Saturday's best bets

Game 6: Milwaukee Bucks at Atlanta Hawks (-2, 216.5)

Bucks lead series 3-2

Kezirian: The Bucks responded off an embarrassing loss just as I thought they would and dominated Game 5. Similarly, I expect the Hawks to do the same at home. Part of that handicap is a likely return of Trae Young. Regardless, Nate McMillan rightfully criticized his team's effort and they should bounce back in front of their home crowd. Plus, the Hawks now have a better idea of how Milwaukee plans to attack without Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Hawks should fire from the gates.
