Trae Young Over 2.5 Made Threes (+132)

Trae Young is going up against the New York Knicks today, and the Knicks are giving up a three-point attempt rate of 43.1%, the second-highest clip in the NBA. It's a great matchup for Young.

Admittedly, Young has been cold from beyond the arc of late, making just five total triples across his previous four games. He's shot 5 for 30 from three in that span. He's been a little off from three all year, hitting only 29.6% from deep.

But his shooting percentages will rebound eventually -- DARKO projects him as a 36.5% three-point shooter -- and the volume should be there tonight in this matchup.

Our model has Young drilling 3.0 threes on 8.3 attempts. With the over at +132, this is my favorite prop bet of the night.

Klay Thompson Under 4.5 Made Threes (-140)

On the opposite end of the spectrum from the Knicks in terms of three-point defense is the Utah Jazz.

Utah is holding opponents to a 33.2% three-point attempt rate, a league-low mark by 1.4 percentage points. They've been particularly tough on two-guards, allowing only 7.3 three-point tries per game to the position.

That's one of the big reasons I'm on the under on Klay Thompson's made threes at this line of 4.5.

Thompson can still fill it up when he gets going, which he did last time out as he shot 8 for 16 from three on Monday. But prior to that, he made at least five threes in just 4 of his previous 11 games.

While it might seem like the absence of Stephen Curry -- who is out tonight -- would help Klay make more threes, it's been the opposite this campaign. With Curry off the floor this season, Thompson is making 4.1 threes per 36 minutes, a drop of 0.49 threes from his usual mark, per RotoGrinders' CourtIQ.

We project Klay to make 4.3 treys on 11.3 attempts on Wednesday.

Anthony Edwards Over 26.5 Points (-115)

Anthony Edwards is in a blowup spot tonight.

Edwards and the Minnesota Timberwolves are hosting the Indiana Pacers. These two teams rank first and second in pace, and both are in the bottom half of the league in defensive rating. As such, the total for this clash is 237.0 points. Giddy up.

Making things even better for Edwards is that Karl-Anthony Towns is out. With KAT off the floor this year, Edwards has a 30.3% usage rate and drops in 26.7 points per 36 minutes. Those are increases of 3.2 percentage points in usage rate and 4.2 points per 36 minutes. We have Edwards playing 36.8 minutes tonight, and he's logged at least 36 minutes in three straight.

On top of all that, the Pacers have been shredded by shooting guards this season, permitting the third-most points per game to the position.

All of that has me expecting a huge game from Edwards, and I like him to net 27-plus points in this plum spot.
