Best NBA Prop Picks: Lock In This Expert's Best NBA Prop Bets for Wednesday

It's Day 2 of the NBA Play-In Tournament.

This time, it's the Eastern Conference matchups.

The Heat will face the 76ers in a 7-8 matchup. The winner will play in a seven-game series against the Knicks in the first round. The loser will play the winner of the 9-10 matchup for a chance at the 8-seed.

The Hawks and Bulls will play a 9-10 matchup. However, the loser of this matchup will go home, and their season will be over.

Let's look at a few player props for tonight's games in the NBA.

April 17 Best NBA Player Props

Joel Embiid Under 4.5 Assists (-104) CLICK HERE TO SEE WHICH SPORTSBOOK HAS THE BEST ODDS

While Joel Embiid has hit this line in 64% of games this season, he's struggled to add assists against the Miami Heat. In an early April game, Embiid played more than 30 minutes against the Heat and earned just three assists.

Embiid earned just two assists per game in two games against the Heat last season. He hasn't hit this line against the Heat in two seasons.

You might be asking why Embiid has struggled to add assists against the Heat since last year.

That's easy. The Heat rank second in the NBA in assists allowed to centers this season. Therefore, we'll back Embiid's Under for assists tonight.

Tyler Herro Over 4.5 Rebounds (-148) CLICK HERE TO SEE WHICH SPORTSBOOK HAS THE BEST ODDS

Tyler Herro has averaged 6.5 rebounds per game against the 76ers this season. In a road game against the 76ers earlier this season in February, Herro tallied seven rebounds with seven assists and scored 23 points.

He's also added at least five rebounds in 69% of games this season and has hit this line in eight of his last 10 games. In the month, he's added more than five rebounds per game despite having limits earlier in his return.

It's more likely Herro will play 35 minutes tonight. If he gets 35 minutes, another seven-rebound game could be in store.

Trae Young Under 3.5 Rebounds (-145) CLICK HERE TO SEE WHICH SPORTSBOOK HAS THE BEST ODDS

In two games against the Bulls this season, Trae Young has added just 2.5 rebounds per game. At the United Center, he played 40 minutes against the Bulls and managed just two rebounds in that game.

Young will be good for assists and will probably drop around 17-23 points. But he's not going to crash the glass hunting for rebounds.

Young has added at least four rebounds in only 33% of games this season. He's also hit this line in just two of his last ten games and will face a Bulls squad that ranks fourth in rebounds allowed to point guards this season.

Don't count on Young on the glass.
