Timberwolves-Knicks Prop Bets Tonight

3. Karl-Anthony Towns - Points: Over 23.5 (-106)

Minnesota's Karl-Anthony Towns is quietly assembling an All-Star season that no one seems to be talking about. The seventh-year pro is putting up 24.6 points per game on the year to go along with 9.3 rebounds and 3.6 assists. Towns has poured in at least 24 on the score sheet in each of his last four games and is averaging a healthy 19.5 field goals attempted during that span. The Knicks have been destroyed by athletic big men this season and are playing on the second night of a back-to-back. Look for Towns to take advantage of a matchup against Julius Randle and ball out on Tuesday night.

2. Evan Fournier - Made Threes: Over 2.5 (-122)

Minnesota presents as a tough matchup for any of the Knicks' top scorers. That is why looking at volume here is especially important. Guard Evan Fournier is attempting a whopping 6.9 three-pointers per game and sinking them at a rate of 39.1%. He has also nailed at least three shots from beyond the arc in three of his last five games. New York is going to try and slow this game down, but Minnesota plays at the third-fastest pace in the NBA. More possessions means more opportunities for Fournier to shoot the ball. After all, Minnesota allows 38.0 points per game from three-point range (No. 18 in NBA).

1. Jarred Vanderbilt - Rebounds: Over 8.5 (-118)

The Timberwolves have benefitted quite a lot from Jarred Vanderbilt's ability to pull down rebounds. The former Kentucky big man has posted at least 9 rebounds in six of his last eight games and has hit the double-digit mark five times since the start of 2022. The main key here is minutes played. Vanderbilt has hit the over on this prop each of the last four times he has played at least 30 minutes. With a spread set at just 3 points, this one is expected to be close. Vanderbilt should have no trouble crashing the boards against a Knicks team that shoots just 43.7% from the field (No. 26 in NBA).
