Game 1: New York Knicks (+8, -110) at Atlanta Hawks, 7:40 p.m. EST

The Knicks, losers of a franchise-record 18 straight games, ​need a win more than any team in the NBA right now. New York blew out Atlanta on NBA's Opening Night, so it's certainly in them to take down a squad that isn't much better than they are in the ​Eastern Conference standings. In their last 12 games against the Hawks, the Knicks have gone 8-4 against the spread (ATS). Beyond that, in the Knicks' last five games against the Hawks on the road, New York has gone 4-1 ATS. 

Game 2: Oklahoma City Thunder @ New Orleans Pelicans (+4.5, -110), 8:10 p.m. EST 

The Pelicans are another team in disarray, following the ​trade request from All-Star Anthony Davis. After a lackluster performance in their last outing, the Pelicans could use this game to head into the All-Star Break on a positive note. New Orleans has been a solid home team with a 16-11 record on the year and are 4-2 ATS over its last six games against OKC. For a line that seems a little too low, this could be the weirdest line of the night. Take the home team and the points.
