Match Predict – Handicap (-2) for Knicks
Bookmakers’ analysts believe the New York Knicks are favourites for the encounter. We can agree with them. The Pelicans don’t look like themselves without Williamson. Even if he does return to the pack, we shouldn’t expect him to be flashy right away.
Total Points Over 224
The Knicks average 114 home points, the Pelicans – 114 away. The teams’ head-to-head encounters tend to be quite productive. In the last two out of three games, the 230-point mark has been surpassed.
New York Knicks vs New Orleans Pelicans: Key Numbers & Markets
Preliminary review and match prediction for New York Knicks vs New Orleans Pelicans
New York Knicks:
The New York Knicks have a three-match winning streak that has not yet been broken. Thibodeau’s squad is on track to reach projected capacity, and it will be difficult for their opponents to match up with these teams.
In the last game, the Knicks took on the Atlanta Hawks (122-101). Brunson and Randle combined for 53 points, nearly half the team’s total.
The New York Knicks are currently in sixth place in the Eastern Conference. Thibodeau’s squad won 33 games and lost 27. It should be easy against the New Orleans Pelicans, as they are as bloodless as possible.
The Knicks have won five of the last six meetings.

New Orleans Pelicans:
The New Orleans Pelicans could only win once in their last four games, with Oklahoma City Thunder (103-100). Without Williamson, the Pelicans are struggling.
The Pelicans lost their last game to the Toronto Raptors and Brendan Ingram’s 36 points in that game were still not enough for an overall win for the Louisiana team.
The Pelicans’ position in the standings is not very enviable. The Louisiana team now has 30 wins and 30 losses each and ranks eighth in the Western Conference, though the New Orleans Pelicans have been in the lead for some time.
The Pelicans look disastrous on the road, having lost eight of their last nine games.
The Pelicans are conceding 116.8 points per game on the season on the road.
Game day in the Big Apple 🍎
