The Philadelphia 76ers championship odds surged following the trade to acquire James Harden. Now the superstar and new member of the Sixers is set to make his debut Friday as the 76ers play the Timberwolves Friday night in Minneapolis.

Before you place your bet on this matchup, which shows the 76ers a 3-point road favorite on FanDuel Sportsbook, here are some prop bets to play on James Harden in his 76ers debut.

James Harden Prop Bets Tonight

1. James Harden - Made Threes: Over 2.5 (+140)

The Timberwolves play at one of the fastest paces in the league, which even the slower 76ers should like with their new marksman ready to fire. Harden is still taking nearly seven 3-pointers per game, and he'll likely take at least that many in his debut with a solid plus price offered to sink at least three long range shots.

2. James Harden - Rebounds: Under 6.5 (+106)

The Sixers star shooting guard may be firing more shots, but not certain he'll be a rebounding force even against a Timberwolves team that allows more offensive rebounds and ranks in the bottom half of the league in rebounding rate. But even with Sixers star center and MVP favorite Joel Embiid dominating the interior, Philadelphia still ranks No. 27 in rebounding rate.

3. James Harden - Points: Over 21.5 (-106)

Harden is an off-the-dribble 3-point shooter, but his scoring will also improve with strength out of the pick-and-roll with Embiid. In a projected faster pace of play, and a game with more scoring and a posted total of 229, Harden becomes a better bet to reach his points prop. You can also go for a bigger score and take +180 on Harden to score 25+ points.
