3 units on Game Total UNDER 218.5 -110 (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: WIN

Under new Coach Mike D'Antoni, the Knicks certainly like to get up-and-down the floor. The problem is that the personnel on the Knicks don’t translate as well as the personnel in Phoenix did to find the results consistent. While the Knicks have had some big offensive games, they have also had more than their share of empty nights on the offensive end. Recently that has shown up loud and clear as the Knicks are actually averaging a tick under 100 points a game in their last six. Sacramento is another team that likes to play fast and free, but the talent isn't there, and often times they have dreadful offensive nights. This is a total that certainly can be reached by these teams, but it is going to require two inconsistent offensive teams to both have big nights and there is more likelihood that doesn't happen, so I'm playing this one UNDER the total.
