Knicks vs. Warriors Pick
Who Oddsmakers Like: Golden State. According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Warriors are a 16-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 225 points. Golden State opened as a 14.5-point fave, while the over-under has dropped from 226.
Who the Public Likes: As of Tuesday afternoon, 51 percent of public bets have come in on the Knicks.
Injury Report: The Knicks don't have anyone on their injury report. Warriors forward Andre Iguodala is probabl for tonight after missing the last two games with a calf injury. Jordan Bell is dealing with ankle inflammation and will be evaluated in early February.
Who the Trends Like: New York is 5-11 ATS in the last 16 meetings. The under is 5-1 in the last six meetings in Golden State and 4-0 in the last four meetings overall.
Who We Like: Even with a team as good as the Warriors, it's difficult to lay the points when the spread is this large. Golden State has only beaten one of its last 12 opponents by at least 16 points and that happened to be by exactly 16 points. Sure, the Knicks are coming off a porous effort in a 127-107 loss at the Lakers. But I expect a better focus here as everyone tries to bring their 'A' game against the defending champs. Take the points with New York tonight.
