The New York Knicks play host to the Oklahoma City Thunder at Madison Square Garden on Monday night.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have been in a major slump as they’ve lost 12 of their past 15 games overall and they will be hoping to snap a five-game slide after falling just short to the Bulls in a 106-101 road loss on Saturday. Luguentz Dort led the team with 31 points, Darius Bazley added 17 points with eight rebounds and five assists while Josh Giddey tallied a triple-double of 11 points with 12 rebounds and 10 assists. As a team, the Thunder shot just 38 percent from the field and 11 of 36 from the 3-point line as they held the Bulls to just 22 points in the first quarter to lead for most of the game until the fourth quarter where the Bulls went on a pivotal 8-0 run to pull away and steal the game late.
Meanwhile, the New York Knicks have been in a slump of their own as they’ve lost 11 of their past 14 games overall and they will be looking to bounce back after getting stopped by the Trail Blazers in a 112-103 road loss on Saturday. Julius Randle led the team with 28 points, 16 rebounds and six assists, Kemba Walker added 23 points while Quentin Grimes chipped in with 20 points. As a team, the Knicks shot just 38 percent from the field and 15 of 40 from the 3-point line as they got off to a nice start and dominated most of the game to lead by as many as 23 points, before going ice-cold in the fourth quarter where they managed just 11 points to allow the Trail Blazers to run them down.
Looking at the betting trends, the Thunder are 19-7 ATS in their last 26 road games, 18-7 ATS in their last 25 games against a team with a losing record and 34-16-3 ATS in their last 53 games overall. The Knicks are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games following a loss, 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last six games overall.
Head to head, the over is 5-2 in the last seven meetings overall, the Thunder are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in New York and the Thunder are 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings overall.
The Thunder haven’t been able to get anything going lately and their confidence took another hit after coming up painfully short to the shorthanded Bulls on Saturday. The Knicks will be relieved to be back at home after going 1-4 in their five-game road trip and they are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games, so I'm backing the Knicks to get the job done.
