The Milwaukee Bucks and New York Knicks are looking to punch their ticket to Las Vegas for the semifinals of the NBA In-Season Tournament. 

Milwaukee took the first meeting between these teams, and I think that gave us some insight on how to bet in the prop market in this game. 

I have two Bucks props and a Knicks prop to consider in this matchup with the Bucks favored to win on Tuesday night.

Knicks vs. Bucks best NBA prop bets today

  • Damian Lillard OVER 25.5 points
  • Jalen Brunson OVER 9.5 rebounds and assists
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo OVER 0.5 3-pointers made

Damian Lillard OVER 25.5 points

Damian Lillard dropped 30 points against the Knicks earlier in the season, and he has cleared this prop in seven of his last 11 contests. 

During that stretch, Dame is averaging 26.3 points per game, and he’s putting up 25.5 per game for the entire 2023-24 season. 

I expect Lillard to get plenty of shots in this matchup, which should feel like a playoff atmosphere. 

Jalen Brunson OVER 9.5 rebounds and assists

I am surprised by this line for Jalen Brunson, who has picked up 10 rebounds and assists in seven of his last eight games. 

While Brunson is averaging 3.7 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game, he had nine rebounds and assists in the loss to the Bucks earlier this season. 

This prop is something I love for Brunson given his minutes, as he’s played 35.5 minutes per game on the season and played nearly 42 minutes in the Knicks’ loss to Milwaukee earlier this season. 

Giannis Antetokounmpo OVER 0.5 3-pointers made

The Knicks seemed to be willing to let Giannis Antetokounmpo shoot in the last matchup between these teams, and he made them pay, hitting 3-of-3 shots from beyond the arc. 

There are only six games this season where Giannis has made a 3, but at +154 odds (at DraftKings), I think he’s worth a shot.
