Milwaukee Bucks vs Atlanta Hawks Predictions: BETTING TIPS, PREDICTION & BETTING ODDS

We are 27 games into the Doc Rivers experiment, so far the Bucks are 14-13 SU under him compared to 30-13 under previous head coach Adrian Griffin. That’s very far away from what the Bucks management had in mind when they made that decision, and now they have to live with the consequences. Milwaukee is on a run of back-to-back defeats to the Lakers and Pelicans, they’re looking to redeem themselves against a Hawks team that just beat the Boston Celtics two games in a row. On top of all the issues the Bucks have, Damian Lillard has been ruled out for this game, while Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton are both game time decisions. As we get set to close out March, there’s not much optimism around this team, Milwaukee has just 1 win in 6 road games.

I don’t think you’ll find many people backing the Hawks to win both of their games against the Celtics, but they did exactly that. In the first game the Hawks were 10.5 point underdogs, in the 2nd the spread was even higher at a whopping 15.5 points. That didn’t stop Dejounte Murray from having one of his best games ever with 44 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists. This team is now on a run of 4 wins on the bounce, which has gotten them to only half a game back from the 9th seeded Chicago Bulls. Finishing ahead of the Bulls would be massive, that means home court advantage in the first game of the play-in tournament. Atlanta is doing remarkable stuff without Trae Young, they’re 7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and 4-1 ATS/SU in their last 5 overall.

The Bucks are probably winning this if Giannis plays, but I’m not trusting them to win by 8 points against a really solid and in-form Hawks team here. I’m taking the home team plus the extra points.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Atlanta Hawks Predictions TOTAL POINTS PREDICTION: Over 230

Over 230 Total Points is available at -110 odds

One of the biggest reasons why the Bucks hired Doc Rivers were their defensive issues under Griffin, but in the last 15 games they’ve been mediocre at best on that end. Teams are putting up 112.9 points per 100 possession on them, that’s only the 14th best mark in the NBA. Against a red-hot Hawks team, it could be another long night on that end of the floor for them. The first two meetings were high scoring with 237 and 253 points scored. Although the O/U is 5-5 over the past 10 meetings, the two teams are averaging 230.8 points per game during that stretch. Atlanta has been on a roll during this 4-game win streak, scoring 120+ points in all 4 games. It is a small sample size, but they’re the 3rd most efficient offense in the NBA at 126.9 points per 100 possessions scored during that stretch. This team has nothing to lose really, so I expect them to once again push the tempo here. The Bucks are able to respond, they’ve put up 14 and 15 threes in their last 2 games, so buckle up and grab your popcorn because this will be a high scoring game. I’m backing the over.
