The Knicks and Kings are meeting for the second time this season. Sacramento got the better of New York in their first meeting, but things could be different with fans at Madison Square Garden this time around.

Here is the current line on Knicks vs. Kings at DraftKings Sportsbook:

New York Knicks -2 (-112) // -129 // O 224(-112)
Sacramento Kings +2 (-110) // +107 // U 224 (-109)

Online sports betting is not yet legal in New York, but bettors who live close to New Jersey or Pennsylvania can travel into those states to put bets down on Knicks-Kings. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite player props for Thursday’s game.

Knicks vs. Kings Player Props


De’Aaron Fox First Made Field Goal (+650)

First made field goal is one of the most exhilarating bets you can make on an NBA game even though there isn’t much to it. Oftentimes, which team wins the opening tip can be the deciding factor in who makes the first bucket.

Again, this is a toss-up but De’Aaron Fox is a good bet on this prop. He’s the top offensive option for the Kings and if they win the tip, he will have the ball in his hands on the very first possession of the game. Don’t break the bank on this one, but we like the odds you can get Fox at on this one.

Julius Randle Over 24.5 Points (-110)

Bettors who have been hammering Julius Randle props have had a very successful NBA season so far. The All-Star forward can fill up the stat sheet with points, rebounds, and assists, but we like his scoring total in this game.

Randle has scored 25 points in four consecutive games and we don’t expect that to change against the Kings. Sacramento is posting the worst defensive rating in the NBA this season and they are going to have their hands full with the Knicks. Randle expanded his game to include the three-point shot and it’s opening up the rest of his offense.

We are going to keep riding Randle on these player props until he falls off or the books readjust.

RJ Barrett Top Scorer (+1600)

RJ Barrett is coming off of one of the worst games of his career. As a result, there’s significant value on Barrett as this game’s top scorer. Like we said, the Kings are atrocious defensively which means that Barrett could have a bounce-back game after scoring four points against the Warriors on Wednesday.

He’ll have strong competition for the top scorer with Randle and Fox, but Barrett’s odds are too good to pass up here. Grab him at +1600, but there’s no need to place a big bet on him. His odds are so good that even a small bet of $10 would win $160.
