Thursday's NBA slate of games includes a showdown between the Philadelphia 76ers and Milwaukee Bucks. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Bucks as the 6.5-point home favorites over the 76ers.

Here's three of the best prop bets for the 76ers-Bucks game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

76ers vs Bucks Player Props

1. Giannis Antetokounmpo - Points: Over 29.5 (-116)

Nobody has more momentum than Giannis Antetokounmpo ahead of this game. The two-time NBA MVP enters this meeting as he comes off of a 50-point effort against the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday. He's hit the over on this prop six times in his last seven games and has a great shot of doing it again tonight. For starters, Antetokounmpo finished with 31 points in the only other 76ers-Bucks meeting this season. While Joel Embiid was out with an injury that game, Antetokounmpo averages 33.2 PPG whenever the two big men have met in the past. With this being the last game before the NBA All-Star Break, look for Antetokounmpo to hit the pause on a high note.

2. Bobby Portis - Rebounds: Over 7.5 (-130)

This season is Bobby Portis' first as a full-time starter, leading to him averaging a career-best 9.2 rebounds per game. There's a good chance that he can maintain that success against a Philadelphia team that's one of the worst when it comes to rebounding. It also doesn't help that the 76ers no longer have Andre Drummond and his 9.0 RPG after he left in the Ben Simmons-James Harden trade. If you need another reason to take the over here, Portis has finished with at least eight rebounds in four of his last five outings. He also had a double-double against Philadelphia earlier this year and could be in line for a similar performance tonight.

3. Tyrese Maxey - Assists: Over 4.5 (-108)

With Ben Simmons out of the picture since the start of the season, Tyrese Maxey has had his ups and downs as Philadelphia's starting point guard. He's currently averaging 4.6 assists per game, but that number has dropped recently. Maxey has averaged 2.3 APG over his last four outings and has finished with the under on this prop in each of those contests. With that being said, he has a great opportunity to get out of that rut tonight. The Bucks surrender the eighth-most assists per game this year and the fourth-most to point guards. FanDuel Sportsbook has also set the total for tonight's game at 224, which means there should be plenty of opportunities for Maxey to set up his teammates. While his recent play may raise concerns, look for him to bounce back in style against Milwaukee.
