The Chicago Bulls may have found a new star, and he’s been a star in the player prop market for weeks.
Guard Coby White is thriving with Zach LaVine sidelined, and I have a few props for him in tonight’s matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Philly is looking to pick up a win against the suddenly improved Bulls, and it'll lean on Joel Embiid (another great prop pick) to do so.
Here are my favorite plays for this game:

Bulls vs. Sixers best NBA prop bets
- Coby White OVER 31.5 points, rebounds and assists
- Joel Embiid OVER 33.5 points
- Coby White UNDER 4.5 3-pointers made
Coby White OVER 31.5 points, rebounds and assists
Over his last eight games with Zach LaVine out, Coby White has cleared his PRA in each of them.
He had a 32.5 line against the Miami Heat on Saturday, and White – despite having 0 points, four rebounds and three dimes at half – finished with 22-7-5 to clear his line.
He’s averaging 25.6 points, 6.3 rebounds and 6.5 assists per game over his last eight matchups, and he should be in line for a big role against a Sixers team that is 12th in pace and No. 2 in offensive rating this season.
I have to go OVER for White with this line dropping.
Joel Embiid OVER 33.5 points
Joel Embiid has been going crazy as of late, putting up 34 or more points in six straight games and seven of his last eight matchups.
Now, he faces a Chicago team that lacks an elite interior defender. Embiid has a 40-point and 37-point game in two of his last four matchups against Nikola Vucevic.
The Sixers big man also has attempted at least 19 shots in six straight. He’s been too dominant as of late to fade in this prop.
Coby White UNDER 4.5 3-pointers made
Sticking with White, I am going to take the UNDER on his 3-point prop.
The Sixers are allowing just 11.4 opponent 3-pointers per game this season (sixth best in the NBA), and White has failed to clear this line in four of his last eight games despite the high PRA count.
He’s taking a bunch of 3-pointers (double-digit attempts in four straight games), but prior to this eight-game stretch, White had cleared 4.5 made 3s in just two other games all season.
I think this is a little lofty against a good 3-point defense.
