Sacramento Kings vs New York Knicks Betting Picks
The Kings have a 7-3 record vs. the Knicks in their last 10 head-to-head games. Sacramento is averaging 105.40 PPG on 42.84% FG, while New York is scoring 102.00 PPG on 42.97% FG in those games.
Moneyline: Neither team is NBA Moneyline betting favorites as they both opened at -110. However, I like the Kings’ chances in this game especially after that test-of-character win against the Jazz.
ATS: The Kings are 1-5 against the spread and will enter the game with +1 points advantage. Don’t rule out the game going to overtime though, since these teams are evenly matched.
TOTALs: The Kings and Knicks are two of the lowest-scoring teams in the NBA, combining for just 199 points. The O/U totals are set at 219 points for this game, which is just too high for these offensively-challenged squads.
Score Prediction: 101-98 Kings
