Washington Wizards roll into Wells Fargo Center for an Eastern Conference Playoff Game against number one seeded Philadelphia 76ers.
Today’s player prop focuses on a player who will be doing work in the paint. Should come as no surprise that Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris and other 76ers big men have been playing banged up. I am looking to take advantage of that with their opposition tonight.
Rui Hachimura looked fresh in the Wizards last game against the Pacers going for 18 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists. All in a matter of 25 minutes. This is a pace up spot for both teams. The reason Hachimura’s last performance stuck out is because he is a young player who rose to the occasion when his team needed a spark before eventually routing the Pacers.
In 7 games played in the month of May, Hachimura is averaging 17 points per game. Since the All-Star Break Hachimura is averaging 15.1 points per game opposed to 12.5 prior to the break. On two days of rest Hachimura is averaging 15 points per game. In Hachimura’s career he is averaging 13 points against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Preston’s Player Prop Bet: Rui Hachimura OVER 12.5 Points (-114)
