How To Bet On Knicks Celtics – Knicks Get Big Divisional Win in Boston

New York Knicks @ Boston Celtics – Thursday January 24, 2013 8:00PM EST

The online betting world thinks that it has discovered the secret to the New York Knicks’ excellent first half of the season run. That secret is Carmelo Anthony. It is really not that hard to figure out when you take the time to look at the facts. When Anthony is out of the lineup, the Knicks have problems scoring points and winning games. When Anthony is healthy and playing, the Knicks seem unstoppable. To this point, Amar’e Stoudemire has been able to accept his role as a bench player. As long as things do not change for the Knicks, there is no reason to expect New York to stop its winning ways.

The Boston Celtics look like a team that has pushed the envelope one year too far. The sports betting experts were wondering if Boston would be able to re-create its unexpected success of a season ago and, so far, Boston has not been able to keep up a winning pace. The Celtics is trailing the Knicks in the Atlantic Division standings by six games. That makes each and every game between these two teams extremely important. This particular game comes at a time when Boston is ill-prepared to host the red hot New York Knicks.

Why the Celtics Will Win

If there is one thing the online casino players can say about the Boston Celtics, it is that the team is definitely strong at home. Boston has a 13-8 home record and tends to play more aggressive defense on its own court. That kind of defense is exactly what Boston will need to slow down Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks. The only question is whether or not Boston can keep up an aggressive defensive game plan on New York for an entire game.

Why the Knicks Will Win

It would be simplistic to say that the Knicks will win this game because Carmelo Anthony is playing. There is an emotion attached to this game that started with all of the events that took place the last time these two teams go together. The police had to be called to separate Boston’s Kevin Garnett and Anthony after the game. The Knicks started recording the opposing team’s bench to see if anyone was planning on getting Anthony riled up during the course of the game. New York has something to prove and it wants to make its point in Boston’s building.

The Bottom Line

The Boston Celtics need to start stringing together some wins if it wants to start a serious playoff run after the All-Star break. For now, Boston will have to deal with the emotion it started the last time that these two teams got together and some very strong words were exchanged. It is never a good idea to inspire an already inspired player like Carmelo Anthony.

Pick: New York Knicks
