NBA FREE PICK: Take Denver. According to latest NBA trends, New York Knicks are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a S.U. loss, 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game. Denver is 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a SU win of more than 10 points,  11-0 ATS in their last 11 home games vs. a team with a winning road record,  17-4-1 ATS in their last 22 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game, 19-6-1 ATS in their last 26 games playing on 1 days rest, 23-9 ATS in their last 32 home games and favorite is 17-7 ATS in the last 24 meetings.

The Knicks (38-23 SU, 30-29-2 ATS, 27-32-2 O/U) are having a rough time right now. Carmelo Anthony (knee) is not 100 percent and Amare Stoudemire (knee) is out until the playoffs. The Knicks lost at Golden State, 92-63 on Monday. Denver (43-22 SU, 40-24-1 ATS, 38-27 O/U) may be the most dominant home team in the league, winning 28 of 31 games and 13 straight. They have also won nine straight overall and covered eight (pushed one). Anthony is also returning to the city where he played the first 7 ½ seasons of his career. Denver traded Anthony to New York in February 2011 but hasn't played at Denver since then. Anthony had just 14 points against Golden State and will have a hard time in Denver against a crowd that should be against him. Denver should squash the Knicks at home to continue their winning streak.
