Basketball betting on both teams has been solid lately and Orlando has been one of the better NBA betting values all season long. The New York Knicks, thanks to playing in the weak eastern conference, have a legitimate shot at the basketball betting post season despite a rather poor record.
New York had an overall NBA betting mark of 27-37 straight up but was a profitable 36-27-1 against the NBA betting lines. The Knicks were a solid basketball betting road team with a record of 18-12-1 against the spread. New York was also a solid basketball betting pup with a mark of 27-18-1 against the board when getting points.
From February 28 through March 11 the Knicks went on a basketball betting stretch in which they lost just 1 out of 6 games against the spread. The Knicks basketball betting strength was their 4th ranked offense while their defense ranked 28th overall in the league.
In their last meeting with Orlando on February 25 from Madison Square Garden in New York the Knicks lost 109-114 and failed to cover as 3-point dogs as the game went over the total of 218.5. The Orlando Magic are in firm 3rd place standing in the eastern conference race towards the basketball betting post season.
Orlando had an overall NBA betting mark of 47-17 straight up and 40-23-1 against the NBA betting lines. Orlando was 19-13 against the spread in basketball betting home action and was 29-21-1 as a basketball betting chalk.
The Magic have been a fairly consistent “under” team in home basketball betting action with a mark of 13-19 under the total. Orlando has been strong on both sides of the court as they ranked 8th overall on offense while ranking 7th overall on defense.
Dwight Howard has been having a monster year for the Magic and led the team in scoring with an average of 20.9 points per game while being the ultimate “Windex” man on the boards with an average of 14 rebounds per game!
