The Knicks are trying to forget about Monday’s gut-wrenching loss to the Nets, but the 76ers might have something to say about that. New York’s last win over Philly came in April of 2017 and the Sixers are coming into this game as a sizable favorite.
Here is the current line on Knicks vs. 76ers at DraftKings Sportsbook:
New York Knicks: +7 (-110) // +250 // O 218 (-113)
Philadelphia 76ers: -7 (-110) // -305 // U 218 (-108)

Knicks vs. 76ers Props
Ben Simmons Over 33.5 Points+Rebounds+Assists (-110)
Ben Simmons owns the Knicks. There might not be another player in the NBA who has had as much success against one team as Simmons has had against the Knicks. He is 12-0 all-time against New York while averaging 15.1 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 8.3 assists in those games.
If history tells us anything, it’s that Simmons is going to have a big game on Tuesday night. Moreover, the Sixers are going to need more from him than usual. Joel Embiid is still out with a knee injury, meaning that Simmons will have added responsibility on the court.

RJ Barrett Over 17.5 Points (-118)
Lock this one up and take it to the bank. RJ Barrett is taking his game to a different level as of late, scoring 20 or more points in five of his last six games. He could draw a tough matchup if the Sixers decide to stick Ben Simmons on him. Ironically enough, both Barrett and Simmons attended Montverde High School and played for legendary high school coach Kevin Boyle. They should know each other pretty well entering this game.
But even if Barrett sees a lot of Ben Simmons, the paint will be a bit more open without Embiid playing. Barrett is making significant strides with his three-point shooting, but he’s still a slasher first and foremost.

Reggie Bullock Over 1.5 Made Threes (-180)
The juice on this bet is a bit high, but we still think this is as safe a player prop as you will find on this Knicks-Sixers game. Reggie Bullock has remained in the starting lineup for the Knicks because he can knock down catch-and-shoot opportunities off of Randle and RJ Barrett kick-outs.
Bullock drilled five of his 10 attempts from beyond the arc on Monday and he’s connected on multiple triples in his last four games. Again, we don’t like the price on this bet, but it’s worth it to throw a little extra on this Reggie Bullock prop.
