New York Knicks

The Knicks are 10-31 overall and 18-21-2 ATS.   The New York Knicks remain one of the worst teams in the NBA again this season and are virtually eliminated from the playoffs at the midpoint of the season. They are currently in 14th place in the Eastern Conference and trail the Charlotte Hornets by 9.5 games for the 8th spot in the conference. New York is 18-21-2 ATS overall, 11-18-1 ATS after a loss, 6-9-1 ATS at home and 15-16-2 ATS as an underdog.

Indiana Pacers

The Pacers are 27-14 overall and 20-20-1 ATS.   The Indiana Pacers are coming off a blowout loss on the road against the Boston Celtics, but are still one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference. They are currently in 3rd place in the Easter Conference and trail the Milwaukee Bucks by 3 games for the top spot in the conference. Indiana is 20-20-1 ATS overall, 7-5-1 ATS after a loss, 10-11-1 ATS on the road and 12-13-1 ATS as a favorite.

Bojan Bogdanovic leads the team in scoring with 665 points. Darren Collison leads the team in assists with 225. Domantas Sabonis leads the team in rebounds with 373. Thaddeus Young leads the team in steals with 64. Myles Turner leads the team in blocks with 103.

Indiana gets the win and cover on the road

These are two teams headed in opposite directions as Indiana will be a playoff team and could make a deep run in the conference while New York may finish with the worst record in the NBA. New York is 11-18-1 ATS after a loss while Indiana is 7-5-1 ATS after a loss. I look for both of these trends to continue with a Pacers win and cover against the Knicks on Friday.
