Why the Knicks can cover
The Knicks have covered in four consecutive games. New York has won by double digits in three consecutive competitions despite appearing in every game as an underdog.
The Grizzlies have gone 4-3 straight and 4-3 ATS in their last seven games. Despite having covered all of their home games since the All-Star break, New York has won and covered four straight road games. The Knicks have rallied for the second half of the year and Kemba Walker’s bench seems to have helped them improve as scorers and defenders.
Why the Grizzlies can cover
Memphis has been impressive at home this year with an average point differential in home games of 8.24 points. New York’s average differential on the road is -0.5. While the Grizzlies have done more with less for much of the year, they are healthy heading into Friday’s game, with the exception of Dillon Brooks. The Knicks, on the other hand, won’t have Obi Toppin, Quinten Grimes or Nerlens Noel.
The Grizzlies have won and covered in eight of their last 10 home games. Only four teams have won more home games than Memphis. The Knicks have the fourth fewest road wins in the Eastern Conference despite their recent hot streak.
