Dating back the last two years, which amounts to 10 games between these two clubs, the Knicks and Sixers have played eight ‘under’ contests. The ‘total’ is relatively low in this one, but we think with Amare Stoudemire still out of the fold for the Knickerbockers, it is a slam dunk that this one is going to stay with 185 or so. The Sixers just held a fast paced Denver team to 75 points, and it historically does a great job of limiting possessions and shots. The Knicks too, are preaching more defense this year, and that really showed when the Heat were held to just 84 points on 33-of-71 shooting on Friday night in the opener at Madison Square Garden. The matchup just isn’t there for both of these teams to succeed offensively, and it feels like both teams are going to be struggling. As long as neither team gives up all that many free points at the foul line, something that both have historically done well since Doug Collins and Mike Woodson respectively have taken over for the 76ers and Knicks, this should be a plodding game with both teams in the 80s when push comes to shove.
76ers @ Knicks NBA Pick: Under 188.5
