This rubber band NBA betting series seemed like it was over before it even began. With Milwaukee Bucks star center Andrew Bogut ruled out for this round one NBA playoff betting matchup the Hawks dominated Game 1 and Game 2 and it seemed like this basketball betting matchup was going to end in a sure-thing sweep for Atlanta.
But then came Game 3 a scrappy win by the Bucks to give them a bit of breathing room and then came Monday’s shocking Game 4 where the Bucks beat up on the Hawks again and evening the series at 2-2 after a another scrappy 111-104 victory over the highly favored Hawks.
Entering the NBA playoff season there was hardly a series in the basketball odds action that the experts were more certain would end in a sweep or at the very least a dominant Hawks win. But that’s why they play the game and that’s what makes the NBA betting so exciting.
Bucks coach Scottie Skiles has done a tremendous job of getting the most out of his players in this basketball betting series, but most importantly he’s kept them from giving up even when they out manned and in a 0-2 NBA playoff betting hole. He has made this team believe and turned them into fighters and that’s why this NBA playoff betting series is tied at 2-2.
The Hawks on the other hand have squandered their once imposing 2-0 lead and now head back to Hotlanta with their tails between their legs and in desperate need of a win in front of the home crowd in the Game 5 NBA odds action.
The Hawks will win Game 5 at home as this team plays very well in front of an enthusiastic home crowd. Star SG Josh Johnson had another great playoff betting game on Monday with 29 points and 9 assists and will no doubt have another huge game in Game 5. And with a home record of 34-7 during the NBA betting regular season it’s all but impossible to beat the Hawks at home.
Still, if there is a team left in the NBA wagering action that can do it, it might just be the Bucks. Rookie PG Brandon Jennings had terrific Game 4 with 23 points and 6 assists. He sets the tempo for this squad and if he has a big night the Bucks have a sports betting chance.
