Knicks vs Nuggets Over/Under Pick: Under 207½

The Knicks love playing low-scoring games, and we’re happy to take the under with sport betting markets.

They have been winning with low totals over the last few weeks, including 98-91 over the Sacramento Kings and a 79-73 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.

There’s nothing wrong with their offense, but they like to take time with the shot clock, and that plays into the hands of the under.

Denver is also happy to engage in a defensive battle, so our NBA picks have the under cashing.



Knicks vs Nuggets ATS Pick: Knicks +9½

Our NBA best bet is the Knicks +8½ because they have been playing some of the best basketball in the NBA recently, riding a three-game win streak – all on the road.

It was hard not to be impressed with their win over the Warriors, when they were 6½ betting online underdogs. They are dogs again, and they’re being slept on.

We’re not discrediting the talent of the Nuggets, who are 27-6 overall at home. However, in their first meeting against the Knicks, they lost 122-84.

It was one of their worst offensive performances in recent history, and the suffocating Knicks defense could be too much for them.



Knicks vs Nuggets Player Prop Pick: Jalen Brunson Over 27½ Points (-186)

Jalen Brunson is always worth including with NBA prop bet picks.

The point guard has the ball on a string, and he’s averaging 27.6 points per game, so he only needs to hit his average.


Brunson has been lighting up the stat sheet, scoring 45 points against Portland, 42 against Sacramento and 34 against Golden State.

That’s an impressive showing, and we fancy his chances of being the games’ top scorer on Thursday.
