New York Knicks Betting

The New York Knicks now have an 18-17 record and have won seven of their last ten games. They are on a three-game winning streak and their last opponent was the worst team in the NBA Eastern Conference, the Detroit Pistons. Julius Randle has propelled himself into one of the best players in his position in the entire league and thanks to the magic wand waived by Coach Tom Thibbodeu. Derrick Rose, the former league MVP has been starting for the Knicks and did wonders for the team. This team is on a momentum and will look to make a good push for a good playoff spot.
