Giannis Antetokounmpo o10.5 REB’s @ +110 ($100 to win $110)

Odds available at DraftKings at time of publishing

Giannis is averaging 11.3 rebounds per game on the year, so getting this at plus money seems great. Despite having a good rebounding team, Philly allows the 10th most rebounds to the PF position. Tonight's game will be a TNT game and like we always say, the star players are extra motivated when it’s nationally televised. We’ve seen this a million times, and I’m not changing my philosophy on that now. Giannis averaging over this number and it being a primetime game aren’t the main contributors to me placing this bet, however.

The main reason this is a must-bet (especially at plus odds) is the history Giannis has had against the Sixers. It is absolutely unreal how these stats are so good and no one is talking about this play yet today. Below, I will list every rebounding total since the 2018-2019 season along with the date played.

  • 11/9/21: 16 REB
  • 4/24/21: 14 REB
  • 4/22/21: 16 REB
  • 3/17/21: 15 REB
  • 2/22/20: 17 REB
  • 2/6/20: 20 REB
  • 12/25/19: 14 REB
  • 4/4/19: 13 REB
  • 3/17/19: 16 REB
  • 10/24/18: 18 REB

As you can see, Giannis has hit this in 10 straight games versus Philly, never grabbing fewer than 13 rebounds. On top of that, he is averaging 15.8 rebounds per game against them in that span. Only needing 11 for plus odds seems like a steal. Giannis is coming off of a 50-point game where he also brought down 14 rebounds. This is the last game before the All-Star break, so I imagine a motivated Giannis to end the first half of the season on a high note.
