Pacers at Knicks picks and predictions

Prediction

Knicks 110, Pacers 108

Moneyline

BET KNICKS (-162).

The Knicks have been almost unstoppable at home and have tallied at least 106 points in all 6 playoffs games at MSG. New York has beaten Indiana by 30, 9 and 4 at home, so outside of Game 1, it has been a solid victory for the Knicks. New York was among the best home teams in the NBA, going 32-15.

The Pacers are 1-5 on the road this postseason and have a younger, more inexperienced team that could struggle in a rowdy New York environment. Despite the juice, take KNICKS (-162).

Against the spread

PASS.

Game 7 is where the magic happens, and there’s a good chance this game ends close. Two of the 6 games have ended within 5 or fewer points. Expect this series finale to be a hard-fought battle.

While the Knicks at -3.5 (-110) is enticing, avoid the spread and take the home team’s moneyline option.

Over/Under

LEAN OVER 207 (-110).

Both teams have trended toward the Over during the playoffs. The Pacers are 7-5 O/U. They sat 2nd in the NBA in pace throughout the regular season and have a style of player that is faster in tempo.

The Knicks are also 7-5 O/U and have scored 121 or more points in all 3 home games in this 2nd-round series. New York has tallied at least 110 points in 6 of its 12 playoffs games.

Expect both sides to find the rhythm and take OVER 207 (-110).
