Spread: Milwaukee Bucks -2.0 (-110) @ PointsBet

The Milwaukee Bucks and Atlanta Hawks have put together an impressive series so far this regular season. They'll meet once more with the Hawks currently having the edge over the Bucks, 2-1. We're taking the Milwaukee Bucks at -2.0 (-110) in the final meeting between these teams.

The Atlanta Hawks have dropped three of their last five games, mostly due to their unimpressive defense. The Hawks have allowed their opponents to score 125.6 points per game on 47.7% from he field and 35.9% from three-point range. The Milwaukee Bucks, on the other hand, are stalwart in their defensive approach. Through their last five games the Bucks have allowed their opponents to shoot just 43.4% from the field and 29.1% from three-point range.

The Milwaukee Bucks should level the season series due to the consistency of their defense. The Hawks' offensive potential is good, but their efficiency is lacking. With Capela questionable for this game, the Bucks are likely to dominate in the paint.

At Caesars Sportsbook, the Milwaukee Bucks and Atlanta Hawks are a -110 to fall short of a 232.0 combined score when they face off. Both teams have the average potential to clear 232.0, but with their game plans going head-to-head it's much less likely. Given the Hawks' offensive inefficiency and the Bucks' defence, expect the Bucks and Hawks to fall short of 232.0.

On the season, the Milwaukee Bucks are averaging a combined points total of 223.5 points on a plus-1.3 point differential. The Atlanta Hawks are averaging a combined points total of 231.7 on a minus-1.1 points differential. Over their last five games, the Bucks have cleared 232.0 just twice while the Hawks have cleared 232.0 in four of their last five.

Taking into account the Bucks' defence, which is allowing teams to shoot just 43.4% from the field and 29.1% from three over their last five games, it's difficult to expect a high-scoring affair. Also, given the Hawks are shooting just 30.6% from three in their last five games, Atlanta doesn't project to make up the difference against Milwaukee's defence. We're comfortable with the under.
