The New York Knicks and Denver Nuggets meet Thursday in NBA action at the Ball Arena. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Knicks vs Nuggets prediction.

New York Knicks

The New York Knicks have been in great shape as they’ve won five of their last six games overall and they will be aiming for a fifth straight win after outlasting the Warriors in a 119-112 road win on Monday. Jalen Brunson led the team with 34 points and seven assists on 12 of 25 shooting, Miles McBride added 29 points, Donte DiVincenzo sccored 18 points while Josh Hart chipped in with 10 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists. As a team, the Knicks shot 48 percent from the field and 14 of 37 from the 3-point line as they opened the game on an 18-4 run to take control early and they just kept their foot on the gas, pushing the lead out to 15 points which was more than enough to hold off a late charge from the Warriors in the fourth quarter. The Knicks will face the Nets after this game.

Denver Nuggets

Meanwhile, the Denver Nuggets have been in terrific shape as they’ve won 12 of their last 14 games overall and they will be eager to keep it going after sneaking past the Timberwolves in a 115-112 road win on Tuesday. Nikola Jokic led the team with 35 points and 16 rebounds on 14 of 22 shooting, Michael Porter Jr added 26 points on nine of 15 shooting while Jamal Murray chipped in with 18 points and 11 assists. As a team, the Nuggets shot 51 percent from the field and 14 of 27 from the 3-point line as they jumped all over the Timberwolves from the start, pouring in 70 points in the first half to take an early 18-point lead, but they allowed the Timberwolves back into the contest and needed to close the final 6:50 on a 26-19 run to escape with the narrow win in the end. The Nuggets will take on the Trail Blazers, Grizzlies, and Suns after this one.

Denver Nuggets Team Facts

  • The Nuggets have won each of their last eight home games against Eastern Conference opponents.
  • The Nuggets have failed to cover the spread in seven of their last eight games as home favorites against Atlantic Division opponents.
  • Each of the Nuggets’ last seven games as favorites following a road win have gone UNDER the total points line.

New York Knicks Team Facts

  • The Knicks have lost 14 of their last 15 games at Ball Arena.
  • The Knicks have failed to cover the spread in each of their last four road games against Northwest Division opponents.
  • Each of the Knicks’ last five games against Northwest Division opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

Knicks vs Nuggets prediction

The Knicks are still missing OG Anunoby and Julius Randle, while the Nuggets are keeping an eye on Zeke Nnaji who is still questionable with that back injury. Both teams come into this meeting with plenty of winning momentum, so while I like the Nuggets to stay hot with another win at home, I expect the Knicks to play tough basketball and hang around long enough to get the backdoor cover.
