The New York Knicks and Charlotte Hornets meet Monday in NBA action at the Spectrum Center.

The New York Knicks could use a win here to snap a nine-game losing streak. The New York Knicks are averaging 107 points on 43.2 percent shooting and allowing 115.5 points on 47.6 percent shooting. Tim Hardaway Jr. is averaging 19.4 points and 2.6 assists while Emmanuel Mudiay is averaging 14.7 points and 3.9 assists. Enes Kanter is the third double-digit scorer and Kevin Knox is grabbing 4.3 rebounds. The New York Knicks are shooting 34.3 percent from beyond the arc and 77.4 percent from the free throw line. The New York Knicks are allowing 36 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.3 rebounds per game. The New York Knicks have lost their last three road games.

The Charlotte Hornets look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last 10 games. The Charlotte Hornets are averaging 112 points on 45.3 percent shooting and allowing 111.5 points on 46.5 percent shooting. Kemba Walker is averaging 24.7 points and 5.6 assists while Jeremy Lamb is averaging 15.2 points and 5.5 rebounds. Marvin Williams is the third double-digit scorer and Malik Monk is dishing 1.8 assists. The Charlotte Hornets are shooting 35.7 percent from beyond the arc and 78.7 percent from the free throw line. The Charlotte Hornets are allowing 34.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.8 rebounds per game. The Charlotte Hornets have won six of their last seven home games.

The Knicks are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. NBA Southeast, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 vs. Eastern Conference and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 0 days rest. The Hornets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Knicks are 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Charlotte and 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings. The under is 5-2-1 in Hornets last 8 overall. The under is 4-1 in Knicks last 5 overall.

The New York Knicks have won four of the last seven meetings against the Charlotte Hornets and have been competing better despite their losses. The Knicks have lost nine straight, but they're only being outscored by an average of 7.2 points in their last five games. The Charlotte Hornets are as inconsistent as they come and not a team I ever look to lay big chalk with. The Hornets are winning at home by just 5.7 points on the season and are 2-3 ATS as a double-digit favorite this season overall. The Knicks are just 6-8 ATS this season as a double-digit underdog. This isn't a game I'd play personally, but I want the points if forced to play this contest.

Pick:
New York Knicks +12
