The San Antonio Spurs (33-36) travel to meet the New York Knicks (38-31) Thursday at Madison Square Garden. Tip-off is set for 7:30 p.m. ET. Below, we analyze the Spurs at Knicks odds and lines, with NBA picks and predictions.

The Spurs were dropped in the front end of their two-game road trip to the New York metro area, falling Wednesday in Brooklyn by a 128-116 count as the Over connected.

The Knicks have clinched a postseason spot, but they’re still trying to get home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

New York was tripped up by the Lakers 101-99 in overtime in the final game of its six-game Western Conference road trip.

Spurs at Knicks: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Knicks 107, Spurs 105

Money line (ML)

The Knicks (-225) will cost you two times your potential return in this key game for both sides.

It’s risky, as the Spurs (+180) are still trying to hold off the Sacramento Kings for a play-in spot, so they’ll be bringing it.

AVOID.

Against the spread (ATS)

The SPURS +5.5 (-110) are worth a look at in this battle at MSG. They’ll still be fighting for a playoff spot, while the Knicks -5.5 (-110) have already clinched.

While New York is battling for home-court advantage in the first round, the Spurs should be playing with more desperation, and they’ll keep it close.

Over/Under (O/U)

UNDER 216.5 (-110) is the lean, as this one should resemble a playoff battle with plenty of good defense. The Knicks have hit the Under in three of the past four, and it’s a good bet to happen again here.
