Either the Milwaukee Bucks or Atlanta Hawks are going to break a long NBA Finals dry spell.

The No. 2 seed Dollars haven’t been to an NBA Finals considering that 1974 when Kareem Abdul-Jabbar belonged to the group. The No. 5 seed Hawks’ streak is even longer. Atlanta hasn’t been to the Finals considering that 1961. The group was the St. Louis Hawks at that time.

Milwaukee is a huge preferred to win the series and gets in Wednesday night’s Video game 1 and is providing Atlanta a great deal of points versus the spread. Milwaukee is now an 8-point favorite versus the Hawks after the line moved late Tuesday night.

Why is the line so huge? Atlanta is 21-22 on the roadway this year while Milwaukee is 31-10. Though the Dollars are simply 38-45 versus the spread out up until now in 2020-21.

Dollars games have tended to go over the total this year as the over has hit 44 times. But four of the last five games between the two teams have gone under the betting total. And five of the last six Hawks games have also hit the under. You may want to think about betting the under.

Yahoo Sports’ Jared Quay also thinks you should go with the upset on the moneyline. The Hawks won Game 1 versus the New York Knicks in the first round and likewise won Game 1 against the Philadelphia 76ers. He believes that will continue Wednesday night.

“Follow the trend and take the Atlanta Hawks moneyline on the road,” Quay stated.

Prop bet we like: Brook Lopez over 13.5 points
