With the New York Knicks wrapping up the second seed in the East yesterday with their 90-80 home win over the Indiana Pacers, they virtually have nothing to play for tonight and if the rumors are correct, they will be resting every player worth a darn. Head to head, the Knicks are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
On the flipside, the Charlotte Bobcats want their win total up as high as they can get it. While the Bobcats have been just horrendous on the road all season long, they play at home over this last month has been really encouraging. Charlotte comes into tonight’s contest off a 95-85 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday and have now five of their last seven at Time Warner Cable Arena.
Bobcats are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Atlantic, but just 9-25-2 ATS in their last 36 home games vs. a team with a winning road record and 17-36 ATS in their last 53 home games. The Knicks on the other hand are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 road games, 19-6-1 ATS in their last 26 games playing on 0 days rest
It is tough to find lines to compare for this game, but one has to think the Knicks, regardless of who plays will be favored. The Bobcats have actually won 5 of their last 7 at home which is why I will take them with the points at online sportsbook usa.
