The Barclays Center will play host to two cross town rivals as the New York Knicks take on the Brooklyn Nets

Brooklyn swept the season series in the 2020-21 campaign, but every game was decided by seven or fewer points. The series between these two teams all time is knotted at 101 apiece heading into tonight’s game. 

Here are the odds via WynnBET:

Knicks vs. Nets Odds, Spread and Total

  • Nets: -260


  • 217.0 (Over -110/Under -110)

Knicks vs. Nets Prediction and Pick

We’re going to see a new-look Knicks lineup, as head coach Tom Thibodeau announced that Kemba Walker (who was struggling mightily defensively) is out of the rotation. 

Alec Burks, who started for him in the team’s win over the Atlanta Hawks, will remain in that role and should give the Knicks a boost on both ends of the floor with his hot shooting. 

Burks had 23 points and seven boards in over 39 minutes on Saturday.

Brooklyn is coming off a loss to the Phoenix Suns and will be without Joe Harris (ankle surgery) for the foreseeable future. Sure, the Nets have the two best players in this matchup in Kevin Durant and James Harden, but the Knicks have played well in games against playoff opponents so far this year (6-2 record). 

RJ Barrett and Derrick Rose are questionable, which could alter this line, but I’m going to lean towards New York as a road underdog, where it is 3-1 against the spread this season. 

Pick: Knicks +6.5 (-110)
