Knicks great fade material, visit Pacers
The Knicks are in the midst of a nasty funk and things won't get any easier tonight when they visit the Pacers at 7:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, Indiana is an 8-point home favorite over New York for tonight's game while the total has gone from 203 down to 202.5. (Shop the best spreads and totals at our NBA Odds Page.)
The Knicks have lost eight of their last 10 games and are also 2-8 against the spread over that same stretch, while the Pacers have won six of their last 10 but are just 4-5-1 against the number during that same span.
There's some value on the Pacers for tonight's game given how much the Knicks are in disarray. Carmelo Anthony questioned the team's desire following their loss to the Raptors on Monday and also wondered aloud about the Knicks' collective toughness following the loss.
With New York at 1-8 against the spread in its last nine games and 2-5 ATS in its last seven road games, you're betting the Knicks at your own risk. Plus, New York is winless at 0-7 at the betting window in its last seven trips to Indiana and is 2-6 ATS in its last eight games overall versus the Pacers. The favorite is 10-2 against the number in the last 12 meetings between these two teams while the home squad has covered in 10 of the last 12 meetings as well.
