NBA Picks: Washington Wizards vs. New York Knicks

1 of 4

    The New York Knicks have won nine home games in a row against the Washington Wizards, which is important to consider when making your NBA picks Tuesday night for their meeting at Madison Square Garden.

    Sports bettors will find that the Knicks are 10.5-point home favorites in the pro basketball odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total sits at 194 in the market.

    Let's take a closer look at this Eastern Conference matchup from a betting perspective, while offering up a prediction on the total along the way.

Washington Wizards

2 of 4

    The Washington Wizards have alternated wins and losses over their last four games and they look to bounce back from a 107-96 defeat to the Boston Celtics as 5.5-point road underdogs Sunday.

    Sports bettors will find that the Wizards are 6-0 against the spread as road underdogs of 9.5 to 12 points during the 2012-13 NBA season.

New York Knicks

3 of 4

    The New York Knicks have won 12 games in a row, including a 125-120 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder as 7.5-point road underdogs Sunday.

    Over the last two-plus seasons, the Knicks are 25-14-1 against the spread when playing off an upset win as an underdog.

Prediction

4 of 4

    I'm going to recommend that readers play the total as one of their NBA picks Tuesday night, as the OVER is 6-2 in the New York Knicks' eight games as home favorites of 9.5 to 12 points this season.

    NBA Pick: Over 194
