Will the host New York Knicks prevail tonight against their crosstown rivals, the Brooklyn Nets? Game time is 7:30PM ET.

Who Oddsmakers Like: New York. According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Knicks are a 5.5-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under sits at 215.5 points. New York opened as a 4.5-point fave, while the total has dropped slightly from 216.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: New York. As of Tuesday morning, 73 percent of public bets have sided with the Knicks.

Injury Report: Nets forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson missed the last game with a groin strain and will be out again tonight. Caris LeVert missed the last game with a groin strain and is also out tonight. Jeremy Lin is out for the season with a ruptured patellar tendon. For the Knicks, Enes Kanter is likely to play despite having a lacerated upper lip. Joakim Noah is out indefinitely due to a personal matter.

Who the Trends Like: Brooklyn is 1-5 ATS in its last six meetings in New York. The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings overall, but the under is 16-5 in the last 21 meetings in New York.

Who We Like: The Knicks have won all three meetings this season fairly convincingly. Add in the fact that the Nets will be without a couple spark plugs in Hollis-Jefferson and LeVert makes me confident New York will finish off the season sweep tonight. Brooklyn can't match up with Kristaps Porzingis, while Tim Hardaway Jr. should also be able to put together a big night.
