Bet Tonight's NBA Action

The Knicks are having a rough go of things at the moment, losing back-to-back games and four of their last five overall. In their 107-105 loss to the Suns on Saturday, Kristaps Porzingis hit 7-of-13 shots and scored 14 points while Joakim Noah returned to action but failed to score a single point. He did have 15 rebounds, however.

The Pacers are also coming off back-to-back losses at the Lakers and at the Jazz, and have lost in three of their last five games. Monta Ellis scored 15 points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-poiners in 33 minutes in the loss to Utah, while Paul George was ejected for arguing with a ref. Granted, he fouled out anyway, so the ejection didn't hurt his playing time.

OUR PREDICTION: The Jazz have been a great team to back at the betting window when playing the Knicks at home, covering in nine of their last 10 games in Indiana versus New York. The favorite is also 13-4 against the spread in their last 17 games between these two teams while the home squad has covered in 20 of the last 27 meetings. The Pacers have covered in four of their last five home games and in all five of their last five conference games as well.
