Before making any Knicks vs. Jazz 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 well over $10,000 in profit on its top-rated NBA picks for $100 players over the past three-plus seasons. The model enters Week 17 of the 2021-22 NBA season on a stunning 65-36 roll on all top-rated NBA picks, returning almost $2,400. Anyone following it has seen HUGE returns.

The model knows the Knicks are in the top quartile of the NBA in a few offensive categories, including offensive rebound rate, second-chance points and free-throw attempts. New York is even better on defense, holding opponents to 1.09 points per possession. The Knicks are No. 4 in the NBA in field-goal percentage allowed (44.1 percent) and No. 3 in the NBA in points in the paint allowed (42.0 per game). Opponents make only 51.4 percent of 2-point shots against New York, and the Knicks secure 73.2 percent of available rebounds on the defensive glass.

The model also knows Utah's offense is elite. The Jazz lead the NBA in offensive efficiency, scoring 115.6 points per 100 possessions. Utah is also leading the league in shooting efficiency, including the top 2-point shooting mark (56.9 percent) in the NBA. The Jazz are making 14.6 3-points per game, No. 1 in the league, and Utah creates 22.9 free-throw attempts per game. When the Jazz do miss shots, they secure 28.6 percent of offensive rebounds, leading to 14.2 second-chance points per game.

Now, it has set its sights on Knicks vs. Jazz. We can tell you the model is leaning under the total, and it also says one side of the spread hits in over 60 percent of simulations! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any NBA picks.
