New York Knicks Betting

The New York Knicks are on a good stretch of wins by beating the Indiana Pacers and Cleveland Cavaliers on the road and their latest was a two-point victory over the Orlando Magic at the Madison Square Garden. The trade deadline has passed and they are retaining Marcus Morris for the entire season. Rookie RJ Barrett is back from his injury and with changes happening in the upper management, the future looks uncertain for this team still. But Knicks fans are hoping to get something to cheer about as NBA experts predict that this team is two or three years away from a full rebuild.

Detroit Pistons Betting

Like the Knicks, the trade deadline gave the team a big splash by trading away their franchise player for the last decade in Andre Drummond. It now looks that the Pistons are turning over a new leaf and hopes to start a new era of Detroit Basketball. Reggie Jackson is back from his injury but he has been reported to request a buyout on his expiring contract. This is the time that Christian Wood and Sekou Duombuoya should get their minutes up since Blake Griffin seems done for the entire season and Derrick Rose has been in and out of the roster. And for the first time in years, the Pistons are looking to rebuild from scratch.
