The Knicks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Friday games and 6-21 ATS in their last 27 games following a ATS win. The Kings are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 15-4 ATS in their last 19 games overall. The under is 19-9-1 in Knicks last 29 overall. The under is 5-2 in Kings last 7 home games. The Knicks are 4-1-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Sacramento. The under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Sacramento and 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.

The Sacramento Kings are starting to win some games again and that means the offense is picking up, as they're averaging 108.6 points on 45.2 percent shooting in their last five games. The New York Knicks aren't good defensively, and that's an issue even more on the road where they're allowing 115 points on 47.1 percent shooting. Instead of touching the spread here and playing with a big number with a losing team, I'm going to side with the over. This is a fairly reasonable total for two teams that can be shaky at best defensively.
