The New York Knicks are in the fourth game of their West Coast trip, and they need to bounce back from what was an awful performance against the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night.

The Knicks and Julius Randle take on LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers, and there are several ways to bet on this game from a prop perspective. 

I have a few player props for the Knicks that I’m looking to attack, especially with Tom Thibodeau’s rotation change to start Donte DiVincenzo. 

Let’s break down the props for Monday’s game:

Knicks vs. Lakers best NBA prop bets

  • Julius Randle OVER 22.5 points
  • Donte DiVincenzo OVER 1.5 3-pointers made
  • Josh Hart OVER 7.5 rebounds and assists

Julius Randle OVER 22.5 points

Julius Randle thrives against the Lakers (the team that drafted him) in his career.

He averages 25.1 points, 9.2 rebounds and 4.3 assists in 12 games against Los Angeles, clearing this prop in five of his last six games against L.A. 

Randle has been shooting the ball better since his slow start to the season, clearing 22.5 points in seven of his last 10 games. 

I expect him to once again be heavily involved on offense for the Knicks. 

Donte DiVincenzo OVER 1.5 3-pointers made

Since entering the starting lineup, DiVincenzo has made multiple shots from beyond the arc in three of five games, including drilling five from beyond the arc on Saturdy.

The Knicks guard is getting more chances from deep, taking at least four shots from 3 in six of his last nine games. 

This prop is juiced heavily to the OVER, but I don’t mind it given DiVincenzo’s hot stretch. He’s shooting 50.0 percent from 3 over his last five games and 44.2 percent on the season. 

Josh Hart OVER 7.5 rebounds and assists

This is a prime bounce-back spot for Josh Hart against, like Randle, his former team. 

Hart was ejected from the Knicks’ loss to the Clippers, but throwing that game out he’s been a solid contributor across the board for New York as of late. 

Hart is averaging 5.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game this season (8.4 assists and rebounds), yet his prop is set at just 7.5 heading into this matchup. 

I think he can go OVER against the Lakers, as the Knicks will need him on the glass since they’ll be undersized. 

Hart has cleared 7.5 assists and rebounds in 14 of his 25 games this season.
