New York Knicks vs. Indiana Pacers

Our Betting Pick for Today

Betting on the game!

Pacers +9With the Pacers out of the playoffs and the Knicks with a clinched spot, Indiana has little to play for in the role of spoiler. It remains to be seen what motivation the Pacers will have now that the postseason window has closed. New York will look to stay sharp and dialed in throughout the contest. Aside from external influences, New York should dominate on the glass and also rack up a fair amount of second chance points here. With the Knicks taking great care of the ball, little impact the transition offense of the Pacers. New York is 4-1 ATS in the last five against Indiana. With all that said, we don’t know the level of motivation for the Knicks with everything clinched either. Knicks win but 9 points is too much to give in this one. Take the Pacers and the points.

Over Under Knicks vs Pacers (228.5)
