Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
New York Knicks vs Brooklyn Nets 10/25/2019 – One of the highly anticipated games in the opening week of the 2019-20 NBA season, the battle of New York will definitely draw the attention of NBA finals and sports betting buffs. The Brooklyn Nets, fresh from a heartbreaking 127-126 overtime defeat to the Minnesota Timberwolves, will play host to New York Knicks on Friday at Barclays Center. The New York Knicks also dropped their season-opener against the San Antonio Spurs 120-111 on their home floor, but a win over their neighborhood team will surely be a huge result for this young squad.

New York Knicks vs Brooklyn Nets Betting Picks
Start winning serious cash by betting on NBA games now. The Nets are 5-5 in the last 10 head-to-head meetings with the Knicks. Brooklyn averaged 105.40 points per game while shooting 43.70 percent from the field. New York averaged 109.30 points on 45.16 field goal clip across those meetings.
Moneyline: Brooklyn is -9 favorites to win the game as of press time with a 75.1 percent chance of winning, according to the ESPN basketball power index. The wisest bet is on the Nets as they are expected to dominate the game from start to finish.
ATS: Brooklyn has a 4-6 ATS record in the last 10 head-to-head games with New York. Still, I have a feeling that the opening night loss will motivate the Nets to play harder and beat the Knicks by more than 20 points.
TOTALs: Brooklyn scored 126 points in their last game and has a 4-6 O/U record in the last 10 games. Charlotte recorded 121 points in the opener and also has a 4-6 O/U slate. The O/U total for this game is set at 220 points. The Nets are going to capitalize on the Knicks’ lack of rim protection and elite-level perimeter defenders. Expect Brooklyn to torch the Knicks with at least 130 point output. The Knicks will also score more than 100 points for the second consecutive game, which is enough to exceed the O/U total.
Score Prediction: 130-105 Brooklyn
