Knicks live betting

Whether the Knicks will be competitive in any given game is anybody’s guess. That’s one reason why the live Knicks betting might be more crucial to Knicks bettors than almost anything else.

NJ online sportsbooks offer live betting on every NBA game. That allows you to bet on or against the Knicks at live odds that change with the action on the court. It also allows for quarter, half, and even more in-game props betting at odds that are adjusted with just about every basket.

You can use the live betting markets to hedge pregame bets, but perhaps more importantly, you can’t wait to see what Knicks team shows up before you bet on or against them.

The speed at which live betting happens makes it perfectly suited for betting with mobile apps, where you can get down bets fast before the game’s live odds change again. Yet another reason why live Knicks betting with your favorite NJ online and mobile sportsbook app might be a Knicks fan’s best bet.

Knicks betting lines explained

The Knicks have become a top squad in the Eastern Conference. That means a lot of the Knick game lines at NJ online sportsbooks will look something like this:

  • NYK       -3.5 (-110)        -175          U 203.5 (-110)
  • TOR      +3.5 (-110)       +155          O 203.5 (-110)

Here’s a quick guide to reading these Knick lines:

  • The first number is the spread with the odds in brackets. Here, the Knicks need to win by four or more, but the Raptors can win or lose by three or less. Both bets will get you $100, plus your bet back, for every $110 you bet.
  • The second number is the moneyline. Bet on the underdog Raptors and if they win, you’ll win $155, plus your bet back, for every $100 you bet. Bet on the favorite Knicks and if they win, you’ll win $100, plus your bet back, for every $175 you bet.
  • The third number is the totals line with the odds in brackets. Bet that the total combined score will be over or under 203.5, and if you’re right, you’ll win $100, plus your bet back, for every $110 you bet.

Knicks Vegas odds vs. online odds

You’re bound to hear talk about Vegas odds and lines on Knicks games quite a bit. That’s because Vegas had odds and lines on Knicks games long before anyone else did. That said, Knicks game odds still open up the same at most Vegas sportsbooks as they at NJ online sportsbooks. Although, they may not end up the same by game time. Sportsbooks move lines when there’s more betting on one side or the other.

Because the Knicks are a local team, it’s a good bet more money is bet on Knicks games at NJ online and mobile sportsbooks than Las Vegas sportsbooks. That means there’s a bigger chance NJ online and mobile sportsbooks will make more money on one side than the other and be forced to move the line.

New York Knicks team history

The New York Knicks were established in 1946 and were a founding member of the Basketball Association of America, which became the NBA in 1949. The Knicks made three straight NBA Finals starting in 1950 but lost them all.

Coach Red Holzman helped the team win the NBA Championship in 1970 and 1973, as did stars Willis Reed and Earl “The Pearl” Monroe. The Knicks drafted center Patrick Ewing in 1985 and were highly competitive for the next decade-plus. They made the 1993–94 NBA Finals, the year Michael Jordan went to play baseball, but lost to the Houston Rockets.

The Knicks also went to the 1998-99 NBA Finals but lost to the San Antonio Spurs. They went as far as the Eastern Conference Finals the next season. Prior to the most recent season, the Knicks’ best finish since then was in 2012-13 when they made it to the Conference Semifinals behind superstar Carmelo Anthony.

Finally in 2023-24 behind Jalen Brunson the Knicks again tasted playoff success with their best season in years, making it to the Eastern Conference semifinals before falling to the Indiana Pacers in a thrilling seven-game series.

NY Knicks FAQ

James L. Dolan has essentially owned the New York Knicks for the past 20 years.

In 1977, Gulf and Western Industries bought Madison Square Garden Company and its holdings, which included the Knicks. A decade later Gulf and Western became Paramount Communications. Viacom bought Paramount in 1994 and sold the MSG/Knicks side of things to Cablevision and ITT Corporation.

Charles Dolan, James’ father, was Cablevision’s founder. James was named CEO in 1995. Cablevision bought out ITT Corporation in 1997 giving the Dolans full ownership of the Knicks. Two years later, Dolan was named MSG chairman and the Knicks’s new boss. They made the NBA Finals in his first year and have been terrible ever since.

Knicks tickets cost as little as $22. However, the average ticket price is $82 and courtside seats at MSG might cost anywhere from $2,650 to $5,600.

Most celebrities don’t pay for the courtside seats at MSG. Instead, they appear on the broadcast or scoreboard at some point, helping promote the Knicks and the game.

The Knicks have retired nine jersey numbers, including:

#10 Walt Frazier
#12 Dick Barnett
#15 Earl Monroe
#15 Dick McGuire
#19 Willis Reed
#22 Dave Debusschere
#24 Bill Bradley
#33 Patrick Ewing
#613 Red Holzman (wins)

In late 2023, Forbes estimated the New York Knicks franchise to be worth approximately $6.6 billion.
