The over is 7-0 in Pacers last 7 overall. The under is 4-0 in Knicks last 4 overall. The Pacers are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in New York.

The New York Knicks are going to get the benefit of the doubt at home here, and they’ve won 7 straight preseason games. However, I’m not laying this many points with the Knicks. I just can’t do it. The Indiana Pacers looked good on both sides of the ball their last time out, and they’ll have chances to win his game outright if the defensive effort remains the same. The Knicks may win, but give me the Pacers and the buckets.
