On Monday night, the Milwaukee Bucks (10-2 overall, 7-0 at home) will welcome the Atlanta Hawks (8-5 overall, 3-3 on the road), who were the first club to defeat them in 2022-23, to the Fiserv Forum for an Eastern Conference clash. The game is set to begin at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

This past weekend, the Atlanta Hawks were defeated by the Philadelphia 76ers by a score of 12 points, bringing their overall record to 8-5. While all was going on, Milwaukee was also defeated by the San Antonio Spurs in their final game on Friday. This was just the Bucks’ second loss of the season. But despite that, they are now in first place in the Eastern Conference.

Odds as of November 13th at OKBET.


On Monday’s game, Milwaukee is favored to win by four points at home and has odds of -172 on the moneyline. That equates to an expected victory probability of 63.24 percent. The Hawks come back at +144 and have a record of 2-3 against the spread (ATS) as underdogs so far this season.

These two clubs have already competed against one another twice in this season, with each taking home a victory in their respective matchups. On October 29, the Bucks played at home against the Atlanta Hawks and were successful in covering the point spread. The Bucks have an ATS record of 6-1 while playing at Fiserv Forum.

The Atlanta Hawks have had a strong start to the season, as seen by their victories against some quality opponents such as the Pelicans, Bucks, and 76ers. Both Trae Young and Dejounte Murray are contributing significantly to the success of the Hawks as a backcourt unit. Both players are averaging well over 20 points per game and are the Hawks’ most effective playmakers.

On Thursday, Nate McMillan‘s team prevailed against Philadelphia, but they were defeated by the 76ers on Saturday due to Joel Embiid’s extraordinary performance, in which he scored a career-high 42 points. Trae scored 27 points and handed out 11 assists for Atlanta, while Murray added 23 points and seven assists of his own.

However, the team’s dismal 25% 3-point shooting and total of 18 turnovers led to an astounding 34 points for the Sixers. That significantly influenced how things turned out. The Hawks have had trouble clearing the ball, ranking sixth in the Association with 12.7 turnovers per game.

12 games in, Milwaukee has the best record in the NBA and already seems to be a title candidate. Even better, they have a perfect 7-0 record at home, which is encouraging for Monday. With 31.8 points, 12.2 rebounds, and 5.3 assists, Giannis Antetokounmpo leads the charge as four other players average double figures. The most striking feature? The Bucks’ second-best player, Khris Middleton, hasn’t even entered a game yet.

Milwaukee’s 111-93 loss against the Spurs on Friday wasn’t great, but they were badly depleted. Due to the absence of Giannis and Jrue Holiday due to injury, the rotation is quite inexperienced. Holiday will be performing here once more, and The Greek Freak is scheduled to perform. However, there were a few standout performances from players who generally belong to the second unit.

Just two days after going all out for a career-high 36 points against the OKC Thunder, Jevon Carter scored a team-high 21 points, demonstrating his ability to step up when necessary. Nevertheless, the absence of Middleton, Antetokounmpo, and Jrue meant that the Bucks were outclassed by the Spurs, which was understandable.

Prediction for Hawks vs Bucks

Giannis’s comeback is unquestionably important for Monday. Simply said, I really appreciate how Milwaukee plays at home and how the supporting cast supports the franchise hero. In front of the Bucks supporters, an 8-0 record sounds nice.
