The New York Knicks travel to Dallas to take on the Mavericks on Wednesday night. This is the second time these teams face off this season, the Knicks outscored the Mavericks 108-85 in New York.


The Knicks have showed some signs of life winning their last 2 games against the Kings and the Clippers. They are 14-19 on the road this season and have a 27-38 record overall ranking 5th in the Atlantic division.

New York scored 131 points in their last game against the Kings. Julius Randle hit eight 3-pointers and scored 17 of his career-high 46 points in the third quarter as the New York Knicks rallied from a 20-point deficit and beat the Sacramento Kings 131-115 on Monday night.

Julius Randle is shooting 41.9% and averaging 20 points, 10 rebounds and 5.2 assists for the Knicks. Evan Fournier is averaging 14.4 points for New York. 

In their last 10 games the Knicks are 3-7, averaging 112.6 points, 47.7 rebounds, 21.4 assists, 6.1 steals and 5.2 blocks per game while shooting 44% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 115 points.

Doncic is scoring 28 points per game and averaging 9.3 rebounds for the Mavericks. Brunson, who is likely to play for this game, is averaging 16.2 points, 5.3 ast and 3.7 rebounds for Dallas.

Dallas are 8-2 in their last 10 games, averaging 111.3 points, 39.5 rebounds, 21.2 assists, 6.3 steals and 3.9 blocks per game while shooting 48.1% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 106.9 points.

INJURIES:  Tim Hardaway Jr., Theo Pinson, Marquese Chriss are out.


New York are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games.

New York are 4-12 SU in their last 16 games on the road.

Dallas are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games.

Dallas are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games at home.


The Knicks have averaged 120 points in their last 3 games and are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games on the road. The Mavericks are the better team here but they have covered only 2 of 7 times when the spread was -6 to -9, so I'm not sure if we should trust them to cover. I think the total has been set to low, I know the last game between these two went under but both teams have been involved in high scoring games lately. Take the Over.

PICK: Over 215.5 (-110)
