Pelicans vs Knicks NBA Prediction (2/25/2023)

Welcome to our professional NBA analysis for the upcoming New Orleans Pelicans vs. New York Knicks game. In this post, we’ll examine the pre-game information and critical injuries and provide our prediction on who we think will win the game based on the data presented. We’ll also give our opinions on the Moneyline, Against the Spread, and OVER/UNDER bets for the game. So, let’s dive into the pre-game information.

Injury List

Injuries are always a significant factor in any game, and the Pelicans have two notable absences. Dyson Daniels, who is dealing with an ankle injury, is doubtful for the game, according to Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans’ official website. In addition, Zion Williamson, who has been out since February 12th with a hamstring injury, has encountered a delay in his recovery and will be out for several additional weeks, according to Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune. 

On the other hand, the Knicks have no significant injuries to report. 

The latest information can be found on the NBA’s official injury report.


Based on the data presented, the New Orleans Pelicans will win against the New York Knicks with a final score of 115-111. While the Knicks have won four games in a row and covered three consecutive games, the Pelicans have shown they can compete against the spread, with a recent record of 4-3 ATS. The Pelicans are also a challenge for the Knicks with their ability to make plays and size.


This season, the Knicks haven’t performed well at Madison Square Garden, where they have a home record of 16-15, ranking sixth in the NBA for the worst home win rate. The Knicks are just 12-16-3 Underdogs at home. On the other hand, the Pelicans are big enough to compete with Mitchell Robinson of the Knicks, and with Jonas Valanciunas controlling the paint with a game average of 14.4 points and 9.8 boards, they pose a threat to the Knicks. Therefore, we believe the PELICANS (+135) are an excellent bet to win the game outright.

Against The Spread

While we have a bias for the Pelicans to win handily, taking the 3.5 points on the road might be just as brilliant. Therefore, the PELICANS +3.5 (-115) is our pick for the game Against the Spread.


The Over/Under for this game is predicted to be 223.5, and we believe that the game will go OVER the total. In the last ten games, the Over is 5-5 for the Pelicans; in the previous five games, it’s 3-2 for the Knicks. Additionally, the Pelicans are in eighth place in offensive rebounding percentage, while the Knicks are in seventeenth place. Look for the Pelicans to maintain the speed since they are currently ranked 15th in pace.


That concludes our New Orleans Pelicans vs. New York Knicks game analysis. We predict that the Pelicans will win the game outright, covering the spread and with the match going OVER the total.
