The Philadelphia 76ers are looking to take advantage of one of the worst defenses in the NBA on Monday night when they host the Washington Wizards.
Washington has been brutal in this rebuilding season, and it should open up solid prop nights for players like Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey. I have a play for one of those Sixers stars in this matchup.

Here are my three favorite prop bets for Monday’s contest:
Wizards vs. Sixers best NBA prop bets today
- Tyrese Maxey OVER 32.5 Points, Rebounds and Assists
- Tobias Harris OVER 15.5 Points
- Kyle Kuzma OVER 20.5 Points
Tyrese Maxey OVER 32.5 Points, Rebounds and Assists
Maxey has fallen short of this line just one time all season, and I expect him to have a big game against a Washington team that ranks 29th in the NBA in defensive rating.
The Wizards also play at the fastest pace in the NBA, so there should be plenty of possessions to go around. After tallying just 23 PRA against the Raptors, Maxey bounced back with 37 PRA on Saturday against the Phoenix Suns.
He should have a strong showing in this game.
Tobias Harris OVER 15.5 Points
I love this play for Tobias Harris against a weak Washington defense.
Harris has at least 15 points in every game this season, and the Sixers forward has taken double-digit shots in each of his last four games.
While I am worried about Harris keeping up his efficiency (64.9 percent from the field 44.4 percent from 3), I do think he gets enough looks against a porous defense to clear this prop.
Kyle Kuzma OVER 20.5 Points
Kyle Kuzma is 5-for-5 on clearing 20.5 points this season, and he’s done it because of the high volume of shots he’s getting this season.
Kuz has taken at least 15 shots in every game and is averaging 22.8 points per game on 19.8 field goal attempts this season.
Washington’s offense is just 20th in the league, but that’s not the fault of the former first-round pick. I expect him to keep up his high-scoring season tonight.
