The Knicks are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 Tuesday games and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The 76ers are 34-16-2 ATS in their last 52 home games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 4-0 in Knicks last 4 overall. The over is 5-1 in 76ers last 6 overall. The Knicks are 1-7 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Philadelphia and 5-12 ATS in the last 17 meetings.
The New York Knicks continue to get disrespected by oddsmakers for whatever reason, as this team competes and covers numbers at a decent rate. The Knicks lose in the underdog role by an average of 2.8 points and on the road by an average of two points. The Knicks just took the Nets down to the wire last night. The Philadelphia 76ers are still dealing with the loss of Embiid and they're 9-10-1 against the spread when a favorite of five or more points. As I've done a lot this season, give me the Knicks and the free points.
