3 Best Prop Bets for Nets vs 76ers NBA Game on FanDuel Sportsbook
Thursday's NBA slate has just two games, including an exciting clash between the Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers on TNT at 7:30 p.m. EST. The new-look 76ers are 4.5-point favorites and the over/under is set at 234.5 points.
Here's three of the best prop bets for the Nets-76ers game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Nets vs 76ers Bets Tonight
1. Kevin Durant - Points: Under 30.5 (-120)
Kevin Durant is averaging 32 points per game in three contests against the Philadelphia 76ers this season. But don't let that fool you. Two of those three games were played in Brooklyn, without Kyrie Irving. Enter Kyrie Irving on an incredible hot streak. The Nets guard is pouring in 28.1 points per game in his last 10 and scores 31.1% of Brooklyn's made field goal attempts by the starters. His 26.5% usage rates cuts into KD's scoring load tonight.
2. Kyrie Irving - Made Threes: Over 2.5 (-102)
We're targeting Irving again for him to make at least three shots from beyond the arc. Irving has put up 7.8 attempts from deep in his recent 10-game hot stretch and is sinking them at 42.3%. That's good for 3.3 three-pointers a night. At nearly even odds, this prop is too good to pass up.
3. Joel Embiid - Rebounds: Under 12.5 (-118)
The Philadelphia 76ers enter this contest in the bottom-third of NBA rebounding. Joel Embiid is the team's best option on the board, but he hasn't had much success pulling down rebounders against the Nets. Embiid has hit the under in all three of his previous meetings with Brooklyn. Between Philly's 28th-ranked pace and Brooklyn's 53.1% effective field-goal percentage (15th), there's just not enough opportunity for Embiid to hit the over here.
