The New York Knicks will head to Barclays Center on Tuesday to face the Brooklyn Nets

New York and Brooklyn played three times in the 2020-21 season, with each game decided by seven or fewer points. Still, WynnBET has New York as a 7.0-point underdog in this matchup

When looking at the marquee matchups of the night, I love dipping my toes in the player prop waters to make the action even more exciting. Here’s what I’m eyeing for Knicks-Nets on Tuesday: 

Best Prop Bets for Knicks vs. Nets

  • Patty Mills OVER 12.5 Points (-125)
  • Julius Randle to Record a Double-Double (+100)
  • Kevin Durant OVER 28.5 Points (-125)

Patty Mills OVER 12.5 Points (-125)

Patty Mills has been fantastic with Joe Harris (ankle surgery) out of the lineup, averaging 16.7 points per game while shooting 56.3 percent from the field and 52.9 percent from 3 since entering the starting lineup on Nov. 16. 

Mills has gone over this number in five of his last seven games, and I think he finds success against a Knicks team that is 26th in the NBA in opponent 3-pointers made this season. 

Julius Randle to Record a Double-Double (+100)

Julius Randle has failed to score 10 points in each of his last two games, but he is still averaging 19.2 points and 10.2 rebounds per game on the season. 

Randle’s shooting has regressed from his All-Star season a year ago, but he is still the Knicks’ best player and should get back to his double-double ways sooner rather than later. Randle has 11 double-doubles on the season, and he averaged 26.0 points, 9.0 assists and 13.5 rebounds in his two games in Barclays Center last season. 

Kevin Durant OVER 28.5 Points (-125)

Kevin Durant played in just one of the three matchups between these two teams last season, dropping 26 points. 

You know that the New York fans are going to be booing Durant for choosing Brooklyn over the Knicks, and I think he is going to show them what they are missing on Tuesday. 

Durant is averaging 28.6 points per game and the Knicks could be without their best perimeter defender in RJ Barrett (questionable) in tonight’s game.
