Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Milwaukee. As of Tuesday morning, 75 percent of public bets have sided with the Bucks. Online wager info also shows that 60 percent of bets are coming in on the over.

Who We Like: Milwaukee won the first meeting this season by a count of 117-106 in Atlanta on Oct. 29. Atlanta is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings, having covered the previous six matchups before this season. The over-under has gone 5-5. The Hawks snapped a two-game losing streak with a 118-115 home win over the Pistons their last game. Atlanta is 4-6 ATS in its last 10 games, while the over has gone 6-4. The Bucks have won four of their last five games and are 6-4 ATS in their last 10. The under is 9-1 with an over snapping a streak of nine consecutive games where the total stayed under.

The Bucks are playing strong basketball as of late, showing a strong defensive effort that wasn't always there before previous head coach Jason Kidd was fired. Atlanta is a team that goes through the motions a lot in road games and with the Bucks having an extra day to prepare for this contest, I like the hosts to cover here.
