Atlanta at Milwaukee

1.5 units on Milwaukee -2 (-110) (risk 1.5 to return 2.86) RESULT: WIN
Trae Young's teammates stepped up and overachieved in his absence, which often happens when a star player goes down with an injury in the NBA, but it usually doesn't last more than one game and the Bucks will be in a similar situation with Giannis Antetokounmpo doubtful for Game 5 although he has no ligament damage to a hyperextended right knee. Milwaukee will depend on a more balanced attack and Khris Middleton will need come up with another performance as he had in Game 3. The Hawks shot 50.6 percent on Tuesday compared to 39.3 for the Bucks and those figures will even out tonight. Milwaukee won by 34 points its previous home game in this series while bouncing back from a loss. Take the Bucks.
