New York Knicks Betting

The Knicks dropped three straight games after a 123-105 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers last week. New York came to a basket short of ending the losing woes, but their neighborhood rival Nets held on to a 103-101 win. Marcus Morris once again led the team in scoring with 26 points on 9-for-17 shooting. The Knicks actually shot really well from the three-point line with 51.4 percent clip.

Players to Watch: Marcus Morris (19.3 PPG, 6.3 RPG, 1.4 APG), Julius Randle (16.3 PPG, 9.1 PPG, 3.8 APG), R.J. Barrett (15.1 PPG, 5.6 RPG, 3.6 APG)

Toronto Raptors Betting

The Toronto Raptors continue to get results despite the departure of Kawhi Leonard and recent injuries to Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka. With Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet leading the way, Toronto won their last four games and six of their last eight to stay in the upper echelon of Eastern Conference teams.

Players to Watch: Pascal Siakam (25.7 PPG, 8.5 RPG, 4.1 APG), Kyle Lowry (21.8 PPG, 4.2 RPG, 6.5 APG), Fred VanVleet (18.1 PPG, 3.9 PPG, 7.7 APG)

New York Knicks vs Toronto Raptors Betting Picks

The double-digit NBA spread on this game is just about right since everybody expects the Raptors to pummel the Knicks from the get-go. Toronto’s length, firepower, crowd-support, and championship pedigree would be too much for the inexperienced Knicks.

Moneyline: The Raptors are 3-0 SU against the Knicks in their last three matchups. If that record isn’t enough to convince you Toronto is winning this one, you’ve got a problem.

ATS: Betting on overwhelming favorites is always tricky. You never know when they will have an off-day. As for the Raptors, I feel the home crowd will play a key role for the Raptors to put the pedal on the metal early and cruise to an easy 20+ win.

TOTALs: The total opened at a low 209.5 points. This game presents an opportunity for bettors to pick the OVER, because while the Knicks might never reach the 100-point mark, I expect the Raptors to score 120+ points on sloppy New York defense.

Score Prediction: 128-101 Raptors
