LINE MOVEMENT

Golden State opened as a 10.5-point favorite before the line went up. The total has gone down since opening at 231.5. The line is set at 12 points at most books now, while the total can be found at 229 at certain places.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Monday afternoon, 82 percent of public bets have poured on the visiting Warriors. Online wager info also shows that 56 percent of bets are coming in on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Warriors star point guard Steph Curry is expected to play tonight despite dealing with a personal matter. The Knicks have three players out for the season - Kristaps Porzingis (torn ACL), Joakim Noah (sent away) and Ron Baker (shoulder surgery).

BETTING STRATEGY

We all know the Warriors are by far the superior team in this game, but they are also only 27-32-1 ATS this season. While the Knicks have had big-time struggles lately, they are still a respectable 29-32 ATS. Even with Porzingis out, New York does have some talent on the roster in the likes of Enes Kanter and Tim Hardaway Jr. Point guard Trey Burke was also exceptional last game, a 121-112 home loss against Boston. But the Knicks managed to keep the game against the Celtics competitive until the closing couple minutes and I actually expect the same tonight. New York is 16-13 straight up at home this season, so taking 12 points seems like a good deal.
