Jan 10 NBA Action: Betting Total on Charlotte Hornets @ New York Knicks

Charlotte Hornets @ New York Knicks u189

The computers point to a combined total in the range of 183-185 when the injury-riddled Hornets take on the similarly depleted New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden this afternoon.

Adjusted average scores (which consider differences in average scores these teams post at home versus away, and the strength of the opposing defense) also point to a total in the low 180's. Adjusted average scores are indicated in the table below in the column titled Factor 3.

Importantly adjusted average scores do not consider injuries. As several key players are out for this contest, this quantitative factor might be overestimating offensive prowess. Specifically, CBS Sports reports that Al Jefferson, Lance Stephenson and Jannero Pargo will miss today's matchup for Charlotte, and New York will have to manage without Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire and Andrea Bargnani.

Thus, computer simulations, quant work and the injury situation all form a compelling case for the UNDER. We are wagering accordingly.

Happy betting!!
