The Hawks have covered four of their last five road games, not to
mention seven of the past eight meetings with Milwaukee. While the Bucks
are impressive on a nightly basis, this is too many points. Especially
with the Bucks possibly looking ahead to their game with Toronto on
The Milwaukee Bucks have had no problem covering these big numbers.
It’s easy to see why when they are 17-3 at home this season and
outscoring their opponents by 13.8 PPG. And they’re laying 13 points
here to the worst team in the Eastern Conference in the Atlanta Hawks.
It's always a little scary to go against one of the best teams in the
league at home against one of the worst teams in the league, but
Atlanta's done pretty well against the Bucks over the years.
I'll take my chances here with Atlanta as a big road dog against the
Bucks on Friday night. I just think we are seeing too much value to pass
up with the Hawks. Tough spot for Milwaukee, who has to be feeling good
about themselves off a 121-98 win over Detroit on Tuesday.

The Bucks have been on a nice run of beating down bad teams, winning and
covering their last four. The Hawks come off a 114-98 loss Wednesday at
Washington and this will be the last of a three-game road trip. The
Hawks certainly qualify as another bad team on the Bucks schedule.
