The NBA match between Portland Trailblazers and New York Knicks features Bettingpro.com.au's bet of the day for Wednesday, December 11.
New York Knicks @ Portland Trailblazers – 2.00pm AEST
The New York Knicks are losers of nine straight. That makes them a tough pick even at decent odds and even when playing against a weak team.
However, the Knicks with a big handicap looks like value in a game against the worst team in the Northwest Division, the Portland Trailblazers.
The Knicks have a +9 handicap available. Certainly, nine helpers would not have been enough to save the day for New York on most nights recently.
Denver and Milwaukee beat New York by a lot more than that. However, Portland is nowhere near the calibre of those teams.
Nine points would have helped New York against Indiana, a game the Knicks only lost by one.
Furthermore, nine points of handicap would have done the trick in covering a recent loss to Philly.
Lastly, 9 handicap points would have been a draw against Boston, a team that is much better than Portland.
Take the handicap on New York in this game.
