The Toronto Raptors are looking to make one more step towards history on Thursday night, as they need two more wins to become the first team to erase a 3-0 deficit in the NBA playoffs. 

Toronto’s defense has flipped the script in this series, holding the Sixers to less than 110 points in each of the last three games. Now, with the series back in Toronto, can the Raptors pull off an upset win?

We have Game 6 previewed here, but let’s get into some player props to bet, with all odds via WynnBET

Best NBA Prop Bets for Sixers vs. Raptors

  • Joel Embiid UNDER 27.5 Points (-115)
  • OG Anunoby 3+ 3-Pointers (+110)
  • Precious Achiuwa 16+ Points and Rebounds (-125)

Can an underdog come back and win in the first round? Check out the latest episode of Bet & Breakfast for our picks!

Joel Embiid UNDER 27.5 Points (-115)

Joel Embiid is dealing with a torn ligament in his thumb, and he’s gone under this number in three of the five games in this series, including the team’s last two matchups. 

Embiid is just 14-for-31 from the field in the last two games, and he is starting to come back to what he did in the regular season against this Raptors team, where they forced him into some rough shooting nights. 

The return of Scottie Barnes has given the Raptors another lengthy defender to throw at Embiid, and I think 27.5 points is just too high for him in Game 6. 

OG Anunoby 3+ 3-Pointers (+110)

OG Anunoby has been the most consistent scorer for the Raptors in this series, and with Fred VanVleet in doubt for this game, I expect another high-volume shooting game for OG. 

Over the last four games of this series, Anunoby has cleared this number twice, and he’s taken seven, nine, seven and nine 3-pointers in the process. 

Holy volume. Grabbing OG at plus odds to hit three 3-pointers seems like a steal if he continues to take this many shots from deep. 

Precious Achiuwa 16+ Points and Rebounds (-125)

Precious Achiuwa came off the bench and dominated in Game 5, scoring 17 points and grabbing seven rebounds for the Raptors. 

Achiuwa has only cleared this line twice in the series, but he’s seeing consistent minutes (24 or more in each game) and he’s put up 13, 13, 26, nine and 24 points and rebounds through the first five games. 

I think this is a solid spot to buy low on Achiuwa, especially with how well he played in Game 5.
