The New York Knicks are finding every possible way to lose games on their seven-game skid, and they’ll have a tough matchup against a surging Los Angeles Clippers team on Sunday. 

New York blew another lead to the Phoenix Suns on Sunday, losing on a game-winner by Cam Johnson even though Devin Booker and Chris Paul both missed the game for Phoenix. 

Meanwhile, the Clippers have won five straight games and are now just two games behind the Minnesota Timberwolves for the No. 7 seed in the West. 

Here are the odds via WynnBET for Sunday’s late game:

Knicks vs. Clippers Odds, Spread and Total


  • Knicks +4.5 (-110)
  • Clippers -4.5 (-110)


  • Knicks: +155
  • Clippers: -190


  • 218.5 (Over -110/Under -110)

Knicks vs. Clippers Prediction and Pick

The Knicks may have covered against the Suns, but they have only done so twice int their last 12 games, making them an auto-fade for me on Sunday night. 

The Clippers are playing some great basketball as of late, posting a top three defensive rating over their five-game winning streak. 

The Knicks’ season-long statistics are starting to show how badly they’ve been playing, as New York is 25th in offense and 17th in defense. Over the last 10 games, the team’s defensive rating is 28th in the NBA. 

This should be a no-brainer, as the Knicks have constantly blown leads over the past month. 

Pick: Clippers -4.5 (-110)
