Knicks continue slide

New York is on a five-game losing streak right now following a 107-101 loss at Charlotte last night. The Knicks are 1-3-1 against the spread in this losing streak. New York is 17-41 on the season, 9-21 on the road, 30-27-1 against the spread and 32-25-1 with the under.

The Knicks average just 104.7 points per game on offense this season while shooting 44.1 percent from the field. Defensively, New York is allowing 111.7 points per game on defense while opponents shoot 46.4 percent from the field. Julius Randle is leading the Knicks with 19 points and 9.6 rebounds per game, while rookie RJ Barrett is adding 13.7 points and 5.0 rebounds per contest.

Philly beat up

Philadelphia suffered another road loss last night, suffering a 108-94 loss at Cleveland. Despite that, Philly has won 13 straight at home. The 76ers are 36-23 on the season, 27-2 at home, 24-31-4 against the spread and 30-28-1 with the under.

The 76ers are putting up 108.6 points per game on offense this year while shooting 46.3 percent from the field. Defensively, Philly is giving up just 106.5 points per game while opponents shoot 45.6 percent against them. The 76ers have some big injury concerns tonight. Ben Simmons is already out with his back injury and Joel Embiid is questionable with a shoulder injury. He played just eight minutes last night and is undergoing an MRI later today. Embiid is averaging 23.3 points and 11.8 rebounds per game. Tobias Harris is adding 18.9 points and 6.7 rebounds per contest.

NBA Betting Trends

New York

The Knicks are 4-1-1 against the spread in their last six road games, but 0-3-1 ATS in their last four games playing on no rest.


The 76ers are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 home games and 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 home games against a team with a losing road record.


Philly has won all three meetings this season, but the Knicks have actually covered in all three games. It’s been years since the Knicks have actually beaten the 76ers and Philly definitely is short-handed tonight. I wouldn’t expect Embiid to go. Philly has to be cautious with a shoulder injury with their big man. Despite Embiid and Simmons being out, I like Philly’s scoring depth over New York’s. The Knicks just don’t offer much in terms of offense and they really don’t make many defensive stops. Philly can spread the ball out a little more with Embiid not in the paint.

NBA Prediction: Philadelphia 76ers -7.5
