The Atlanta Hawks vs New York Knicks Game 5 NBA Betting Preview, Picks, and Predictions for Wednesday June 2, 2021

Wednesday NBA Betting Preview:

Atlanta Hawks vs New York Knicks Game 5 tips off this Wednesday, June 2nd and I got Free Picks and Predictions followed up by premium pick access in the Mavericks vs Clippers game, so let’s jump right into today’s sports betting report.

The Draftkings NBA odds have the New York Knicks listed as a -1.5 point favorite and the over/under is at 208 total points. The NBA Betting public is split right down in the middle with 50% of their money behind the Hawks as the road underdog.

The Knicks come into this game now down 3-1 in the series after dropping their last two games by double digits. New York will need to win the next 3 matchups in a row against a young hungry Hawks team, which will be a very difficult task and the oddsmakers agree since Atlanta is now listed as a -1400 favorite to win the series outright.

The main story for the Knicks this first round series has been Julius Randle’s shooting. He’s a miserable 20 of 73 from the field, which comes out to less than 28%. This season he average almost 46% from the field, so that’s a very significant drop-off. New York’s Coach Tom Thibodeau should be able to make the necessary offensive and defensive adjustments to get Randle out of this slump and our numbers show Randle finally putting up a very impressive performance.

The Knicks had the best home defense in the league this regular season that only gave up an average of 104.8 points per game, so they’ll need to get back to those ways if they want any chance of winning this game against Trae Young and the Hawks.

Atlanta is 1-5 against the spread in their last 6 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600 and the total has gone under in 6 of the Hawks last 7 games.

New York is 6-0-1 against the spread in their last 7 games playing on two days rest and the total has gone under in 7 of the Knicks last 9 games this season.

In this Hawks vs Knicks Game 5, we’re rolling with the Knicks in the first quarter -1 and laying that -110 price.
