The New York Knicks aren't a team I'm thrilled to back, especially on the end of a back to back, but they've had loads of covering success in these spots. The Denver Nuggets also have had countless bizarre results this season, and they don't comfortably win games they're supposed to. Denver is a tough spot to play on the end of a back to back, but the trends give the Knicks a fighting chance here. Give me the points if forced to pick.
