The New York Knicks are showing signs of life as of late, and they should be up for this game at home, so there's some appeal with the free points. However, I need to see more from the Knicks before I can start backing them in spots like this against good teams. The Utah Jazz are far and away the better, more consistent team, and they win in the favorite role by an average of eight points. This is a statement game for the Knicks, a team that's 14-20 against the spread at home. Give me the Jazz.
