Hawks vs. Bucks NBA Playoffs Game 5 Odds Preview and Pick
By: Doug Upstone
The NBA Playoffs have been fun and filled with surprises. They have also been marred with injuries to numerous brand-name players. Once again, this could affect the outcome of Game 5 between Atlanta and Milwaukee. On Thursday afternoon, the story broke Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo was – doubtful – for Game 5 and his return for this series is murky. At least he did not, according to reports, suffer structural damage to his left knee, but that might only be a consolation prize for Bucks’ fans if he cannot return for this series.
Oddsmakers like those at BookMaker (visit our BookMaker Review) and others dropped the total like an anvil from 219.5 to 215. How will this play into bettors’ picks? And now what side should you choose for the total?
