Wednesday's NBA slate of games includes an Atlantic Division clash between the New York Knicks and Philadelphia 76ers at 7:30 p.m. EST on ESPN. FanDuel Sportsbook has the 76ers as a 10.5-point favorite over the Knicks, who have lost five straight games and nine of their last 10 overall.

Here's three of the best prop bets for the Knicks-Sixers game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Knicks vs 76ers Player Props

1. RJ Barrett - Points: Over 22.5 (-110)

The Sixers got a road romp over the Knicks 125-109 at MSG on Feb. 27. RJ Barrett had 24 points in defeat the defeat. The 21-year-old also poured in the 46 points in defeat to Miami the previous game. His true shooting percentage is getting better near league average at 51.3% with a higher usage rate. Barrett has eclipsed this points total in five of his last six games, and will be counted on for more scoring again as a big underdog.

2. Joel Embiid - Points: Under 30.5 (-104)

Look at FanDuel Sportsbook's NBA futures and you'll see Joel Embiid holding steady as the MVP favorite. Embiid had 37 points against the Knicks Feb. 27. But 23 of those came from the free throw line with an amazing 27 attempts from the charity stripe. In fact, Embiid has scored at least 34 points in four straight games to raise his average to a league-leading 29.8 PPG. It can't be that easy every game, and the Knicks do rank top-10 in 2-point percentage shooting defense. Knicks center Mitchell Robinson fouled out last game against Philly and played just 16 minutes. He'll be better and provide more resistance in the quick rematch.

3. James Harden - Made Threes: Over 2.5 (-120)

Harden has scored 27 and 29 points since arriving in Philadelphia via trade. He scored those points on limited shots including making 8-of-14 against the Knicks Feb. 27 and 3-of-7 from long range. Now back home in his debut at the Wells Fargo Center, Harden will shoot more, and make more threes against an average Knicks perimeter defense.
