Pacers vs. Knicks odds, spread: 2019 NBA picks, Dec. 7 predictions from proven computer model
The SportsLine projection model has a pick for the clash between Pacers and Knicks. Here are the results:
The Indiana Pacers will take on the New York Knicks at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday at Madison Square Garden. New York is 4-18 overall and 3-9 at home, while Indiana is 14-8 overall and 5-6 on the road. It's the first game for the Knicks since firing head coach David Fizdale earlier in the week. The Knicks are currently mired in an eight-game losing streak. The Pacers are 11-9-2 against the spread this season while the Knicks are 10-12 against the number. Meanwhile, the Pacers have won seven of the last 10 head-to-head meeting but the Knicks hold a 5-4-1 edge against the spread. Indiana is favored by 5.5 points in the latest Knicks vs. Pacers odds, while the over-under is set at 207.5.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times, and last season it returned a whopping $4,280 on its top-rated NBA spread and money line picks. It's already returned over $1,400 in profit on all its top-rated NBA picks during the 2019-20 season and enters Week 7 on a blistering 15-3 run on all top-rated NBA against the spread picks. Anybody who has followed it has seen huge returns.
Now, it has simulated Knicks vs. Pacers 10,000 times and the results are in. We can tell you that the model is leaning over, and it's also generated a point-spread pick that is hitting in almost 70 percent of simulations. You can only see the pick at SportsLine.
It's never fun to lose, and it even less fun have a 129-92 setback, which was the final score in New York's tilt against Denver on Thursday. Small forward Marcus Morris struggled with 10 points on 4-for-13 shooting in his 26 minutes on the court.
However, the Knicks will be hoping to see a philosophical boost from new interim head coach Mike Miller, a long-time NCAA head coach who spent the past four years coaching the Knicks' G-League affiliate in Westchester and winning 2018 NBA G-League Coach of the Year. The Knicks actually rank second in the NBA this season in offensive rebounding percentage (25.1), so look for Miller to direct his players to hit the boards hard to take advantage with second-chance points.
Meanwhile, it was a hard-fought matchup, but Indiana had to settle for a 108-101 loss against Detroit on Friday. The loss dropped them to sixth in the Eastern Conference standings and Detroit's dominance on the boards was a big reason why the Pacers struggled. Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner will have to do a better job corralling misses for Indiana to cover on the road on Saturday night.
So who wins Pacers vs. Knicks? And which side of the spread cashes in almost 70 percent of simulations? Visit SportsLine right now to see which side of the spread you need to jump on, all from the computer model that has crushed its NBA picks.
