New York Knicks at Boston Celtics, 7 pm Eastern
The Pick: Boston -180, bet $35.71 to win $20
The Knicks beat the Celtics in a double-overtime barnburner on Oct. 20, and I do feel the Celtics remember that game and will want to get one back. The Knicks are 1-4 in their last five games. They also have significant injury issues: Kevin Knox, Opi Toppin, R.J. Barrett, and Immanuel Quickley are all out, and Derrick Rose suffered an ankle injury and had to leave the last game. Boston’s Jayson Tatum is seventh in the league in scoring with 26.2 points per game, and the Celtics have won seven of their last nine at home. I’ll pay extra for a simple win.
