Hawks to Win on Spread (+8.5)
The Hawks did it once again – they’ve won Game 1 of all three series they’ve played, all of which were away games since the Hawks are the fifth seed in the East. So, we were a bit surprised to see the spread stay the same as it was before Game 1 despite the fact that Atlanta won that game. This tells us that the bookies are still underestimating the Hawks, so our main Bucks vs Hawks prediction is for the Hawks to win the game, or lose by fewer than 9 points.
Kevin Huerter Over 13.5 Total Points
Trae Young was amazing in Game 1 in which he scored 48 points, but he will need more help in offense in Game 2 if the Hawks want to have a chance to win again. With Bogdanovic obviously struggling with a knee injury and unable to contribute as much as it’s expected from him, Kevin Huerter has stepped up in the last few games for the Hawks. He scored 27 points in Game 7 against the 76ers and contributed 13 points in Game 1 against the Bucks. So, he is getting into chances and we expect him to score at least 14 points in Game 2.
Jrue Holiday Over 19.5 Total Points
The experienced guard went off for 33 points in Game 1 despite only averaging 16.7 points per game in these playoffs. However, we expect to see another similar performance for Holiday since he has a favorable matchup against Trae Young, who is smaller than him and not that good on the defensive end. With that in mind, we won’t be surprised if Holiday scores more than 19 points in the upcoming game.
Bucks vs Hawks Game 2 preview – Can the Hawks surprise everyone again?
The result in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals shocked many since the Hawks once again managed to win Game 1 of the series away from home. But the Bucks will be out for revenge in Game 2, so let’s check both teams in more detail ahead of this game:
For the second time in the last three seasons, the Bucks are one step away from making the NBA Finals. This time, they are even bigger favorites than they were a couple of years ago, but they still lost Game 1 on their home court. The situation is the same ahead of Game 2 – the Bucks are favorites again according to the bookies. This is not a surprise since they are they had a better regular season record than the Hawks and they don’t have as many injury problems since they are only missing Donte DiVincenzo.
The Hawks keep on surprising us with each additional win on their incredible playoff run. The win in Game 1 in the Bucks vs Hawks duel was particularly impressive since the Bucks haven’t lost a single game in Milwaukee in these playoffs before the Hawks beat them, led by fantastic Trae Young. The team is still without Hunter and Goodwin, while Bogdan Bogdanovic is dealing with a knee soreness for a while. He played so far with this issue, but he is once again listed as game-time decision for Game 2.
