The New York Knicks are hosting the Los Angeles Lakers at the Madison Square Garden in New York on Monday, April 12, 2021, at 7:30 ET. The Knicks are playoff-bound this season and are sitting on the 8th place of the Eastern conference. They have been struggling a bit lately and are 2-5 in their previous seven matches. The Lakers are still playing without their two superstars but have managed to have a 5-3 record in their previous eight and are fifth in the West.

The Knicks have a 26-27 record and are 31-21-1 against the spread and 21-32 in over/under. In their previous matchup they lost by the Grizzlies at home with a 133-129 score in overtime. Three of their bench players had 19+ points, with RJ Barrett and Immanuel Quickley scoring 20 each. Alec Burks and Derrick Rose followed with 19 points apiece. 

Julius Randle leads the team in scoring with 22.8 ppg, in rebounding with 10.7 and in dimes made with 6. per game. RJ Barrett follows with 17.6 ppg and 5.9 boards per game. 

The Knicks have the best defense in the league, allowing 104.5 ppg. But they have the third-worse offense, scoring 105.4. They shoot with 45.1% from the field and 38.1% from behind the arc. They are 4-0 against the spread in their previous four matches. Over is 3-1 in their previous four matches but had five straight under games before that.

Los Angeles Lakers vs New York Knicks Predictions 4/12/2021

The Lakers have a 33-20 record and are 26-27 against the spread and 19-34 in over/under. In their previous matchup they won the Nets on the road with a 101-126 score. Eight of their players were in double digit scoring, led by newcomer Andre Drummond with 20 points and 11 boards. Dennis Schroder added 19 points on 7-11 shots from the field.  

LeBron James leads the team both in scoring with 25.4 ppg and in dimes made with 7.9, adding 7.9 boards per game, while shooting with 51.3% from the field. Anthony Davis follows with 22.5 ppg and 8.4 boards per game. Both are still out with injuries. 

The Lakers have the second-best defense in the league, allowing 105.8 ppg and they score 110.2 ppg. They shoot with 47.6% from the field and 35.7% from behind the arc. They are 4-1 against the spread in their previous five games. Their previous three matches have been over the total but their previous six have been under.  

Lakers won both matchups against the Knicks last year. At home with a 117-87 score and on the road with 92-100. New York is 3-1 against the spread in their previous four matchups and 6-3 in their last nine. Their last two matchups have been under the line but the previous six have been over. The Knicks are 15-10 at home, while the Lakers are 17-9 on the road. I expect the over/under line to be too low today and picking the over here would be a good option, as both teams are trending that way.
