1u - Darius Garland o23.5 PTS (-118) (Bet $118 to win $100)

Garland has been phenomenal this whole season but especially as of late. He has hit this prop in 10 of his last 11 games and people simply aren’t talking about it enough. In this 11 game span, he is averaging over 27 points a night and has shown to be very effective vs Philadelphia.

With Allen remaining out Garland has stepped up even more than he did to open the season and he was no slouch then. Embiid has been questionable on defense as of recent but has proven to be effective against the future of the year in Evan Mobley which leaves Garland.

Bet $10, Win $200 if EITHER TEAM hits a 3-Pointer

Garland has faced off vs Philly twice. He has scored 26 and 27 points in those two games. More assuring is he has shot 22 and 23 times in those two games. There is a world where Garland doesn’t even need to be that efficient but just with volume alone can get us there. In a game like this that projects to remain close I love the potential volume he could see. I don’t think 25+ shot attempts is out of the realm of possibility. This game's spread is only -4 in favor of Philly. If the game plays out like that you can expect another 35+ minute outing from Darius. Philly defends point guards on the season well but haven’t proven to be effective against Garland. Besides that, I don’t see a player outside of Mobley and Garland who should see high volume. Perhaps Levert now that he’s back and playing but he will likely still have his minutes monitored and he notoriously struggles against the Sixers. This streak for Garland won’t last long because it’s tough to maintain this type of production but I like it to at least go one more night for us.
