Utah Jazz vs New York Knicks Betting Pick
Monday Night at 9:00PM EST at the Vivint Center
The Pick: New York Knicks +11.5
Why should you bet the New York Knicks?
✅ Deceptively strong road team: The New York Knicks actually carry a stronger winning percentage on the road than they do at home this season. Statistics track this as their average point differential is -3.6 at home at Madison Square Garden. While their point differential per game on the road is -0.3, which places them in the top half of the league.
In what is an odd trend, the Knicks offensive efficiency is quite similar at home and on the road, but their defensive efficiency is what improves away form home.
✅ Roster improvement: While there haven’t been any recent acquisition for the New York Knicks, they recently got wing Alec Burks back from injury. He is an upgrade and is arguably playing the best basketball of his career.
We also saw the emergence of guard Immanuel Quickley in their last game at Portland. He dropped 31 points in just 24 minutes. He was especially efficient from three point range, making five of eight shots from behind the arc. With more competence in the backcourt to complement the frontcourt, the Knicks are a more balanced and tougher team.
✅ Slower pace: The New York Knicks are the slowest pace team in the league, and with the fewer possessions. They allow just 103.6 points per game, the best mark in the league.
Despite a strong 12-4 record, the Utah Jazz have won zero games by more than 10 points in which they failed to score more than 115 points. The New York Knicks style keeps games closer and the Utah Jazz clearly do not run away with games without larger figures on the scoreboard.

on the underdog to simply win the game outright. If you are looking to wager on a game, for instance theUtah Jazz vs New York Knicks Money Line predictions. But if you want to avoid the point spread, a Money Line wager is worth considering.
For an example of how a Money Line wager differs from an against the spread wager, we will use our Utah Jazz -11.5 hypothetical example from above.

The New York Knicks can be bet on to win the game outright while getting odds.
