The 2021-22 NBA season is in full swing. Tuesday's basketball action features a primetime matchup between the Dallas Mavericks and New York Knicks.

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

Nuggets vs Clippers Player Props

1. Julius Randle - Points: Under 19.5 (-110)

Julius Randle has been riding a cold streak from his scoring perspective, averaging just 16.6 points per game over his last five. This game is spelling to be a defensive rout on both sides, considering Dallas and New York rank 29th and 30th, respectively, in pace and Dallas enters with the sixth-best defensive rating in the league. The Mavericks are also without Kristaps Porzingis tonight, which slots Reggie Bullock into a smaller, but more defensive-minded lineup. Porzingis' 104 defensive rating is the worst of his career since his rookie campaign and Bullock has been an upside without Porzingis on the court.

2. Evan Fournier - Made Threes: Over 2.5 (-118)

The Dallas Mavericks may be a defensive-minded team, but it's hard to ignore Evan Fournier's career-high 7.0 three-point attempts per contest this year. He's hitting threes at a 38.6% clip and taken at least 7 three-point attempts in 22 of his 39 games. He's also hit the over on this prop in five of his last seven games.

3. Total Points: Under 204 (-108)

As mentioned before, this game is expected to present a slow, defensive-minded affair. Both teams rank in the bottom two of pace this season, and rank bottom-10 in points scored per game. Better yet, the Mavericks lead the league by hitting the under in 65.8% of their games this season. New York ranks sixth in that trend, hitting the under in 58.5% of their contests. With a couple of important offensive pieces missing on both sides in Kristaps Porzingis and Derrick Rose, this game should crawl to the 200-point mark.
