The Milwaukee Bucks got a slice of humble pie on Christmas after the 76ers shot them out of the building, but this is a nice bounce back spot against a Hawks team that's riding an eight-game losing streak. However, the Milwaukee Bucks are just 7-8 ATS as a double-digit favorite this season, while the Atlanta Hawks are 4-2 ATS as a double-digit underdog. The return of John Collins is also a major boost to the Hawks, as he's easily the teams second best player and a legit scoring option to take pressure off of Trae Young. This line is a bit too steep. Give me the points with the home team.
