NBA Player Props Predictions 1: Joel Embiid, Sixers, Over 4.5 Assists (-158) FD

Embiid has cleared this number in 64% of games this season, and in a must-win scenario for Philly, we like Embiid to have a well-rounded game. The Heat are 13th in assists allowed per game, and Embiid is known for his scoring, but this is a passing situation.

Erik Spoelstra is one of the best coaches in the NBA, and we anticipate Spo trying to take the ball out of the Sixers’ best players’ hands. Embiid has yet to clear this number against Miami, but given the circumstances of the game, we project Embiid to pass the ball more often, making this one of the best NBA player props on the board today.

NBA Player Props Predictions 2: Clint Capela, Hawks, Under 12.5 Points (+102) FD

Clint Capela has cleared this line in all of his last matchups with the Bulls. We are fading him today. Chicago is 16th in points allowed on defense, but they are 12th in defense against centers. In a must-win game for Atlanta, we expect Capela, a role player on offense, to touch the ball less frequently than normal.

On the season, Capela has cleared this line in just 42% of games. His history against the Bulls is intriguing, but it’s also pushing this line up way too high. We expect the Hawks’ guards to have success, limiting Capela’s role in the offense today.
