New York is 26-14 SU and 21-18-1 ATS; it's coming off an 89-86 win at Boston as a 1 point favorite on the 24th.

Carmelo Anthony had 28 points in the defensive battle.

Note though that New York is just 15-16 ATS this year when playing the role of favorite.

Philadelphia is 17-25 SU and 18-24 ATS; it's coming off a 110-102 loss at Milwaukee on the 22nd as a 6.5 point underdog.

Evan Turner led the way with 23 points in the setback.

While he had an "off" day vs. the Bucks with just nine points, a bright spot for the 76ers continues to be the play of Jrue Holiday who is averaging a team high 19 points and nine assists.

Center Spencer Hawes will be called upon here to have another big effort after scoring 21 points and grabbing 12 boards vs. Milwaukee.

Note that Philadelphia is in fact 6-5 ATS this year vs. division opponents.

With a tough game vs. the Hawks tomorrow night, I believe New York gets caught "looking ahead" to that contest. When you throw in the "double revenge factor" from back to back losses that Philadelphia suffered in November in this series, you should definitely consider a second look at the home side in this one!
