NBA Pick Against the Spread (January 24, 2013)
When the New York Knicks vs. Boston Celtics tip-off on TNT on Thursday night all eyes will be on Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett as they face off for the first time since the heated incident that spilled over to the team buses after the last meeting.
The NBA Odds for the game between the New York Knicks vs. Boston Celtics opened with the Celtics as slight (-1) point favorites in a game of two struggling basketball teams. Both superstars should be more concerned with just trying to get a win.

For the Knicks Boston has become a house of horrors. New York has dropped 13 straight meetings in Boston – including the postseason – dating back to a 101-77 victory Nov. 24, 2006. Anthony is struggling from the field and will have to get the entire team involved in this game if they have any hopes of winning. Luckily for the Knicks, the Celtics may be playing even worse.
The Celtics have dropped four straight games in ugly fashion as they have lost lopsided games to some of the league’s lowly teams like the Detroit Pistons and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Rajon Rondo will look to have another great game against the Knicks as he has in the past, but he may not be enough against a focused Knicks team.
The Celtics are 0-4 against the spread (ATS) in their last 4 games playing on 1 days’ rest, 1-3-1 ATS in the last five home games and 1-6 ATS in the last seven games following a loss.
The Knicks are 17-6-1 ATS in their last 24 games following a loss and 3-1-1 ATS in the last five games on the NBA highway. Anthony and the Knicks get their revenge by beating a Celtics team that is struggling on the court.
