Los Angeles Lakers vs New York Knicks Prediction: Trust New York to Cover

Lakers vs Knicks odds

The Lakers are coming off of one of their biggest comebacks of the season as they came back from a 17-point deficit to nearly defeat the Clippers before Reggie Jackson broke their hearts in the final seconds.

The Knicks are coming off of a poor performance vs the Grizzlies in a 12-point loss but I think this is a perfect spot to back the Knicks in a bounce-back situation. The Knicks have the size down low with Mitchell Robinson, Taj Gibson, and Julius Randle to be able to contain Anthony Davis and think the Knicks are going to have a field day offensively against a very weak Laker defense.

The Lakers last game against the Clippers was also somewhat of a demoralizing loss as they came all the way back just to lose in the final seconds and not sure how high their energy level will be tonight. The Lakers have not been a good team to rely on as favorites to cover spreads and the Knicks defense should be able to give them fits tonight. My pick for tonight's best bet in the NBA is going to be with the New York Knicks at +4 +100 (LowVig).
