Brooklyn Nets at New York Knicks Overview
The Nets come in off a loss that looks good on paper. As a 12-point dog, the Nets fell by just six points in Brooklyn to the mighty Golden State Warriors. Against the Knicks, the key to a Brooklyn victory was the Nets outmuscling the Knicks on the boards by a margin of 55-36. Despite all of this, the Nets won by just a possession against the Knickerbockers.
New York Knicks
Since winning their opening game at home against the Atlanta Hawks, the Knicks have embarked on a hideous skid losing their last five straight. Their previous game? Curating the same hosting duties for Golden State before when the Nets took the court against them. However, New York was blown out in the aforementioned contest losing to the Warriors by 28.
Reasons To Avoid New York
A presumption here is that the Knicks are the better rested of the team albeit they haven’t taken the court in three days and have been at home since the 25th. However, chances are you are paying a premium to back New York on its own court against Brooklyn in this case because the Knicks are a limelight team at MSG. It’s just normally they are not playing teams comparable enough for books to implement such a hidden premium.
Reasons To Back Brooklyn
From behind the three-point line, the Nets shot an incredulous 47.6% against the Warriors and rivaled them from the field as a whole as the Warriors nearly hit 50% of their shots while Brooklyn still nailed an impressive 48.3% of their attempts. Had Brooklyn been more effective from the charity stripe and not turned the ball over as much (15-12 in Golden State’s favor), perhaps an upset would of have been in the cards. Be that as it may, the Nets get to work out the kinks against a far weaker opponent.
