NBA Betting New York Knicks at Philadelphia

November 30, 2010 NBA Basketball

NBA betting on Wednesday includes a game in Philadelphia as the 76ers host the New York Knicks.

It is the last game of a three-game road trip for the Knicks. The two teams have been scoring a lot of points in this basketball betting series recently so this game could be high scoring.

NBA betting saw Philadelphia outscore the Knicks earlier this season in New York by a score of 141-127 in overtime.  Both teams have scored 100 points or more in each of the past three games. Philadelphia has won six straight in the series and that is the longest streak in almost 25 years.  In the last five games against New York, the Sixers are averaging 117.6 points on 54.7% shooting. In the basketball betting game earlier this season, the 76ers led by as many as 23 points in the third quarter but the Knicks rallied to send the game into overtime.

Philadelphia has won nine of the last ten outright against New York and they are 8-2 against the NBA betting odds.  At home, the Sixers won both games last year against New York but they were just 1-1 against the basketball betting pointspread.  Even though the teams have scored a lot of points recently, the over/under in NBA betting is just 3-3 in the last six games.

This season the Knicks actually have the better record than the 76ers.  New York is around the .500 mark on the road in NBA betting this season so they have a real chance to end Philly’s winning streak in this series.  The Knicks are right at the Top 10 in the league in scoring and their defense this NBA betting season still isn’t very good but its better.  They are 22nd in the league and that is at least better than being last.  The Knicks have a lot of young talent and it is starting to show this basketball betting season.

Philadelphia is not a very good team this season but in NBA betting it is all about covering the spread.  On the road the 76ers can be very competitive and they have a solid record against the NBA betting odds. At home though, they are an official disaster in NBA betting.  The 76ers have been so bad at home against the NBA betting that is almost hard to believe. It is one of the worst home records ever at this point in an NBA betting season.  It makes taking New York almost a must until the Sixers show something on their home court.
