The New York Knicks will continue their fight for the playoffs when they travel across the river to face the Nets in Newark. Up to date odds information for all sports can be found at Top Bet sportsbook.
The nets have been playing for pride for a while now and would love to play their role of spoiler in this one. The Nets are equally bad on both the offensive and defensive ends this season as they rank 22nd in the league in both categories. New Jersey has lost their last two games with their most recent loss coming to the Miami Heat on Monday by a score of 101-98 on Monday.
While the New York Knicks are a long shot to win the Atlantic Division they are still on track for a playoff berth in the East with every game from here on out being very crucial to their chances. They are in a must win every single game they play as was evident by their 118-110 victory over the Celtics last night at home. The Knicks cannot afford a loss to a team like the Nets in this game tonight either.
The Nets are just 2-4 against the spread in their last six games against the Knicks, and the Nets are just 1-8-1 against the spread in their last ten home games against New York. The Knicks are an impressive 5-1 overall in their last six games against the Nets.
The Knicks are favored by a lot for being a road team, but they will be extremely motivated tonight as they strive for the playoffs. We do not think they will take the Nets likely and we like the Knicks by double digits as well but before placing a wager check the sports odds.
