Michael Porter Jr. over 15.5 points (-108)
Micheal Porter Jr. is finally playing great, consistent basketball. He scored 15+ points in the 11 straight games and has an average of 20.8 points over that period.
Denver Nuggets have traded for Aaron Gordon on trade deadline day, but he shouldn’t impact Porter Jr.’s minutes and usage rate.
They are playing against Philadelphia today. Denver’s first two offensive options will have tough matchups. Jokic is going against Dwight Howard, and the DPOY candidate Ben Simmons should guard Jamal Murray.
Danny Green should be responsible for Michael Porter Jr, and he will have trouble contesting his shots because of the MPJ size advantage.

Danny Green over 2.5 three-pointers (-115)
Danny Green is shooting incredibly this season. In the last 25 games, he is shooting 43 percent behind the three-point line, having an average of 2.9 threes made over that period. He is currently in the best form of the season, scoring 4.8 threes on average over the last six games while shooting 54 percent.
He is playing against Denver, which allows the fourth-most made three-point shots to the opposing small forward. Denver usually helps a lot with wing defenders in pick-and-roll defense, so they leave the corners wide open. Also, he will be guarded by Michael Porter Jr., who is probably Denver’s worst off-ball defender.
