New York Knicks vs Atlanta Hawks Betting Picks

Top sports betting sites are still not convinced the Knicks’ four-game winning streak is for real. Online Bookmakers put the Knicks at +2.5 across the spread, showing that they are still pessimistic about the Knicks’ chance against the Hawks even though Trae Young has been listed as probable.

Moneyline: Bet on the Knicks at +125. I am starting to believe in the Knicks’ young core. Marcus Morris is gone but Julius Randle will continue to take the lead for this young, talented squad.

ATS: Pick the Knicks to cover the 2.5-point spread. I feel Young is going to put up a monster stats line whenever he decides to play. However, Elfrid Payton is proving to be a reliable player at point guard position on both ends of the floor. He will be the key in the Knicks’ win vs. the Hawks.

TOTALs: Back the UNDER at 226.5 points. Without Young, the Hawks put up 107 points against the defensive-minded Celtics. The Knicks scored just 95 points in a win against the Pistons. If Young is available, reaching the total is possible but then again the safer pick seems to be the UNDER.

Score Prediction: 107 – 104 Knicks
