The Detroit Pistons are on the road on Monday night to take on the New York Knicks, and there are several angles to take in the prop market for this matchup. 

Pistons guard Cade Cunningham has been on fire as of late, scoring 56 points in his last two games even though he didn’t attempt a single free throw in those matchups. 

As for the Knicks, the team is still down three starters, but there could be a sneaky prop bet for All-Star guard Jalen Brunson tonight.

Let’s dive into the best props for Knicks vs. Pistons: 

Knicks vs. Pistons best NBA prop bets

  • Cade Cunningham OVER 21.5 points
  • Jalen Duren OVER 12.5 rebounds and assists
  • Jalen Brunson OVER 2.5 3-pointers made

Cade Cunningham OVER 21.5 points

Cunningham has easily cleared this prop in back-to-back games, and he put together a 31-point outing against the Knicks earlier this season. 

The former No. 1 overall pick has cleared this total in four of his last six games, attempting at least 15 shots in five of those contests. The usage will be key, but with the Pistons moving on from Alec Burks and Bojan Bogdanovic (traded to New York) at the deadline, Cunningham and Jaden Ivey have run the offense. 

Cade is averaging 22.2 points on 18.5 shot attempts per game this season. New York’s defense has slipped into the bottom 10 in the NBA over its last 10 games, so he may be undervalued at this number on Monday. 

Jalen Duren OVER 12.5 rebounds and assists

I love this prop for Jalen Duren, even though the Knicks are the No. 1 rebounding team in the NBA this season. 

Isaiah Hartenstein is currently on a minutes limit, and the Knicks are down big man Mitchell Robinson and star forward Julius Randle, two of the team’s leading rebounders. 

Duren has cleared 12.5 rebounds and assists in six of his last seven games, and he’s averaging 12.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game on the season. In his last meeting with the Knicks, the Pistons big man had 12 boards and two assists, which would have hit the OVER on this prop. 

I think he’s undervalued in this one against a Knicks team that is clearly at less than full strength. 

Jalen Brunson OVER 2.5 3-pointers made

Jalen Brunson went through a bit of a shooting slump ahead of the All-Star break, but he’s cleared this prop in two of his last three games, going 4-for-9 from beyond the arc in the team’s loss to the Boston Celtics on Saturday. 

Brunson is shooting 40.7 percent from 3 on the season, and now he gets a favorable matchup with a Detroit team that ranks just 24th in the NBA in opponent 3-point percentage. 

Getting Brunson at plus money in this prop is great value, especially since he made seven shots from beyond the arc the last time these teams played. I love the OVER for JB on Monday night.
