This Game 5 Eastern Conference Finals matchup between the Atlanta Hawks vs Milwaukee Bucks is full of huge question marks, but I’ve got the answers to fill your pockets with cash this Thursday Night, so stay tuned to this sports betting breakdown and follow these Free Expert NBA Picks and Prob Bets plus free access to our MLB Premium Pick of the Day.

Let’s jump right into this game 5 that’s set to tip off, Thursday July 1st at 8:30pm et at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukeet. The latest Draftkings NBA Odds have the Bucks listed as a -2.5 point favorites with the over/under at 216 total points. 64% of the NBA betting public have their money behind Atlanta as the road underdog. NBA futures odds list the Hawks at +550 and the Bucks at +400 to win the 2021 NBA Finals.

Milwaukee comes into this game off after getting destroyed by 32 points by Atlanta without Trae Young on the floor. On top of that beating they endured, everyone witnessed the scary incident in the third quarter when Giannis went down after hyperextending his left knee. On Wednesday, he went through all the testing needed to see how bad of an injury it really is, but the latest reports are saying it’s looking like it’s going to be season ending. As of now his status for the remainder of the series is unknown, but it doesn’t look like he’ll be suiting up for this one. Without the 30 points per game of offensive production Giannis brings to the table, Jrue Holiday, Bobby Portis, and Khris Middleton will need to play lights out if they want to move to the Finals and lose to the Clippers or the Suns. Speaking of Khris Middleton, he played horrible last game, going 6 of 17 from the field and 0-7 from 3-point land. With those numbers, you guys know that our prop bet on him didn’t end up covering, but we’re tripling down and riding with him again with a prop bet I’ve had my eyes on. To get free access to it, just comment text “prop” to 702-234-0597 and I’ll reply back once it’s released to the public before tip off. I’m confident on this prop and once again I’m tripling down on it, so don’t miss it.

This Atlanta team is full of momentum after their huge game 4 win without their best player, Trae Young. In his absence, veteran point guard Lou Williams filled in and came up huge, dropping 21 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists. For Game 5, Trae Young will be a game-time decision due to the his right foot injury. Clint Capela will also be a game-time decision after taking an elbow to the eye late in Game 4, but we expect him to play. In the last matchup, Atlanta shot 50.6% from the field and 34% on 3-pointers while holding the Bucks to just 39% from the field and 20% from 3-point land.

Atlanta is 12-6 against the spread in their last 18 games and the Hawks are 5-4 overall this season without Trae Young. The Bucks are 14-1 straight up in their last 15 games at home. Milwaukee was 6-5 without Giannis this season, but scored an average of 116.4 points in those games.
