Back the Under on Christmas Day

Trae Young’s return to Madison Square Garden will have to wait, because Atlanta Hawks Star guard points are among the Hawks in the league’s health and safety protocols.

However, the Hawks will take over New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden after they beat the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday night.

Atlanta’s attack has struggled without Young, but they will face a Knicks team that allowed the Washington Wizards to shoot 56% from the field without Bradley Beal on Thursday.

Total:

If you do anything you do this Christmas, it will fade the Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

New York is just 5-12 to the spread at MSG this season, one of the worst records in the NBA, and it has struggled a lot defensively lately.

The Knicks are 23rd in the NBA in defensive ratings and are still dealing with a number of players following the league’s health and safety regulations and will be without Derrick Rose (ankle surgery) for the next two months.

While I think Hawks +5 is a great bet, my best bet has to do with the total on this game.

Our Ben Heisler pointed out that underlining on Christmas Day in the NBA it’s been 35-20-1 since 2005, and for games starting from midday to 5:30 p.m. EST, the underweight is 26-9 ATS.

The Knicks hit a lower percentage in 53.1% of their games this season, and with Young in the last two, Atlanta has scored just 98 points in each game.

New York is ranked 26th in the NBA for speed, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the Knicks tried to slow things down, to win.

Pick: Knicks-Hawks BELOW 213 (-110)
