Cleveland Cavaliers at New York Knicks Pick
Very simply, the Knicks look too easy in this market. After winning by a fifteen-point margin at Cleveland and curating hosting duties, the Knicks remain a marginal dog in this market. This is in light of the fact, New York also has the better record and a near flawless dossier at the World’s Most Famous Arena. While there is reluctance to get aboard a public team like Cleveland, this situation may be one of the rare cases where it is warranted. The market is not convinced New York will pull off the stunt it did in Cleveland yet again, neither are we.
