Why Bet on the Milwaukee Bucks?
Injuries have plagued the Bucks this season, and the recent return of Jrue Holiday and Khris Middleton showed everyone how crucial their roles are to the team. With Giannis Antetokounmpo expected to be out for a few more days, they will have to deliver more consistent performances. Speaking of consistency, this Bucks vs. Hawks game features two teams on wining streaks.
Khris Middleton was the top scorer in their last game against the Orlando Magic. The forward recorded 21 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists in under 30 minutes. Head coach Mike Budenholzer also showed us the team’s depth after having all but one player on the scoresheet.
Behind Khris Middleton, we see the significant efforts of Bobby Portis through his 16-point and 10-assist game. Right behind him are three more double-digit scorers, including Jordan Nwora, Bryn Forbes, Pat Connaughton, and Jrue Holiday. We anticipate these names to come up and produce the numbers once again in this forthcoming contest.
Why Bet on the Atlanta Hawks?
The Hawks have been tremendous this season since Nate McMillan was appointed head coach. They have recorded six wins in their last seven games and are looking to add more wins to the tally. Now riding a 3-game winning streak, the Hawks hit the road with good momentum.
Their win in the last game against the Toronto Raptors was gritty. Bogdan Bogdanović led the scoring with 23 points, 4 assists, and 6 rebounds to his name. He is followed by center Clint Capela who scored 19 and collected an impressive 21 rebounds.
Brandon Goodwin and Kevin Huerter also put in a fair share of points to the scoreboard, recording 18 points and 17 points, respectively. Despite not having Trae Young in their last two outings, the Hawks proved that they have a squad that can find ways to win.

Bucks vs. Hawks Expert Betting Prediction
The Hawks have been one of the more surprising teams of this season. They delivered consistent results and secured a position that can potentially bring the team to the playoffs. In this upcoming game, we will see how they cope up with tougher and grittier opponents. On the other hand, the Bucks have seen their ups and downs this season, especially with the absence of their star player Giannis.
Nevertheless, this is going to be an interesting and heated battle between playoff contenders. There’s very little separating the two, which means edge-of-your-seat basketball from start to finish.
