After extending their winning streak to seven games Tuesday night, the New York Knicks (32-27) will be back on their home floor Wednesday as the Atlanta Hawks (32-26) come to town. Tip-off at Madison Square Garden will be at 8 p.m. ET. Below, we analyze the Hawks-Knicks odds and lines, with NBA picks and predictions.
The Hawks have been playing some great basketball lately, winning eight of their last 10 games, including their last two against the Indiana Pacers and Orlando Magic. They sit fourth in the Eastern Conference, a half-game ahead of the Knicks. Atlanta has held up well on the road this season, too, going 16-15 away from home.
The Knicks have also won eight of their last 10 contests, helped by their current seven-game winning streak to push them five games above .500. Their most recent win was by 12 points over the Charlotte Hornets Tuesday night, a game in which they were favored by 5 points.
New York beat Charlotte despite PF Julius Randle scoring only 16 points, well below his season average of 23.6 points per game.

Hawks at Knicks: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Knicks 112, Hawks 108
Money line (ML)
The Knicks continue to play well on both sides of the ball, holding five of their last 10 opponents to 101 or fewer points.
They’ve won seven straight and though the Hawks are playing well, too, New York’s defense will give them fits.
I like the KNICKS (+105) to win straight up tonight.

Against the spread (ATS)
The Knicks are short underdogs at home. It’s the seventh time in their last 11 games they’ve been spotted points.
They’ve covered the spread in 10 straight games, and in their last 10 meetings with the Hawks, the Knicks are 7-2-1 ATS.
Take the KNICKS +1.5 (-110) to cover.
The total had gone Over in each of the Knicks’ last four games before the Under hit Tuesday . For the Hawks, the Under is 4-1 in their last five games.
So long as Atlanta isn’t without all of its aforementioned injured players, the OVER 218.5 (-110) looks good.
