Knicks vs. Celtics predictions against the spread 10/24/17

Will the Boston Celtics cover the spread and keep the New York Knicks winless Tuesday night at 7:30PM EST?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Celtics are a 7.5-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under is set at 206 points.

The Knicks are 0-2 on the season after a 111-107 home loss to the Pistons. The Celtics are 1-2 following a 102-92 win at PHiladelphia. Boston won three of four meetings straight up and ATS last year. The over-under was 2-2.

New York blew a 21-point lead in the loss to Detroit. Kristaps Porzingis led the way with 33 points and five rebounds. Enes Kanter tallied 17 points and 10 boards. Kyle O'Quinn had 15 points and seven boards off the bench. Tim Hardaway Jr. added 14 points.

Kyrie Irving accounted for 21 points, six rebounds, four assists and two steals in the win over the 76ers. Al Horford contributed 17 points and nine rebounds. Jayson Tatum had 15 points and eight boards. Terry Rozier added 14 points and seven rebounds off the bench. The Celtics outscored Philadelphia 33-20 in the fourth quarter to overcome a deficit.

The under is 17-8 in the last 25 meetings between the Knicks and Celtics.

Bet on Knicks vs. Celtics

The Knicks have a ways to go before becoming relevant again, although they clearly have a centerpiece player in Porzingis. Boston is still reeling due to the loss of free agent signing Gordon Hayward to a broken ankle in their opener, but the talent is still there to be a playoff team. Look for the Celtics to build on what they did in the fourth quarter at the Sixers and win another game convincingly.
