Knicks drop sixth straight

New York has lost six straight coming into this game, including a 113-104 loss yesterday at home to Boston. The Knicks are now 4-16 on the season and 1-8 on the road. New York is 10-10 against the spread while going 13-7 with the under.

The Knicks have struggled offensively all season, averaging just 101.6 points per game while shooting only 42.8 percent from the field. Defensively, New York is allowing 109.4 points per game while opponents shoot 45.8 percent against them. Marcus Morris Sr. sat out Sunday’s game with a neck injury and is questionable to play tonight as well. He has been leading the team with 18.7 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. Julius Randle is adding 17.2 points, 8.9 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game.

Bucks make it 11 straight

Milwaukee is coming off a 137-96 win over Charlotte on Saturday night for an 11th consecutive victory. The Bucks are now 17-3 on the season and 8-1 at home. They are also 9-11 against the spread and 10-9-1 with the over.

The Bucks have one of the top offenses in the league this year, averaging 120.2 points per game while shooting 48 percent as a team. They also lead the league in rebounding with 51.4 per game. Defensively, Milwaukee is giving up 109.4 points per game while holding opponents to 42.1 percent shooting. The Bucks are expected to be without Brook Lopez tonight due to a back injury. He is averaging 10.7 points and 4.9 rebounds per game. Giannis Antetokounmpo is leading the team with 30.9 points, 13.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game while Khris Middleton is adding 17.5 points and 5.2 rebounds per game.

NBA Betting Trends

New York

The Knicks are just 5-11 against the spread in their last 16 against Central Division opponents and 1-4 ATS in their last five games on no rest.

Milwaukee

The Bucks are 15-5-2 against the spread in their last 22 Monday games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games against a team with a road winning percentage below .400.

Prediction:

These two have yet to meet this season, but the Bucks have won eight of the last nine meetings while going 5-3-1 against the spread. New York is coming off a quick turnaround from a home game on Sunday and this will be its third game in four days. The problem is, the spread is so high. The NBA is a tough league to win by 16 points on in a given night. While the Knicks aren’t rested, they still have pro athletes. During this 11-game win streak for Milwaukee, only two have been by 16 points. Even during New York’s current slide, they only had one loss come by double figures. I will take my chances with the Knicks getting a lot of points.

NBA Prediction: New York Knicks +15.5
