NBA Picks: Golden State Warriors vs. New York Knicks

0 of 3

    The New York Knicks (33-20) have lost 15 of their last 19 games against the Golden State Warriors (33-24), which is important to consider when making your NBA picks on Wednesday night, as the two teams meet at Madison Square Garden at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN.

    Sports bettors will find that the Knicks are seven-point home favorites in the pro basketball odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total sits at 207 in the market.

    Let's take a closer look at this non-conference affair from a betting perspective, while offering up a prediction on the total along the way. 

Golden State Warriors

1 of 3

    The Golden State Warriors have lost six of their last seven road games, including a 108-97 decision to the Indiana Pacers as 8.5-point underdogs on Tuesday night.

    Sports bettors will notice that the Warriors are 4-5 against the spread as road underdogs of 6.5 to nine points this season, while the UNDER is 6-3 in that situation.

New York Knicks

2 of 3

    The New York Knicks snapped a four-game losing streak last time out, picking up a 99-93 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers as 11-point home favorites.

    Over the last two-plus seasons, the Knicks have gone 10-16-1 against the spread as home favorites of 6.5 to nine points, while the UNDER is 15-12 in that situation. 

Prediction

3 of 3

    I'm going to recommend that readers play the total as one of their sports betting picks on Wednesday night, as the UNDER is 5-1 in the New York Knicks' last six home games.
