The New York Knicks will be on the road to take on the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday, December 8th. The tip-off is set for 7:00 ET.
This is the second night of a back-to-back for the Knicks. It will be interesting to see how they perform.
Indiana started off as a 4 point favorite and that number is now up to 4.5. The total has gone from 213 to 212.5.
New York Knicks
The Knicks have been an up and down ball club this year. They have shown glimpses of what they can be, but they have also looked very bad at times. Simply put, they need to get more consistent if they wish to make the playoffs.
This team has lost three of their last four games. Even though their record is not great, knocking off the Pacers will be no easy task for them.
Some people were under the impression that this squad would be better than they were a year ago. So far, that has not been the case.
In reality, this team is still a true number one player away from winning it all. Julius Randle is a nice player, but if he is your best player, you are not winning the chip. That is just the fact of the matter.
New York beat the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday by a score of 121-109. They did just what they had to against a bad team. Now they need to string some wins together.
RJ Barrett was the leading scorer in the win over San Antonio. He finished the day with 32 points and 5 rebounds. Julius Randle chipped in 15 points, 7 rebounds, and 7 assists.
The Pacers just have not played well this year. For whatever reason, things are not clicking with this crew.
Indiana currently has a record of 10-16, which puts them in 13th place in the Eastern Conference. You have to be better than that, no questions asked.
I would understand their struggles a bit more if they were devoid of talent, but that is not the case. These guys have some solid players, but they just are not working out well together.
Indiana beat the Washington Wizards on Monday by a score of 116-110. That was a solid win for them and they will look to build off of that when they face this Knicks squad.
Six players reached double figures in the win over the Wizards. Domantas Sabonis was the leading scorer with 30 points and 10 boards. Also, Caris, LeVert had 19 points.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The total has gone over in 5 of New York’s last 6 games.
- The Knicks are 6-3 ATS in their last 9 games against Indiana.
- The Pacers are 1-8 ATS in their last 9 games played on a Wednesday.
- The Pacers are 17-3 SU in their last 20 games at home against New York.
New York Knicks vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Analysis:
This game features two teams that simply have to start playing better basketball. Neither team has been all that impressive so far this year.
To me, this game is more important for the Knicks because I at least feel they have a chance to get to the playoffs. On the other hand, I am not sure about Indiana’s chances.
Based on the trends above, one can conclude that playing at Indiana has not been all that fun for the Knicks. Maybe they can change their fortunes on Wednesday.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Knicks ATS
In this spot, I am not sold on the Pacers covering. They may win the game, but I cannot trust them with that number.
For me, the 4.5 is just too high to lay with a team that really is not that great. I see this being a very close game that comes down to the final minute.
