New York Knicks vs. Indiana Pacers Game 6 Betting Preview

Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Playoff Series between the New York Knicks and Indiana Pacers is set for Friday night. Indiana is trying to keep their season alive with a win, while the Knicks are hoping to win and advance again. 

New York comes into this game with a ton of momentum after rolling to a win in Game 5, but they also have a lot to prove. The Knicks have struggled to win games on the road in this series, including a blowout loss in Game 4. 

Indiana has been a great team on their home floor so far in the postseason, but they have to prove that they can win games on the road. The Pacers will have a great home court advantage in this game, and that has mattered in previous games. 

The Indiana Pacers are 5.5 point betting favorites in this game, and the over/under line is set at 215.5 total points. 

Brunson Unstoppable For Knicks

Jalen Brunson is averaging 33.9 points per game in the playoffs for the Knicks and he has been on a tear of late. Brunson has not played well in Indiana so far in this series, but that is going to change in this game. 

The Knicks have been getting great play from Josh Hart as well, and he is a player that has been able to frustrate the Pacers. Look for the Knicks to play a physical brand of basketball in this game in an attempt to set the tone. 

An extra day of rest will help the Knicks recover as well, and that is something to keep in mind when betting on this game on Friday night. 

Pacers Want to Play Fast

Indiana wants to find a way to wear down the New York Knicks and that is a strategy that has worked for them at times this season. The Pacers want to score more than 110 points in this game, and they have done that in their first two home games. 

Playing fast might be the best strategy for the Pacers, but at some point this team is going to have to defend as well. The Pacers have allowed at least 121 points in their three losses, and that just won’t get the job done. 

Tyrese Haliburton has continued to be a star for this team, but he will need some help to keep the season alive. 

Knicks Close Out Series

The Pacers are a completely different team on their home floor, but they also have plenty to prove in this matchup. New York appeared to figure some things out against Indiana in Game 5, and the Pacers don’t have many answers. 

Stopping Jalen Brunson has been a huge problem for the Pacers all series long, and he is going to be the difference in this matchup as well. New York wants this series to end as soon as possible, and that will have them focused for this matchup. 

Bet on the New York Knicks moneyline as they become the first road team to win a game in this series to end the season for the Pacers
