Boston Celtics vs. New York Knicks Player Prop Picks

Which players will thrive in this Celtics vs. Knicks contest?

Donte DiVincenzo Over 3.5 3PM (-120 FD)

The off-season acquisition is on a three-point tear at the moment. DiVincenzo has made four threes in nine of his past eleven games and averaged twelve attempts per game from deep over that stretch. Julius Randle and OG Anunoby’s injuries have helped drive up his volume, and they remain out tonight. 

DiVincenzo encounters a Boston defense that gives up the third most wide open three-point attempts and most above the break attempts per game. That bodes well for DiVincenzo, as 72 percent of his three-point attempts come from this area. 

New York will be incentivized to lean into jump shots too given Kristaps Porzingis’ presence. The Celtics big man is a devastating paint protector and ranks fourth across the NBA in rim points saved per 75 possessions via Basketball Index

Based on his odds, DiVincenzo must hit the over at least 55 percent of the time for the bet to have a positive expected value, which subsequently makes it a profitable play in the long run. 

Josh Hart Over 13.5 Rebounds + Assists (+100 FD)

Since Julius Randle and OG Anunoby’s injuries, Josh Hart’s role has significantly increased. It’s allowed his ferocious rebounding and connective passing to shine, thus leading to substantial numbers. He has recorded at least 14 RAs in nine of ten games post injuries with an average of 15.6 RAs per game. 

Boston’s three-point heavy diet and reliance on jump shots leave them vulnerable to cold shooting nights; they rank 16th in opponent rebounds per game. Kristaps Porzingis’ outside shot also pulls Isaiah Hartenstein away from the basket, so New York needs Hart’s aggression on the glass more than ever. 

The Celtics’ elite guard defenders will often force Jalen Brunson to pass too, and they may even trap him at a frequent rate. Therefore, the Knicks require others to step up and create looks for teammates. Although Hart is no wizard, the Villanova product has passing chops. 

He must cash the over at least 51 percent of the time for the bet to be profitable in the long run.
