NBA Odds: Prop Bets for Knicks vs. Timberwolves game
This season, RJ Barrett has played in eight of New York’s 13 games. In the time he’s played, the 23-year-old has been averaging a career-high (21.6) points and (3.1) assists per game. Barrett is one of two players who average 20+ points per game this season. The other is PG Jalen Brunson. Additionally, Barrett’s (.467) three-point percentage is far and away the best of his career. He would love to average over 40 percent from beyond the arc this season.
Tonight, his O/U for points is set at (18.5) vs. Minnesota. In his eight games played this season, Barrett has gone over (18.5) points five times. His overall field-goal percentage is the best of his five-year career thus far. New York would love to see Barrett work his way toward averaging 25+ points per game like they know he can.
Veteran PG Mike Conley is currently in his 17th professional season. The 36-year-old is in his second year with the Timberwolves. Conley has started in all 36 games he’s played for Minnesota. He’s started in all 12 of their games to start the 2023-24 season. His (5.1) assists per game lead the Timberwolves.
Conley’s O/U for assists is set at (5.5) vs. the Knicks. He’s gone over that number in five of his 12 games played this season. The veteran PG is still a reliable three-point shooter, making (.423) percent of his threes in 2023-24. Minnesota will host the Knicks tonight and will look to end their three-game win streak.
Leading the Knicks in scoring this season is PG Jalen Brunson with (24.2) per game. The 27-year-old has been an elite player for New York since joining the team last season. Many thought that he was snubbed of an all-star selection in 2022-23. Brunson has carried his momentum for the FIBA World Cup into his 2023-24 campaign and is playing at a high level.
His (.477) three-point percentage is the best of his career. However, he’s only played 13 games this season, but that number is still remarkably high. Tonight, his O/U for points, rebounds, and assists are set at (31.5) vs. the Timberwolves. Brunson has gone over that number in seven of his 13 games played in 2023-24.
