Seems like the NBA betting online public cannot get enough of the Golden State Warriors. Because of their status as NBA champions with superstar Stephen Curry they are hard to ignore. As a result, the Warriors often come at inflated prices with depleted board value. Conversely the New York Knicks have a different reality. With no respect as one of the worst franchises in sports they have no public appeal. What’s surprising is that they can occasionally offer a better than expected profit margin. Red ink has been gushing on Knicks games lately however.

Warriors vs. Knicks TV Coverage: NBA TV
Road games have not provided much in the way of NBA Betting Online value for Golden State. Most noteworthy is the Warriors mark of 13 payouts in 29 away games. Defense is a big culprit for the problem. Especially relevant is a ranking of 21st in the NBA for points allowed. In their last four road games Golden State has just one payout. Over the total has paid in four of their last six games. Stephen Curry is having another monster season with 27 points per game. Offensively the Warriors are the highest scoring team in the Association.
New York Knicks fans continue to wallow in misery. When Phil Jackson arrived in the spring of 2014 he was hailed as a Messiah. Jackson’s team presidency failed because the problem was above him. James Dolan’s ownership remains the cancer on what the NBA wishes were a marquee franchise. Astoundingly enough the Knicks last NBA title was in 1973.
As bad as the New York Knicks have been they have decent home betting value. On their home court they have paid out in 16 of 29 home games. Public perception may also bring the Knicks wagering value. Especially after seven spread losses in their last nine games. Few gamblers are going to want New York going up against the defending world champs. Hence the oddsmakers must sweeten the pot with enhanced value. As a result, a bad team like New York may transform into a good value.
Team vs. Team
Head to head in this series New York has been the superior Sportsbook value. In the last three meetings the Knicks have covered all three times. Under the total has paid in six out of the last eight between the Warriors and Knicks. Especially relevant is that New York has got the money in two of their last three home games with Golden State. And all three of those games went under the total.
Matchup to Watch
Matchup wise this is all about NBA Betting Online value. Contrarian players will give this one a good hard look. Public favor is totally with Golden State. Hence, enhanced betting value should be with New York. Additionally, the Warriors lax defense is likely to leave the back door open.
