Knicks in Miserable Slump SU and ATS

Langston Galloway New York Knicks NBA

The New York Knicks went into the All-Star break on horrible losing streak and that did not change as the team’s worst spell of the season continued with a loss at the Brooklyn Nets in their first game back Friday night.

Shark Bites
  • The Knicks are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games versus the Timberwolves.
  • The Knicks are 1-5 ATS in their last six road games.
  • UNDER is 4-0 in the Knicks' last four games versus the Western Conference.

The Knicks will try to snap a seven-game SU and ATS losing skid when they visit the Minnesota Timberwolves Saturday night. Online shop Bovada currently has the Timberwolves tabbed as 2-point home favorites for the contest.

The Knicks did defeat the Wolves 107-102 at MSG on December 16 but the team will have to overcome a sloppy, 16-turnover performance in Friday's loss to the lowly Nets.

The Timberwolves entered the break on a bit of a hot streak as they won three of their final four games, including a 117-112 victory against the Toronto Raptors. The young Wolves weren’t as lucky in their first game back from the break as they found themselves on the wrong end of a 109-104 scoreline at the Memphis Grizzlies Friday night.

Bettors have enjoyed the Wolves on their home floor recently, however, as the club has gone 6-1 ATS (4-3 SU) in their previous seven home games.

The postseason is basically a pipe dream at this stage for the Knicks, but there is a small chance for playoff basketball in Madison Square Garden if the team turns things around ASAP.
