Atlanta Hawks vs Milwaukee Bucks 6/23/2021 Betting Odds
Atlanta Hawks Betting
The Atlanta Hawks completed the upset over the Philadelphia 76ers and prevailed in seven games. Trae Young was fantastic and led the team with his intense gameplay. He is expected to take this game to a higher level in order to bring his team to the NBA Finals. He would need help coming from John Collins providing the secondary offense while Clint Capela must control the paint and prevent “The Greek Freak” from getting easy drives to the basket. This team will most probably miss Bogdan Bogdanovic but will most likely activate Kevin Huerter. Lou Williams and Danilo Gallinari should step up and get more minutes in this series.

Milwaukee Bucks Betting
The Milwaukee Bucks were able to dismantle the Brooklyn Nets in an exciting Game 7. Giannis Antetokounmpo outmatched Kevin Durant. He is expected to be the biggest weapon on both ends on the floor for the Bucks while Khris Middleton has shown to be a great closer as well. Jrue Holiday’s off-season acquisition has already paid dividends for the team and controlling the floor will be his main role as usual. Brook Lopez has been a good complementary piece with Antetokounmpo and the seven-footer helps stretch the floor with his outside shooting. Bobby Portis also ads the spark coming off the bench.
