The Milwaukee Bucks play host to the Atlanta Hawks at the Fiserv Forum on Sunday night in NBA action.

Atlanta Hawks Betting Preview

The Atlanta Hawks will be hoping to avoid a third straight defeat after coming up short to the Knicks in a 126-120 loss on Friday. De'Andre Hunter led the team in scoring with 27 points on eight of 13 shooting, Trae Young and Dejounte Murray scored 18 points apiece while Bogdan Bogdanovic chipped in with 16 points off the bench. As a team, the Hawks shot 48 percent from the field and 12 of 32 from the 3-point line, but their problems were on the defensive end as they allowed 69 points in the first half and could never really threaten after falling behind by 11 points in the fourth quarter.

Milwaukee Bucks Betting Preview

Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks are coming into this one looking for a second straight win after outlasting the 76ers in a thrilling 118-117 home win on Thursday. Damian Lillard led the team with 39 points, eight rebounds and four assists, Giannis Antetokounmpo tallied 23 points iwth 12 rebounds and two blocks while Brook Lopez chipped in with 13 points. As a team, the Bucks shot 50 percent from the field and 11 of 30 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in trouble when they squandered a 19-point deficit, only to turn to Lillard who turned it on late to carry the Bucks over the line in his debut.

Peter's Pick

The Hawks are still missing Wesley Matthews, while the Bucks are still missing Khris Middleton due to right knee injury management. The Hawks could really do with a win just to get their season on track, but they haven't looked good so far and they won't have an easy night against this new-look Bucks outfit. The Bucks haven't played since Thursday, so they will have extra time to practice together, which spells trouble for the Hawks in this one. The line is a little hefty, but I think the Bucks pull away late to get the win and cover here.
