This game should be the most entertaining of the four NBA playoff games tonight. The Knicks are in MSG fighting for their lives, and the Hawks and villain Trae Young come in looking to finish the job. The game has the closest spread, and there isn’t much room on the total that I see. I’m going to lean towards taking the Knicks at home and extending the series, but Thibs really has never gotten more out of his team in the playoffs. 

I am looking for a big score tonight with a few plays that I’ll combine into a Same Game Parlay. I like the Knicks to keep getting RJ Barrett more involved and have him score over his posted total of 15.5 at -116. Barrett has gone under that total in three of his four games – keep in mind this is his first playoff series – but he had 21 in the last game. He is getting enough shots. Now he just needs a couple more to start falling in order to get him close to 20 points. Optional, play him at 20+ points to get extra value into the parlay. 

Trae Young seems to really enjoy this stage. He’s hitting 2.8 threes out of 7.5 attempts in this series. I think he can get that third tonight as he tries to space the floor against the Knicks. I like the over, another nice optional play to add to the parlay, but, my thought is to take his point total of over 25.5 at -108. The only way I don’t see him getting to this total is if the Knicks blow out the Hawks and they rest him for the rest of the game. He’s averaging 27.5 for the series and only had one game below 25 points this series. 

John Collins is another Hawk that I’m looking at tonight with a nice line to play. He is at +140 for him to hit 2+ threes tonight. He hasn’t shot a ton of them this series, but he has hit two in three of the four games so far.

One other Knick play to add into this is Julius Randle getting 10+ rebounds. He has been a double-double machine this season. This series, he has achieved one in each game. I don’t like playing this separate because it is too juicy at -180, but to add to the parlay, I like it. If you think he will get 11 or more rebounds, take his over 10.5 at lower odds (-105).

Keep in mind, FanDuel Sportsbook is offering $10 free bet on this. Place a same game parlay bet up to $10 and if it loses get credited with the $10. If you want the most bang for your buck, try the one with the extra plays.
