Knicks Over the Spurs... Seriously

It's not often that you see us betting on the Knicks or against the Spurs, but tonight we're doing both in the same game.

New York Knicks +4 1/2 over the San Antonio Spurs

Without Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker, the Spurs will struggle as they have all season--even at home. They really shouldn't even be favored for tonight's contest.

The Spurs knocked Mike D'Antoni's Suns out of the playoffs last year, so there's a little bit of personal grudge factor going on. With D'Antoni getting the Knicks to play a fast-paced game, the Knicks look good early, thriving in the new coach's system.

Speaking of systems, our Free NBA Picks aren't off to the best start after a great year last year, but that should change tonight.

Good luck!
