Knicks at Suns tips and predictions


Suns 119, Knicks 110

money line


The Suns should win mostly at home, but at -240 there’s no value in playing them to win outright. Even New York at +200 doesn’t have much value considering the Knicks are 4-5 going and taking on a top Western Conference opponent.

against the spread

BET SUN -6.5 (-110).

When Paul is out, G Cameron Payne has appropriately strengthened, so its absence should be less of a concern. Backing Phoenix is ​​easy considering it’s one of two teams with a top-8 offensive and defensive net rating.

The Suns will have the best player on the field and they will be at home too. Phoenix has a great 6-2 ATS at home this season and is 7-1 ahead at footprint center.

The Knicks are also in Game 4 of a 5-game road trip that will no doubt be tiring for a squad that relies heavily on their top 3 scoring options.

over under

BENT ABOVE 226.5 (-105).

The Knicks will likely get by without Robinson, who is their top rim protector. They’re 9th in pace, so they should be able to push the ball, and with Payne in place of Paul, the Suns tend to keep the pace up.

The Suns are also not a great defensive rebounding team, ranking 20th in defensive rebounding rate while the Knicks tumble the glass at a high rate and ranked 8th in offensive rebounding rate.

Expect New York to get plenty of second chances. Despite this, Phoenix has scored 130 or more points in 2 straight games and surpassed the predicted total in 3 straight games.
