New York Knicks
This is a one-off road game for the Knicks, who will have played multiple home games immediately before Monday’s tip and will fly straight home after to grace the New York City crowd a couple more times before a West Coast trip that begins next Tuesday.
In fact, New York has had a bouncy schedule since the start of the season. It played three games in a row at home from Nov. 14-18, the only such instance at home or on the road so far this season. It hosts Boston on Sunday afternoon in the second of two home affairs, having already lost to Philadelphia on Friday night.
Unless the Knicks upset the Celtics, they will surely begin the new week with the fewest wins in the NBA, in some sense. As of Sunday morning, the Knicks, Hawks, and Warriors all have just four wins but two of New York’s wins came against Dallas, which means it’s only actually beaten three different teams. (Of course, some of that has to do with the number of early double-ups or even triple-ups on a team’s schedule. The game on Sunday will be New York’s third already against Boston this season.)
There is no reason to believe the Knicks will go into Milwaukee and beat the Bucks on Monday but can they keep it close?
The Bucks covered fourteen with ease against the Hornets on Saturday and laid 14.5 a week ago against the Hawks (an Atlanta cover).
The Knicks got 12.5 in Philly over a week ago and didn’t come close to covering 9.5 in Toronto on Wednesday. Heck, they were getting 6.5 in Chicago a couple weeks ago.
This spot calls for at least fifteen points against the home team.
Especially because there is no one hotter. Saturday’s blowout of the Hornets was Milwaukee’s eleventh win in a row. It only came by forty-one points.
Back in the second game of the streak Donte DiVincenzo made his first NBA start, filling in for the injured Khris Middleton. Nearly three weeks later, Middleton has made three consecutive appearances off the bench.
Head Coach Mike Budenholzer has the depth to ease him back from a thigh bruise. Middleton has experience coming off the bench and, most importantly, the willingness to do it.
How long it will last perhaps nobody knows. But DiVincenzo fits in with the starters and that Milwaukee second team of Ilyasova, Korver, DJ Wilson and Pat Connaughton, led by Middleton, beats the Knicks’ — and a handful of other teams’ — regulars most nights.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Under is 11-4 in NYK last 15 games away from Madison Square Garden.
- Over is 23-8 in MIL last 31 Mon. games.
- Home team is 7-1-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings.
Free New York Knicks vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction: a blowout.
It should be. The only real notion that could scare me off is that the Knicks come in extra motivated to give a team with such a long winning streak its best shot. And they have shown the ability to at least play with some of the better teams around league this season when they’re aroused.
