Revenge will be on the mind of the Milwaukee Bucks players ahead of tonight’s game as they’ve already lost twice to this Hawks team this season, once by 20 points and then by 7 points with both games being on the road.
There are several reasons why we should back the Bucks here, one of them is certainly their record of 9 wins in 10 home games vs the Hawks. This team is cooking offensively, over their last 5 games they’ve scored 142, 132, 118, 120 and 130 points which is one of their best stretches of basketball all season long.
Giannis Antetokounmpo had himself a big game with 39 points last night despite playing only 28 minutes, as the Bucks dominated OKC and won 142-115. It was the 4th time in their last 5 games they were able to cover the spread.
There are a couple of injury worries ahead of tonight’s game with George Hill and Grayson Allen being questionable, but this team is playing so well right now that might not even matter.
Each game from now on carries big importance to the Atlanta Hawks as they are clinging to the 10th seed in the Eastern Conference, just 1.5 games ahead of the Washington Wizards. They have a chance to improve to 9th with a win tonight, but it won’t be easy as they are playing on the road there and their record this season away from home is just 12-20 SU.
In their last 10 visits to Milwaukee they’ve won just once and in their last 8 games on the road overall they are just 1-7 ATS. They could get Kevin Huerter back in the line-up following his recovery from shoulder injury, he will provide a decent scoring punch for them and take a bit of load off of Trae Young.
I’m curious to see if Young can continue his stellar play against the Bucks, in 2 games this season he’s averaging 36 points against them while shooting over 50% from three-point land.
It’s hard to imagine Giannis allowing a team like the Atlanta Hawks sweeping the season series against the Bucks. Milwaukee is on the rise right now and they are beating teams with ease. Give me the home side to cover here.
Milwaukee Bucks vs Atlanta Hawks Predictions & Odds
The 2 meetings earlier this season finished with 220 and 235 point scored and with the recent results from both teams I an not at all surprised with the projected point total being set at 237 points here.
Just last night the Bucks game against Oklahoma City finished with 257 points and their last 5 games have all seen 230 or more points scored. The Hawks have also been involved in some high scoring games, they are averaging 119 points per game over their last 3 outings while allowing 117 per game during the stretch.
In recent meetings between these 2 teams the total has gone over in 2 of the last 3 games as well. Atlanta has gone over in 8 of 10 games vs Central Division teams, plus in 5 of their last 7 games played in March.
Milwaukee’s games have gone over the total 11 times in their last 13 games, including 6 of their 7 played at Fiserv Forum. Taking all this into account I think we are in for a high scoring game here, so I’d advise backing the over.
