The Atlanta Hawks look for a statement win to build on their three-game winning streak. The Atlanta Hawks are averaging 112.3 points on 43.9 percent shooting and allowing 108.9 points on 43.6 percent shooting. Trae Young is averaging 25.3 points and 4.4 rebounds while De’Andre Hunter is averaging 16.3 points and 5.9 rebounds. John Collins is the third double-digit scorer and Clint Capela is grabbing 14.5 rebounds. The Atlanta Hawks are shooting 34.8 percent from beyond the arc and 80.7 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Hawks are allowing 32.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 50.1 rebounds per game.
The Milwaukee Bucks look for a win to rebound from back to back losses. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 119.5 points on 48.7 percent shooting and allowing 110.7 points on 45.2 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 27 points and 10.3 rebounds while Khris Middleton is averaging 21.9 points and 5.7 assists.

The Hawks are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest. The Bucks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 10-1 in Hawks last 11 overall. The under is 5-1 in Bucks last 6 overall. The Hawks are 18-6 ATS in the last 24 meetings in Milwaukee and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Atlanta Hawks have turned things around a bit during this winning streak, but I'm still not sure I trust them against above average teams. The Milwaukee Bucks should be up for this game after back to back losses and they've proven they can beat lesser teams into the ground. The Hawks inconsistent shooting from the field could be their downfall in this contest. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Bucks at home.
