Hawks vs. Knicks Pick

NBA Predictions: Will Knicks cruise past visiting Hawks? 2/4/18

Are the New York Knicks a good bet to cover the spread at home this afternoon when they battle the Atlanta Hawks? Tip-off is at 12PM ET.

Who Oddsmakers Like: New York. According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Knicks are a 5-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 212 points. New York opened as a 5.5-point fave, while the over-under has gone up from 210.

Who the Public Likes: New York. As of Sunday morning, 61 percent of public bets have come in on the Knicks.

Injury Report: Hawks forward DeAndre Bemby is out until mid-February with a groin strain. For the Knicks, Knicks forward Joakim Noah is away from the team indefinitely after an altercation at a practice last month. Ron Baker is out indefinitely with a dislocated shoulder and torn labrum.

Who the Trends Like: Atlanta is 2-6 ATS in the last eight meetings. The over is 4-0 in the last four meetings overall and 4-1 in the last five meetings in New York.

Who We Like: New York has only won four of its last 10 games, but played nine of those games on the road. The lone home game during the stretch was a 111-95 victory over the Nets. The Knicks are 16-9 straight up at home this season, while Atlanta is a dismal 4-21 on the road. The Hawks have lost five of their last six and I don't expect them to show up here in the early start time.
