Bet Today's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: New Orleans. As of Sunday morning, 53 percent of public bets have been placed on the visitng Pelicans.

Injury Report: New Orleans guard Frank Jackson is out until late January after foot surgery. Tony Allen is out until early February after foot surgery. Alex Ajinca is out for the season after surgery to repair his patellar tendon. Solomon Hill is targeting a mid-February return after surgery to repair a torn hamstring. The Knicks have no injuries to report.

Who the Trends Like: The Pelicans are 6-13 ATS in the last 19 meetings overall. The under is 6-1 in the last seven meetings in New York and 12-2 in the last 14 meetings overall.

Who We Like: New Orleans has been maddingly inconsisent all season and it's been no different lately as they have traded wins and losses in its last six games. After winning a 119-113 decision at home over the Trail Blazers its last time out, this could be a letdown spot. The Knicks are back to 100 percent health after the long-awaited return of Tim Hardaway Jr. last game. He looked strong in his return and I believe he'll be a major factor as the Knicks record the victory today.
