The Atlanta Hawks and Milwaukee Bucks meet in a crucial Game 3 contest Sunday evening with the Eastern conference finals tied 1-1. The Hawks stunned the Bucks late in Game 1, but Milwaukee won a blowout in Game 2. Here’s a look at how bettors should approach Game 3 as the series shifts to Atlanta.

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

Pick ATS: Bucks -4.5

No two games are alike as the first two contests of the series has shown. The Hawks have been good at home, but they only won one game there last series. Milwaukee is coming off a monster win and likely won’t shoot that well again, but the Bucks appear to have figured out Trae Young. Take the road team to cover the spread.

Player Prop: Giannis Antetokounmpo double-double (-670)

Game 2 was the first time in the playoffs Antetokounmpo did not tally a double-double, falling one rebound short. However, he’s still essentially a lock to reach the milestone. This player prop is very low on value, but is as close to a sure thing as there is in this crazy postseason.
