Will the game between the New York Knicks and host Denver Nuggets be lower-scoring than projected tonight? Tip-off is at 9PM ET.

Who Oddsmakers Like: Denver. According to oddsmakers at, the Nuggets are a 5.5-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 213 points. Denver opened as a 4.5-point fave, while the total has dropped from 214.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Denver. As of Thursday afternoon, 58 percent of public bets have been placed on the Nuggets.

Injury Report: Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis sat out the last game due to a knee injury, but is expected to return to the lineup tonight. Kyle O'Quinn missed the last game with a calf injury and is questionable for tonight. Joakim Noah is out as he tends to a personal matter. For the Nuggets, Gary Harris has a foot injury and it is unknown if he will suit up. Kenneth Faried missed the last game with ankle soreness and is questionable for tonight. Paul Millsap is out until late February as he recovers from surgery to repair a torn ligament in his wrist.

Who the Trends Like: New York is 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings in Denver and 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings overall. The under is 6-0 in the last six Denver home games.

Who We Like: Denver gets credit for having a strong offense and it always has the potential to put up a big number, but the fact is that it hasn't cracked 105 points in the last seven games. New York has been playing high-scoring games on this road trip, but I expect the Knicks to have struggles putting up a lot of points against a formidable Denver defense. If Harris is able to play tonight, that makes matters even tougher. The Nuggets have been playing a lot of under games at home lately and I believe that trend will continue tonight.
