Bucks vs. Hawks pick against the spread, best player prop for Game 6

We go over some of the best betting options for Game 6 of the Bucks-Hawks series in the 2021 Eastern Conference Finals.

Will Milwaukee advance to the NBA Finals?

The Milwaukee Bucks and Atlanta Hawks square off in Game 6 with the road team looking to seal the series and advance to the NBA Finals. Giannis Antetokounmpo is unlikely to play due to a knee injury, but Atlanta should get Trae Young back after missing the last two games due to a bone bruise.

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

Pick ATS: Hawks -2.5

The Bucks, frankly, played over their heads in Game 5. Brook Lopez and Bobby Portis crushed Atlanta in the paint, something that rarely happens to the Hawks. Clint Capela should be more active after playing limited minutes in Game 5 due to injury. More importantly, the Hawks will probably have Young back. He can be the best player on the floor and is capable of taking over the game.

Player Prop: Bogdan Bogdanovic over 17.5 points

Bogdanovic has been great for the Hawks, averaging 24.0 points in the last two games with Young out. Even if the star point guard does return, Bogdanovic will continue to get looks and be counted on to provide secondary scoring. Expect the shooting guard, who is averaging 13.7 points per game, to hit the over on this line.
