Head to head, the Clippers are 5-11 ATS in the last 16 meetings, while the road team is 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings and the underdog is 8-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings. The Knicks are 14-3 ATS in their last 17 games as a home favorite, 19-7 ATS in their last 26 home games and 17-6 ATS in their last 23 games overall. The Clippers on the other hand are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss, but just 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. Eastern Conference.
It is good to see a game being played tonight that actually has meaning attached to it like this one does. The Knicks are in the 7th spot right now in the east, but that could change one spot up or down depending on the results of their next two games and how the Magic and 76ers fair in their remaining games. The Clippers lost their opportunity to win the division when they lost last night to Atlanta, but needs a win to secure home court advantage for a first round matchup with the Grizzlies.
The Knicks come into this one well rested, at home, and with something to play for. We think this is a recipe for a win especially given how much the Clippers have struggled this season away from home. Give us the Knicks in this one all the way to the sportsbooks.
