76ers @ Rockets


PLAYER: Joel Embiid

BET: 🔥 OVER 26.5 points BetMGM  (-115)

Last but not least is Joel "The Process" Embiid, who we have putting up 30 points in a win over the Houston Rockets.

With the line for this matchup set at 15 points in favor of the Sixers, it appears the books are predicting a blowout, which would impact on Embiid's chances of going big.

But in our preview of tonight's games, we showcased our model's pick of the Rockets to cover, which in turn would help this prop bet cash.
