The New York Knicks take on the Milwaukee Bucks in the quarterfinals of the NBA in-season tournament on Tuesday, December 5. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET from Fiserv Forum. Let’s take a look at some of the top prop bets available for this matchup.
Jalen Brunson over 5.5 assists (-135)
The line isn’t great here, but Brunson has been an assist machine as of late. He has averaged 7.75 assists over his last four games, and this one should be a lock against a below-average Milwaukee defense.
Damian Lillard over 4.5 rebounds (+114)
Lillard grabbed just four rebounds in these two teams’ previous matchup this season, but has averaged 5.1 rebounds per game over his last seven games. He grabbed six boards in the Bucks’ latest win over Atlanta.
Jalen Brunson to score more points than Giannis Antetokounpmo (+180)
This is certainly the prop bet with the longest odds here, but it’s not as crazy as you might think upon first glance. The last time these two teams met, Brunson hung 45 points on the Bucks, and Antetokounmpo had just 22. The Knicks defense will be focusing on limiting the big man which will force him to kick the ball out more often, while Brunson won’t be facing as much adversity from the Bucks defense.
