Saturday's NBA slate of playoff games includes a Game 1 showdown between the Toronto Raptors and Philadelphia 76ers. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Sixers as a 4.5-point road favorites over the Raptors with the total at 216.5 points.
Here's three of the best prop bets for the Raptors-76ers game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
1. Tyrese Maxey - Made Threes: Over 2.5 (+146)
Tyrese Maxey has made 6-of-9 three pointers in two meetings against the Raptors the past month. He should get plenty of three-point looks against the Toronto, who allow more than 12 three-point attempts per game. The the 11 games prior to the March 20 meeting against the Raptors, Maxey was shooting 48% from 3-point land. Since then, he's 36-of-71 (51%) from deep to continue his exceptionally strong shooting from long range.
2. Tyrese Maxey - Points: Over 17.5 (-112)
Maxey also made 8-of-11 threes and scored 30 points at Indiana April 5, and then 4-of-5 and 22 points at Toronto April 7. He's continued his strong shooting and scoring, which is expected again in Game 1. Maxey has scored at least 18 points in his last four games.
3. James Harden - Made Threes: Over 2.5 (+120)
Another plus price on a Sixers sharp shooter to make at least three 3-pointers in Game 1. Harden has taken at least six 3-pointers in six of Philly's last seven games. He's not shooting nearly as well as Maxey, but has made at least two 3-pointers in 8-of-9 games. Let's take a shot on making three rather than lay -290 to make at least two 3-pointers.
