Before making any 76ers vs. Knicks picks, you NEED to check out the NBA predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times and has returned almost $9,000 in profit on its top-rated NBA picks over the past three-plus seasons. The model finished up almost $600 on its top-rated picks last season and enters Week 2 of the 2021-22 NBA season on a stunning 103-68 roll on top-rated NBA picks against the spread. Anyone following it has seen HUGE returns!
The model knows the 76ers have played very well in the early going. Philadelphia is scoring 1.16 points per possession, turning the ball over on fewer than 12 percent of possessions and generating a 59 percent true shooting mark through three games. The 76ers are also potent defensively, including a No. 2 mark in the NBA a season ago. Philadelphia can also focus on New York's sometimes uneasy offense, with the Knicks landing in the bottom ten of the NBA in offensive rating last season.
The model also knows the Knicks are lights-out defensively. New York ranked in the top five of the NBA in defensive rating last season, and the Knicks are allowing only 104.9 points per 100 possessions this season. On the offensive side, the Knicks appear to be improved after myriad additions to the roster. New York is assisting on more than 61 percent of made field goals, and the Knicks are giving the ball away on only 12.9 percent of offensive possessions, a top-10 mark in the sport.
Now, it has set its sights on 76ers vs. Knicks. We can tell you the model is leaning over the total, and it also says one side of the spread hits in well over 50 percent of simulations! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any NBA picks.
