The Atlanta Hawks and Milwaukee Bucks meet Sunday in NBA action at the Fiserv Forum.

The Atlanta Hawks look for a victory after splitting their last 12 games. The Atlanta Hawks are averaging 113.2 points on 45.2 percent shooting and allowing 119.2 points on 47.4 percent shooting. John Collins is averaging 19.5 points and 9.5 rebounds while Trae Young is averaging 19.1 points and eight assists. Kent Bazemore is the third double-digit scorer and Dewayne Dedmon is grabbing 7.5 rebounds. The Atlanta Hawks are shooting 35 percent from beyond the arc and 75.3 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Hawks are allowing 36.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.9 rebounds per game. The Atlanta Hawks have lost five of their last six road games.

The Milwaukee Bucks look for a victory after winning 11 of their last 16 games. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 118.1 points on 47.6 percent shooting and allowing 108.8 points on 43.2 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 27.7 points and 12.5 rebounds while Khris Middleton is averaging 18.1 points and 4.3 assists. Eric Bledsoe is the third double-digit scorer and Brook Lopez is grabbing 4.8 rebounds. The Milwaukee Bucks are shooting 35.3 percent from beyond the arc and 77.5 percent from the free throw line. The Milwaukee Bucks are allowing 35.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 49.6 rebounds per game. The Milwaukee Bucks have won five of their last six home games.

The Hawks are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 road games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Bucks are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 33-16-3 ATS in their last 52 vs. Eastern Conference and 33-16-3 ATS in their last 52 games overall. The Hawks are 10-2 ATS in the last 12 meetings in Milwaukee and 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings. The over is 4-0 in Bucks last 4 overall. The over is 6-2 in Hawks last 8 overall.

The Atlanta Hawks just two the Milwaukee Bucks to overtime last week and won the game. Sure, it was against the Bucks backups for the most part, but that's what they'll be playing here when you consider half of the Bucks roster is out or questionable. The Hawks have their injuries as well, but they still find ways to complete and have been highly successful offensively. I'm not laying double-digit chalk with a Bucks team that's not playing Giannis Antetokounmpo and others. Give me the points.

Pick:
Atlanta Hawks +12
