6* Sunday NBA PHI/NYK
Philadelphia vs. New York,
02/24/2013 19:00 EDT,
Score: 93 - 99
Point Spread: +10½/-104 Philadelphia
The New York Knicks host the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday. New York is coming off a 100-98 loss to
Toronto, while Philadelphia dropped their last game to Miami, 114-90.
The 76ers have lost their last two road games by a combined nine points, yet find themselves installed
as double-digit underdogs against a free falling Knicks team.
Philadelphia is 5-2 ATS in their last seven games against Eastern Conference opponents. No one
deserves more credit for that than Jrue Holiday.
The 76ers’ point guard has been stellar of late, and has brought a little extra when playing against the Knicks, averaging 26.3 points per game in three meetings with them this season.
The Knicks are 0-5-1 ATS in their last six games, yet the public continues to overvalue them because of
their hot start to the season.
The team won their first two meetings with Philadelphia, but dropped the most recent meeting on January 26th, 97-80. The Knicks have lost four in a row and five of their last six games overall. Carmelo Anthony is shooting just 33.3 percent from the field over his last three games.
The underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings between these teams. Take Philadelphia.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
