The Memphis Grizzlies continue on their east coast road trip on Wednesday night with a matchup against a struggling New York Knicks squad. This matchup spells an intriguing opportunity for sports bettors, who should zero in on a Desmond Bane prop bet.
Despite winning their last contest in convincing fashion against the Sacramento Kings, the Knicks lost six of their last seven prior to that. The Grizzlies, on the other hand, are continuing their breakout season, led by first-year All-Star starter Ja Morant. Winners of three of their last four, but coming off a tough loss in Philadelphia on Monday night, Wednesday provides a perfect bounce-back spot for the Grizzlies.
For those wishing to place a wager on the game, we have a perfect opportunity to hit a couple of player props.
Grizzlies vs Knicks Player Prop Bets
We are going to play this one as a parlay since the two bets go hand in hand. Desmond Bane has been tearing it up the past 10 games, averaging over 21.7 points per game, and that total actually rises ever so slightly on the road in that span at 21.8. He just had a season-high 34 points on Monday night and has hit the over on tonight’s total in four of his last five games. His over/under for points on tonight’s game sits at 18.5 PPG, according to WynnBET.
Additionally, Bane has been a monster from behind the arc, shooting 42% on the season, and his attempts have risen up as of late, without a drop-off in percentage.
While the Knicks rank eighth in defensive rating this season, one area they struggle to protect is the three-point line, surrendering the seventh-most three-point attempts per game to opponents in the NBA.
Desmond Bane Prop Bet
Bane is averaging 2.9 made threes per game this season, and has made at least two three-pointers in 10 of his last 12 contests, including five on Monday night against the Sixers.
Combining these two bets into a Build Your Own Bet same game parlay on WynnBet (Over 18.5 points and 2+ made threes for Desmond Bane) will carry odds of -125.
It’s sure to be a fun contest between two squads filled with young talent, but the way this game is shaping up and how Bane has been performing lately, he could be in for a fantastic game at the world’s most famous arena.
