3 Best Prop Bets for 76ers vs Nets Game 3 on April 20 (Mikal Bridges Puts on a Show at the Barclays Center)


Thursday's NBA Playoffs slate includes an exciting Game 3 showdown between the Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets. The 76ers stepped on the defensive end of the court in Game 2 by allowing only 35 second-half points in their 96-84 victory and are now up 2-0 in the series.

Here are three of the best prop bets for 76ers-Nets Game 3, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

76ers vs Nets Game 3 Player Props

1. Mikal Bridges - Points: Over 26.5 (-102)

This is do-or-die time for the Nets as falling into an 0-3 hole is the last thing they want to do against an experienced team like the 76ers. Brooklyn is back on its home court tonight, which is worth noting as Mikal Bridges is averaging a reliable 26.6 points per home game for the Nets this season. The former Villanova standout went off for 30 points in Game 1 of this series before a poor shooting night (6-of-15) led to only 21 points in Game 2. That was the first time since March that Bridges did not log at least 18 shot attempts, so expect an increased role for Brooklyn's young leader.

2. Tobias Harris - Points: Under 14.5 (-122)

There's no denying that Tobias Harris has stepped up in a big way for the 76ers during this series as he has dropped at least 20 points in each of the first two games. However, his scoring output has taken a dip when on the road this season. Harris is averaging only 14.2 points in away games and one of his worst outings of the year came inside the Barclays Center on Feb. 11. He managed only 3 points and shot a horrendous 1-of-9 from the floor. Both of these teams rank among the bottom 10 in pace, meaning possessions will be at a premium tonight. Harris won't see enough opportunities to hit this mark.

3. Royce O'Neale - Made Threes: Over 1.5 (-125)

Brooklyn head coach Jacque Vaughn stressed after Game 1 that he wanted to see his team take more shots along the perimeter in order to gain an edge on Philly's tough rim defense. Royce O'Neale certainly heard the call as he took 9 shots from three-point range in Game 2 and made a pair of them. O'Neale has now drained at least 2 three-pointers in 13 of his last 17 games overall. The veteran saw 8 more minutes of action in Game 2 versus Game 1 and should be in for a similar role tonight considering he shoots 39.0% from beyond the arc at home in his Nets career.
