New York Knicks
The Knicks bounce into this evening’s matchup flashing a 23-24 record that ranks them 4th in the Atlantic Division and 11th in the Eastern Conference. Presently, the Knicks are pretty far behind in the playoff race considering that they’re 7-games behind the 8th seeded Philadelphia 76ers. From what we’ve seen out of New York this season, it’s pretty clear that the Knicks will not be able to bridge that gap. That said, it’s easy to understand why the NBA odds sportsbook lines are siding against Philly so decisively this evening. Nevertheless, New York will still take to the court this evening to try and prove they can topple the Knicks. It’s seems unlikely, but should online betting NBA players consider taking the upset line in tonight’s New York Knicks vs. Philadelphia 76ers matchup?
All things considered, there’s no reason to take New York this evening. The Knicks are in the midst of a massive slump and the opposite is true for Philadelphia. That said, there’s not much value in taking the 76ers straight up. Alternatively, players can opt to take them on the spread. Philly has posted a 30-22-1 record against the spread this season while the Knicks are 28-29 ATS.
The 76ers stroll into this Monday night pairing sporting a 28-25 record that ranks them 3rd in the Atlantic Division and 8th in the East. Recently, the 76ers came close to being usurped for the No. 8 spot in the East, which could have cost them a spot in this year’s postseason. However, the process didn’t hesitate to post an eye-raising win streak to help create a little room in the postseason race. Currently, Philadelphia owns a 2-game lead over the 9th place Detroit Pistons. It should also be mentioned that Philly is 10-games behind the conference-leading Toronto Raptors. But considering how inconsistent the 76ers have been this season, NBA betting fans shouldn’t expect them to compete for the top spot in the East. Especially since the Raptors and Celtics are currently locked in a pretty heated battle.
A look at both team’s stats will reveal that the 76ers have a massive advantage this evening. At the current moment, Philadelphia ranks 7th in scoring, No. 1 in rebounds per game, No. 3 in assists and 15th overall in points allowed per matchup. For comparison, the Knicks rank 21st in scoring, 9th in rebounds, 12th in assists, and 16th in points allowed.
