In their previous meeting earlier this season, the Knicks won at home by 117-93, beating the odds. Blazers have 4 straight home wins against the Knicks. Under is 8-1 in their last 9 meetings and 4-0 in their last 4 Portland games. Knicks are 3-1 ATS in their last 4 overall meetings but 2-6 in their last 8 in Portland. Blazers are 4-4 at home, while Knicks are 5-5 on the road. Knicks have the best defense in the NBA (102.8 to 115.9 ppg) but also the worse offense (101.3 to 114.9 ppg).

I’m going to pick the under with -213.5 today. The Blazers are lacking firepower without CJ McCollum and will most likely be forced to follow the low tempo of the Knicks.
