New York Knicks Totals Preview 2017-18

Last Updated: 2017-10-30

The New York Knicks were one of the tougher teams to get a read on in the 2016-17 season, at least as it pertains to totals. New York didn’t show many strong tendencies one way or another and were pretty much as 50-50 team in most of the different categories we’ve been looking at. The Knicks are 2-3 in the early going of this season.

New York was 19-21-1 at home last year and 19-20-1 on the road, while scoring averaged 211.4 in their home games and 212.4 when they were the away team. It was more of the same regardless if they were playing the Eastern Conference or the Western Conference and 7-9 division record is another area where New York was pretty much a .500 team.

It was more of the same as a favorite or an underdog, while the Knicks did show a slight tendency to go over following a win, with a 16-14 mark, compared to 22-26-3 when playing after a loss.

The Knicks were 10-5 in the second of back-to-back games, including a 7-3 mark when the second game was played on the road.

New York showed a bit of an under tendency when playing games with lower totals, going 11-16-1 in games where the total was 210 or lower and 16-13-2 in those games where the over/under was at least 215 points. The Knicks were 8-4-1 in games where the total was 220 or higher and 2-0 in the two games they played where the total was at least 225.

Best Over Situation: Finding situations for the Knicks is a bit of a challenge, due to their tendency for playing close to .500 in most of the meaningful categories. But the Knicks’ 8-4-1 record in games with a total of at least 220 is where we’ll start here and a closer breakdown, shows that while New York was 4-3 in those games against the Western Conference, they were a solid 4-1-1 when playing Eastern Conference teams with a total of 220 or higher.

Best Under Situation: We run into the same problems here, as the Knicks don’t have many under situations either. The 11-16-1 ledger when the total was 210 or lower is probably the best place to start, but the Knicks went under about the same percentage whether the game was at home or on the road, after a win or after a loss and against the East or the West. We can bump the winning percentage up slightly by adding that it can’t be the second game of a back-to-back situation and that improves it to 8-13-1.
