Wednesday's slate of NBA action includes a primetime matchup between the Portland Trail Blazers and Phoenix Suns.

Here's three of the best prop bets for Blazers-Suns, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Blazers vs Suns Player Props

1. Deandre Ayton - Rebounds: Over 10.5 (-112)

Deandre Ayton has a delicious opportunity to get his rebounding numbers back on track in this game. The Blazers are currently trotting out an undersized frontcourt consisting of Drew Eubanks (6-foot-8), Trendon Watford (6-foot-8) and Greg Brown III (6-foot-7) with Jusuf Nurkic injured. Ayton, at nearly 7 feet tall and 250 pounds, should overpower this mediocre group with ease. Eubanks leads that trio with an underwhelming 4.1 rebounds per game, so Ayton (10.0 RPG) is in prime position to feast on the boards.

2. CJ Elleby - Points: Under 7.5 (+102)

CJ Elleby's increased playing time hasn't resulted in better numbers. He's failed to hit this over in two of his last three games, which includes a 1-point performance on Feb. 16. His best during this span is just 8 points, and he's averaging just 4.4 PPG this season, so it's not like his ceiling is that high anyways on a nightly basis. Elleby comes into this contest ice cold, shooting an abysmal 25.0% from the field and 0.0% from 3-point range during this recent stretch. That's bad news facing a defense that ranks No. 3 in defensive rating this year.

3. Jae Crowder - Made Threes: Over 1.5 (-184)

Jae Crowder could light it up from deep against Portland. The forward is shooting 53.3% on 3-point shots over his last three contests while attempting 5.0 per game. That's a big step up from the 2.6 attempts from deep he's averaging this season, which showcases his confidence beyond the arc heading into this game. Now he draws the league's second-worst 3-point defense by percentage (37.1%), setting him up to make it rain, especially with the absences of Chris Paul and Devin Booker freeing up more shots in this offense.
