The Miami Heat will play the second night of a back-to-back on Monday night against a Philadelphia 76ers team that is already down Joel Embiid and may be down Tobias Harris (questionable).

This is a huge game for the Heat, as they are tied with the same record with Philly in the Eastern Conference standings.

Can Bam Adebayo and company pick up the win? With uncertainty on the injury front on both sides, here are a few prop bets to consider for this Eastern Conference battle: 

Heat vs. Sixers best NBA prop bets 

  • Bam Adebayo OVER 19.5 points
  • Jimmy Butler UNDER 32.5 points, rebounds and assists

Bam Adebayo OVER 19.5 points

Adebayo hit a game-winning 3-pointer to beat the Detroit Pistons on Sunday, and he’s scored 20 or more points in back-to-back games after some down scoring numbers earlier in the month. 

Bam is averaging 19.9 points per game, but I love him in this matchup against a smaller Philly frontcourt after Mo Bamba. 

The Heat big man torched the Sixers for 23 points on 9-of-14 shooting the last time they played, and after Jimmy Butler missed yesterday’s game, I wouldn’t be shocked to see Bam shoulder a major load on offense tonight. 

Jimmy Butler UNDER 32.5 points, rebounds and assists

Butler missed the win on Sunday, and I’m fading him in this spot against his former team. 

First off, Miami may not need a heroic performance from Butler to win tonight, and it’s worth noting that the Heat star is not at 100 percent entering this game. 

Butler has failed to clear 32.5 points, rebounds and assists in four of his last five games, and he’s averaging 21.4 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game (31.7 PRA) on the season. 

This number is a little higher than I’d like in what may be a slow-paced game.
