Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: As of Wednesday afternoon, 67 percent of public bets have been placed on the Wizards.

Injury Report: Knicks shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr. has a stress reaction in his lower left leg and is out until mid-January. Point guard Ron Baker has an orbital fracture and his status is questionable. Washington doesn't have anyone of significance who is injured.

Who the Trends Like: New York is 1-5 ATS in its last six meetings overall and 1-3-1 ATS in its last five meetings in Washington. The over is 5-2 in the last seven meetings.

Who We Like: New York has lost five of its last six games, a stretch where Kristaps Porzingis has returned to health after missing a few games with a sprained ankle. The only losses by nine or more points in that stretch were a pair of defeats against San Antonio. While the Wizards are a solid team, I expect the Knicks to show some desperation tonight and stay within the number. Look for Porzingis to put his team on his back.
