The New York Knicks will host the Utah Jazz at MSG tonight. The game is a 7:30 tip and is an important game for both teams. Get NBA odds from Bovada sportsbook.
The Knicks have a record of 37-22 on the season and are currently the 3rd seed in the Eastern Conference. Age may be catching up to the Knicks and it remains to be seen if star forward Carmelo Anthony will play tonight for the Knicks after missing the last 2 games with an injury. Although the Knicks are just 3-2 in their last 5 games they have a top 10 offense and defense this year and have played very well at home.
The Jazz lost last night to the Bulls in a close game and now find themselves in an all out battle for the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference with the Lakers. They are ½ game up on Los Angeles and seem to be fading to say the least. The Jazz enter this game having lost 3 straight games.
The Knicks will come out motivated after their loss to OKC and for that reason I expect the Knicks to cover the 7.5 at the sportsbook.
