The No. 1 seeds in both conferences will square off tonight as the Los Angeles Lakers travel to face the Philadelphia 76ers. With Los Angeles boasting a 10-0 road record and the 76ers being 9-1 at home, something will have to give as MVP contenders on both sides of the court hope to earn the win.

With that in mind, here are the three best prop bets for this Lakers-76ers clash, per odds from FanDuel Sportsbook.

76ers vs Lakers Prop Bets

1. Ben Simmons - Points: Under 12.5 (-104)

76ers guard Ben Simmons hasn't exactly lit up the scoreboard this season, averaging a career-low 12.8 points per game so far along with a career high in turnovers (3.7 per contest). Coming into this game, he's only scored 13-plus points in six of his last eight games. Against a Laker defense that's allowing the second-fewest points per game in the league (104.5), don't expect Simmons to finally have a scoring breakthrough.

2. Joel Embiid - Assists: Over 2.5 (-108)

Joel Embiid is one of the league's MVP favorites as Philadelphia's heart and soul on both ends of the floor. The big man has already totaled 3-plus assists in half of his games this year, and he's sure to draw extra attention from Los Angeles on Wednesday. That puts him in prime position to draw double teams and create open looks for his teammates. giving him a great chance to hit the over.

3. Anthony Davis - Points: Under 23.5 (-118)

Anthony Davis has cooled off as an MVP frontrunner, thanks to his averaging an uncharacteristically low 21.8 PPG, which is his fewest since the 2013-14 season. The Lakers may rely on their forward if they're to beat this talented 76ers team, but he's failed to score over 20 points in six of his last seven games. With Embiid sure to lock down the paint, it'll make Davis' scoring night difficult, especially with his 3-point shooting (25%) taking a dive over the last two weeks.
