The 2020-21 NBA Playoffs are continuing with more action on Friday night, including a Game 3 clash between the Philadelphia 76ers and Atlanta Hawks. While the series is tied 1-1, the visiting 76ers are the -118 favorites entering tonight's matchup, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. As usual, there are also a ton of prop and player bets to add some excitement to the action.
Here's a look at the three best player prop bets for Game 3 between the 76ers and Hawks.
76ers vs Hawks Game 3 Player Props
1. Trae Young - Assists: Over 9.5 (-120)
When most people think of Trae Young, they think of him as a great scorer — which he is. However, he's also a really good playmaker. He's averaging 10.0 assists per game during this playoff run and has recorded 10-plus assists in each of his last two games. While it may be difficult to do it again, Young has the talents to accomplish it. The Hawks point guard had three separate occasions this season where he had 10 or more assists in three straight games.
2. Ben Simmons - Points: Under 13.5 (-122)
Ben Simmons is an elite playmaker and defender, and no one can take that away from him. However, he doesn't have the ability to finish, which is made evident by his 13.6 points per game in the current playoffs. Simmons also has just one 20-point game this postseason, so it's unlikely that he'll have a big offensive explosion. Considering how he finished Game 2 with just 4 points in nearly 35 minutes played, there's a good chance that Simmons won't hit the 13.5 total tonight.
3. Bogdan Bogdanovic - Points: Under 17.5 (-104)
One reason why the Hawks have made it as far as they have in the postseason is because of their secondary options, including Bogdan Bogdanovic. The Serbian shooting guard has come up back when Atlanta has needed it, including when he dropped 21 points in the Game 1 victory over the 76ers. However, that was the only time he scored 18 or more points in his last four games. In fact, if you remove that game, he's averaging just 11.7 ppg in the three remaining games. Even though he has come up big in the past for the Hawks, Bogdanovic is too streaky to trust with the over tonight.
