Chicago Bulls vs. New York Knicks Player Prop Picks
Which players will dominate in the Bulls vs. Knicks game?
Donte DiVincenzo Over 2.5 3PM (-120 DK) & 4+ 3PM (+200 FD)
The Bulls surrender the second most open plus wide open three-point attempts, along with the largest catch-and-shoot three-point frequency (via ShotQuality). To say that Chicago’s perimeter defense needs work is a massive understatement. Shooting guards in particular have thrashed the Bulls, as they allow the most made threes to them at a whopping 4.09 per game.
Since entering the starting lineup on December 8th, Donte DiVincenzo owns a 46.3 three-point percentage on 6.3 attempts per game. Over that span, he played in five games against teams that currently rank in the bottom ten of open plus wide open three-point attempts allowed. DiVincenzo recorded the following stats from three:
His elite catch-and-shoot game pairs perfectly with Jalen Brunson’s drive-heavy approach, and he sits in prime position to scorch Chicago from beyond the arc. One main worry is the game being a blowout though, which would reduce DiVincenzo’s minutes. If he can secure around 22 to 25 minutes here, then there is a good chance of him hitting the over.
Based on his odds, DiVincenzo must make three threes roughly 55 percent of the time and four threes roughly 33 percent of the time for the bets to be profitable in the long run.
Isaiah Hartenstein Under 18.5 Points + Rebounds (-125 DK)
The Bulls allow the fewest field goal attempts within eight feet of the basket because opponents find an enormous amount of success from the perimeter. That doesn’t bode well for Hartenstein, as 93.3 percent of his field goal attempts come from within ten feet of the basket. His lack of range should limit his scoring volume here.
Hartenstein will also find it difficult to dominate the boards. Andre Drummond easily leads the league in total rebound percentage, and the veteran actually owns the largest career total rebound percentage in NBA history. Offensive rebound opportunities will be scarce against Drummond, which also hurts Hartenstein’s scoring since 31.9 percent of his possessions are classified as put-backs (the fifth largest rate in the league).
Overall, Hartenstein has failed to record 19 points plus rebounds in four straight games now, and his outlook is grim here based on the matchup. He must hit the under roughly 56 percent of the time for the bet to have a positive expected value.
