The Bucks are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest.

Neither of these teams have looked good over the last week and the Bucks have had issues on the road all year where they lose by an average of 4.5 points. With that said, the Bucks are easily the better, more trustworthy team as the Hawks have been extremely disappointing through 40 games. With a below average offense and a defense that’s not much better, give me the Bucks in this toss up spot.
