Player Props Tonight
With Josh Richardson out, there is some value with some of the Sixers’ props. Tobias Harris and Ben Simmons totals seem to be a tad low, as they will handle the ball on scoring plays a tad more often.
|Ben Simmons||0.5 (+1400)|
+1400 for Ben Simmons to hit a three?! Well, he has taken one shot outside of the paint this season…so that seems like fool’s gold.
You can also bet rebounds, assists, and more!
Miscellaneous Player Props
First Field Goal
|Player||First FG of Game|
This is always a fun prop, as it ends after 15-20 seconds most times. Embiid is obviously the favorite, but Tobias Harris is a nice value at 7:1 without Josh Richardson. If the Knicks score first, R.J. Barrett at 10:1 is quite the value as well.
|Player||Double Double Yes||Double Double No|
Ben Simmons at +174 to record a double double is a terrific bet, given he has the chance to reach in three categories, Embiid’s price is too high at -315, but he is very likely to record a double double.
Ben Simmons is +1000 to record a triple double, and -2500 to not record a triple double. Too high to bet on no, and with Joel Embiid and others in the lineup, +1000 isn’t enough.
Points, Rebounds, and Assists
This is a great way to bet your favorite player props, as it adds up the total amount of points, rebounds, AND assists for one total number to bet on.
|Player||Points Rebounds Assists|
Marcus Morris is averaging 18.6 PPG, 1.2 APG, and 5.9 RPG. 22.5 is low for him, and he likely will not see Ben Simmons defensively, which helps him.
Embiid’s 39.5 is a high number, as 25 points and 12 rebounds is only 37 total, and assists are hard to predict for big men. They usually come when a big man is double-teamed, which happens with Embiid. With that being said, it would hurt his points prop.
