The New York Knicks take on the Orlando Magic as the NBA action continues this weekend.
The Knicks are firmly planted at the bottom of the Eastern Conference and it’s unlikely that they’ll move from that position. The good news for the New York side is that they recently snapped an incredible 16 game losing by beating the Pelicans 99-92 on Tuesday. They followed that victory up with a 98-91 win on the road against the 76ers. It looks like they have found some form recently and may be putting together a winning streak.
The Magic have also had a poor season and find themselves only 2 positions above the Knicks in the table. They’ve lost 8 of their last 10 games and have 3 road wins in their last 10 away games. Their biggest concern is their offense that is giving up over 100+ points per game over their last 5 matches. To be fair they did face some the league’s best offensive team over that stretch which may distort the statistics somewhat. They will however need to turn things around if they are to get a result in New York.
New York Knicks 21/20, Orlando Magic 8/10.
New York Knicks +2.5 8/10, Orlando Magic -2.5 17/20.
Over / Under 206.5 8/10.
The Knicks seem to have something going for them at the moment while the Magic are on a bit of a slide. Seeing that the Knicks are the underdog at home and are on a 2 game winning streak I’m inclined to take the +2.5 or even the straight victory. Back the Knicks to pick up their 3rd straight win.
