3 units on New York PICK (-110) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: win

3 units on Game Total OVER 205 -110 (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: loss

The Knicks are a team that is a no-show against the poor teams in the NBA as witnessed by their last three at home vs. teams with a losing record. They were favored in all three, and lost all three straight up. It has been a different tale vs. the good teams. The Knicks own five straight-up wins as an underdog at home against .500+ teams in the last two months. Overall, they are 26-10-1 ATS when posted as an underdog either home or away. The Hornets are not buzzing after a loss; they are just 1-6 ATS after a losing endeavor. I like the Knicks in this one as well as the OVER. The Knicks went 26 games in a row over 100 points, then hit a bit of a slump, but are over 100 again three straight times. The Hornets aren't as defensive on the road as they have allowed 100+ just six times on the season at home, but 12 times on the road. The Knicks have played 16 of their last 21 as a dog to the OVER, as well as 11 of their last 15 at home have gone to the OVER. I’m on the Knicks and the OVER here.
