The Atlanta Hawks take on the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday, December 2. The game will tip off at 8 p.m. ET from the Fiserv Forum. The Bucks are coming off a loss to the Bulls, and the Hawks most recently beat the Spurs.

The Bucks will be missing Pat Connaughton (ankle) and Jae Crowder (groin). Andre Jackson Jr. (back) is also questionable for Milwaukee. Jalen Johnson (wrist) is out for the Hawks.

The Bucks enter as 6.5-point favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook, with the total set at 253. Milwaukee is -250 on the moneyline while Atlanta is +205.

Hawks vs. Bucks, 8 p.m. ET

Pick ATS: Hawks +6.5

The last time these two teams played this season, the Hawks defeated the Bucks 127-110. After the Bucks’ loss against the Bulls in their latest game, I like the Hawks to keep it close here. Milwaukee will have homecourt advantage, which could help turn things around from the previous loss to Atlanta. Both teams have losing records ATS this season. I’m taking the Hawks to stay with Milwaukee for most of this contest.

Over/Under: Over 253

Aside from Johnson, both teams have all their top scorers healthy and prepared to play in what should be a very competitive matchup. The Hawks are 11-7 on the over this season, and the Bucks are 12-7. Go ahead and take the over here.
