Saying "don't make me..."

is it correct to translate this meaning of "to make" as hacer? Would it correctly translate to "no me hagas...."?

Thanks!

Taking the most likely intended meaning, No me obligues is going to be a better translation.

"No me hagas adivinar" works. There are a few different ways to say it.
