The 2020-21 NBA Playoffs continue on Wednesday, June 16 with an exciting Game 5 matchup between the Atlanta Hawks and Philadelphia 76ers. This series is tied 2-2, and tonight's winner will gain a serious edge in advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals.

Here's a look at the three best player prop bets heading into Game 5 on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Hawks vs 76ers Game 5 Player Props

1. Trae Young - Points: Over 27.5 (-116)

While a lot of NBA players thrive playing on their home court, it's the opposite for Trae Young. The Hawks star hasn't shied away from playing the villain in this year's playoffs and he can do it again in Game 5. Even though he's averaging 28.3 PPG during this year's playoffs run, Young seems to elevate his game on the road, averaging 30.8 PPG away from Atlanta. Considering how the Hawks are riding the momentum of their Game 4 victory, Young is going to want to keep things going.

2. Ben Simmons - Rebounds: Under 7.5 (+100)

Standing at 6-foot-11, Ben Simmons is one of the best rebounding point guards in the NBA — if he's not the absolute best. However, he doesn't always put up big rebounding totals. While Simmons is averaging 8.8 RPG during the playoffs, he's averaging just 5.75 in his last four games. That number is somewhat inflated because of his 12-rebound performance in Game 4, meaning he's recorded 4 or fewer rebounds in three of his last four games. In other words, there's a good chance that Simmons will hit the under.

3. Joel Embiid - Points: Over 30.5 (-108)

After a disappointing 17-point performance in Game 4, 76ers superstar Joel Embiid is going to want to have a bounce-back game on Wednesday. Fortunately, there's a good chance of that happening as he's consistently stepped up whenever he's playing in Philadelphia in the 2020-21 NBA Playoffs. Embiid is averaging 32.8 PPG at home during this year's playoffs, which includes 39- and 40-point efforts in the first two games of this series. The four-time All-Star rarely puts up back-to-back poor performances, so look for him to try and win Game 5 for the 76ers by himself.
