Knicks vs Hornets Pick: Knicks -5.5

The New York Knicks and Charlotte Hornets are Eastern Conference teams that have both struck fear into the hearts of opponents in the postseason in the past. And with the postseason not out of the realm of possibility for this year, they will look to pick up a win that helps them get back there. In this round of NBA picks, we look at Knicks vs Hornets and give you our best bet for this contest.

Charlotte Hornets vs New York Knicks Betting Pick

This game will be played at 1:00 PM ET at Madison Square Garden

Why bet the Knicks:

✅ The New York Knicks are the more motivated team heading into this matchup with the Charlotte Hornets. They are in a spot where they have to fight to avoid being seeded sixth in the Eastern Conference, which would mean a matchup with either the Nets or Bucks.

✅ The New York Knicks are also the best team in the NBA against the spread this season. The Charlotte Hornets are heading to the play-in tournament and have had a good year. But they are not on the level of the Knicks when it comes to covering the number.

✅ Most importantly, the Charlotte Hornets just don’t match up well with the New York Knicks. They don’t have a defender with the combination of agility and size to handle Julius Randle, and the Knicks’ best player should have close to another 30-point game against the Hornets en route to a win.
