The Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks will face-off in an Eastern Conference battle. Neither team ever has to travel far, as both are in New York.
On one hand, we have the elite Brooklyn Nets. They are vying for the top seed in the East have realistic championship aspirations. On the other hand, you have a Knicks team that will almost certainly be a playoff team as well. However on the Knicks side, any title hopes are not realistic.
When making Nets vs Knicks wagers, you must be able to consider every factor. That includes any recent injuries and whether one team is more fatigued than the other. Let’s dive right into how this game will go down and who will end up covering the spread.
Brooklyn Nets vs New York Knicks Betting Pick
This game will take place at 8:00 PM ET in the Barclays Center
Why bet the Nets:
✅ Knicks bottom feeding for wins. When looking at the Knicks record overall, it is a respectable even .500. When looking at how they’ve gotten there, particulalry recently, it paints a different picture. Since the last day of February, the Knicks have gotten seven wins. Six of those wins came agaisnt the bottom of the barrel of the league. There are nine teams that currently have 20 wins or fewer, and six of the seven opponents fall into that group. They are just 1-7 in that span agaisnt teams not falling into that grouping.
✅ Nets on form, despite absences. We know that Kevin Durant has missed significant time. We also know that James Harden has missed recent games. Through this, the Nets have persevered. New additions Lamarcus Aldridge and Blake Griffin have helped until the cavalry returns. Harden could return as early as tonight.
The Nets have rolled with those injury punches and continued their winning ways. They have won four of their last five and twelve of their last fifteen games. They have also won seven straight home games. Even if they are forced to play missing two of their stars once again, it is highly probable they beat the Knicks at home for the second time since March 15th.
The Pick: Nets -5.5
