The New York Knicks and Atlanta Hawks face off to the second time this season, and there are plenty of ways to go in the prop market for this matchup.
New York would love to get back in the win column on this road trip after losing to Boston.
RJ Barrett and Julius Randle are my two favorite Knicks to wager on in this matchup, but Barrett is questionable for this game after missing Monday’s contest with migraines. I also have a prop for a young Atlanta forward.

Knicks vs. Hawks best NBA prop bets today
- RJ Barrett OVER 20.5 points
- Jalen Johnson OVER 7.5 rebounds
- Julius Randle OVER 9.5 rebounds
RJ Barrett OVER 20.5 points
Barrett is questionable for this game after he missed Monday’s matchup against Boston with a migraine.
However, if he does play, he should easily clear this points prop against an Atlanta team that loves to push the pace (No. 2 in the NBA).
Barrett had 26 points in the first meeting against Atlanta, and he’s averaging 22.6 points per game and shooting 50.0 percent from 3.
As long as RJ is healthy, he’s a solid bet to get into the 20s scoring the ball.
Jalen Johnson OVER 7.5 rebounds
Young forward Jalen Johnson has really been solid for the Hawks – grabbing nine or more rebounds in five games.
Johnson has slid into John Collins role as a four stretching power forward, and he’s grabbed at least seven boards in seven games this season.
I think Johnson could have a big game on the glass against a New York team that is 29th in the league in effective field goal percentage.
Julius Randle OVER 9.5 rebounds
Randle has not been consistent shooting the ball, but he’s been solid on the glass, grabbing 10 or more rebounds in seven games this season.
He grabbed 12 boards against the Hawks in the first meeting between these teams this season, and Randle has also grabbed at least nine boards in eight of his 10 games.
We know Randle will play plenty of minutes – especially if this is a close game – so I don’t mind taking him to reach double-digit boards again on Wednesday.
