It was a short slate yesterday with all three underdogs covering the spread. Los Angeles was the lone favorite to win outright and that is the team’s sixth consecutive victory.
Market Report for Friday, November 12th
Big slate and little time so let’s get started.
*Indicates team is on the second leg of a back-to-back
**Lines are opening numbers
New York Knicks (-1, 225) at Charlotte Hornets
After the loss to the Bucks on Wednesday the Knicks fell to 2-5 ATS in their last seven games. Over that span they have allowed 113.5 points per 100 possessions, have a -3.5 net rating and opponents have shot 40.6% from the perimeter. New York’s perimeter defense is killing them, and Charlotte has the personnel to exacerbate that issue. The Hornets are an analytically sound team on offense that works off dribble penetration. They own the third-highest frequency of attempts within four feet while ranking second in 3-point shooting (38.5%). New York’s starting lineup is also one of the worst in the NBA, leading the league in possessions played but ranking in the 8th percentile in net rating (-15.6). Charlotte is not a perfect team by any stretch, especially on defense, but this Knicks team is overvalued by the market and I will take my shot any time I believe there to be line value.
Play: Hornets (+ 1.5)
