NBA Betting Trends

Dallas

The Mavericks are 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 road games. Dallas is 1-4 ATS in its last five games versus the Eastern Conference.

New York

The Knicks are 21-45 ATS in their last 66 home games. New York is 1-4 ATS in its last five games overall.

Prediction:

The Knicks have been pretty dreadful both on the road and at home for the most part aside from their strong performance in a 106-102 win at Dallas last week. But they've also been played the majority of their games on the road thus far and a return home could spark them after one horrendous quarter ruined the showing at Chicago. New York already has the confidence they can beat the Mavs and are getting seven points on their home court. Kristaps Porzingis will be fired up to play his former team again, but might press a little too much at Madison Square Garden trying to make a statement. I like the hosts with the points here.
