They have won eight in a row, including three games in overtime. New York has also covered its past 11 games dating back to April 2.

Raptors at Knicks: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Knicks 117, Raptors 111

Money line (ML)

The KNICKS (-160) are white-hot right now, something we haven’t seen in a while. In fact, the last time New York won eight straight was March 5-21, 2014, and it hasn’t won nine in a row since a 13-game run from March 18-April 9, 2013.

While they’re in rather uncharted territory, New York is the play, as they are showing no signs of slowing down and already beat Toronto once during the win streak.

Against the spread (ATS)

The KNICKS -3.5 (-110) haven’t had a non-cover since a 99-86 loss against the Dallas Mavericks on April 2. They have been cover kings lately, including a home win and cover over the Raps on April 11, 102-96.

There is a little more risk here than the money line, obviously, as they need to win by at least two buckets. But I’m not willing to bet against them right now. Are you?

Over/Under (O/U)

OVER 216.5 (-110) is the play, and the Knicks are actually the reason. Yes, they still allow the fewest points per game in the NBA, but the Over has cashed in five of the past six games, with New York going for 109 or more points in six straight. It has also allowed 110.2 PPG across the past five outings.
