The 2021-22 NBA season is in full swing. Wednesday's basketball action features a primetime matchup between the New York Knicks and Miami Heat.
Here's three of the best prop bets for Knicks-Heat, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Knicks vs Heat Prop Bets
1. Jimmy Butler - Assists: Over 7.5 (-122)
Jimmy Butler has stepped up as the Heat's primary playmaker with Kyle Lowry out. Butler's hit this over in three of the past four games -- all of which were without Lowry. Going even further, Butler is averaging 8.6 assists in eight Lowry-less contests this season, compared to just 5.1 APG in 21 games with Lowry in the lineup. Butler should have no problem dishing out dimes as the Heat's clear No. 1 option.
2. Julius Randle - Rebounds: Under 8.5 (-102)
Julius Randle's shown he can struggle when facing strong front courts. Randle has failed to this over in two of his past three outings, and both were against teams (the New Orleans Pelicans and Cleveland Cavaliers) with strong big man rotations. Randle faces an even tougher test on Wednesday against Miami. The Heat hold opponents to the fewest RPG in the entire league, thanks to an All-Star center in Bam Adebayo along with strong rebounding wings like Butler and PJ Tucker. There's nothing about Randle's recent play that says he'll rise to the occasion tonight.
3. Bam Adebayo - Points: Over 16.5 (-104)
Adebayo has picked up right where he left off following a length absence. The Heat big man's notched at least 20 points in two of his last three games, shooting a healthy 60.0% from the field and drawing 5.3 free throw attempts per contest. He'll continue to serve as the No. 2 behind Butler with Lowry out, and he now draws a wounded Knicks front court with Mitchell Robinson and Nerlens Noel both tending to injuries. Adebayo should be able to take advantage of this matchup to surpass a modest points total.
