Houston Rockets vs Philadelphia 76ers Pick

1u - Alperen Sengun o3.5 1Q PTS (-119) Bet $119 to collect $229 Caesars has the best odds, click here to bet

Sengun is a guy who I feel like doesn’t get enough minutes. This Houston team isn’t really playing for anything and should be feeding minutes to their young guys to get as comfortable as possible in the league.

Houston Rockets vs Philadelphia 76ers Prediction

Sengun may only play 26 minutes a game but on a night like tonight against Joel Embiid his services will be needed to limit the big man. Sengun is a great talent scoring 15.2 PPG even with his limited role. For tonight I’m too scared of a blowout so I like this first-quarter prop. Sengun has hit this in five straight games averaging 7.0 first-quarter points in that span. We just need two buckets, we don’t need him to do a Wilt Chamberlain game impression.

Houston should force looks to him in hopes of getting Embiid in foul trouble. Sengun has a very crafty game and although Embiid is an outstanding defender he definitely has his moments on the defensive end he looks lackadaisical. In the last three games for Philly, we saw Embiid allow Adams, Capela, and Mobley all hit this prop. Sengun is a scorer, two buckets is very in play and this is a good price. Let's roll!
