Knicks vs Hawks Betting Preview

Both teams have been underwhelming this season. The Knicks are 3-9 in December and the Hawks have gone 3-6. The teams last played in November with New York winning 99-90.

It’s a pretty even matchup. The teams have similar records, both have been terrible against the spread (ATS) and they’re both missing a number of players. The Hawks however looked strong in their win against a near-healthy Philadelphia team and will bring that momentum with them to New York.

Trae Young remains hopeful of playing in Madison Square Garden and if he does, he’ll put on a show just like he did in the playoffs. If he plays, I’m backing the Hawks to play the role of the Grinch this Christmas. Back Atlanta to cover the spread and perhaps steal a victory in front of Knicks fans at the Garden.
