Hawks at 76ers

Unfortunately, deciding whether to take the over or under on some props for the 76ers is dependent on Joel Embiid’s health. He’s questionable tonight with a lingering knee injury after playing through it Sunday and posting 39 points and nine boards in 38 minutes of action. Make sure to check the final injury report prior to locking in picks.

Trae Young OVER 28.5 points
Young has been absolutely dominant in the playoffs thus far, leading his team to a 4-1 Round 1 victory over the Knicks and stealing Game 1 in Philly to open up a 1-0 lead in the Hawks’ second-round series. His team is 5-1, and that’s in large part to his 30.2 points per game. Atlanta will want to keep its foot on the gas against the top-seeded Sixers in tonight’s Game 2, and that should mean plenty of offensive firepower from Young. Give me the over.

Tyrese Maxey UNDER 7.5 points
I won’t commit to Maxey’s prop until Embiid’s health is determined, but if Embiid plays, I’ll take the under. If he sits, I’ll take the over. Maxey is a capable scorer who’s eclipsed this prop in two of his last three and four of his last seven games, but in two of those games, Embiid was out.

Seth Curry OVER 14.5 points
Curry is on a heater across his last four games. In that span, he’s posted point totals of 30, 21, and 15 while canning 11 triples on 54/44/100 shooting. I’ll take the over regardless of Embiid’s health, but if the big man sits, Curry is an easy bet to score 15+ in tonight’s matchup.

Clippers at Jazz

Kawhi Leonard OVER 28.5 points
Leonard is coming off a blistering seven-game series with Dallas in which he averaged 32.1 points and eclipsed the 28.5-point threshold four times. The most impressive part of this stretch of scoring? He did it on better than 60 percent from the floor (61.2% to be exact). Leonard is playing like a man possessed right now, and if he wants his team to advance past the top-seeded Jazz, he’ll need to keep providing elite offense. I’m willing to bet the over.

Donovan Mitchell UNDER 29.5 points
Mitchell has been big since returning to the lineup, scoring 30, 30, and 29 points across his last three games. He barely eked out the over in his last two, but those contests were against Memphis (12th most points allowed to SGs this season). The matchup against the Clippers (24th most points allowed to SGs) will be a bit more difficult, and LA should be committed to stopping Spida, easily the team’s most potent scoring threat. I’ll take the under.

Paul George UNDER 24.5 points
“Pandemic P” has certainly done his best to put his disgraceful moniker out of commission, but his efforts in the Clippers’ recent games haven’t come by way of scoring in droves. Across his last four games, PG13 has averaged 21.3 points, 9.5 boards and 6.3 assists to provide well-rounded efforts while failing to score at least 25 points in all four of those contests (and five of his last seven). George should make his presence felt in this game, but I’m not counting on him doing so by surpassing this point prop. I’m going with the under.

Nicolas Batum OVER 8.5 points
Batum has been playing small-ball center for the Clippers recently, making four straight starts at the five heading into this series. Despite Rudy Gobert’s dominance as a defender, the Jazz have struggled with big men who can shoot threes, which will be advantageous for Batum tonight. On the season, Utah surrendered 1.21 threes to opposing centers – third most in the NBA. Batum nailed 1.6 per game at a 40.4% clip on the season and averaged 8.1 points in the process. In a highly favorable matchup, I like the over.
