Brooklyn Nets vs. New York 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 during that timeframe.
However, New York has looked like a shell of that squad since the closing days of November, considering the Knicks enter Wednesday riding a miserable 24-35 SU skid – while ranking 27th in the league in scoring and 23rd in offensive efficiency across that window (106.5 OPPG, 1.069 OE).
On the other hand, Brooklyn also posted an excellent start to the season, as the Nets opened with an impressive 26-14 SU run – with 15 of those victories coming by eight points or more.
The Nets have been incredibly inconsistent since trading away James Harden though, considering Brooklyn enters Wednesday riding a head-scratching 14-24 SU skid – while tallying 113.1 OPPG and surrendering 116.4 DPPG during that timeframe.
I’ll back Brooklyn here, as the Knicks are 10-12 SU and 11-11 ATS in their last 22 games, while scoring just 111.2 OPPG and surrendering 108.9 DPPG during that span – setting the stage for an unfavorable home matchup against a Nets squad that’s averaging 121.4 OPPG across their latest 8-5 SU stretch.

Brooklyn Nets Betting Analysis
- SU: 40-38
- ATS: 31-45-2
- O/U: 39-38-1
After a heartbreaking Game 7 loss in last year’s Eastern Conference Finals, the Nets bounced back with an excellent start to this season, as Brooklyn cruised into January boasting a 26-14 SU record – yet still ranked near the bottom of the barrel ATS across that window with a record of 17-22-1 ATS.
However, Brooklyn completely fell apart during KD’s latest 20-game absence, considering the Nets enter Wednesday riding a frustrating 14-24 SU skid, which includes an 8-14 SU tally in matchups with Kyrie Irving – and a 6-10 SU mark in efforts without him.
New York Knicks Betting Analysis
- SU: 35-44
- ATS: 37-42
- O/U: 40-39
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 from top-to-bottom by Atlanta 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 11th in the East straight-up and tenth against the spread with records of 35-44 SU and 37-42 ATS – despite getting tagged as favorites in 37 matchups over the course of the season.
Brooklyn Nets vs. New York Knicks Head-to-Head
The Nets swept a three-game regular-season set against New York last year, with all three matchups soaring over the total at an average of 226.7 PPG. Brooklyn is also 3-0 SU against New York this season, with their first two matchups cruising over the total at an average of 219.5 PPG – while their most recent affair stayed under with a score of 110-107 (U 224).
Key Players to Watch
- BKN: Kyrie Irving - PG (27.1 PPG, 4.1 REB, 5.6 AST)
- BKN: Kevin Durant - SF (30.1 PPG, 7.3 REB, 6.1 AST)
- NYK: RJ Barrett - SG (20.1 PPG, 5.9 REB, 2.9 AST)
- NYK: Evan Fournier - SF (14.2 PPG, 2.6 REB, 2.1 AST)
Brooklyn Nets vs. New York Knicks Betting Conclusion
After stomping the Magic in Orlando on Sunday night (W, 118-88), the Knicks return home for Wednesday’s contest as relatively steep underdogs against the Nets at Madison Square Garden – marking the seventh time New York has been an underdog across their last ten games.
I’ll back Brooklyn here, as the Nets are 8-5 SU and 6-7 ATS in their last 13 games, while generating 121.4 OPPG and allowing just 114.5 DPPG during that span – likely presenting an uphill battle for a Knicks squad that’s averaging 111.2 OPPG across their latest 10-12 SU skid.
