Knicks are on an Ugly ATS Skid

Kristaps Porzingis

You'll have to forgive even the most passionate Denver Nuggets fans if their mind is on something else ahead of the Broncos' Super Bowl 50 Sunday matchup with the Carolina Panthers. Regardless, the Nuggets will take their talents to New York and tangle with a floundering Knicks team that's looked more like a pretender than a contender as of late.

Shark Bites
  • The Nuggets are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. the Eastern Conference.
  • The Knicks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 day of rest.
  • The home team is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings between the Knicks and Nuggets.

The Nuggets have flown under the radar this season as one of the best bets in the NBA at 28-21-2 ATS. Denver picked up its third win in four games thanks to a 115-110 home triumph over the Chicago Bulls on Friday, while the Knickerbockers have dropped four straight SU and ATS to sink farther in the Eastern Conference standings.

Totals bettors, take note: the UNDER is trending heading into this one. New York has gone UNDER the closing total in five of its last six, and the UNDER is a perfect 4-0 in the last four meetings between these clubs.
