Knicks vs Rockets ATS Pick: Knicks -4
Although the Knicks haven’t been the strongest lately, they have won all three of their last games on the road, and they have a good chance to prevail against Houston.
The Rockets haven’t been strong lately, averaging 109 points in their last four games, and they’re likely to struggle against New York as well. The Knicks are the third-best defense in the league, keeping teams to 109.9 points a game, and in their last three road games, they have limited teams to 96.3 points.
Houston’s defense has also taken a hit recently, giving up 118 points a game in its last four, and with Jalen Brunson averaging 35.5 in his last four, he should help propel New York’s offense yet again. With the Rockets’ leading scorer Alperen Sengun questionable as well, the Knicks should be able to cover the smaller spread.
Knicks vs Rockets Player Prop: Jalen Brunson Over 30.5 Points (-120)
As previously mentioned, Houston’s defense hasn’t been stellar during its recent losing skid. Brunson, meanwhile, has been going off, averaging 35.5 points a game in the month of February. In five of his last seven games, Brunson has scored over the 30.5-point mark, averaging 33.6 points in that time.
Brunson has also been just as strong on the road, averaging 27.3 points away from home compared to 27.6 at home. In his first game against Houston, he managed 30 points, and with the Knicks looking to him to lead them to victory yet again, he should have another big game.
