Wednesday's NBA slate of playoff games includes a Game 3 showdown between the Toronto Raptors and Philadelphia 76ers. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Sixers as a 1.5-point road favorite over the Raptors with the total at 217 points.
Here's three of the best prop bets for the 76ers-Raptors game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
76ers vs Raptors Game 3 Player Props
1. First Basket - Joel Embiid (+320)
The Raptors had no player or rotation able to slow MVP finalist Joel Embiid in Game 2. The 76ers' powerful interior force scored 31 points, and 12 came at the free throw line. Take a shot for a half-unit or less on a better than 3/1 prop to start the game with profit and Embiid to score the first basket (score first points, includes free throws).
2. Tyrese Maxey - Points: Over 18.5
Tyrese Maxey cashed in a pair of prop bets for us in Game 1, and we outlined how his production and long range shooting has soared. Maxey scored 38 points in Game 1, and added 23 more in Game 2 while making at least three 3-pointers in each contest. With his three-point shooting better than 50% over the past month, ride Maxey to continue his scoring surge.
3. Tobias Harris - Points: Under 15.5 (-118)
Tobias Harris has played and scored above expectations in the first two playoff games. The Sixers forward scored 26 and 20 points in a pair of double-digit Sixers wins while shooting better than 63% FG in both contests. Philly's fourth leading scorer managed just 8 points in the April 7 road loss at Toronto, and a regression in scoring is expected in this tougher Game 3 road environment.
