3 Best Prop Bets for Knicks vs Heat NBA Playoffs Game 6 on May 12 (RJ Barrett's Hot Streak Continues)


Friday's NBA Playoffs slate includes an exciting Game 6 matchup between the New York Knicks and Miami Heat. The Knicks answered the call on Wednesday night and kept their season alive with a Game 5 win at Madison Square Garden. Now the two teams head back down to Miami for Game 6 on Friday night.

Here are three of the best prop bets for Heat-Knicks Game 6, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Knicks vs Heat Game 6 Player Props

1. Jalen Brunson Over 6.5 Assists (-132)

Jalen Brunson has been what the Knicks have needed and more all season, especially throughout this series. He has eclipsed this over in four of the series' five games thus far, topping out with 11 assists in Game 4. Brunson scoring 30+ points every game almost seems like a given at this point, but he'll need to distribute as well to make sure New York's offense succeeds, especially with Miami focusing much of its defensive efforts on trying to stop him.

2. Tri-Bet: Either 8 Points or Less (+100)

Both the Heat and the Knicks are built on grit and toughness, and with both of them ready for war in Game 6, expect this to be a hard-nosed battle. These teams have gone back and forth all series, and three of the five games so far were settled by eight points or less. One of the two that wasn't was Game 5, which the Knicks won by 9. This allows you to just bet on a close game happening, giving you a potential 16-point margin to work with, rather than betting the spread or moneyline for one side.

3. RJ Barrett 3+ Made Threes (+200)

The Knicks have had plenty of shooting woes this series, especially from 3-point range. It's one of the main reasons they find themselves down 3-2 entering Game 6. That hasn't stopped RJ Barrett, though. The Knicks' 22-year-old guard is enjoying one of the best stretches of his young career, and it's coming at the best time for New York. Barrett has knocked down at least three 3-pointers in three of the five games in this series, including Games 4 and 5. Bank on his shooting streak to continue in Game 6 with the Knicks' season on the line.
