NBA Prop Predictions for Malcolm Brogdon vs New York Knicks 11/15/21
Happy Monday! We have been all over the young stars of the league the last few weeks with our NBA prop bets. We’re switching it up today as we’re picking three veterans who I believe are due for big games on this 11-game Monday night. Let’s get into it.
Malcolm Brodgon over 30.5 points + rebounds + assists (-115) at the New York Knicks
At the age of 28, Malcolm Brogdon is averaging career bests for points per game & rebounds per game. One of the most underrated players in the sport year after year, Brodgon and his Pacers now square up against the New York Knicks Monday night. The Knicks have badly struggled defensively this season after being one of the best defenses in the sport a year ago. The Knicks have lost five of their last seven and are allowing 15.2 made threes per game this season, the most in the NBA. Brogdon has struggled with his three-point ball early on this year (28 percent) so thinking half glass full, he’s due for a big shooting game. We’ve seen struggling shooters (cough cough Ricky Rubio) come to the Garden and light it up from three this year.
Kyle Kuzma over 16.5 points (-120) vs the New Orleans Pelicans
Kyle Kuzma is back to how he was playing his first two seasons in the NBA as a key scorer, now for the Washington Wizards. We continue to pick on the New Orleans Pelicans, who are 27th in points per game allowed (111.7 PPG allowed). With Lonzo Ball out of New Orleans, the Pelicans don’t really have any above-average defensive players left. Kuzma has hit this over in each of his last two games. With no Bradley Beal (personal reasons) suiting up tonight, I love Kuzma to score over 16.5 points.
Jonas Valanciunas over 30.5 points + rebounds (-115) at the Washington Wizards
Jonas Valanciunas has been a personal favorite of mine all season and as long as Zion Williamson remains out, JV will be a guy you should always consider. Valanciunas has hit this over in nine of his last 12 games. Valanciunas continues to rack up a massive amount of minutes (34.1 MPG over his last 12). With no other reliable big on the roster, Valanciunas will continue to be relied on heavily. Despite a 2-12 record, Valanciunas has been the only bright light for a very dim New Orleans Pelicans season. In addition, the Washington Wizards struggle to keep big men out of the paint. Washington is allowing 49.7 points per game in the paint, the fourth most in the entire NBA.
