  • Eleven of the Knicks’ last 12 night games have gone OVER the total points line.

Brooklyn Nets Team Facts

  • The Nets have lost each of their last nine games as underdogs against Atlantic Division opponents following a win.
  • The Nets have failed to cover the spread in each of their last eight road games following a win.
  • Seven of the Nets’ last eight games as underdogs against opponents who are on the second leg of a back-to-back have gone UNDER the total points line.

Nets vs Knicks prediction

I’m not excited about double-digit chalk with the Knicks on the end of a back to back. However, the Knicks have won and covered 5 straight games against the Nets. Even with the rest advantage, the Nets have been in tank mode for a while, and they’ve failed to cover 7 of their last 10 games despite being massive underdogs nightly. The Knicks have covered 7 of their last 10 games, and they’re still looking to lock up a top-3 seed in the East. Big line, but this should be another Knicks’ blowout victory. I’ll lay the points.
