The Milwaukee Bucks and the Atlanta Hawks collide at the State Farm Arena on Wednesday night in NBA action.

The Milwaukee Bucks have been in pretty good shape as they’ve won four of their past six games overall and they will be aiming to stay hot after sneaking past the Knicks in a 111-107 road win on Monday. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the team with 22 points, 10 rebounds and five assists, Joe Ingles and Brook Lopez each scored 17 points while Jrue Holiday chipped in with 15 points and nine assists. As a team, the Bucks shot just 43 percent from the field and 19 of 49 from the 3-point line as they struggled to find their offense in the first half and fell behind by as many as 17 points, before they exploded for 38 points in the fourth quarter to cap off one of their best comebacks of the season.

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks have been in a rut as they’ve lost five of their last seven games, but they will be looking to build some momentum after outlasting the Clippers in a 112-108 road win on Sunday. Trae Young led the way with 30 points and eight assists on nine of 17 shooting, DeAndre Hunter added 20 points on eight of 13 shooting while Dejounte Murray chipped in with 16 points with five rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Hawks shot 49 percent from the field and eight of 26 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in trouble after surrendering a 17-point lead to trail by 11 points, but they stayed focused and finished strong to escape with the much-needed win in the end.  

Looking at the betting trends, the Bucks are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 road games, 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games against a team with a losing record and 4-11-2 ATS in their last 17 games following a win. The Hawks are 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games and 16-36 ATS in their last 52 games following a win.

Head to head, the under is 7-2 in the last nine meetings in Atlanta and the Bucks are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings in Atlanta.

The Bucks will again be missing Khris Middleton and Serge Ibaka, while the Hawks have ruled out Clint Capela once again. The Hawks currently lead the season series by 2-1, but they’re mired in a slump at the moment and they are only 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games. With that being said, I’m more comfortable going with the Bucks to get the win and cover at the short line in this spot.
