The Knicks are trying to wipe away their blowout loss to the Bucks, but the Thunder might have something to say about that. New York is going into Oklahoma City to take on a shorthanded Thunder squad. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is out with a quad injury. This is the second game on a four-game road trip for the Knicks.
Here is the current line on Knicks vs. Thunder at DraftKings Sportsbook:
New York Knicks -5.5 (-108) // -205 // O 210.5 (-112)
Oklahoma City Thunder +5.5 (-113) // +170 // U 210.5 (-109)

Knicks vs. Thunder Props
RJ Barrett Over 17.5 Points (-115)
RJ Barrett is playing the best basketball of his NBA career right now. Even though the Knicks looked lost against the Bucks on Thursday, Barrett provided a rare bright spot for the team. He scored 22 points on 9-for-15 shooting and now the second-year wing has scored 20 or more points in four of his last five games.
In his last 27 games, Barrett is averaging 17.0 points on 49/47/76 shooting splits. He’s becoming an efficient scorer from every part of the floor. Taking the over on RJ Barrett points is a smart move moving forward.

Nerlens Noel Over 8.5 Rebounds (+104)
Is this the Nerlens Noel revenge game? Technically, Noel had his chance at a revenge game against the Thunder earlier this year, but he only played 11 minutes, scoring 0 points in that game.
However, this time things will be different. Noel is in the starting lineup while Mitchell Robinson works his way back from a hand fracture. The veteran big man is playing over 30 minutes per game since becoming a starter and he’s averaging 7.5 rebounds per game.
The price on this over/under is worth it. Noel has recorded nine or more rebounds in seven games this year, five of which he was a starter.

Julius Randle Over 39.5 Points+Rebounds+Assists (-110)
Julius Randle had his worst game of the season against the Bucks, but he chalked it up to post-All-Star break rust. He finished with fewer than 10 points for the first time all year.
Don’t expect that to happen again. Randle is the engine for the Knicks and they need him to play well if they are going to make a playoff push. Randle’s total here is way up there at 39.5 points, but we expect him to come out and make a statement.
If you are feeling extra confident here, DraftKings Sportsbook has Randle listed at +1000 to record a triple-double. The All-Star forward already has one triple-double this year and this would be the perfect time for his second.
