlando Magic have lost eight games in a row, while the New York Knicks have lost two games in a row. They meet up tonight at the Garden. Aaron Gordon and Evan Fournier are both questionable for the Magic and if they don't play, the Magic may not reach 90 points.

Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Atlanta Hawks (-7) Total: 224.5

Nate McMillan has the Atlanta Hawks ballin' right now. The Hawks have not lost in the six games with McMillan as the interim head coach and they are 4-1-1 ATS in that timeframe. 

The Thunder are dealing with some injuries as they bring their 13-7 road ATS record to State Farm Arena this evening. Theo Maledon and Luguentz Dort are both questionable for the game, while Darius Bazley will be out. For the Hawks, Clint Capela and Onyeka Okongwu are both questionable.

The Hawks and Thunder played in late February in Oklahoma City and the Thunder were won by eight, but I expect Atlanta to get revenge tonight.

 

This game opened up with the Hawks as a 7-point favorite and the the line has not moved as of yet, indicating that the sharp money is backing the streaking Hawks. 

Overall, the Hawks have been slightly profitable as a home favorite this season and successful laying points as the home favorite in 5 of the last 6 times they have been in that situation. Hopefully, tonight makes it 6 out of 7. 

Prop: Hawks guard Kevin Huerter has made at least 3 three-pointers in three of his last 5 games. Tonight on PointsBet, Huerter's made three-pointers prop is 2.5 and the over is +150. That's definitely worth a sprinkle.  

Edge: Hawks -7
