The 2021 NBA season is in full swing. Tuesday's basketball action features a primetime matchup between the Golden State Warriors and New York Knicks.

Here's three of the best prop bets for Warriors-Knicks, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Warriors vs Knicks Best Prop Bets

1. Julius Randle - Points: Under 20.5 (-104)

It's safe to say that All-Star forward Julius Randle is going through a bit of a cold streak. He has scored fewer than 21 points in each of his last four games and is shooting 35.4% from the floor during that span (17-for-48). This does not line up to be the night he bounces back given the Warriors have posted the best defensive rating (98.3) in the NBA. They are only allowing 100.4 points per game (No. 1 in NBA) and routinely find ways to shut down their opponent's best players. Don't back Randle to light up the score sheet tonight.

2. Alec Burks - Rebounds: Under 5.5 (-122)

The Warriors have become a defensive powerhouse this season and that includes on the boards. Golden State is allowing the fourth-fewest opponent total rebounds per game (50.6) as well as an opponent defensive rebounding percentage of 76.6% (No. 12 in NBA). That does not bode well for Knicks' role player Alec Burks. Burks has topped five rebounds in just one of his last four games played and is guarding out along the perimeter more often. That leaves little upside for the 30-year-old to cash the over on this prop Tuesday night.

3. 1st Quarter Spread: Golden State Warriors -1.5 (-112)

This one comes down to one simple fact. The Knicks do not come out of the gate hot when playing in Madison Square Garden this season. In fact, New York is a league-worst 2-12 against the spread (ATS) in the first quarter of home games. It's also important to remember the meaning of this game. Steph Curry is about to break Ray Allen's all-time three-point record and the Warriors are going to be motivated to make a statement. Keep in mind Golden State averages the most first quarter points of any team in the NBA (29.1), while New York averages the sixth-fewest (25.5).
