Milwaukee Bucks Betting

The Bucks entered their Christmas game without scoring point guard, Eric Bledsoe. The Bucks took the Sixers by putting Wes Matthews and Donte DiVincenzo. That plan backfired on them as both players just combined for 10 points for 25 minutes each. George Hill had a good scoring night with 15 points but the Bucks needed someone who can control the game. Their best assist player was with Giannis Antetokuonmpo but he was doing everything already for the Bucks. The “Greek Freak” also had a bad night shooting 8-for-27 points. Against the Hawks, this should be easy for them as their opponents doesn’t carry the defensive pressure that the Sixers can give. It is a good time as well to brush up George Hill at the point once again and make him guard Trae Young.

Atlanta Hawks Betting

The Atlanta Hawks almost got a win against the Cleveland Cavaliers as they lost only by 3 points. Trae Young has been doing it all as always with 30 points, 11 assists, six rebounds and four steals. He shot 5-of-14 from the three-point arc as well. But the good sight for the Hawks is John Collins stepping up with 27 points, ten rebounds and two steals. Kevin Huerter and DeAndre Hunter combined for 42 points but other than that, they only had 19 points from the rest of the roster. In facing the Bucks, they will need to dig deep and find help from their role players. Saying that is like asking the moon and the stars from their players.
