The Knicks host the Wizards while New York looks to get closer to the second seed in the Eastern Conference. Get NBA odds at Bovada sportsbook.
Washington (29-48) have been better lately than earlier in the season. Washington is .500 in their last 10 games and have been much better now that John Wall is back from injury. With that said, the Wizards are still 7-31 on the road, one of the worst road records in the whole NBA. The Suns also have just seven road wins while the Bobcats have just six. Despite this tough season and being almost 20 games below .500, the Wizards are still tied for tenth in the Eastern Conference, a record better than four other teams.
The Knicks (50-26) have now hit 50 wins this season after their home win against the Oklahoma City Thunder. New York trails the East-leading Heat by 10 games but now lead the Indiana Pacers by two and a half games and will play the Boston Celtics in an intriguing first round matchup if the season ended right now. New York have now won 12 games in a row and Carmelo is on an absolute tear. He has scored at least 36 points in all of his last four games including two games of 40 or more and one of 50.
The Wizards are 44-31-2 against the spread this season and the Knicks are 42-32-2 ATS and 22-16 ATS at home.
I like the Knicks in this game, without a doubt. They are so much better than the Wizards and Washington has been awful on the road. Anthony and the rest of his squad are playing on a tremendous level right now and I think playing the Wizards will help that notion. But Washington is good defensively and will cover this inflated spread so first read about sportsbook promotion codes.
