The Pick: OVER 43.5 wins at odds of -130 (bet365)

The New York Knicks have a win total of 43.5 (bet365) at the All-Star break. This is a team that doesn’t benefit from the timing of the break as much as some other teams might. New York has a pretty clean injury report, however, Mitchell Robinson, their starting center, remains out. The Knicks could benefit from his return which is thought to be soon after the break.

New York Knicks win-total (bet365): 43.5 (simplified perspective)

  • Current winning rate: 55.0%
  • The winning rate needed for OVER 43.5: 53.66%
  • Difference: 1.34%
  • Simplified conclusion: the Knicks are ahead of their win-total projection

The Knicks are slightly ahead of their win-total target. They are more or less on pace to win 44-45 games. But what makes this team more convincing of a bet for the OVER is their recent form. Over roughly the last month and a half, the Knicks have gone 15-9 to get to where they are, six games above .500. That’s a pretty good winning rate for their last 24 games for a team with a win total of just 43.5.

New York Knicks: Recent Form Alert

  • Formerly: 18 – 18 on December 30th, 2022
  • Currently: 33 – 27 (overall)
  • Recent form: 15 – 9 since December 30th, 2022
  • Recent winning rate: 62.5%
  • New York Knicks’ recent form: 8.84% compared to what they need overall

The Knicks are a hungry franchise and there is some pressure from their fan base to succeed. Some have wondered if the Knicks are going to do anything to try and improve their roster after the break. New York seems to be just one player away from becoming a possible second-round team.

With 22 games remaining, they are in a good position. That’s a lower number of games than most other teams, meaning New York should have just a little more gap space between games to help with the minor injuries and fatigue management.

The Knicks only need to go 11-11 to beat their win total, a record that looks attainable in consideration of their 15-9 record since December 30th. Accordingly, our recommendation is to take the OVER with this decent team.

New York Knicks: Looking Ahead

  • Games remaining (regular season): 22
  • Minimum overall record needed for OVER to hit: 44 – 38
  • Summary: New York needs 11 wins in their remaining schedule to beat their win total
