Golden State Warriors vs New York Knicks betting tips and predictions for Tuesday’s NBA on TNT game. After failing to make history in his last 2 games, Stephen Curry looks to break the all-time 3-point record tonight at Madison Square Garden as the Warriors take on the Knicks. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.
Golden State Warriors
Golden State is yet to lose in consecutive games this season and they made sure that didn’t happen last night against the Pacers. The Warriors bounced back after a rare loss at Philadelphia with a 2-point win at Indy for their 8th road win in 11 games this season. Stephen Curry had 26 points on the night and scored 5 more three-pointers to pull within just 3 made shots of breaking the all-time record held by Ray Allen. Madison Square Garden is the perfect place for this to happen, as there is a history between the Knicks and Curry. Golden State heads into this one as 3.5 point favorites, they’ve had their issues covering the spread lately by doing so just once in the last 5 games. However, they’ve been really successful against the Knicks lately beating them 11 times in 13 games and covering the spread 4 times in the last 6 meetings.
New York Knicks
The Knicks come into this game on a 7 game home losing streak vs the Warriors. They find themselves bottom of the Atlantic Division with just 12 wins in 27 games this season. After their loss on Sunday against the Bucks at home, they’ve now dropped 3 in a row and have failed to crack the 100 point mark 3 times in their last 5 games. This team simply isn’t on the level of last season’s and to make matters worse their shooting guard RJ Barrett has been put in the health and safety protocols, so they will be without his services for an extended period of time. Star player Julius Randle is really struggling, in his last 2 games he has scored just 8 and 13 points which is bad news ahead of tonight’s game as he faces an all-defensive defender in Draymond Green.
All eyes will be on Steph Curry tonight as he breaks the 3-point record, but his team will be more focused on winning this game as they have to continue winning to keep the pressure on Phoenix for the number 1 seed in the West. They’ve owned the Knicks lately and New York is just in a bad spot right now. Warriors to cover.
New York Knicks – Golden State Warriors Predictions & Odds
Golden State -3.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds on bet365
New York struggling to score is nothing new, right now they are the worst team over the last 3 games scoring wise averaging just 95.3 games over that stretch. Golden State hasn’t scored as much as they would have wanted to over their current road trip, they are also at just 99.7 points, however at least their defense has been solid and they are still winning games because of that. I expect both teams to pick it up here, after all this is a nationally televised game and they will want to show up. In their last 10 meetings they’ve combined for an average of 222.1 points per game and in the last 3 meetings the over has cashed twice. For the Knicks the over has cashed 5 times in the last 7 games, mainly because they aren’t able to stop teams from scoring. They are allowing 110.2 points per game at home this season, 6th worst in the NBA. The over has cashed 5 times in the last 7 between these two and I expect another high scoring game tonight. Back the over.
