New York Knicks @ San Antonio Spurs

New York has gone under in each of their previous 5 played and those outings had just 203.3 points tallied per game. As a matter of fact, those contests stayed under by an enormous 21.1 points per occurrence.
Additionally, New York has witnessed 9 of its last 10 away games staying under when there’s been a total of 211.0 or greater. There was a mere 208.4 points scored per game during those outings.
The Knicks have struggled mightily with their offensive production thru its previous 4 games. During that span, New York scored 98 points or fewer in all instances.
The Spurs are a substantial 13.5-point favorite on Friday. San Antonio has gone under in 5 straight games in which they were a favorite. The Spurs allowed 105 points or less in each of those cases. Those contests stayed under by an ample average of 14.8 points per game.
This game squarely points toward a low scoring affair. One of my NBA totals picks on Friday 3/15 will concur with that statement.
Pick: Under 215.5
