New York Knicks vs. Charlotte Hornets 1/29/24 Betting Picks
NBA no-cost picks clearly favor the New York Knicks as a favorite based on recent form and overall record, winning games convincingly while excelling against spread betting. However, LaMelo Ball-led Charlotte Hornets have the ability to cause an upset.
Given New York Knicks’ history of low-scoring games, it may be beneficial to lean toward betting under for both over/under and point spread markets. Knicks might hold an edge against this point spread bet but keep an eye out on odds released to gain more precise betting options.
Conclusion While the Knicks may be seen as favorites, LaMelo Ball of the Hornets should not be underestimated in this game where anything could happen and your bets should be carefully considered before placing them. Enjoy your bets, have fun in this exciting matchup, and good luck with them!
