NBA Predictions – Brooklyn Nets vs. New York Knicks 11/9/16

Will the New York Knicks take advantage of a banged-up Brooklyn Nets team when the two meet tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Knicks are favored at home tonight, as the Knicks are getting odds of -8.5 points against the Nets. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 212.5 points. The home team has won and covered the spread in four straight meetings between these two.

Bet on Nets vs. Knicks

The Nets are coming off a 119-110 win over the Timberwolves last night. Brooklyn was a 4-point home underdog, giving them a cover to move to 6-1 on the season against the spread. The Nets are now putting up 105.6 points per game this season while allowing 107.7 points per game. They continue to be without point guards Jeremy Lin and Greivis Vasquez due to injuries and Brook Lopez is expected to be given the night off tonight. Lopez averages 20.5 points per game while Lin was putting up 15 points per contest before getting injured.

The Knicks are coming off a 114-109 loss to the Jazz back on Sunday. The loss dropped New York to 2-4 on the year and 2-4 against the spread. They are just 1-2 overall and against the spread at home this season. The defense has been a big issue for them, as they are allowing 109.8 points per game this year while averaging just 102.2 points per game on offense. The defensive point total ranks 26th in the NBA right now. Unlike the Nets, the Knicks come in healthy.

The Nets are coming off a game last night and they are just 8-9 against the spread since 2015 when playing on no rest. With Brooklyn set to rest Lopez, I see them having a hard time scoring. The Knicks aren’t very good on defense, but they should be able to limit this offense that will be lacking in scoring options. Go with the Knicks to win big at home tonight.
