Here's three of the best prop bets for the 76ers-Lakers game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
76ers vs Lakers Prop Bets Tonight
1. Tyrese Maxey - Points: Over 16.5 (-110)
This is a matchup made in heaven for Tyrese Maxey tonight. The young Philadelphia star is set to face a Lakers' defense that has no one fast enough to keep up with him. LA gives up the most points to opposing point guards this season (24.84) and allows 51.0 points in the paint per game (No. 27 in NBA). Maxey loves to drive to the rim whenever possible and has scored at least 17 points in four of his last five games. He is also shooting 54.5% from the floor during that span. Ride the hot hand here and back the second-year pro to keep his success going.
2. LeBron James - Points + Rebounds + Assists: Over 46.5 (-106)
LeBron James has had to put his Lakers teammates on his back in an attempt to singlehandedly carry them to the playoffs, especially over the last three games. The four-time MVP is averaging 37.3 points, 10.0 rebounds and 8.3 rebounds during that span and has cashed the over on his PRA prop every single time. James has attempted at least 25 shots in five of his last eight games and only needed 22 to gash the Philadelphia to the tune of 34 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists back on January 27. Look for the 18-time All-Star to fill up the stat sheet on Wednesday night.
3. Matisse Thybulle - Rebounds: Under 2.5 (-106)
This one may get sweaty down the stretch. Betting under 2.5 rebounds for a player that averages 25.8 minutes a night can be risky, but the numbers back it up. Matisse Thybulle has posted less than 3 rebounds in seven of his last 10 games and averages just 2.4 boards on the year. He is on the floor to disrupt perimeter shooters, which regularly forces him to stay far away from the rim. It's worth noting Thybulle only racked up 2 rebounds in 29 minutes played against the Lakers earlier this season. Expect a similar outing on Wednesday night.
