Basketball Betting – New York Knicks vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

Basketball betting on Tuesday has the New York Knicks visiting Oklahoma City to play the Thunder.

Bet on basketball scheduling information tells us that it is the first game of a four-game road trip for the Knicks while it is the first of a back-to-back for the Thunder as they are at Minnesota tomorrow.

Basketball betting trends have the teams splitting their last 10 meetings straight up.  The Knicks are 6-4 against the basketball odds in those games. The teams have not met in Oklahoma City since the Thunder moved from Seattle. They did meet in New York earlier this season and the Knicks outscored the Thunder 116-106 as basketball betting results indicate.  New York covered the 8 point basketball betting pointspread and the game went over the total of 208.5. 

Gamblers that bet on basketball see that the Knicks are a much different team than when they played the Thunder in that meeting since Zach Randolph is now with Golden State.  Al Harrington is the man for New York now who leads the team in scoring as basketball betting numbers indicates.  Kevin Durant led the Thunder in scoring in that matchup and he has led the team in scoring this season as basketball betting statistics show.

Although the Thunder has a rotten record straight up, they have a winning record against the basketball odds.  The team has some young talent led by Durant that can sometimes impact the basketball betting line.

New York is really playing for next year or for 2010 but they can still be competitive versus the basketball betting line.  Harrington can score on a regular basis and David Lee can pull down the rebounds as basketball betting stats indicate.

Oklahoma City has had trouble scoring which is the only reason this game might go under the bet on basketball total.  Most of the other basketball betting trends point to an over.  The Thunder plays no defense and the Knicks are no better as bet on basketball stats indicate.
