Predictions For Knicks Pistons Betting – Knicks Look To Build On Only Winning Road Record Among Top Four Teams In East Thursday

Posted by Craig Parsons on 1/15/2013 6:26:54 PM

The New York Knicks are still in the hunt for the top seed in the Eastern Conference thanks in part to being the only top-four team with a winning record on the road. Next up for the Knicks is a trip to Auburn Hills to face the Detroit Pistons, another team on the outside looking in this sports betting season. The Knicks have won 10 of 18 games on the road heading in to Thursday’s game, and will look to build on that win percentage with three of their next four games on the road against conference opponents.

NBA Sportsbook Line: New York – 4.5

Despite sitting at 14-24 overall, the Detroit is actually a .500 team at home this season where they have remained competitive. The Pistons were no match for the Knicks when they played at New York in a 121-100 loss, but should play better this time around on their home court.

That win back in November was the Knicks’ fifth-straight at home to open the season, with Carmelo Anthony scoring a game-high 29 points, including 15 in the first quarter. Anthony will look to start fast again in this contest, along with Steve Novak and JR Smith, who each scored 15 in the first meeting. New York still ranks in the top-10 in scoring despite their inconsistent play at times, and would certainly benefit from doing a better job on the boards if they can after averaging just 40.5 rebounds per game, which ranks them 27th in the NBA this season.

Even though Brandon Knight scored a team-high 21 points and Charlie Villanueva chipped in with 17 off the bench, the Pistons trailed the Knicks by 20 points at the half in their first meeting and never really looked like they had a legitimate chance. They should be a lot better this time around at home, and with a group that ranks eighth in the NBA in rebounding and should have the advantage in that department over New York. Greg Monroe has led Detroit in both points and rebounds with 15.5 and 9.2 respectively, while the Pistons as a team rank ninth in the NBA in points allowed.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The first meeting between these teams was a long time ago, and while Detroit may not win this game they should be able to at least keep it close and have a shot at covering the online betting number. The Knicks as a team haven’t looked as good overall these past couple of weeks despite maintaining a winning record on the road, and with a couple of games at Boston and Philadelphia coming up they could get caught looking ahead.
