NBA Sunday: Greg Frank picks Nets vs Knicks — with no Kyrie Irving, should you bet the over or under?

Nets (-2.5) @ Knicks (214.5)

Pick: Under 214.5

Kyrie Irving remains sidelined for Brooklyn. The Knicks are last in the NBA in scoring averaging 102.1 points per game. Both teams are not good, but it’s a rivalry affair which we always think will bring out some more defensive intensity. These are three pretty straightforward angles that make us like the under at Madison Square Garden on Sunday. The compete level seems to have ramped up for the lowly Knicks which makes us stay away from taking a side today. Four of New York’s last five games have been decided by seven points or less, and the one that wasn’t was a blowout victory against Cleveland. But the mere fact that they’re playing harder is enough to see them winning this game today and a Nets team that is barely a playoff-caliber team without Irving. However, it’s still the Knicks and it’s a short enough number where the winner of this game probably covers as well. Therefore, we’ll just stick with the under in this one.
