NBA Betting Preview Knicks at Jazz

March 30, 2009

NBA Betting Preview - New York Knicks at Utah Jazz (Monday 9:00 ET)

By Matt Fargo

The Knicks are never a strong public play on the road and that is the case once again here as New York is being dogged by double-digits and the public is still favoring Utah on Monday.

The Knicks picked up a huge win on Friday over New Orleans at home and then as expected, had a big letdown next time out against the Bobcats in Charlotte.

They have now had a day off to regroup and despite a 1-7 record over its last eight games, New York is 4-4 ATS in those games.

On the road, the Knicks are 10-25 on the season but are a very respectable 21-13-1 ATS in those games.

Most surprising could be the fact that New York has a better record against the Western Conference than it does against the Eastern Conference as it has won 42.9 percent of its last against the west while winning 37.8 percent within its own conference.

The Knicks are 18-10 ATS in their 28 games against the Western Conference. New York has been a culprit this season of playing up and down to the competition as it is 23-10 ATS against teams with a winning record and just 17-20 ATS against teams with a losing record.

Utah has been nearly unbeatable at home and that is a main factor for this huge line. The Jazz are just 5-5 ATS this season as a double-digit chalk and they have not had a lot of success against the other conference, winning only 14 pf 29 games against the east while going 13-16 ATS in those games.

The real problem here is the spot the Jazz are in as they are coming off an overtime win over Phoenix in a revenge spot and have to travel to Portland tomorrow night in a huge game in the Northwest Division.

If there is ever a sandwich spot, this is it. The Knicks are 10-1 ATS over the last two seasons in road games when coming off a double-digit road loss.

They are also 15-5 ATS this season in road games when the total is greater than 210 and we have a number of 213 tonight.

The Knicks have covered eight straight in this series and they extend that tonight against a Utah team that will not be very interested to be on the floor.

Pick: New York Knicks +11 (-110) available at Bodoglife.com.
