The New York Knicks play host to the Indiana Pacers at Madison Square Garden on Sunday afternoon.

The Indiana Pacers have been in a slump as they’ve lost seven of their last eight games overall and they will be hoping to avoid a fourth straight defeat after getting beaten by the Pistons in a 122-115 loss on Friday. Buddy Hield led the team with 22 points on seven of 14 shooting off the bench, Bennedict Mathurin added 16 points while Isaiah Jackson chipped in with 15 points on seven of 10 shooting. As a team, the Pacers shot 49 percent from the field and 11 of 31 from the 3-point line as they struggled to match the Pistons from the start and were always fighting an uphill battle after they allowed 73 points in the first half to fall behind by 21 points at one stage.

Meanwhile, the New York Knicks were playing some good basketball as they were riding a five-game win streak before they got stopped in their tracks by the Pelicans in a 113-105 road loss on Friday. RJ Barrett led the way with 28 points, seven rebounds and six assists, Immanuel Quickley added 24 points while Quentin Grimes chipped in with 14 points. As a team, the Knicks shot 43 percent from the field and 14 of 43 from the 3-point line as they went back and forth with the Pelicans in a close contest until they went cold and scored just five points in the final 5:09 to allow the Pelicans to slip away in the end.

Looking at the betting trends, the Pacers are 1-5 ATS in their last six games following a loss and 2-6 ATS in their last eight games overall. The Knicks are 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 home games and 4-1-1 ATS in their last six games overall.

Head to head, the Pacers are 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings in New York and the Pacers are 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings overall.

The Knicks will again be missing their two best players in Julius Randle and Jalen Brunson, while the Pacers are missing Tyrese Haliburton and they are keeping eyes on TJ McConnell and Isaiah Jackson who are both questionable. The Knicks have played some good basketball to keep winning games despite the injuries, and I think that trend continues here as the Pacers are only 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings overall. The Knicks are 8-3-1 ATS in the last 12 home games and I think they get it done here.
