Atlanta Hawks vs Milwaukee Bucks: Prediction and Betting Tips

01:30, Jun 28 2021
Atlanta Hawks vs Milwaukee Bucks prediction for Monday’s game three clash of the NBA playoffs at State Farm Arena in Atlanta. The series is tied at 1-1 as the Hawks host the Bucks in Atlanta for two games and a chance to take the lead. Read on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Worrying performance for the Atlanta Hawks in game two

The Hawks must feel very relieved after returning from Milwaukee with a win from the two first games. The difference between the two games was Trae Young. In the first game, he scored 48 points. In game two, Trae Young was limited to just 15 points. A team can not rely on one player in modern basketball as it proved with other teams as well. 

McMillan must find solutions to this problem otherwise they could face the same fate as Utah who were relying on Donovan Mitchel and paid the price. The Hawks’ players were horrible from the field in game two as just four players including Trae Young scored under 15 points. McMillan’s team suffered from the arc shooting just 25%.

Hawks Key Stats

  • The Hawks are shooting 45% from the field in the series
  • 103 is the average scored points by the Hawks 
  • The three-point average of the Hawks is 25%

Milwaukee Bucks need to win to get back control of the series

The Bucks hit back in game two after losing game one and their home-court advantage. They now have to travel to Atlanta and win at least one of the two games to get back control of the series. It wasn’t just a great offensive game by Budenholzer’s team but defensively they were great as well.

A big credit should go to Jrue Holiday who guarded Trae Young and did a great job, scoring 22 points himself. Giannis Antetokounmpo as usual was the Bucks’ top scorer with 25 points and nine rebounds. Khris Middleton had a quiet game for the second game scoring 15 points and making 2-7 from the arc.

Bucks Key Stats

  • 119 points per game is the Bucks average in the series
  • The Bucks are shooting 58% from the field
  • The three-point percentage of the Bucks is 30%

Atlanta Hawks vs Milwaukee Bucks Prediction

It seems that this series will go to the wire as well with both teams sharing the win in the first two matches. If the Bucks can neutralize Trae Young as they did in game two, they will have a chance to register more wins.

It is expected for the Hawks to improve in game three as they must take advantage of playing at State Home Arena and build on the win they had in game one.

We had predicted correctly both of our bets for game two. We think a lot will change tactically following game two, especially on the Hawks’ side as they will look for solutions if Trae Young keeps his scoring contribution low.

In just one match of the playoffs at State Home Arena over 226 points were scored and we think we may not see more points in this game as well.
