The Philadelphia 76ers are still dealing with injuries to its top two players as their five-game road trip continues Tuesday night as short underdogs against the struggling Golden State Warriors. Philadelphia has dropped the first three games of the road trip after getting blown out by Portland Monday night with Tyrese Maxey (ankle) and Joel Embiid (knee) sidelined. 

Both are questionable against the Warriors, which are coming off back-to-back one-point losses to start a three-game homestand. Golden State went two overtimes with the Lakers Saturday night before falling, 145-144. 

Here are some prop bets to consider for Tuesday’s matchup.

76ers vs. Warriors best NBA prop bets

  • Philadelphia 76ers 1st half money line
  • Dramond Green OVER 7.5 rebounds
  • Klay Thompson UNDER 3.5 three-pointers made

Philadelphia 76ers 1st half money line

Philadelphia will be flipped to a favorite for this bet if they have good news on the injury front, but it's still a good bet with the questionable tags to Maxey and Embiid.

Philadelphia is No. 7 in the NBA in first-half scoring this season (60.4 points per game), but the real value comes from Golden State's sub-par defense. The Warriors rank No. 24 in overall defensive rating and are 20th in the league in first-half scoring defense. You also have to factor in Golden State's energy level after playing and losing, in back-to-back one-point games.

In Saturday's marathon loss to the Lakers, all five Warriors' starters played over 40 minutes and only one player on the bench (guard Brandin Podziemski) played more than 15. Look for Philadelphia to jump on that early.

Dramond Green UNDER 7.5 rebounds

Green is only averaging 5.9 rebounds per game this season and hit this number once in his last six games, dating back to December before he was suspended.

The only time Green has recorded eight or more rebounds in a game was Saturday when he played a season-high 46 minutes grabbed 14 rebounds and finished two points shy of a triple-double.

Green is only averaging 26.4 minutes per game this season and the number looks a tad inflated for his role in a Warriors lineup with four players averaging at least 5.4 rebounds a night.

Klay Thompson UNDER 3.5 three-pointers made

Thompson is shooting just 38.5% from beyond the arc this season, which is tied for a career-low with his 2022 performance when he came back after missing two years with knee and Achilles injuries.

Thompson got plenty of looks over a season-high 47 minutes against the Lakers, going just 6-of-17 from downtown. Prior to that loss, Thompson had hit this number just once in three contests and is shooting just 20-of-55 from 3-point range in his last six games overall. Now, he faces a Philadelphia defense that is No. 1 in defending the perimeter, allowing opponents to shoot just 34.1% on triples this season.
