The New York Knicks are on the road this Friday for a matchup with the Washington Wizards in a game the bookmakers think will be razor tight.
New York Knicks
The Knicks are coming off of back to back losses against the Miami Heat who seem to be turning things around a bit, but up to this point this season has to be seen as a success, as this Knicks team has made plenty of improvements off of last year.
Julius Randle has been an absolute revelation and is playing at a level most thought was out of his reach and RJ Barrett has also been able to chip in with important contributions as he is another one who has taken a step forward in his development.
The Knicks also decided to bring D-Rose in from the Pistons, so the upper management also sees this year as their chance of making the playoffs and I think Rose was a perfect edition to this ball club. He gives them a superstar veteran who can help out with the younger guys and help hold things together in the locker room and I think that could pay dividends if this team does happen to make a run at the postseason.
The Wizards are coming off of a bitterly disappointing defeat to the Toronto Raptors, as they were blown out against a Raptors team that very few are impressed with. A lot of what that game came down to was 3 point shooting as the Raptors were able to shoot nearly 60% while the Wizards were only able to hit 29.3% of their shots from deep.
That shooting percentage might not get too much better here, as it is currently being reported that Bradley Beal will be rested for this game, so the vast majority of this team’s offense is wiped out right there, so I would not expect the best version of the Wizards here.
Is the Wizards are going to have any chance in this one it is going to have to be the likes of Rui Hachimura or possibly Davis Bertans getting hot from deep, as I feel the Knicks are better than them in most areas of the court.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Knicks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.
- Knicks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest.
- Knicks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up loss.
- Wizards are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.
- Wizards are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.
- Wizards are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record.
Free New York Knicks vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
The Wizards are one point favorites as it stands right now, but I do doubt that they will be favorite come tip-off, as I see the money coming for the Knicks in this game with Bradley Beal being out for this one. Beal is just way more important to the Wizards than that number would suggest, so I think there is plenty of line value on this game at -1.
The Wizards have not been able to defend anyone this year, but they have been particularly bad on the inside so I would look for Julius Randle to have a big game here on Friday night.
