I'm going to keep betting against the Knicks until they prove me otherwise. They are 1-5 ATS in their last 6, and their only cover was when they came back from 19 down heading into the 4th to lose by 4 (spread was 4.5). The Knicks are an absolute mess and the players seem like they don't even care anymore. They are coming off being trounced at home by the Celtics, and now they face another team desparate for a win to help their playoff chances. AI is going to take control of this game and lead the 76ers to a comfortable victory.
I had a look at this bet as well for the reason you highlighted - Knicks have given up this season. If you watch their game against the celts the other night, you can see on the defensive end they were eimply not interested, countless times the cletic players just drove it into the lane and had an easy bucket
For that reason I reckon the overs in this one is a cracking bet, especially given the fact that 76ers don't play any defense either. Should be a track meet.
