Only three games adorn Thursday’s NBA schedule. However, the nationally televised game between the Utah Jazz and Philadelphia 76ers is must-see TV. Both teams carry extended winning streaks into the day and will look to make an early-season statement against a contender from the opposing conference. The revamped Awesemo OddsShopper Tool is the perfect resource to help find the best NBA player props and betting picks for tonight’s Jazz – 76ers matchup. Tonight Awesemo has multiple must-bet projections for 76ers centerpiece, Joel Embiid.
With help from OddsShopper, the following column aims to find optimal odds and discusses some positive ROI prop bets for Embiid in tonight’s matchup.

With OddsShopper, finding the best NBA betting player props is fast and simple. All users must do is filter the prop selections, sort the page and find the best pick to bet. The process is extremely quick and highly effective. Try out the tool for yourself tonight with the three featured Embiid props below.
Under 25.5 Points (-106, FanDuel)
Embiid enters Thursday night’s game averaging 24.5 points per game on the season. It makes sense that the majority of sportsbooks in the NBA player props market list his points prop line at that same number. However, OddsShopper helpfully points towards a deviation from that line. OddsShopper is looking to hop on the under on the alternate line of 25.5 total points for Embiid tonight.
While Embiid enters the day off of three games in which he has scored 28 points or more, neither opponent had a defensive stalwart like Jazz center Rudy Gobert lingering in the paint. Embiid faces a much tougher task tonight and is also likely due for some regression on his shooting percentages compared to the past few games. OddsShopper pegs him for 23.92 points in Thursday’s matchup. The resulting expected ROI on this bet at the inflated line is 15%.

Under 10.5 Rebounds (+100, Caesars)
OddsShopper is also keen on betting under 10.5 total rebounds for Embiid in tonight’s game. Once again, the presence of Gobert for Utah is a major factor when handicapping how effective Embiid will be on the glass. While Embiid is averaging 11.1 boards per game coming in, Gobert is over three rebounds per game better at 14.5. Another reason for bettors to get excited about taking this prop is the favorable betting price. OddsShopper again comes in handy to reveal even-money odds listed for Embiid to come up short of 10.5 rebounds. The +100 price and a slight projections advantage (10.42 rebounds expected) lead to a 7% expected ROI for this prediction.
Under 3.5 Assists (+120, DraftKings)
The NBA betting line of 3.5 total assists is nearly one fewer than Embiid’s per-game average of 4.3 entering Thursday. However, thanks to favorable plus-money odds as a result of the statistical discrepancy, the under is a positive-ROI wager. OddsShopper shows that bettors can net up to +120 value on taking Embiid to finish with three assists or fewer in tonight’s game. Although OddsShopper projects him for 3.82 assists, the advantage is not large enough to deter from betting the under at a plus-money price. The fact that both the Jazz and 76ers play at a slower pace than most teams figures to aid in the number of assist opportunities Embiid will have tonight.
