New York Knicks vs. Indiana Pacers Game 4: Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

This series in the NBA Eastern Conference Semifinals shifted to Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on Thursday night, and the Indiana Pacers were able to avoid going down 3-0 in the series against the New York Knicks with a much-needed win in Game 3.

The Pacers will now look to even things up in Game 4 on Saturday night.

New York Knicks vs. Indiana Pacers Game 4 betting picks and predictions

New York Knicks +6.0 (-110)

It’s been a battle of attrition for the Knicks - despite taking a 2-0 lead in the series - with injuries becoming a significant concern.

Frankly, they already were, as star Julius Randle has been out for quite some time, and Mitch Robinson was already playing on a surgically repaired ankle.

Following Game 2, New York sustained injuries to both Jalen Brunson and OG Anunoby, with the latter missing Game 3.

Despite all of that, the Knicks were able to fight through injuries to earn the #2 seed in the Eastern Conference and get them to this point in the postseason.

In other words, they are a relentless bunch, and if not for a miracle 31-foot three-point shot by Indiana's Andrew Nembhard in Game 3, they would have been going for the sweep tonight. So, having them as clear underdogs yet again is our preferred approach for Game 4.

They had no issues covering the spread in Game 3, and they also did in the game prior where they were installed as favorites.

It certainly isn’t going to be an easy task to finish off this series, but Jalen Brunson has proven that he is one of the true superstars of the NBA.

Looking at other options, it’s worth noting that Indiana has led at the half in all three games thus far, and two of three have gone over the total, but New York +6.0 looks the best bet.

Isaiah Hartenstein over 9.5 rebounds (-130)

For yet another approach to the game, we also have a pick in the player props market. In that regard, we’re focused on New York’s Isaiah Hartenstein. The center has had a great postseason thus far, which is not something Knicks fans thought they would be saying at this point.

However, the aforementioned injuries to Julius Randle long ago and the recent one to Mitch Robinson have put him into an increased role.

After a 12-rebound performance in Game 2, we expect Hartenstein to bounce back from just eight rebounds in Game 3.

It also doesn’t hurt that this series presents a great matchup for him. The Pacers have been successful this season primarily due to their high-paced, high-scoring offense. Their paint presence is almost non-existent, and Myles Turner’s numbers illustrate that.

Despite being the team’s center, he didn’t even lead the squad in rebounds per game, as he averaged fewer than seven per game during the season.

It’s also important to remember that OG Anunoby may yet again be unavailable for New York, putting even more responsibility on Hartenstein. Therefore, we’re going to target the Knicks center to pull down double-digit rebounds.
