New York has dropped three of its last four games, including a 112-88 defeat to the Phoenix Suns as six-point road underdogs Friday, while going UNDER the betting total for the first time in four contests. The Knicks are 9-15 SU on the road this season, including a 5-8 mark versus Western Conference opponents, which is important to consider when making your NBA predictions. Offensively, the team is led by forward Carmelo Anthony, who is averaging 28.2 points per game. New York is 2-9 ATS in its last 11 Sunday games.
The Knicks haven’t won a season series against the Warriors since the 2000-01 campaign, which can’t be ignored when looking over the NBA betting lines, considering they dropped a 123-103 decision in the first meeting on Feb. 28. Anthony led the way with 23 points and 16 rebounds over 37 minutes of action, but New York allowed Golden State’s starting backcourt to score 52 points.
Golden State has won four of its last five affairs, including a 100-93 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies as two-point home favorites Friday, while going OVER the betting total of 185.5. The Warriors have four of five probable starters averaging double figures, with point guard Stephen Curry leading the way—scoring 23.5 points a contest. He leads the league in three-pointers made, while ranking fifth in assists and seventh in scoring. Golden State is 9-4-1 ATS in its last 14 games versus Eastern Conference foes.
The Warriors are 24-12 SU at Oracle Arena, including a 9-5 mark versus non-conference opponents. Golden State has won 10 of its last 11 home games in this series, while also capturing 17 of the last 22 overall. Curry, Andre Iguodala and David Lee currently rank in the top five in plus/minus per game this season, including a league-leading mark for Iguodala.
Sports bettors will likely play the total, as the OVER is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings in this series.
