The 2022-23 NBA season is in full swing with another four matchups set for action on Thursday, Nov. 10. One of those two battles features the Philadelphia 76ers (5-6) facing off against the Atlanta Hawks (7-4) at State Farm Arena at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Here are three of the best prop bets for this 76ers-Hawks game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook's NBA odds.

76ers vs Hawks Player Props

1. Dejounte Murray - Points: Over 21.5 (-104)

Dejounte Murray has fit in just fine in Atlanta, averaging 22.6 points on .465/.348/.852 shooting over 11 games. The 26-year-old veteran has also done well as far as this prop is concerned, finishing with over 21.5 points in five of his last seven games, including in each of the last four. Murray has a great opportunity to continue his hot start due to the 76ers starting De'Anthony Melton in place of the injured James Harden. Melton is a decent defender, but he's only used to playing 20.8 minutes per game in his career. I predict that Murray will take advantage of this favorable matchup, which is only aided by the fact that Philadelphia allows the third-most points to shooting guards this season. With Murray being hotter than ever, back the over on this prop.

2. De'Anthony Melton - Threes Made: Under 2.5 (-156)

Even though De'Anthony Melton has seen more playing time due to Harden's absence, it hasn't led to an increase in three-pointers made. Melton is averaging just 1.5 threes on 4.4 attempts with 34.1% accuracy this season. He's also finished with the under on this prop more often than not this season, being held to two or fewer threes in nine of 10 games this season. In fact, he's shooting just 24% from behind the arc over his last two outings. Considering that he'll be defended by Murray and the Hawks have the sixth-best three-point defense in basketball, it'll be a shock if Melton doesn't finish with the under.

3. Trae Young - Assists: Over 8.5 (+100)

Over the last few years, Trae Young has established himself as one of the NBA's best playmakers. He's averaging over nine assists (9.4) for the fourth consecutive year, picking up nine against the Utah Jazz less than 24 hours ago. While recording nine-plus assists is tough for most, Young can do it in his sleep. He's the straw that stirs the drink for the Hawks, picking up nine-plus assists in seven of his 10 2022-23 outings. Furthermore, he's averaged 9.5 assists in 11 all-time games against the 76ers, hitting the over on this prop in seven of the last nine Philadelphia-Atlanta showdowns. With the offense beginning with Young, count on another huge playmaking performance tonight.
