Betting on the Warriors vs NY Knicks Hoops Spread

Posted by Henry Watkins on March 15, 2016 in

There are very few times in your lifetime when you get the opportunity to sit back and watch sports history in the making. I am talking specifically about records falling that you once believed would never be touched. Let’s be honest, how many people actually believed that the Chicago Bulls regular season record of 72-10, set back in 1995-96, would ever be taken down? While that record may still be left standing at the end of this season, it looks as though the Golden State Warriors are going to take a real run at it. The only thing that may end up halting that run is if they decide to start resting some key personnel in the last few games before the playoffs start. That said, you wonder of the chance to take that record will have them run the risk of some guys getting hurt or worn out. That is all talk for later, though, as the Warriors have to focus on the next game up, which is a visit by the New York Knicks on Wednesday night. The odds for this pro hoops match up be found at our NBA betting lines portal.

Why bet on the New York Knicks

The Knicks (28-40) are in the midst of a 6-game road trip that has seen them go 2-2 through the first 4 games. That is not so bad when you consider that the Knicks have only managed to go 12-22 away from home all season long. Things are probably not going to go as smoothly in this one, though, as they are heading into face a team that has not dropped a game at home all season long. New York does have a better win percentage against teams from the Western Conference than they do versus teams from the East, but they are still 4-games under .500 against non-conference opponents. The Knicks are averaging 99.1 PPG, and are giving up 101.4 PPG.

Why bet on the Golden State Warriors

The biggest question that you probably have coming into this game is in regards how many points Golden State (60-6) are going to win by. They haven’t lost at home yet this season, and the wager when they play at the Oracle Arena is deciding whether or not they will cover the spread. It is going to be interesting to see what it is set at for this one, as the Knicks are a team that have been like lambs to the slaughter against the Warriors. Going back the last 2 seasons, Golden State have beaten the Knicks 3-straight times, and have won by an average of 20-plus points. The Warriors are averaging 115.6 PPG, and are giving up 104.6 PPG.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

I don’t think I am making a very bold statement in saying that the Warriors are going to win this one, but I’m not so sure it will be by a huge margin. I’m taking them to win by 13, which is a little less than their recent winning margin average versus the Knicks.
