The NBA Road warrior side is on OKC. Game 803 at 2:30 eastern. The Knicks are a mess. Carmelo Anthony the latest Knick with the injury bug as he had to come out of the game with 6 minutes to go in Orlando on Monday with the Knicks holding a big lead,as high as 25 at one point, before the Magic whittled it down to 2. The Knicks were able to hold on in that game for us. However Raymond Felton injured his groin after returning after a 2 weeks absence. The Knicks have struggled in these early start games, as it has become clear they are enjoying the night life a little too much, which has prompted Coach Woodson to implement a 10:00 curfew before these afternoon games. The Knicks are 1-7 to the spread vs non conference teams and have dropped 11 of 14 to the spread at home. The Thunder are 27-11 ats off a straight up favored loss and are 4-1 straight up and ats wit 2 exact days of rest. In their last game they lost at home as a 10 point favorite to Toronto and were flat as a short stack at IHOP after taking down the Spurs on the road prior to that game. This game fits another of our cutting edge database systems that plays against home dogs of 5 or more like the Knicks that covered the spread on the road in their last game if the line was +3 to-3 and are taking on an opponent that scored 90 or more and failed to cover the spread at home in their last game.
These home dogs are a hideous 0-8 and are losing by a 106-94 score since 1995. OKC was said to be annoyed that they are on the road on Christmas day and may come out and take it on on the Knicks. Look for OKC To emerge with a win and cover.
