NBA Betting Prediction: The Philadelphia 76ers put up an impressive performance to end their three game slump however it was against arguably the worst team in the NBA the Bobcats. While the New York Knicks have been rolling team by average of 25+ points. For a team that lost three in a row just before beating the lowly Bobcats for the Sixers to be listed a favorite in this game is very generous by the handycappers. I look for the Knicks to win tonight on the road and at the very least get helped out by the generous +4 point spread.
