The New York Knicks were one of the biggest surprises in sports betting last season thanks to their sudden climb to the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference. Under head coach Tom Thibodeau, everything coalesced together into a strong season led by Most Improved Player Julius Randle and an enticing young core featuring 2019 No. 2 overall pick R.J. Barrett. Unfortunately for Knicks fans, the fun fizzled out with a first-round exit against the Atlanta Hawks.

Are the NBA odds in the Knicks’ favor to have a repeat performance during the 2021-22 season? Let’s dive into the NBA futures and make some NBA picks on the Knicks’ projected outlook.

Knicks Win-Total Betting

The Line: 41.5 (-110) with PointsBet Sportsbook

The Knicks pushed their chips in with this group during the offseason, re-signing everyone expect veteran wing Reggie Bullock. New York also made a splashy move in free agency signing shooting guard Evan Fournier to a four-year deal. PointsBet and many other betting apps have cooled on the Knicks making a real improvement, settling in with a 41.5 win total projection.

The Bet: If the young cores takes further steps forward, plus Julius Randle doesn’t regress from a fantastic 2020-21 season, I like the Knicks chances of finishing above .500. I would take the Over at PointsBet Sportsbook.

Knicks Division Odds

The Line: +3000 with BetMGM

The Atlantic Division is one of the best in the NBA. With teams like the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics atop the division, it’s a longshot for New York to make a significant push. The Knicks lack the star power and depth to be on the level of Brooklyn and Boston.

The Bet: With +3000 odds on BetMGM Sportsbook, it’s a wise strategy to stay away from this one. The Knicks could be a playoff team, but not a division winner.

Knicks Eastern Conference Odds

The Line: +4000 at DraftKings

New York is a fringe playoff contender, and it shows with their overall Eastern Conference odds on DraftKings. Tied for eighth-best odds with the Indiana Pacers, the Knicks would need to have an unrealistic number of things break their way to make a deep run in postseason play.

The Bet: Unless you’re a Knicks fan, betting on New York making the NBA Finals is a foolish exercise. Stay away from this NBA betting play on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Knicks NBA Title Odds

The Line: +8000 with Caesars Sportsbook

The Knicks are right in the middle NBA title odds at most betting sites. New York has the pieces to make a playoff run, but not one where they can actually push the Eastern Conference’s elite during the postseason.

The Bet: Another easy one to stay away from, even with the long odds presented by Caesars Sportsbook. New York won’t be a real title contender this season.

Best Knicks Player Prop Bets

The Line: Derrick Rose, Sixth Man of the Year, +1600 at FanDuel

Unlike the Knicks futures listed above from other sportsbooks, this one on FanDuel. actually caught my attention. With the third-best odds to win the Sixth Man of the Year award, Derrick Rose certainly qualifies as a legitimate favorite. Trailing only the Utah Jazz’s duo of Jordan Clarkson and Joe Ingles, Rose can pour in the points on a playoff contender to stay within range to secure 6MOY by season’s end.

The Bet: This is a realistic futures bet to lay here involving the Knicks. Rose has been known to score points, and he should do so in bunches for New York throughout this season. That makes him a strong option to bet on to win you some money.
