Gary Trent Jr. Over 17.5 Total Points
Coming off of an 18-point performance against a tough Miami Heat defence, bet the over on Gary Trent Jr’s point total against the Sixers.
The Philadelphia 76ers have possibly the worst defensive backcourt in the NBA between James Harden and Tyrese Maxey. Neither player provides valuable minutes defensively whether it is sticking to their man on-ball, shifting on help defence, or getting their hands in passing lanes, which will inevitable provide Raptors sharpshooter Trent Jr. with ample opportunity to score.
GTJ has averaged 18.5 points per game through the first four games of the NBA season, providing great shooting from the perimeter, while still finding his way into the paint to make crafty finishes at the rim. Trent Jr. has showcased tremendous growth to his game in each season he has played, expanding his offensive repertoire to make him a more dangerous scorer.
With his jump shot looking automatic and matching up against a weak defensive backcourt, the Over on Gary Trent Jr. point total is a terrific wager to make.
James Harden Over 6.5 Rebounds
One of the best rebounding guards in the NBA, James Harden uses his large frame to push his way through the paint and coral the ball off the glass. Eighth all-time in NBA history for total triple doubles, Harden has proven himself as a great board crasher in the NBA, able to battle amongst the trees inside the paint and come away with the rock.
Playing against a Raptors squad that has struggled on the glass over the past few seasons, look for Harden to exploit his matchup and grab Over 6.5 rebounds in the 6ix. Competing against smaller lineups rolled out by the Raptors, the Beard will have ample opportunities to grab the ball off the rebound and begin to push the fast-break as a result.
Playing alongside dominant interior force, Joel Embiid, Harden will get plenty of chances to attack the glass on the offensive end as so much attention from the Raptors post-players will be placed on the big man, Embiid.
Look for Harden to stuff the stat sheet against the Raptors, putting up not just great scoring numbers, but rebounding as well. Bet the Over on Harden’s rebound total and get in on this winning NBA player prop bet.
Tyrese Maxey Under 3.5 Assists
One of the top scorers on an offensively stacked 76ers squad, Tyrese Maxey has looked like a future leader for his team. With explosive speed off the dribble and an improved three-point shot, Maxey has provided terrific scoring numbers for the 76ers so far this season, but has underdelivered when it comes to assisting his teammates.
Averaging just 2.8 assists per game, Maxey has put much of his focus on scoring the ball rather than setting the table for his teammates on the floor. Sharing a backcourt with elite facilitator James Harden has been a big part in Maxey’s low distributing numbers, shifting his role into a scorer rather than an all-around player.
Last season Maxey averaged 4.3 assists per game, but with a noticeable decrease in plays called that require the ball to be in Maxey’s hands, look for his assist totals to stay relatively low as he focuses on eating, himself, rather than setting the table for others.
Bet the Under on Maxey’s assist total and watch your funds rise while his assist total remains low.

Siakam has continued to improve his game by leaps and bounds each offseason, with his playmaking now one of the most dangerous parts of his game to go along with a natural ability to snatch rebounds as well as his proven scoring ability.
Whether it’s by assists or rebounds to go along with a high-scoring performance, Siakam will find no shortage of moments that could lead to him bringing his team one step closer to victory, en route to another statistically strong performance.
