Betting On Knicks at 76ers - Knicks Head To Philadelphia After Delayed Start To Season

 

Betting On Knicks 76ers – Knicks Head To Philadelphia After Delayed Start To Season

11/04/2012 - Betonline.com - by Craig Parsons





The New York Knicks had their season delayed thanks to the impact of Hurricane Sandy. An extra couple of days to prepare for a Philadelphia 76ers’ team that looks to have improved this year may not be a bad thing. The Knicks will head to Philadelphia this Monday looking to hand the 76ers their first home loss of the season, and many of the storylines centered on New York really haven’t changed. The Knicks head in to another season with Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudamire as the core foundation, and if they can’t manage to capitalize on their potential in 2012-13, it could be their final online sports betting season together.

Stoudamire won’t be available for this game after undergoing knee surgery, which is expected to keep him out 6-8 weeks. The Knicks are already limited as far as scoring up front, and Stoudamire’s absence will force them to rely even more on Kurt Thomas and Rasheed Wallace.

NBA Betting Preview: New York Knicks

Wallace was picked up in the offseason to help bolster the frontcourt behind Thomas, with Marcus Camby once again playing behind Tyson Chandler at the center position. The Knicks are comfortable with that foursome up front, but there are question marks with how limited they will be due to age and relative playing time. Stoudamier will undoubtedly be missed, and while Anthony is an obvious option to pick up the scoring while he is out, New York will also ask more of Ronnie Brewer and Steve Novak in terms of scoring. Point guard Raymond Felton arrives to take the place of Jeremy Lin as the team’s starter, and he put up career-high numbers in his last stint with the Knicks.

NBA Betting Preview: Philadelphia 76ers

Philadelphia is confident after opening the season with a win over Andre Iguodola and the Denver Nuggets, and while the man that they traded for when they moved Iguodola this past offseason didn’t play, Andrew Bynum is expected to make his debut soon. The 76ers certainly didn’t mind him not playing with Spencer Hawes managing 16 points and 12 rebounds off the bench, and they will continue to rely on him as long as Bynum is on the shelf. The up-tempo play from Jrue Holiday, Jason Richardson, and Thaddeus Young certainly paced the offense, and is something Philadelphia will turn to again in this game.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The 76ers have the talent to compete with the best in the Eastern conference this season, and with Stoudamire out for the Knicks, they will look to take advantage of a quick start and push the tempo at home. New York is still good enough to compete for a playoff spot this sports betting season, but they could take some time to get in the groove after having their season delayed due to Hurricane Sandy.

NBA Betting Pick: Philadelphia 76ers
