The New York Knicks are getting a lot of love recently on the betting board. It is hard to imagine that a team that is 50-17 this season is such a short favorite on the road to a club that is 27-40. It makes no sense. The New York Knicks are having bad season and is bad team. This bad team has beat up six bad teams in a row as the club will carry a six game win streak in this contest. The Knicks are 4 ½ games behind a bad Atlanta Hawks team for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern conference. They have beaten up the likes of the Bucks, Celtics, 76ers, Cavaliers and Jazz in recent games so we have seen value here on the Indiana Pacers. Indiana has had good success against the Knicks as the Pacers have won three straight and five of their past six games against New York. Indiana has covered three straight against the Knicks and have won five of six. Indiana will enter play winners of four straight games. They have motivation to play hard as the club has a three game lead over the second place Miami Heat for the Eastern conference top spot with just 15 games left to be played. Indiana can defend and the Knicks lack of flow offensively does not work against the style of defense that the Pacers play. You need ball movement to beat the Pacers and the Knicks half court lack of motion will play into the hands of Indiana.
