The 76ers are traveling to San Antonio for a road matchup vs the Spurs tonight. The Sixers just blew a 24 point lead to the Clippers, so should come motivated and ready to bounce back. They will be down one of their best players, Danny Green…..Just kidding. Seth Curry will be absent from tonight's matchup and that is quite a factor in today’s prop.
@RyanPropz - 76ers vs. Spurs Player Prop Pick
76ers vs. Spurs
TYRESE MAXEY O17.5 POINTS @ -115
Of course so much offense will run through Joel Embiid, but Tyrese Maxey appears to be the largest beneficiary when Seth sits. In the 4 games that Seth has missed, Tyrese has crushed this line four times. It is not a very large sample size, but him averaging 24.3 points in these games was significant enough for me to feel comfortable locking this in. Maxey has averaged 37.5 min and 20.3 FG attempts in these games. Hard to lay off a 17.5 point prop with that kind of usage.
Luckily for us, Maxey is also in a great matchup. The Spurs allow the 7th most PPG, the 9th worst opponent FG%, and play at the 6th fastest pace in the league. More specifically to Tyrese, The Spurs allow the 6th most PPG to point guards in the NBA at 24.36 a game. I am loving the second year guard to go over his points tonight.
