The Toronto Raptors and the Philadelphia 76ers enter a crucial Game 5 in Philadelphia, as the Sixers could close out the series with a win. 

Toronto battled to win Game 4, but the team’s overtime loss in Game 3 looms large as the Raptors need four straight wins to advance to the second round. 

Here are a trio of player props that I am eyeing for this game, with all odds via WynnBET:  

Best Prop Bets for Raptors vs. Sixers Game 5

  • Pascal Siakam OVER 24.5 Points (+100)
  • Tyrese Maxey OVER 18.5 Points (-110)
  • OG Anunoby UNDER 5.5 Rebounds (-130)

Pascal Siakam OVER 24.5 Points (+100)

The Toronto Raptors will be without guard Fred VanVleet in Game 5, which means Pascal Siakam is going to have an even bigger role offensively. 

While Siakam has cleared this line just once in the series (34 points in Game 4), the volume has been there for him. 

The All-Star forward has taken 19, 16, 20 and 18 shots through the first four games of this series, and he said he needs to be more aggressive going forward. 

I love getting this prop at even money, especially since Siakam has been the focal point on offense in this series. 

Tyrese Maxey OVER 18.5 Points (-110)

Tyrese Maxey took a step back in Game 4, scoring just 11 points on 3-of-12 shooting, but I think he bounces back in Philly, where he averaged 30.5 points in Games 1 and 2. 

Maxey is a lock for double-digit field goal attempts, and with Joel Embiid dealing with a torn ligament in his thumb, I think the Sixer could rely on Maxey a bit more in Game 5. 

Maxey has cleared this in three of four games this series and six of his last eight games. \

OG Anunoby UNDER 5.5 Rebounds (-130)

OG Anunoby has been solid scoring the ball in this series, but he hasn’t made the same impacto on the glass, going under this number in the last three games. 

OG averaged 5.5 rebounds per game in the regular season, but the Raptors are grabbing just 47.5 percent of the available rebounds in this series. 

I’ll fade OG on the glass again, even though the -130 juice isn’t ideal.
