Hawks vs. Knicks Predictions

After finishing fourth in the East with a record of 41-31 SU last year, New York briefly kept that same ball rolling with another solid start to this season, as the Knicks opened with a sturdy 11-9 SU and 9-11 ATS run– while tallying 106.3 OPPG and allowing just 106.1 DPPG across that span.

The Knicks have looked like a shell of that squad since the closing days of November though, considering New York enters Tuesday riding a miserable 19-32 SU skid – while ranking 27th in scoring and 24th in offensive efficiency across that stretch (106 OPPG, 1.061 OE).

On the other hand, Atlanta stumbled out to a surprisingly poor start to the season, as the Hawks kicked things off with a frustrating 16-25 SU and 14-27 ATS skid – despite getting tagged as favorites in 25 of those matchups.

Atlanta has played solid, yet inconsistent basketball since the early stages of January though, considering the Hawks boast records of 19-11 SU and 15-15 ATS across their last 30 games – while yielding lofty averages of 114.8 OPPG and 113.1 DPPG during that span.

I’ll take the over here, as the Hawks are 4-4 SU and 1-7 ATS in their last eight games, while tallying 116.1 OPPG and surrendering 115.3 DPPG during that timeframe – setting the stage for a high-scoring back-and-forth battle against a Knicks squad that’s averaging 112.2 OPPG across their latest 7-2 ATS stretch.

Atlanta Hawks Betting Analysis

  • SU: 35-36
  • ATS: 29-42
  • O/U: 37-34

Atlanta was inevitably cursed with unrealistic expectations after last year’s impressive Eastern Conference Finals’ run, but the Hawks surprisingly lost 26-of-41 games out of the gate to start the season, despite getting tagged as favorites in 25 of those contests.

The Hawks have been on quite the rollercoaster since New Year’s Day though, considering Atlanta is 19-11 SU and 15-15 ATS in their last 30 games – despite averaging a lofty 114.8 OPPG across that window.

New York Knicks Betting Analysis

  • SU: 30-41
  • ATS: 33-38
  • O/U: 35-36

The Knicks seemingly caught the entire conference by surprise last season, as New York finished fourth in the East with a sturdy record of 41-31 SU, before inevitably getting outmatched by Atlanta from top-to-bottom in a quick five-game set to open the playoffs.

The Knicks haven’t caught anybody off guard this year though, considering New York ranks 12th in the East straight-up and ninth against the spread with records of 30-41 SU and 33-38 ATS – despite getting tagged as favorites in 34 matchups over the course of this season.

Hawks vs. Knicks Betting Conclusion

After following back-to-back home wins with an ugly loss to the Jazz on Sunday night (L, 108-93), the Knicks enter Tuesday’s contest as short home underdogs against the Hawks at Madison Square Garden – marking the eighth time Atlanta has been favored across their last ten games.

I’ll take the over here, as the Knicks are 5-5 SU and 7-3 ATS in their last ten games, while generating 111.28 OPPG and allowing 105.4 DPPG during that timeframe – setting the stage for a competitive high-scoring battle against a Hawks squad that’s averaging 116.8 OPPG across their latest 4-3 SU stretch.
