Thursday's NBA slate of Playoff games includes an exciting Game 6 showdown between the Philadelphia 76ers and Toronto Raptors. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the 76ers as the 1.5-point road favorites over the Raptors.

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

76ers vs Raptors Player Props

1. Tyrese Maxey - Points: Under 18.5 (-110)

The Raptors have made adjustments when it comes to defending point guard Tyrese Maxey during this series and it has worked to a tee. The second-year pro has scored no more than 12 points in either of the last two games and is shooting just 34.6% from the floor in that span. His drives to the rim are more contested than before and he has lost his touch from the perimeter, too. After draining 8 three-pointers in the first two games against Toronto, he has gone 2 for 11 from beyond the arc. In a game of this magnitude, look for head coach Doc Rivers to lean on his veteran players.

2. Gary Trent Jr. - Points: Over 18.5 (-118)

Gary Trent Jr. scored 24 points in Games 3 and 4 of this series before a poor shooting effort in Game 5 led to only 16 points (5-of-14). Backing his over in this one still makes a lot of sense. Trent drove to the rim 11 times on Monday and is becoming much more than a perimeter shooter thanks to the absence of Fred VanVleet. He is also a lock to see around 40 minutes and will feed off the home crowd. Trent has also attempted 25 three-pointers over the last three games. That is a ton of volume for a player that nails them at a rate of 38.3% this season.

3. Pascal Siakam - Assists: Over 5.5 (-132)

It became clear last time out that head coach Nick Nurse trusts Pascal Siakam to run the offense without VanVleet available to play. The Cameroon native racked up 7 assists on a total of 15 opportunities. Siakam has also posted 6 or more assists in 10 of the 15 games he has played without his starting point guard this season. In an elimination game, Toronto almost has no choice but to put their playoff future in their hands of their best player. Siakam has the Philadelphia defense on its heels as of late, so look for that trend to continue on Thursday night.
