It is a light slate in the NBA tonight as there are only two games today. However, that does not mean that we are not going to find the best props of the night.
Well, luckily for you, I have found the three-best props of the night. Tonight's slate will only feature the Minnesota Timberwolves heading to New York to take on the Knicks, and the Detriot Pistons facing the Golden State Warriors.
My advice to all you gamblers out there is to never be deterred from a light slate in any sport. There will always be value on the board, and for tonight's NBA action, there is a ton of value.
We would love for you to tail our picks, if you do so, please always remember to gamble responsibly.
Let's find some winners.
*Odds via FanDuel Sportsbook as of Tuesday at 12:30 pm PST.
Minnesota Timberwolves at New York Knicks
Karl-Anthony Towns Over 32.5 Points + Rebounds (-106)
To start the season, Karl-Anthony Towns could not find any sort of groove on the offensive side of the court, but he was still putting up good numbers. In December, he started to find his footing as he averaged 26.7 points and 9.4 rebounds in his nine games played.
He had a long stint on the COVID list, but since he came back, he is putting up 25.5 points and 10.2 rebounds per game. Tonight, he will go up against a Knicks defense that is pretty weak in the paint. Mitchell Robinson leaves a little to be desired for the Knicks down low.
Towns is also one of the best shooting big-man not only this season but of all time. He is currently shooting 41% from deep this season and has his best shooting percentage since 2018-2019.
Julius Randle Over 1.5 Three-Pointers Made (-164)
The value for this prop is not the best, but Julius Randle is starting to become a reliable threat from deep. His three-point shooting percentage is down from last season, and over his seven games, he is averaging 1.6 threes made and six attempts per game. However, the amount of threes he has been shooting lately makes this prop favorable. When he is shooting at least six threes per game, he has hit this number in 17 out of 22 games.
The Knicks play at the slowest pace in the entire NBA, however, they shoot 36.3 three-pointers per game, which is the 11th-most in the NBA. New York is also eighth in three-point shooting percentage (36%).
Based on the number of threes Randle has been shooting as of late, he should easily hit this number, especially since the Timberwolves are ranked 25th in opponents' three-pointers allowed per game (37.6).
Detroit Pistons at Golden State Warriors
Isaiah Stewart Under 15.5 Points + Rebounds (-128)
Before trying to fight LeBron James, Isaiah Stewart was starting to blossom into a pretty good player for the Pistons. Even after he came back from suspension, again, for trying to fistfight LeBron James, he was playing some really good ball.
However, he landed on the COVID list, and since he came back earlier this month, he has struggled, and his minutes are starting to decrease. It may be he is still not up to game conditioning, but his lack of court-time is concerning.
Since coming back, he is only on the court for 21.2 minutes per game. In those games, he is only putting up 5.8 points and 6.0 rebounds per game. Stewart has only hit this number once since coming back from the COVID list, and he will go up against a fully healthy Warriors team.
The Pistons will have to play small unless they want to get run off the court by Steph Curry and company. Even if Stewart is a big part of the game plan, they will probably get mashed by Golden State.
