Bet of the Day December 11 – Knicks with a start the play

The NBA match between Portland Trailblazers and New York Knicks features'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.
