The Philadelphia 76ers and New York Knicks meet Tuesday in NBA action at Madison Square Garden. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Philadelphia 76ers vs New York Knicks prediction.

Philadelphia 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers are starting to turn things around as they've split their last six games and they will be eager to build some momentum after outlasting the Knicks in a 79-73 road win over the Knicks on Sunday. Kelly Oubre Jr led the team with 18 points, 10 rebounds and three assists, Buddy Hield added 16 points, seven rebounds and three assists off the bench while Paul Reed chipped in with 13 points and four blocks. As a team, the 76ers shot just 38 percent from the field and nine of 30 from the 3-point line, but they played excellent defense to hold the Knicks to their lowest point total of the season to earn the gritty road win and snap a three-game slide.

New York Knicks

Meanwhile, the New York Knicks have been struggling as they've lost four of their last six games overall and they will be out for revenge after getting beaten by the 76ers in a close contest on Sunday. Jalen Brunson led the team with 19 points and eight assists, Donte DiVincenzo added 15 points with nine rebounds and three assists while Bojan Bogdanovic chipped in with 10 points off the bench. As a team, the Knicks shot just 32 percent from the field and nine of 40 from the 3-point line as they tried their best to hang within striking distance despite their poor shooting, until the fourth quarter where some costly turnovers allowed the 76ers to slip away. Brunson had a rough game as he shot just six of 22 from the field and one of nine from the 3-point line while Miles McBride finished scoreless on zero of five shooting off the bench. The Knicks will meet the Trail Blazers and Kings after this one.

Philadelphia 76ers vs New York Knicks prediction

The 76ers are still shorthanded with Joel Embiid and Robert Covington still out, while the Knicks are still without Julius Randle and OG Anunoby. The 76ers have been well below their best lately, but to their credit, they've been able to keep their heads above water and they would've taken plenty of confidence from their win on Sunday. Meanwhile, the Knicks have continued to struggle and just lost to the 76ers in a game where they scored their lowest point total in years. I'm sure we're going to see a response from the Knicks in this one, but I just don't think they should be favored by so many points in their current form.
