Hawks vs. Bucks pick against the spread, best player prop for Game 2

We go over some of the best betting options for Game 2 of the Hawks-Bucks series in 2021 the Eastern Conference Finals.

Will Trae Young go off again against Milwaukee?

The Atlanta Hawks meet the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 2 after the road team took Game 1. The Hawks are 3-0 in the opening game of a playoff series this postseason and will look to double up their advantage before returning to Atlanta while the Bucks attempt to level the series at 1-1.

Hawks vs. Bucks, 8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN

Pick ATS: Hawks +7.5 (-110)

The Hawks were always a good bet to keep things close with their perimeter shooting, but Trae Young’s ability to completely take over the game adds yet another dimension to this offense. The Bucks might win the game, but they’ve rarely been able to separate themselves late in games. The Hawks have proved they’re legit and should be the pick here. The public agrees, with 81 percent of the handle and 83 percent of bets coming in on Atlanta.

Player Prop: Giannis Antetokounmpo double-double (-625)

There’s not a lot of value on this prop for good reason; Antetokounmpo has tallied a double-double in every single playoff game this year. He’s averaging 29.3 points and 13.5 rebounds per game and there’s no reason why he won’t continue posting big numbers in both categories.
