The Knicks are 11-1 ATS on the 1st half line since February 1stafter they blew out the Kings last night and were up 17 at halftime. They’ve led by an average of 7.4 ppg in these 10 games. They have 2 games this weekend – home Saturday vs Indiana and on the road Sunday at Detroit. If you haven’t been watching this team this is by far the most exciting Knicks team in 10 years and Derrick Rose has been a great add to this team after a lot of people questioned the move.
The Kings are on a brutal 0-9 SU and ATS skid. Luke Walton might get fired soon and the state of the Kings can be summed up by Walton smashing his clipboard with a hammer fist during a timeout last night. They play the Hornets on Sunday and that offense should roll on them.
The Nets are on an 8 game winning streak and covered all 8 games during this. On top of this they’re 7-1 ATS on the first half line in these games and they were up by double digits in 4 of those games. They play at home tomorrow vs the Mavs who got blown out by the Sixers last night as 5 point dogs and have been overvalued all season and went on a winning streak recently vs a bunch of teams who are struggling so Dallas might still not be properly priced the next few games.
The Suns are coming off a loss to the Hornets and are -6 tonight at Chicago. Phoenix hasn’t been great as a road favorite but they’re 9-5 ATS on the road overall and covered their last 2 games as a road favorite. They’re also 7-3 ATS off a loss.
The Rockets are on a 1-8 ATS skid and play the Raptors tonight on the road. This team’s littered with problems with Christian Wood still out, Demarcus Cousins heading out, and John Wall and Oladipo not playing back to backs in a schedule that’s filled with them. The Raptors are 4-1 ATS in the 1st quarter their last 5 and the Rockets have started a lot of games slow. The only weird thing with the Raptors is Kyle Lowry is likely on his way out and he’s back in the lineup now after the Raptors went on a winning streak without him.
