Do you need a support for wood island top with 15" overhang?

i am getting a 72" x 54" wood countertop, 1 -3/4" flat grain Ash or Alder. The island will be supported by a 57" x 24" of cabinets. there will only be a 2" overhang in the front, but the other 3 sides will have a 15" overhang. Do I really need supports? The cost of the top is very expensive and then they wanted a ton of money to add 8 hidden supports. The 33" cabinet in the back of the island has doors that open to one side, so could only add supports on 2 sides of this cabinet. Please advise. We are so over budget and I cant see this heavy top going anywhere unless you decided to put a 200 lb person on top of an overhang!
