- To Record A Triple Double – Julius Randle +1400
Randle averages 19.6 PPG, 4.9 APG, and 10.1 RPG this season but his production output increases when he faces the Celtics.
In the two games that the Knicks and Celtics have played one another, Randle is averaging 27.5 PPG, 8.5 RPG, and 8.0 APG. Randle finishes with two more assists and rebounds against Boston and he collects a triple-double.
First Triple-Double Of The Season?
Randle has actually not posted a triple-double at all this season despite averaging double-digit rebounds. In fact, Randle does not have a single game this season where he finished with double-digit assists.
Randle does have three games this season where he finished with nine assists, however. These were against Boston, the Chicago Bulls, and the Houston Rockets.
If Randle can get nine assists against the Celtics once this season, he could also finish with 10 under the right circumstances.
The points and rebounds will not be a problem for the All-Star power forward either, as Randle is the Knicks’ leader in points, rebounds, and assists. As the primary ball-handler, Randle could finish with a triple-double on any given night, despite it not happening so far this season.
The Celtics and the Knicks always have a heated back and forth game so if there is a time for Randle to go off it would be against the Celtics making this longshot bet very tempting at NBA sportsbooks.
