Best NBA prop bets today for Sixers vs. Cavaliers (Back Joel Embiid)

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Philadelphia 76ers are battling for position in the top half of the Eastern Conference, making Wednesday’s game a must-watch for NBA fans.

Since we’ll be dialed in on this game, why not bet some props as well?

There are plenty of stars to choose from between Joel Embiid, James Harden, Donovan Mitchell and Darius Garland, these players have caught my eye in the betting market tonight:

Sixers vs. Cavaliers best NBA prop bets today

  • Joel Embiid OVER 32.5 Points
  • Evan Mobley UNDER 9.5 Rebounds

Joel Embiid OVER 32.5 Points

This is a favorable matchup for Embiid, an MVP candidate, since Jarrett Allen is out of the lineup with an eye injury.

Allen would’ve drawn the assignment on Embiid, but instead he will work against the slimmer Evan Mobley, the slow-footed Robin Lopez and others in the Cavs frontcourt.

Embiid is averaging 33.4 points per game this season and has scored 33+ in five of his last sixx games. Go OVER for him tonight.

Evan Mobley UNDER 9.5 Rebounds

Even with Allen out, I think Evan Mobley is overvalued in this prop on Wednesday night.

The Cavs youngster has failed to pick up double-digit boards in four straight games, and now he has to deal with Embiid down low.

That could lead to Mobley getting in foul trouble, but Embiid also loves to step outside, which may take Mobley away from easy opportunities on the glass.

He could still have a good game, but double-digit boards isn’t in the cards tonight.
