New York Knicks vs Boston Celtics 11/01/2019 – After absorbing their fourth loss of the season against the Orlando Magic 95-83, the New York Knicks (1-4) are hoping to buck the losing trend on Friday when they lock horns anew with the Boston Celtics (3-1) at the TD Garden. On paper, online sports betting buffs should expect the Celtics to cruise to another easy win over the struggling Knicks. However, New York has been a solid bet on points against the spread and the +10.5 points winning margins could open the door for them to record their fourth ATS win of the season.

New York Knicks vs Boston Celtics Betting Picks

The Celtics have dominated their last 10 head-to-head games with their Atlantic Division rival, winning eight out of those games with the Knicks. Boston is averaging 110.80 PPG on 45.87% FG, while New York is scoring 98.20 PPG on 42.08% FG in those games. The Celtics beat the Knicks 95-118 in their last game.

Moneyline: The Celtics opened as huge favorites at -550 and they really are. With all the talent and experience they have on the team, they should win this game easily.

ATS: The Knicks though are 3-2 against the spread. I like their chances of covering the spread because I don’t believe they will lose by more than double digits.

TOTALs: The O/U total for this game is set at 216.5 points. New York is averaging 105.00 points per game. Boston is scoring 107.67 points per contest. The Knicks have gone under in their last four games, while the Celtics came short of reaching the totals for the second straight game too. I would say this game will go under given the team’s current streak.

Score Prediction: 104-95 Celtics
