RJ Barret Over 17.5 Points (-102) + Julius Randle Over 5.5 Assists (+106) + Knicks +4 (-106)
FanDuel Sportsbook’s Same Game Parlay is one of the best options around for bettors. Knicks fans who believe this hot streak will continue should roll with this one that pays out $57.56 on a $10 bet.
Barrett has had his ups and downs this year, but he’s scored 19 or more points in his last four games. Randle, on the other hand, is coming off of his worst assist game of the year on Monday, but we expect him to bounce back against the Warriors. Randle has put up six or more assists in eight of his 15 games this year.
And as for the Knicks at +4, they are going to be the more well-rested team. Their last game came on Monday. Meanwhile, Golden State played on Wednesday against the San Antonio Spurs. Stephen Curry only had to play 31 minutes in the blowout win, but he’s been forced to carry a heavy load without Klay Thompson this year.

Mitchell Robinson Over 8.5 Points (-125)
Mitchell Robinson vs. James Wiseman is one of the most intriguing matchups of Thursday’s game. There were some rumblings in the offseason about the Knicks trading Robinson to the Warriors with the intention of drafting Wiseman, but those rumors never came to fruition.
Now, the third-year center is looking to make a statement against the No. 2 overall pick. Robinson and Wiseman are both very similar players. Wiseman has a bit more offensive skill, but Robinson is already one of the best defensive centers in the NBA.
This number is right at Robinson’s season average for points, but we expect to see him go over on this number. After a two-day layoff, expect Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau to lean on Robinson for big minutes. In the seven games where Robinson has played more than 30 minutes, he’s scored nine or more points six times.

Stephen Curry To Score First Field Goal (+500)
We understand that scoring the first field goal of the game is like a bet out of “Uncut Gems” but let’s roll with Stephen Curry to score first. Even though he is making it a point to facilitate for his teammates this year, he is still Golden State’s best scorer by a country mile.
Look for the Warriors to play through Curry early and often on Thursday. If Wiseman wins the tip against Robinson, Curry could give bettors an early win.
