Our Betting Pick for Today – Bet the Knicks -2

This has been an unpredictable series between the Cleveland Cavaliers and New York Knicks thus far, as evidenced by Game 1 being taken away from them in Cleveland on a grinding out contest 101-97, while then on Tuesday night the Cavs led from start to finish to score an emphatic 107-90 victory on their home court.

Now the series shifts back east and heads to Madison Square Garden in New York City. The Knicks boasted an impressive 23-18 record at home during this season compared to 20-21 for Cleveland on the road this season. Expect MSG to be rocking!

As in Game 1, we anticipate another tight contest with plenty of exciting action. Take the Knicks to cover in a tight one.
