The Knicks are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games as a home underdog of 0.5-4.5, 6-0 ATS in their last 6 home games vs. a team with a winning road record and 19-7 ATS in their last 26 home games.

As a fan we hope this game can match last Sunday’s matchup between the Heat and the Bulls. LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and the crew could find themselves back in MSG a couple weeks from now as this may be a possible first round playoff series preview. The Heat come into this game having lost 3 of 5 games and in the process have pretty much solidified the fact that they will have the number two seed. The Knicks are winners of 4 of 5 games and their only loss during that stretch was to the Bulls which is nothing to be ashamed of.

New York has played very well lately which definitely gives them a chance to win this one at home. We like Miami’s motivation factor in this one however. Miami will perceive this game as having something to play for and we think that makes them a good option here. Wade and James tend to play best under the bright lights at MSG and will be looking to impress. Feel comfortable laying the minimal points in this game and take the Heat at sportsbooks.
