Pascal Siakam vs New York Knicks: NBA Prop Predictions 12/10/21
What is up Karma Nation! With the NBA in full swing, I will now be introducing my prop predictions article for the NBA and the NFL. Last week, we lost last week with Devonte Graham over 3.5 assists but we are here again this week to see what edges we can find tonight. Today we will be looking at my prop prediction for Pascal Siakam vs New York Knicks; an assist prop I love tonight.
My first step in the research process is taking a look at how Vegas is projecting these games. Where the high-scoring games are and where the low-scoring games are. You must be aware of one thing for NBA props if you are betting an over in a game that could blow out. Games I normally avoid are ones that have a double-digit spread. Usually, those are the ones with a higher chance of a blowout. Honestly, any game can blow out. All it takes is a hot-shooting third quarter from one team and a cold-shooting third quarter for another team for these games to get out of hand. That is the issue with living and dying by the 3 which teams are more likely to do nowadays. Even the best scorers can miss wide-open shots, in some games, your shot just isn’t falling and defense doesn’t matter.
Highest total: Kings vs Hornets 231
Lowest Total: Knicks vs Knicks 207.5
Highest Spread: Bucks (-9.5) vs Rockets

We have him projected as an A-graded prop tonight against the Dallas Mavericks. Projecting him for 4.19 assists. Another that is A- or better is considered a top prop according to our top prop predictor.
Pascal Siakam and the Toronto Raptors have not been as good as expected this season. Coming into this game they are currently last in the Atlantic division with an important game tonight to try to climb up the standings. This game has the lowest total on the slate. Although, the Raptors do have a worst record than the New York Knicks they are currently favored by 1.5 points.
Siakam is averaging 3.8 assists on the season, this is up from his career 2.7 assists per game average. He has only played 14 games this season and has gone over this mark in 8 of the 14 games he has played, so just over 50%. His recent performance has locked me in on this prop and I have taken advantage of it a couple of times over the course of this stretch. In his last six games, he is averaging 4.3 assists on 8.3 potential assists per game. He has gone over in five of those six games as well. His lone under came on a three-assist night where he dropped 31 points. Usually, in the games a player is scoring at will they will more than likely not go over their assist prop.
