So far on the season, I’ve got a 1-1 record when going to New York Knicks games. For anyone who’ll be at the game later on, hopefully, I’ll see ya there!
The first game was against the Pistons in the preseason and the Knicks looked phenomenal.
The second game was against Orlando when they embarrassed us in The Garden…so my presence isn’t always fruitful.
First loss of the season…I witnessed it!
The Mavericks have been white-hot as of late, having not lost a game since last year (lol).
The last time the Mavs suffered a defeat was all the way back on December 29th against the Kings, in Sac-Town, by just one point, and they didn’t have Luka.
Here are your best bets for tonight’s New York Knicks game
They’re currently coming off 6 straight wins and have been one of the better defensive teams in the league as of late also, holding 6 of their last 7 opponents to under 100 points.
The Knicks on the other hand have been having trouble stringing multiple wins together and have been struggling to keep all of their players on the floor.
The Mavs will UNFORTUNATELY be without the Latvian bozo as well as Willie Cauley-Stein tonight…I was really looking forward to booing him when I purchased these tickets.
The Knicks will of course be without Derrick Rose but could finally get back Nerlens Noel and have already gotten Kemba Walker back, although he’s listed as questionable still.
- Mavericks: -2.5 (-110)
- Knicks: +2.5 (-110)
- Mavericks: -145
- Knicks: +120
- 205 (Over -110/Under -110)
This game has Under written all over it.
As mentioned earlier, the Mavericks have been one of the better defensive teams as of late and so have the Knicks.
Over their last 10 games, the Knicks rank 7th in defensive rating while the Mavericks rank 1st.
Both of these teams play at a super slow pace, as the Knicks are dead last in the NBA while the Mavericks are 27th in pace this season.
With the spread being all over the place, as some betting outlets have it as low as +1 or +1.5, I doubt it plays much of a factor in this game.
But for argument’s sake, the Knicks are 19-22 against the spread this year while Dallas is 21-19.
If you needed even more of a reason to bet the Under here, Dallas has the highest percentage of games going ‘Under’ in the league with a record of 13-25-2.
And the Knicks rank 6th with a record of 17-24.
So far, the public’s money is on the Over which is great for us because the safest bet to take here is the Under. #FadeThePublic
And with the Mavs without their 2nd best player in Porzingis, I’m definitely leaning towards the Knicks pulling this one out.
Final Verdict: If you wanna take the spread, go for it but I’m taking the Knicks Moneyline straight up and parlaying it with the Under here.
