The New York Knicks are currently in third place in their division right now, owning a record of 19-258 on the season. The Knicks are just 19-28 on the season, despite having one of the best defenses in the league, allowing just 99 points per game on average. Carmelo Anthony is leading the Knicks offensively this season scoring an average of 27.1 points per game. New York has played well as of late, winning five out of their last six games.
The Knicks are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games against a team with a losing record, and the Knicks are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games overall, and 4-1 against the spread in their last five games when playing on one day of rest.
The Bucks are 1-5 against the spread in their last six games overall, and the Bucks are 0-4 against the spread in their last four games when playing on one day of rest.
The Bucks are bad, but I just can’t see giving the Knicks this many points on the road. I think Milwaukee gets the cover here, but the value looks to be on the total. With Milwaukee’s offense and New York’s defense I don’t expect there to be much scoring as the Knicks aren’t exactly lighting it up either. Tough call, but the under looks like the side to be on here.
