Score: 75 - 85
Point Spread: -4½/-115 New York
Indiana is by far one of the worst road teams left in the playoffs. The Pacers have a 21-24 straight up record on the road. They are scoring only 91 points per game away from home which is nowhere near the level they need to keep pace with this Knicks team scoring 101.5 points per game at home. The Knicks are playing to keep their postseason hopes alive and that should serve as plenty of motivation for today’s game. They are back on their home court which should give them an extra boost considering the last game played in New York was won in a blowout by the Knicks. New York has a 27-19 ATS record at home and a 34-12 straight up record. This matchup falls into a system to play on favorites of 3.5 to 9.5 points like New York when they are coming off a game scoring 85 points or less and they are a good offensive team scoring 98-102 points per game playing against a team averaging 92-98 points per game. This system is 35-15 (70%) ATS over the last five seasons.
