Tonight, we'll get one of the most important matchups of the NBA season. The Philadelphia 76ers and Milwaukee Bucks are tied for second place in the East and are both just one game out of the No. 1 seed.

There's a lot on the line tonight and Peter Dewey has you covered with a game preview.

However, let's look at some props in this showdown.

All odds listed are via WynnBET.

Best Prop Bets For Bucks vs. 76ers

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo OVER 29.5 Points (-115)
  • Jrue Holiday OVER 6.5 Assists (+100)
  • Joel Embiid 2+ 3-Pointers (+115)

Giannis Antetokounmpo OVER 29.5 Points (-115)

Anytime I can take a reasonable line with Antetokounmpo, I’m going to do it. He’s cleared this line in seven of his last 10 games. Since 2019, he’s scored at least 30 points in five of the eight games he’s played against the 76ers.

Antetokounmpo’s speed will be the key tonight. Whether it’s Tobias Harris, Matisse Thybulle or Joel Embiid guarding him, he’ll need to attack quickly to get his points. With not a lot of juice here, I like the prop.

Jrue Holiday OVER 6.5 Assists (+100)

Getting plus money on this prop feels fantastic. Holiday has cleared this line in six of his last seven games. He’s the clear point guard of this team and can get a lot of easy assists in transition or just by giving the ball up to Antetokounmpo.

Holiday won’t see the toughest defender on the floor, Matisse Thybulle, for a majority of the night. That means he can run free and get the offense going.

Joel Embiid 2+ 3-Pointers Made (+115)

In the last 10 games, Embiid is attempting 3.5 treys per game. He’s getting decent volume behind the arc and is shooting 40%. Embiid made three 3-pointers in his only other matchup with the Bucks.

In his career against the Bucks, Embiid averages two made 3-pointers per contest. With Harden taking a back seat in the offense, Embiid has the space to operate from anywhere on the floor. This is a matchup he’s routinely succeeded in, so I will trust him to do it again.
