New York Knicks Betting
The New York Knicks have elevated themselves after trading for Derrick Rose. The reunion between Rose and Coach Tom Thibodeau is doing wonders for them and pushed the team to be on a three-game winning streak. Their most recent win was against the Atlanta Hawks in which they prevailed by a wide margin of 11 points, 123-112. Julius Randle keeps on improving as he posted All-Star numbers of 44 points, nine points and five assists. RJ Barret is shooting better doing 8-for-14 to finish with 21 points, six rebounds and three assists. Immanuel Quickley came off the bench with 16 points while Rose had eight markers.

Orlando Magic Betting
The Orlando Magic have only won one for the last five games. This dip has been due because of the injuries that continue to hamper the team as Evan Fournier and Cole Anthony add up to the list. It is still questionable if Fournier will be able to play but Anthony is ruled out already. This puts a lot on the shoulders of Nikola Vucevic to carry the team and they need Terrence Ross to be more consistent. They were able to pick up a good win against the Sacramento Kings but were not able to follow it up with a 19-point loss against the Phoenix Suns. This team had the talent but keeping their roster intact has been their biggest problem.
Players to Watch: N. Vucevic C 28 GP 28 GS 33.4 MIN 23.7 PTS 2.1 OR 9.4 DR 11.4 REB 3.4 AST 1.1 STL 0.6 BLK 1.7 TO 1.7 PF 2 AST/TO 24.16 PER
