Knicks vs. Magic Prediction

Will Knicks vs. Magic be low-scoring game for bettors? NBA Picks 3/1/17

Will tonight's matchup in Orlando between the Knicks and Magic fall under the betting total at 7:00PM ET?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Magic are 1.5-point home favorites versus the Knicks while the over/under currently sits at 214.5 points. Orlando opened as a 2.5-point favorite before the number dropped, while the total hit the board at 215 before falling to 214.5.

The Knicks enter play having lost seven of their last 10 games and are just 3-7 against the spread during that same stretch. They do own a winning record against the spread overall at 31-29, but they're just 14-15 ATS on the road.

The Magic are also just 3-7 over their last 10 games, both on the hardwood and at the betting window. They're 24-35 against the spread on the season, which includes an atrocious home mark of 8-20 ATS.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

OUR PREDICTION: I don't trust either of these teams to cover a point spread right now, so let's take a look at the total. The under is 3-1-1 in the Knicks' last five games overall and has cashed in seven of their last eight games when they play a team with a winning percentage below .400. The under is also 10-1 in the Magic's last 11 home games, is 4-1 in their alst five games overall, and has cashed in four of their last five games when coming off an ATS win.
