New York Knicks vs. Indiana Pacers 4/12/16 NBA Picks

Even though the New York Knicks have been eliminated from postseason play, can they give the Indiana Pacers a game when the two teams clash at 7:00PM ET?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Pacers are 11-point home favorites versus the Knicks after opening as a 9-point favorite. The total, meanwhile, opened at 199.5 before being bet down a full two points to 197.5.

Bet Tonight’s Knicks vs. Pacers Game

Carmelo Anthony won’t play tonight against the Pacers as he rests. He’ll miss the final game of the regular season for the Knicks after making it through 72 games while averaging 21.8 points, 7.7 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.5 triples and 2.4 turnovers per game on 43.4 percent shooting. Langston Galloway, Arron Affalo and Jerian Grant will be in the mix more offensively for the Knicks.

Meanwhile, Paul George is expected to play tonight but might see his minutes limited with C.J. Miles and Solomon Hill getting extra time. With Indiana already locked into a postseason spot, the Pacers might play it safe with George once they get a comfortable lead in the second half.

The Knicks have covered in five of their last six games and are a perfect 5-0 against the number in their last five games playing on one day of rest. On the other side, the Pacers are winless at the betting window at 0-7 in their last seven games following a straight up win of more than 10 points. Indiana should win tonight, but 11 seems like an inflated line.
