Friday's NBA slate of 2021-22 playoff games includes a showdown between the Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Heat as the 3-point road favorites over the 76ers.

Here are the three of the best prop bets for the Heat-76ers game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Heat vs 76ers Player Props

1. Tyrese Maxey - Points: Over 22.5 (-108)

Joel Embiid will likely miss Game 3 as he deals with an orbital fracture, meaning Tyrese Maxey must continue taking a significant offensive role in his absence. The second-year guard has averaged 26.5 PPG so far this series, firmly hitting the over on this prop in Game 2 with a 34-point performance. Maxey saw 22 field-goal opportunities in his last outing, which would give him more than enough volume to hit the over if that continues. Add in the fact that he's hit the over in three of his last four home games and things are looking promising for Maxey on this prop.

2. Bam Adebayo - Rebounds: Under 9.5 (-115)

Bam Adebayo is one of the top young centers in the league, but the 76ers have done a good job at keeping his rebounding numbers in check. Adebayo has averaged 8.6 RPG in his last 10 outings against Philadelphia, hitting the under on this prop seven times over that stretch. Even without Embiid to deal with Game 2, he still only finished with nine rebounds. Furthermore, Adebayo has finished with nine or fewer rebounds 14 times in the last 19 games, which further proves that the under is the right call here.

3. James Harden - Assists: Under 9.5 (-134)

After averaging 10.5 assists in 21 regular-season games with the 76ers, James Harden's assist totals have been quieter in the postseason. Although his 9.4 APG in the playoffs may not seem like that big of a difference, bettors should take note that he's finished with the under on this prop in five of the last seven games — including both of this series' matchups so far. Embiid's absence has clearly given Harden fewer playmaking opportunities this series, which should be made evident again tonight.
