561 Knicks (+13) over Lakers
Since firing David Fizdale the Knicks have been more competitive and been very good ATS covering 6 of their last 10 games. Their last game against championship contenders LA Clippers they had a 16 point lead and only lost by 3. They have a solid mix of young and veteran players that are playing well together and a couple contending teams may be trying to inquire some of the veteran players from the Knicks around the trade deadline. The Lakers have been winning but they’ve been performing below expectations ATS over the last week or so vs teams under .500 and this could be a spot they can be caught overlooking the Knicks and looking ahead to the matchup with the Mavs. Over the last 3 years the Knicks are 4-2 SU and ATS vs the Lakers. Knicks are 4-1 ATS last 5 in LA, 5-2 ATS last 7 matchups and 4-1 ATS last 5 games overall. The Lakers are 0-5-1 ATS last 6 playing on 1 day of rest and 1-5-1 ATS last 7 after a ATS loss and after a SU win.
