New York Knicks Betting - In a New York Minute

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 2/11/2014 1:22:31 AM

As Don Henley and company told the world: ‘In a New York Minute, everything can change, things can get pretty strange, the wolf is always at the door’ and nobody knows better about this concept than the players and sport betting fans of the New York Knicks.

With the season winding down, it’s time for online sports enthusiasts to pay attention to contenders and the pretenders and whom they will be facing in the final weeks of the regular season.

This has been an extremely strange year for New York. Expectations were high with Amar’e Stoudemire returning after a back injury and with the concept that the team, including Carmelo Anthony, would mesh better after playing together for part of last season but it’s been an out-right disaster.

Stoudemire recently re-injured his back, Anthony had to take some time off with a groin injury after scoring 28 and the Miracle One, Jeremy Lin, has a sore knee.

The words consistency and Knicks should not be uttered in the same room. The lost 4 of their first 6 of the year, put together a little win streak, then promptly lost 11 in a 13-game stretch. Coach D’Antoni’s job was on the line and from out of nowhere, he decided to play a little known guy from Harvard.

Things got interesting quickly. Jeremy Lin was inserted late in a game against New Jersey on February 4 and he scored 25, had 7 assists and 5 rebounds in 35 minutes.

He came back 2 nights later and popped for 28 as a starter, chimed in with a double/double after that and than had to meet Kobe in Madison Square Garden.

All Lin did against Kobe was outscore him by 4 with 38 in the hole as New York prevailed by 7.

After winning 4 of their next 5, Linsanity had not only captured the sports world, but even President Obama made a reference to him.

Then the tide turned as the Knicks lost 6 in a row, D’Antoni was out and Mike Woodson was named the interim coach.

As far as betting on New York goes, so far it’s been a wash as they are 25-25 against the online betting spread after 50 but there is some light at the end of the tunnel.

They have been misplayed going under/over as they have been under 18 of the 50 and under 7 of 24 on the road.

Starting Wednesday, it doesn’t seem to get any better for the Boys from Gotham City as they have to play in Orlando.

With another game against the Magic on the horizon, back-to-back contests with the Chicago Bulls, and back-to-backs with Miami and Boston, it will not be an easy road for the Knicks to thrive in the late stages of the season.

At the time of the writing, New York was tenuously holding on to the 8th playoff spot and they would have to hold off the Milwaukee Bucks to sneak into the playoffs.

Even on the best of betting websites notes, if New York does hold on to a playoff spot, they won’t be around for long.
