The Indiana Pacers rebounded at home, winning both games to level the series with the New York Knicks. The series returns to New York as we offer our top Pacers vs. Knicks player props based on the best NBA odds.

Deadlocked at 2-2, the Indiana Pacers and New York Knicks have each defended their home court, setting the stage for a pivotal Game 5 showdown at Madison Square Garden. This crucial matchup is slated for today at 8 p.m. ET on TNT.

The Knicks' victories at Madison Square Garden were largely fueled by Jalen Brunson's standout performances. However, the Pacers responded with two strong wins at Gainbridge Fieldhouse to even the series. As they head into Game 5, both teams find themselves closely matched in the NBA championship odds, adding to the anticipation surrounding this pivotal contest.

Along with our Timberwolves vs. Nuggets player props, here are our best Pacers vs. Knicks player props and NBA picks (odds via our best NBA betting sites; pick confidence based on a 1-to-5-star scale).

Pacers vs. Knicks prop bet predictions for today

Pascal Siakam Over 2.5 assists ⭐⭐⭐

This first bet is a bit risky, since Pascal Siakam totaled only three assists in the Pacers' two wins at home. However, he averaged 6.5 potential assists across those two games, providing us with solid value on a total that's likely one dime too low for today's game.

We're getting good value with these -148 odds through DraftKings, too, as Siakam Over 2.5 is trading at around -160 at the rest of our best sports betting sites.

Additionally, Pinnacle, which features one of the most respected trading teams in the sports betting industry, prices its Over at -166 after opening at -153.

It did, however, go as short as -223 at Pinnacle before some buyback on the Under. That tells us that the sharp action on the Under was likely the result of that side going too long, which isn't the case when the Over is trading at just -148, as it is here.

Best odds: -148 via DraftKings

Isaiah Hartenstein Under 4.5 assists ⭐⭐⭐

Knicks big man Isaiah Hartenstein may have been one of the worst players on the court during the Game 4 loss. He managed just four points and was a minus-28. However, most importantly (for this bet, at least), he managed zero assists after totaling 17 across the first three games of the series.

We're still getting value on Hartenstein's assists Under thanks to his stellar play passing the ball before Game 4, but all signs point to this Under being the right play.

First, this is easily the best price across any of our best sports betting apps, which are all hovering around -150 for Under 4.5 assists. Additionally, Pinnacle is already at -187 after opening at -151.

I'm not quite sure what DraftKings is thinking with these -135 odds, but let's make it pay - literally.

Best odds: -135 via DraftKings

Myles Turner Under 7.5 rebounds ⭐⭐⭐

We round out our picks with another Under, this time on the Pacers big man. Myles Turner is 6-foot-11 and averaged 6.9 rebounds this season. Apparently, he attended the Brook Lopez School of Being Big For No Reason.

Turner has gone Over this rebounds total just once in the series in Game 3, and that was the result of six offensive rebounds - a massive outlier when you break down his numbers. He combined for just 14 total rebounds across the other three contests.

You can get similar odds to these at our other best sportsbooks, as DraftKings and BetMGM are offering a -120 price on Under 7.5 rebounds. Those also show solid value, but this price at bet365 is something else.

Comparatively, Pinnacle opened its Under at -124 - shorter odds than these - and it's been smashed to -149 already.

Best odds: -115 via bet365
