The 2021 NBA season is in full swing. Tuesday's basketball action features a primetime matchup between the Toronto Raptors and Philadelphia 76ers.

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

Raptors vs 76ers Player Props

1. Scottie Barnes - Rebounds: Over 7.5 (-108)

Scottie Barnes has looked terrific in his first 10 games as a Raptor. He's averaged 8.5 rebounds per game in that span and shouldn't have an issue hitting the over for this prop. The 76ers are the worst rebounding team in the NBA, averaging 48.8 boards per game. To make matters worse for Philadelphia, All-NBA center Joel Embiid is out for the foreseeable future after testing positive for COVID-19. With him out of the lineup, Barnes' job is much easier. Besides, he's recorded at least eight rebounds in six of his games so far.

2. Fred VanVleet - Points: Under 18.5 (-108)

Fred VanVleet has spent the season playing point guard following Kyle Lowry's offseason departure. It's worked so far with him averaging career-highs in rebounds (5.0) and assists (7.1) while also averaging 18.7 points per game. Unfortunately, he's up against a 76ers defense that's giving up just 19.5 total PPG to opposing point guards. Not only that but the game is expected to be a low-scoring affair judging by how FanDuel Sportsbook has set the total to 210.5. At the end of the day, Philadelphia has a tougher time stopping wing players from scoring than PGs, so it wouldn't be surprising if the Raptors don't use VanVleet as their top option tonight.

3. OG Anunoby - Threes Made: Under 2.5 (-148)

The 2021-22 NBA season has been OG Anunoby's best as a Raptor, by far. Well, aside from his .344 three-point rating, which is the worst since his sophomore campaign. While he can be money from beyond the arc, Anunoby hasn't done well from long range lately. He's shot just 4-for-17 (.235) from three-point range over his last three games. Meanwhile, the 76ers have held opposing small forwards to 1.9 threes made this season — good for the fifth-best average. Toronto, as a team, hasn't shot threes all that well this season, so it's hard imagining Anunoby hitting the over in a tough matchup.
