Pacers vs. Knicks Prediction
Is the under a good bet to cash tonight when the Knicks host the Pacers at 7:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Knicks are 5.5-point home favorites versus the Pacers after opening as a 6-point favorite late last night. As for the total, the number currently sits at 212.5 after hitting the board at 210.5.
PACERS KEY TRENDS: The Pacers are just 4-10 against the spread in their last 14 road games and are 8-20 against the number in their last 28 games playing on no rest. They're also 7-20 at the betting window in their last 27 games when their starting five players combine for more than 160 minutes in their previous game, which plays into how poor of a bet they've been playing on back-to-back nights.
KNICKS KEY TRENDS: The Knicks are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 home games, are 4-1 against the number in their last five games versus Eastern Conference competition, and have covered in 11 of their last 15 games overall. They're also 5-2 at the betting window in their last seven games coming off a loss and are 5-0 against the number in their last five games following a failed cover in their previous game.
OUR PREDICTION: The Knicks and under are both good plays tonight. The home team is 16-5 against the spread in the last 21 meetings between these two teams, the favorite is 11-4 at the betting window in the last 15 meetings, and the Pacers are just 3-8 against the number in their last 11 trips to New York. The under, meanwhile, is a perfect 4-0 in the last four meetings between these two teams in New York and has cashed in seven of the last eight meetings between these two teams.
