5* NBA ATS ABSOLUTE SMASH
Utah vs. New York,
02/06/2012 19:30 EDT,
Score: 88 - 99
Point Spread: +3/-103 Utah
Unfortunately the Knicks won't be all that worried about playing basketball tonight, as Amare Stoudemire's brother was killed in a car accident early Monday morning. Stoudemire is currently listed as questionable, but highly doubt he plays tonight.
The Jazz will without question be the more focused team in this game, and I expect them to take control of this game early and never look back. I think Utah had a great shot at winning this game before the tragedy, but now I think they not only cover the spread, but win this game by 7-10 points.
That's not all that is working against the Knicks in this one. New York is just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as a home favorite and are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference. BET UTAH!
