The Knicks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Jazz are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games and 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 11-4 in Knicks last 15 overall. The over is 7-2 in Jazz last 9 Tuesday games. The Knicks are 12-3 ATS in the last 15 meetings in Utah and 25-6 ATS in the last 31 meetings.

The Utah Jazz are probably a team you shouldn't be looking to bet against, as they're one of the hotter teams in the league and have been covering numbers during this winning stretch. However, this line is showing no respect to a Knicks team that's overachieved, plays hard and has been kind to bettors as well. The Knicks lose by an average of 0.9 points as an underdog and are outscoring teams by eight points in their last five games overall. This line is too steep for me to back the Jazz. Give me the Knicks and the points.
