The NBA schedule offers a seven-game slate on Sunday, November 13, including this inter-conference duel in NYC, and here you can check out the best Thunder vs. Knicks betting pick and odds.
Oklahoma City will open a four-game road trip when they take on New York at Madison Square Garden. The Knicks are N/A favorites on PointsBet Sportsbook, while the total is set at N/A points. These inter-conference rivals have met twice last season and the Thunder won both duels.
Thunder snapped a losing streak with a win over Toronto
The Oklahoma City Thunder (5-7, 7-5-0 ATS) managed to end a four-game losing skid with a 132-113 home win over the Toronto Raptors. It was a nice bounce-back win from a double-overtime loss to the Milwaukee Bucks and Oklahoma City responded with a season-high 132 points. The Thunder shot 55.9% from the field and recorded 31 assists opposite Toronto’s 20.
Eugene Omoruyi surprisingly led the Thunder with career-high 23 points. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander added 20 points, four assists, and game-high three steals, Aaron Wiggins had 17 points, seven dimes, and five rebounds, Josh Giddey chipped in 15 points, team-high nine boards, and five dishes, while Aleksej Pokusevski scored 14 points with five rebounds, and game-high four blocks.
PF Chet Holmgren has sustained a Lisfranc injury in his right foot and will miss the 2022-2023 season. SF Darius Bazley (ankle) is questionable to face the Knicks on Sunday.
Knicks beat Detroit at home
The New York Knicks (6-6, 5-6-1 ATS) bounced back from their worst display of the season and a massive loss against the city rivals Brooklyn Nets with a 121-112 home victory over the Detroit Pistons. New York scored 68 points in the first half and had a double-digit lead for most of the second half. They were up by 17 at one moment and deservedly secured a W.
R.J. Barrett led the Knicks with a season-high 30 points, five rebounds, and five assists, which was his first 30/5/5 performance of the year. Jalen Brunson followed him with 26 points, game-high seven dishes, and game-high four steals, while Julius Randle contributed with 21 points, eight boards, and five dimes.
C Mitchell Robinson is out of commission due to a right knee sprain, and he is not expected to be available until the end of November.
- 1-4 ATS in the last five games
- 8-1 ATS in the last nine games against the Western Conference opponents
Oklahoma City Thunder vs. New York Knicks Pick
Oklahoma City lost four of five road games so far, while New York won four of six home games. The Knicks will be eager to win this one before taking on a five-game road trip, during which will face tough rivals such as Denver, Golden State, and Phoenix. The Thunder have a lot of young guys on the roster and are playing with plenty of energy, so it won’t be an easy game for the hosts. Still, the Knicks are a more experienced team and I am backing them to get a W, particularly because OKC is not playing well away from home. R.J. Barrett scored 22+ points in four of his last five games, and he is a player to watch in this tilt.
Pick: Take the Knicks at N/A
The Knicks failed to reach a 100-point mark only twice this season, but the Thunder have a solid defense that is the 7th best in the NBA. OKC knows to frustrate the opposing offenses but will allow around 110 points here, which is their season average when it comes to points allowed per game. Still, I don’t expect to see a high-scoring affair at MSG on Sunday. The total has gone Under in four of New York’s last six games, while the total went Under in six of the Knicks’ previous seven games played on a Sunday.
Pick: Go Under N/A points
