Here we are looking at the Knicks, who have been tough at home with a 12-9 mark against the Rockets who are a good team overall, but not so good on the road at 12-11. We have a team with a better record according to the home/away venue records of each getting points, immediately spotlighting value on the home side. The Knicks haven't built the home record by beating inferior teams. It is quite the opposite as they own five outright wins against teams with a winning record on the season at home. The Rockets have been a no-show playing teams with a less than .500 record on the road where they have fallen to the number four straight times and have lost two of them straight up. The Knicks are noted for their run-and gun-style, but their numbers have been padded to the point of them turning huge profits on the UNDER which has cashed in 20 of their last 28 games. The Rockets are a defense-first team, and have played their last three totals of 200+ to the UNDER. The Knicks have another reason to be sharp tonight, as they carry the memory of their 20-point beatdown in Houston. I like the Knicks, and the UNDER here.
