Best NBA Bets Today: Player Props & Expert Betting Picks
Knicks Moneyline (+100) Over Hawks
Knicks vs. Hawks Under 226.5 Points
This is an important game for Atlanta. While the Hawks are not in any real danger of missing the playoffs, a victory would essentially eliminate the Knicks from playoff contention.
Atlanta (35-36) enters the homestretch of the season in 10th in the Eastern Conference. The Hawks sit 1.5 games behind ninth-place Charlotte, although they are five games clear of the Wizards and Knicks. The Hawks are coming off a disappointing home loss to the Pelicans (117-112) on Sunday, marking just their second setback in the last six. However, they have lost eight straight on the road, where they have not played well all season long. Atlanta will not have John Collins and Lou Williams tonight, and Bogdan Bogdanovic (quadriceps) is questionable
New York has kept its slim playoff chances alive by winning two of their last three games, although they are coming off a 108-93 setback to Utah on Sunday, and have gone 5-5 in March. The Knicks have played fairly well defensively, recently outscoring their opponents by over six points a game during this 10 game stretch. Julius Randle and RJ Barrett have really taken over the offense, as both players are averaging over 24 points and each launching more than 21 shots a game.
While the Knicks have been a major disappointment, they have dominated teams with a losing record. New York has also beaten Atlanta in each of the first three matchups and each of those victories has been by at least nine points. Defense has been a key for the Knicks in each of those victories, as they have held the Hawks to under the century mark twice, as well as an aggregate effective field goal percentage of 48.1%. Furthermore, none of those contests totaled more than 225 points. OddsShopper gives the under a 51% chance of hitting.

Clippers Spread (+6.5 Points) Over Nuggets
Clippers vs. Nuggets Under 225.5 Points
This is another contest that is more important for one team than the other, though both squads are firmly in the top-10 of the Western Conference. Expect the Nuggets to win the game, however, the Clippers should keep it close.
Denver (42-30) sits in sixth place, but they are only a half-game on the right side of the Timberwolves, who occupy the first play-in spot as the seventh seed. The Nuggets enter the contest on a two-game losing streak and losers of four of six. The Nuggets have played well on the offensive end during this recent stretch, but they have struggled defensively. The Nuggets have allowed their opponents to register a 54.3% effective field goal percentage, and they have not forced many turnovers while also doing a poor job on the defensive boards.
Meanwhile, Los Angeles is entrenched in the eighth playoff spot unless they completely collapse down the stretch. The Clippers have struggled mightily on the offensive end lately, especially on the road.
Denver has won two of the three matchups this year with each game being no greater than a three-point difference. OddsShopper gives the Clippers a 54% chance of covering the spread.
