    Before making any Thunder 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 well over $10,000 in profit for $100 players on its top-rated NBA picks 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 Thunder are very good on defense. Opponents are scoring only 108.5 points per 100 possessions against Oklahoma City, ranking in the top 10 of the NBA. The Thunder are also in the top 10 in field-goal percentage defense, with top-10 marks against 2-point shots and 3-point shots. Oklahoma City is No. 3 in the NBA in free-throw prevention, giving up only 19.1 attempts per game, and the Thunder do a solid job in preventing points in the paint (45.8 per game). Oklahoma City is also elite in transition defense, giving up only 9.8 fast-break points per contest.

    The model also knows the Knicks have two-way strengths. New York is in the top seven in offensive rebound rate and second-chance points, putting pressure on opponents after missing shots. The Knicks are also No. 3 in the NBA in fre- throw creation, with a top-10 mark in 3-pointers per game. On defense, the Knicks hold opponents to 42.4 points in the paint per game, and New York is No. 6 in the NBA in field-goal percentage allowed at 44.4 percent.

    Now, it has set its sights on Thunder vs. Knicks. We can tell you the model is leaning under the total, and it also says one side of the spread hits in almost 70 percent of simulations! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any NBA picks.
