Atlanta Hawks Betting
The Atlanta Hawks managed to even up the series at 2-2 after taking Game 4 by as much as 22 points, 110-88, but it came at the expense of having more players lingering to be on the injured list. Joining Trae Young in doubt for Game 5 is center Clint Capela who got an eye injury. The big man was able to contribute 15 points and seven rebounds in seven minutes during the last match. Veteran guard Lou Williams filled in for Trae Young and he went vintage doing 21 points, eight assists and five rebounds while Bogdan Bogdanovic tallied 20 points while shooting six triples.

Milwaukee Bucks Betting
The Milwaukee Bucks have lost Game 4 but that is more magnified with Giannis Antetokounmpo being doubtful for the rest of the season. The “Greek Freak” was able to tally 14 points, eight rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes before succumbing to a terrifying knee injury. Jrue Holiday took over with 19 points, nine assists and five rebounds while Kris Middleton did 16 points, eight rebounds and five assists but the Bucks are deep into the Hawks’ lead. For them to take Game 5, they will need Middleton and Holiday to step it up and Bobby Portis should be coming off from the bench.
