The Kings are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 road games and 8-17 ATS in their last 25 games playing on 1 days rest. The Knicks are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 home games and 17-5-1 ATS in their last 23 games playing on 2 days rest. The under is 4-1 in Kings last 5 road games. The under is 9-4 in Knicks last 13 home games. The under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.
The Sacramento Kings aren't a team I'm running to the window to back under any circumstance, but laying big chalk with the Knicks makes even less sense. The New York Knicks have been hit or miss all season long, and right now they've lost six of their last seven games. The Knicks are losing their last five games by an average of 6.8 points, and they lose at home by an average of 0.7 points. I'm not laying chalk with the Knicks. Give me the Kings and the buckets if forced to pick.
