MILWAUKEE Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Atlanta Hawks is ready to tip-off and this game is shaping out to be the closest one yet in this series.

Going into the game, online sportsbooks have the Milwaukee Bucks favored to win, however, in this game especially, there is no way bettors should be counting out the Hawks to take in a 3-2 series lead after the devastating injuries that have taken place.

Milwaukee Bucks Vs. Atlanta Hawks Odds

  • Bucks Moneyline: -130
  • Hawks Moneyline: +110
  • Spread: Bucks -2
  • Total: 215 Points

The NBA odds are in flux mainly due to the fact that Giannis Antetokounmpo is out indefinitely with no timetable for his return after suffering a leg injury in Game 4.

Without Giannis suiting up this season, the Bucks have gone 6-5 (22-26 all time) and the Bucks' second-best option, Khris Middleton, does not necessarily step up in scenarios without Giannis either.

In fact, from the time of Antetokounmpo’s last score at the 7:38 mark of the third quarter of Game 4, Middleton scored just eight points in the remainder of the quarter and zero points in the fourth quarter to total just 16 points on the game to go along with four turnovers.

For the Bucks to come out on top in this one, Middleton needs to do better which he is capable of doing.

Middleton averages 22.5 ppg, 6.3 rpg, and 5.6 apg without Giannis which is just a slight difference from his regular-season numbers.

With that, bettors could look into Khris Middleton’s player props which set his projected points at 27.5 points. Being that Middleton has not shown any sort of improvement without Giannis, bettors should not be fooled here by the Over and lean towards the Under.

In other news, Trae Young has been upgraded to a game-time decision ahead of Game 5 which is great news for the Hawks who will have a sire upper hand if he does play.

The Hawks have played nine games without Young and have gone 5-4 in those games. In those nine games, they have averaged just 104.8 ppg.

Being that Young was upgraded to questionable, he will certainly not be playing at 100%. This leaves odds to look at for John Collins who averages 21 ppg when Young does not play.

Collins' point total is set at 15.5 points, leaving a nice cushion for the over.

Those looking to cash out on this Game 5 can do so on Thursday at 8:30 p.m. EST on TNT.
