Top 2 NBA Player Prop Bets for Tuesday, March 22 (2022)

Trae Young OVER 27.5 POINTS -112

We are going to trust Trae Young and his “love” for the Knicks and The Garden. He is averaging 27.9 points per game, 28.6ppg in L10, and 30 in his L5. After going off for 47 and 46 points in back-to-back games, he cooled in his L2, but I expect him to bounce back tonight. He had 33 and 29 in the two games against the Knicks this year. He killed them last year in the playoffs, especially at MSG. Over the line in 6 of L10 in the last two years in this matchup, so I’m riding with Ice Trae.

Wendell Carter OVER 9.5 REBOUNDS -128

Riding with the hot guy. Wendell is averaging 10.5rpg for the season, but almost 12rpg in his L10 games, in which he cleared the line 8 times. Carter had 10 rebounds in 63% of the games he played this year and with him seeing an increase in his minutes lately I believe he can get a double-double. He had 14 points and 12 rebounds in only 29 minutes in the only meeting between Magic and the Warriors. Without Steph, I don’t expect a complete blowout so he can get at least 30 minutes which he should comfortably cover.

Not a huge slate tonight, but I love these two plays and I wish you the best of luck.
