The New York Knicks and the Milwaukee Bucks will meet for the final time this season. Right now, the Bucks are winning the season series 2-1. Both teams are struggling a little bit, but there is still potential for a great game.

The Bucks are a 9-point favorite against the spread and a -400 moneyline favorite. If you want more value on this game, check out these props.

3 Best Prop Bets For Knicks vs. Bucks

  • UNDER 216.5 Points (-110)
  • Julius Randle UNDER 8.5 Rebounds (-115)
  • Khris Middleton OVER 5.5 Rebounds (+100)

UNDER 216.5 Points (-110)

The games between the Knicks and Bucks this season have all gone pretty much the same way. They’ve all been under 217 points and the difference between the highest scoring game and the lowest scoring game is 3 points. It’s like these games are following a script. If today is like the other three games, then the under is the way to go. Over the last 10 games, the Knicks have been the third worst offense in the league and the Bucks have been creeping down to the bottom third. I would be shocked if a track meet broke out in today’s game so I’m going with the  under. 

Julius Randle UNDER 8.5 Rebounds (-115)

Randle has been in a slump on the boards. He’s missed this line in three of his last four games. He’s played under 30 minutes in two of those games, but with the Bucks coming into town, there may not be a lot of rebounds to go around. He’s also missed this line once again the Bucks this season. 

The key for him to hit the under is for the Bucks to limit his offensive rebounds. Milwaukee is the best defensive rebounding team in the league, which gives me hope the Bucks can keep Randle in check.

Khris Middleton OVER 5.5 Rebounds (+100)

Middleton isn’t the greatest rebounder in the league, but he has been hitting this mark pretty consistently. He’s hit the over on this line in seven of his last 10 games. Like I said earlier, the Bucks are one of the best defensive rebounding teams in the league. With the Knicks struggling on offense right now, there will be rebounds to go around. The plus odds don’t hurt either on the value of this prop.
