New York Knicks Betting

The New York Knicks have now dropped their last three games, two of which they failed to score at least 100 points. The Knicks’ offense regressed after losing Marcus Morris to a trade. Julius Randle is putting up solid numbers in a starring role, but the Knicks young guns must step up in order for the Knicks to stay competitive in their remaining games.

Players to Watch: Julius Randle (19.1 PPG, 9.6 RPG, 3.2 APG)

RJ Barrett (13.7 PPG, 5.1 RPG, 2.4 APG)

Reggie Bullock (9.8 PPG, 2.5 RPG, 1.5 APG)

Houston Rockets Betting

The Houston Rockets got their longest winning streak since ushering the small-ball era. Their last three wins, especially against title-contenders like the Boston Celtics and the Utah Jazz, only reinforced the idea that playing with no legitimate starting center can actually work. Russell Westbrook has been super-hot during this run, dropping big numbers almost at will in each game.

Players to Watch: James Harden (35.2 PPG, 6.4 RPG, 7.4 APG)

Russell Westbrook (27.2 PPG, 7.9 RPG, 7.2 APG)

Eric Gordon (15.1 PPG, 2.0 RPG and 1.5 APG)

New York Knicks vs Houston Rockets Betting Picks

The Rockets are the hands-down betting favorite here for obvious reasons. The duo of James Harden and Russell Westbrook has been devastating for opposing teams, particularly on the offensive end of the court. With the Knicks still finding their identity, this game should be the easiest pick on Monday’s schedule for NBA parlay betting enthusiasts.

Moneyline: Bet on the Rockets at -1400. The smart money is on Houston, who is 13-4 against Eastern Conference teams all season long.

ATS: Pick the Rockets to cover the double-digit spread. I don’t know if the Knicks can put up a good fight against a team that beat elite opponents by double-digit points.

TOTALs: Pick the OVER at 228 points. The Rockets scored 135 points against the Warriors with Westbrook sitting out most of the second half after getting a pair of technical fouls.

Score Prediction: 130 – 103 Rockets
