The NBA has blessed us with a solid four game slate to kick off the first Thursday of 2022. 

Here's betJACK's daily NBA betting guide for January 6, 2022.

Boston Celtics @ New York Knicks (7:30 p.m. TNT)

Spread: NYK (-1.5)

Over/Under Total: 207.5 Points

The Celtics (18-19) will travel to New York to attempt to break their five game losing streak against the Knicks (18-19). This will be the third meeting this season between these two teams, with Boston defeating New York last time 114-107.

The Celtics will be without Payton Pritchard (health and safety protocols) and Brodric Thomas (back). For the Knicks, Nerlens Noel (reconditioning) is day-to-day while Kemba Walker (knee) and Derrick Rose (ankle) are both out.

The Warriors (29-8) are coming off the second night of a back-to-back where they were embarrassed by the Dallas Mavericks. Without Zion Williamson, the Pelicans (13-25) have won just five of their last 10 games.
