The Knicks are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 road games and 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Suns are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 18-6 ATS in their last 24 Friday games. The over is 5-0 in Knicks last 5 overall. The over is 7-3 in Suns last 10 overall. The Knicks are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Phoenix and 4-16-1 ATS in the last 21 meetings.
The New York Knicks have completely fallen apart over these last couple of weeks, both SU and ATS, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 11 points while shooting 42.6 percent from the field. I can't get behind the Knicks, especially on the road against some of the better teams in the league. The Phoenix Suns win at home by an average of 8.8 points, and they win in the favorite role by an average of 9.6 points. This line feels soft. Give me the Suns all day.
