New York Knicks Betting
The New York Knicks try to bounce back after bowing to the Washington Wizards in their last game, 122-115. Despite their struggles this season, New York has managed to get out of the cellar with a 20-45 win-loss record. With 17 games left, the Knicks are just looking to finish out the season strong. Leading the way for them will be Julius Randle who has been dropping good numbers. Help will come from RJ Barrett and Elfrid Payton on the offensive end. Defense could use some work, seeing how they allow opponents 111.8 points per game. With Trae Young on the other side, that needs to improve.
Players to watch: J. Randle PF 62 GP 62 GS 32.5 MIN 19.3 PTS 2.4 OR 7.4 DR 9.8 REB 3.1 AST 0.8 STL 0.3 BLK 3 TO 2.7 PF 1 AST/TO 17.5 PER

Atlanta Hawks Betting
The Hawks try to get another win Wednesday night following a big double overtime win against the Charlotte Hornets. A win could push them ahead of the Knicks in the East, a consolation with the playoffs no longer within range. Trae Young will be the man to watch and offense alongside John Collins. Atlanta is averaging 111.5 points per contest and is holding down the opposition to 119.5 points. Lloyd Pierce needs to get his boys playing better defense, especially on Randle and Barrett.
