Knicks vs. Suns Prediction

NBA Picks: Knicks hot at betting window - will they cover vs. Suns? 12/13/16

The Knicks are hot at the betting window but will they cover as a road favorite tonight when they visit the Suns tonight at 9:00PM ET?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Suns are 3.5-point home underdogs versus the Knicks while the over/under currently sits at 219.5 points. As of this writing, neither the point spread nor the total have moved off the original numbers.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

KNICKS KEY TRENDS: The Knicks are 5-0 against the spread in their last five road games, are 6-0 against the number in their last six games playing on one day of rest, and are 6-1 at the betting window in their last seven games overall. They're also 5-1 against the spread in their last six games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game and are 6-0 ATS in their last six games versus an opponent with a losing record.

SUNS KEY TRENDS: The Suns are 20-5-1 at the betting window in their last 26 games coming off an ATS loss, are 12-3-1 against the spread in their last 16 games versus an opponent with a winning record and are 21-6-1 ATS in their last 28 games coming off a loss. They've also covered in 13 of their last 18 games playing on only one day of rest.

OUR PREDICTION: The trends listed above paint the Suns in a positive light but where they've struggled to cover is at home. They're just 1-5 against the spread in their last six home games and are also 2-9 against the number in their last 11 games versus Atlantic opponents. The Knicks will attempt to win their seventh game in their last eight contests and Jeff Hornacek will be motivated to beat the team that fired him back in February of this year. I expect he'll have his team motivated as well.
