Hawks vs. Knicks Prediction & Pick
Talk about making an immediate impact. Josh Hart scored 27 points in Monday's win in what was just his second game with the Knicks after being acquired at the trade deadline. That wasn't even the best outing of the night as Jalen Brunson dropped 40 points. It goes to show that the Knicks are deep.
That depth should help them pick apart an Atlanta defense that has been struggling. The Hawks have allowed an average of 119.0 points on a shooting percentage of 50.0% across their last three games. They have also been pounded down low, giving up 53.3 points in the paint per game (No. 26 in NBA).
New York has won eight of its last 11 games against Atlanta, so trust the Knicks to get the job done.
Final Score Prediction: Hawks: 115 | Knicks: 119
Hawks vs. Knicks Best Bet
The Knicks cannot afford to lose three of their four matchups against the Hawks this season with a spot in the playoffs on the line. That is the scenario they are facing on Wednesday night. New York is one of only five teams in the Eastern Conference to own a winning road record this season (16-12).
Not only that, but the Knicks are 4-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last five games overall and 6-2 ATS in their last six games against an Eastern Conference opponent. On the other side, Atlanta has already lost 13 times as a favorite this season. I see that mark growing to 14 as New York prevails.
Bet: New York Knicks ML (+132)
