The 2021 NBA season is in full swing. Friday's basketball action features a primetime matchup between the New York Knicks and Milwaukee Bucks.

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

Knicks vs Bucks Best Prop Bets

1. Julius Randle - Rebounds: Over 8.5 (-130)

The New York Knicks' effort on the boards continues to be cemented by their star player Julius Randle. The eighth-year pro has brought down at least 9 rebounds in six of his last seven games and has a great shot to do so once again on Friday night. The Bucks are allowing an opponent defensive rebounding percentage of 79.5% (No. 22 in NBA) and are still missing Brook Lopez due to an injury. That leaves Milwaukee with few answers for the big man. With a spread set at just 4 points, this game is going to be close and Randle will have a lot of opportunities to clear this number.

2. Pat Connaughton - Points: Over 9.5 (-110)

Finding the right prop bets for the Bucks can be tough given the depth issues currently caused by a number of injuries. That's why it's smart to look at a role player like Pat Connaughton. Connaughton is averaging 29.9 minutes played this season, which is a far greater number than the mark of 22.8 he averaged last year. He is coming off his most efficient game of the season in which he dropped 16 points and shot 6-for-8 from the field (4-for-5 from 3). The Knicks are giving up the ninth-most points per game in the NBA (110.4) and Connaughton has cashed the over on this prop in four of his last eight games played.

3. Grayson Allen - Made Threes: Over 2.5 (+106)

Another role player to keep an eye on is Grayson Allen. The first-year Buck has turned into a go-to outside shooter for this team averaging 13.0 points per game with a 36.8% shooting percentage from 3-point land. He has posted at least three 3-pointers four of his last five games while attempting a total of 42 shots from beyond the arc during that span. The consistent volume of shots he is putting up combined with the fact that the Knicks are allowing an opponent 3-point shooting percentage of 34.3% (No. 17 in NBA) makes this a prop bet worth targeting.
