November 2 NBA Action: Houston Rockets @ New York Knicks

Houston Rockets @ New York Knicks u218 (-110)

Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, New York

November 2, 2016, 4:30PM PDT

Our computer simulation work calls for a combined total in the range of 212 to 216 when the Rockets visit the Knicks this afternoon. Accordingly, we are siding with the under.

Both teams played just last night. New York's O/U in the second of back-to-back games was 6-11-1 during the 2015-16 season. Further the Knicks OVER is just 17-24-1 at MSG since last year. New York O/U is also 19-31 following a losing effort and 11-20 versus Western Conference foes.

Further, though the Rockets 50-41 O/U record since last season suggests a bias in favor of the over, Houston is more likely to tend toward the under at home (23-21) and against the East (16-14). Also, the under collected in five of Houston's last seven out.

For context, our approach is 1-1 this season picking totals on games featuring the Rockets. Tonight's matchup marks the first Knicks game we are playing.

Happy betting!!
