The Philadelphia 76ers take on the Washington Wizards in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday night, and this could be a high-scoring game since Washington ranks 29th in the NBA in defensive rating. 

That’s led to me taking two Philly props in this game, including a 3-point prop for guard De’Anthony Melton.

Let’s dive into these plays: 

Sixers vs. Wizards best NBA prop bets

  • Tobias Harris OVER 16.5 points
  • De’Anthony Melton OVER 2.5 3-pointers made

Tobias Harris OVER 16.5 points

This is a buy-low spot on Tobias Harris, who has failed to clear 16.5 points in five straight games. 

Earlier this season, Harris dropped 18 against the Wizards on just 11 shots, and I think this game could turn into a track meet since Washington is No. 2 in the NBA in pace. 

Everyone the Sixers should see a boost against a weak Washington defense, and Harris is still getting double-digit volume in his shot attempts. Back him to go OVER tonight. 

De’Anthony Melton OVER 2.5 3-pointers made

Over his last four games, Melton has made 14 shots from beyond the arc, hitting at least three 3-pointers in each of those matchups. 

The Sixers guard has nine games this season with at least three three made shots from beyond the arc, and he’s done it eight times in his last 10 appearances. 

Washington allows nearly 13 made 3s per game, so I expect Melton to get his fair share of looks on Wednesday night.
