3 Best Prop Bets for 76ers vs Nets Game 4 on April 22 (Harden Balls Out With Embiid Sidelined)
By Tyler Maher
Saturday's NBA Playoffs slate kicks off with Game 4 between the Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets. The 76ers are going for the sweep after taking the first three games of the series, while the Nets will try to stave off elimination and send the series back to Philly.
Here are three of the best prop bets for 76ers-Nets Game 4, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
76ers vs Nets Game 4 Player Props
1. James Harden - Player Points: Over 22.5 (-120)
With Joel Embiid already ruled out for Game 4 with a right knee sprain, Harden will have to shoulder a heavier scoring load on Saturday. That shouldn't be too much of a problem for him given that he's already topped 20 points twice in this series. Without Embiid to share the ball with, expect Harden to launch at least 20 shots and finish with over 22 points, as he did in Game 1.
2. Mikal Bridges - Player Points: Under 26.5 (-106)
Bridges has had a phenomenal series thus far, which has probably caused his points prop to be set a bit too high as a result. He's gone under 26.5 points in two of the three games against Philadelphia and in six of his last seven games overall. Even in Game 3, when he played 43 minutes and fired up 26 field goal attempts, he still went under this prop. The Sixers have a tough defense (third-fewest points allowed during regular season), too, so we expect Bridges to fall just short of this prop.
3. James Harden - Player Assists: Under 9.5 (-134)
Pivoting back to Harden, expect him to shoot more and pass less without Embiid on the floor. He hasn't been doing a great job of finding his teammates lately anyways, tallying just 11 total assists over the last two games combined. Harden's assist total has actually decreased every game in this series so far, which is an alarming trend. He's also finished with single-digit dimes in four of his last six games, so take the Under here as he focuses more on hunting for his shot.
