The New York Knicks are 2-0 against the Detroit Pistons and will look to improve to 3-0 on Saturday on the road. The Knicks are toward the end of the playoff picture while the Pistons have the NBA’s worst record. We’ve taken a look at the betting odds for the match on DraftKings Sportsbook to determine what plays are worth considering.
Pick ATS: Knicks -2
The Knicks are looking like a legitimate playoff contender and are up against the NBA’s worst team. RJ Barrett (ankle) was initially listed questionable to play but has been upgraded to probable ahead of tip-off. New York will be at full strength and has already beaten the Pistons by double-digits twice this year. It would take a miraculous turnaround for Detroit to make this a close game. Picking the Knicks against the spread seems like a no-brainer here.
Player Prop: Saddiq Bey O2.5 three-pointers (+122)
Bey didn’t kick off April with great shooting from deep and made just one of his six attempts. However, he’s still made more triples than any NBA rookie and is converting at a 38% clip. He hit three or more threes in 44% of his games in February and March, and his playing time is on the rise. If the game is competitive, Bey will be on the floor and making use of his best skills.
