Monday's NBA slate of Playoff games includes an exciting Game 5 showdown between the Toronto Raptors and Philadelphia 76ers. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the 76ers as the 8-point home favorites over the Raptors.
Here's three of the best prop bets for the Raptors-76ers game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Raptors vs 76ers Player Props
1. Tobias Harris - Rebounds: Over 8.5 (-108)
Tobias Harris has stepped up his game since the playoffs began. The 29-year-old has posted double-digit rebounds in each of his last three games and has a great shot to do so once again on Monday night. Joel Embiid's thumb injury will likely cause the big man to rely on his teammates to grab a few more boards than usual. Keep in mind the Raptors are also tied for the seventh-highest offensive rebounding percentage allowed in the NBA (24.4%). Harris is a lock to see 40-plus minutes in this game, which makes betting on the over in this situation worth the risk.
2. OG Anunoby - Points: Over 17.5 (-116)
The Raptors will be without starting point guard Fred VanVleet in Game 5 and someone is going to have to step up from a scoring perspective. The idea of OG Anunoby balling out with a 18-plus point performance is certainly realistic. After all, the former Indiana standout has already accomplished that feat three times in this series. The only thing holding him back in Game 4 was some early foul trouble. It's worth noting the 76ers also give up the 10th-most points to opposing small forwards this season (21.9). Bettors can feel comfortable backing a player that is shooting 50.0% from the floor this postseason.
3. Pascal Siakam - Assists: Under 5.5 (+104)
Bettors to look at Pascal Siakam's assists prop due to the absence of Toronto's starting point guard, but he averages only 2.9 assists per game across 91 career contests without VanVleet active. Siakam has also failed to rack up over 5 assists in four of his last seven games without VanVleet on the floor this season. The 76ers line up as a tough matchup considering the fact that they have allowed the seventh-fewest opponent assists per game in the NBA (23.5). That number dips to 3.59 when looking at opposing power forwards (No. 11 in NBA). Expect Siakam to focus on his scoring in this must-win game.
