The Bucks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Hawks are 0-11 ATS in their last 11 home games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 5-0 in Bucks last 5 overall. The over is 7-3 in Hawks last 10 overall. The under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Atlanta.

The Milwaukee Bucks have been hit or miss as of late, but they're healthy for the most part and still a dangerous team as long as Antetokounmpo and others are a go. The Atlanta Hawks are a complete mess and underachieving, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 13.6 points while allowing nearly 50 percent shooting from the field. Backing the Hawks against a respectable team is nuts right now. Give me the Bucks and the small chalk.
