Timberwolves at Knicks (+3) - O/U 214

The Knicks have covered and won outright in three of their last four games, while Minnesota has failed to cover in two of the last three.

The bigger trend to keep an eye on with the Knicks though has been their defense of late. They're 6-4 SU over their last 10 games, holding opponents to just 98.4 points per game over that stretch. This is what the Knicks have had their success because of -- stopping other teams from scoring. That's what got this team to the playoffs last year, and it's something that they have to keep up the rest of the way. They're also holding opponents to 34-percent shooting from 3 over their last 10 games as well.

Minnesota won't be an easy task for the Knicks, though, with the Timberwolves averaging 114.7 points a game over their own 10-game stretch and Karl-Anthony Towns averaging 25.5 points per game in six games so far this month.

Pistons (+15) at Warriors - O/U 218.5

The Pistons are, well, the Pistons. It's been a rough year, to say the least. They're now 3-18 SU on the road and 5-20 SU against teams over .500.

It's obviously a much different story for the Warriors, who are 18-3 SU at home and 14-6-1 ATS on their home court as well. Golden State has been in a bit of a rough patch lately, going just 4-6 SU over their last 10 and barely getting over 104 points per game while giving up just as many to their opponents in this stretch.

There looks to be good news on the injury front for the Warriors, who don't have Steph Curry listed after he missed the game Sunday against the Timberwolves with right hand soreness. The Warriors won the last matchup on Nov. 20 led by Jordan Poole's 32 points.
