Best Joel Embiid Player Props Bets vs. the New York Knicks

As the Philadelphia 76ers prepare to host the New York Knicks in a pivotal Game 4, all eyes are on Joel Embiid, the reigning MVP who has been battling through injuries to lead his team. Despite a sore knee and a case of Bell’s palsy, Embiid’s performance has been nothing short of dominant, including a 50-point explosion in Game 3. His resilience and ability to adapt his game, especially in the face of physical challenges from the Knicks, will be crucial as the 76ers aim to even the series.

Joel Embiid Over 3.5 Turnovers (+120)

Joel Embiid’s over on turnovers is a compelling pick for several reasons. Firstly, Embiid has been handling the ball extensively, and with the Knicks’ defense likely to apply pressure, there’s a higher chance of turnovers occurring. His season mean for turnovers is 3.72, and he’s hit the over on this prop 51.16% of the time during the season, indicating a tendency to go above the line. Additionally, in the last 10 games, Embiid has averaged 4.2 turnovers, which is above the line set for this game. The Knicks’ defense will be focused on Embiid, and given his usage rate and the physicality of the playoffs, it’s reasonable to expect that he might turn the ball over more as he tries to make plays under duress.

Joel Embiid Over 2.5 Steals And Blocks (+120)

Choosing the over on Embiid’s steals and blocks prop is a strategic bet, especially considering his defensive prowess and the high stakes of this playoff game. Embiid has averaged 2.72 steals and blocks combined per game over the season, which is just above the line. While his recent performance in the last 5 games shows a dip with an average of 1.2, it’s important to note that Embiid is known for stepping up in crucial moments. With the series on the line and the 76ers playing at home, where Embiid tends to perform better, there’s a strong chance he’ll be more active on the defensive end, leading to a higher number of steals and blocks. His ability to alter shots and his keen sense of timing can help him surpass the prop line as he anchors the Sixers’ defense against a Knicks team that will be aggressively looking to take a commanding series lead.
