Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 28.8 points and 11.4 rebounds while Khris Middleton is averaging 20.3 points and 5.4 assists.

The Atlanta Hawks look for a win after winning seven of their last eight games.

Trae Young is averaging 25.4 points and four rebounds while John Collins is averaging 18.2 points and 7.8 rebounds.

The Bucks are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Hawks are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 home games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 6-2 in Bucks last 8 Thursday games. The under is 5-2 in Hawks last 7 home games. The Bucks are 5-11 ATS in the last 16 meetings.
The Milwaukee Bucks are on the end of a back to back and are playing without Giannis Antetokounmpo, but they win by an average of 7.5 points in the favorite role and are still the better team with health on their side. The Atlanta Hawks are the most banged up team in the league right now and it’s hard to like this team without Young and others. Not a game to fall in love with, but I’d lean Bucks if forced to pick this contest.
