Atlanta Hawks vs Milwaukee Bucks Odds For Game 2
Trae Young has made the 2021 NBA playoffs his own. He dominated the Knicks in their own backyard amongst the most hostile of atmospheres at the start of this run. And guess what? He did the same to Milwaukee in game 1 of the Hawks series against the Bucks. Young scored 48 points to steer his team to a 116-113 win over the Bucks in game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.
The odds were firmly in the favor of Milwaukee starting the series with a W, but as we predicted before the game, it was not going to be smooth sailing for Giannis and the Bucks who have struggled to maximize their potential in the last few seasons. It’s obviously not over for the Bucks yet, but they’ll be disappointed with the start. Giannis delivered 34 points, but will need more from Khris Middleton in game 2, Middleton missed a golden chance to tie the game in the closing seconds.
The odds for game 2 are pretty much the same as they were for game 1 despite the win for Atlanta. The Bucks are strongly favoured to come out on top again at -315 on the moneyline, while the Hawks are the dogs (again!) at +285. The spread is set at Milwaukee giving 7.5 and many bettors will be wagering on Atlanta to cover with that generosity!

Atlanta Hawks Preview
As we mention above, game 1 was once again the Trae Young show. Young showed again that he just loves playing on the road and shutting up home fans. Here’s what Young said post-game “Ever since I was in middle school, when I was going on the road in middle school, I always loved playing on the road. I loved playing against an opposing crowd, an opposing team. It feels like you’re really with your team, and it’s just them in the building. I think that really brings our group together.” And does it show! Game 2 will rest on Trae Young outscoring Giannis Antetokounmpo again and if he does the upset is well and truly on. The Hawks are still priced at +750 for the NBA Championship – they're clear underdogs, but that’s just how they like it.
Milwaukee Bucks Preview
It wasn’t just the bookmakers that were expecting the Bucks to take game 1, the Milwaukee crowd and expert analysts made them huge favorites. But they just couldn’t quite deliver. Again. It’s becoming a bit of a theme for Milwaukee in the Giannis era, but they know there’s still a long way to go in this series. They’re still the favorites to progress to the finals, but they need to get their act together as we know how tough Atlanta are to break down. Khris Middleton will be disappointed with his performance in game 1, but if he can get back to his best and support Giannis, they will be able to get back on track.
