It’s a shame the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets are banged up, because the interstate matchup between them could eventually determine the last playoff spot in the East.

The two teams are meeting up for their respective second games of the season, and we’re getting you primed for the matchup with a look at where should NBA betting fans should put their money for the Friday night affair.

Nets vs Knicks Betting Tips

These aren’t your Nets from years’ past. Granted, they aren’t world-beaters either, but there’s plenty of promise in BK. Last year they won just 13 road games, and yet they almost swiped one from the Detroit Pistons on opening night, ultimately falling by three points.

But in the process they got a good look at two foundation pieces in center Jarrett Allen (17 points, 10 rebounds, 4 blocks) and wing Caris LeVert (27 points, 4 assists).

They’ll be even healthier on Friday when they get back their top 3-point shooter in Allen Crabbe and their best defender in Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. They’ll essentially be playing at full strength in their home opener.

The Knicks want Kristaps Porzingis back but they sure didn’t need him on Wednesday. Tim Hardaway Jr.’s 31 points and Enes Kanter’s double-double (16 points, 11 rebounds) allowed them to cruise past a woeful Hawks team at home.

They managed 126 points thanks to 12 3-pointers and 31 trips to the line, but also turned it over 15 times. We’ll count their 49-point second quarter as an aberration, not the start of a trend.

Betting the Spread Nets vs Knicks

Is it possible Brooklyn was more impressive in a road loss than the Knicks were in a home win? We like the pieces GM Sean Marks has put together and Kenny Atkinson seems to have found the right lineups and combinations.

Allen and LeVert will be the two best players on the floor tonight in Brooklyn, and as bad as they been recently, they’ve won five of their last six home openers. We like this impressive young bunch to put together another nice showing in front of the Brooklyn faithful. They’ll pounce on New York’s mistakes and win in transition.

Give the points and grab the Nets -4 with 888Sport.

Nets-Knicks Total Betting

The Nets actually shot 49 percent from the field against a decent Detroit defense, yet managed only 100 points. That’ll happen when you shoot 5 of 18 from deep and make just 15 free throws.

Still, 28 assists on 40 made baskets was a promising statistic, and they’ll get Crabbe back for help beyond the arc. Expect a big offensive showing. The same goes for the Knicks. They posted 126 points – albeit against the Hawks – and got double-digit outputs from seven different players.

They’re sharing the load while Porzingis rehabs that knee. Neither team provides much in the way of stout defense, so we’ll take the over at 219.5 with SugarHouse.

Nets vs Knicks Top Prop Bets

All aboard the Jarrett Allen hype train. He somewhat flew under the radar as a rookie but that won’t happen this season. After the season opener double-double he should be in line for another big night against a Knicks frontcourt in Enes Kanter and Lance Thomas. Not exactly a couple of All-NBA Defensive Team candidates.

Ride Allen to have another big night and take over 12.5 on his points at -134 and over 6.5 rebounds at -155 with 888Sport.
