OUR PREDICTION: Even though the Knicks are struggling, they've been a great play against the Jazz. New York has covered the number in 10 of its last 11 trips to Utah and is 21-6 against the spread in its last 27 games overall versus the Jazz. The Knicks have also been a good bet coming off a loss, covering in five of  their last seven games in that situation.
