The 2021 NBA season is in full swing. Friday's basketball action features a primetime matchup between the Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns.

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

Celtics vs Suns Best Prop Bets

1. Al Horford - Points: Under 12.5 (-122)

Big man Al Horford has enjoyed a bounce-back season with the Boston Celtics so far, but he remains an inefficient scorer. The starting center has failed to score more than 12 points in 13 of his last 19 games and is only attempting 10.0 field goals per contest on the year. That is not enough volume to overcome a Phoenix defense that owns the second-best defensive efficiency in the NBA. Overall, the suns are allowing the seventh-fewest opponent points in the paint per game this season (43.2). Don't back Horford to light it up on the score sheet tonight.

2. Jae Crowder - Rebounds: Over 4.5 (-142)

While Jae Crowder may only be averaging 4.8 rebounds per game, he has started to turn it up as of late. The 10th-year pro has racked up at least 5 boards in four of his last five games and has a great shot to keep his momentum going on Friday night. Crowder is playing exactly 28.0 minutes a night and is set to face a Celtics' defense that allows the 11th-most opponent total rebounds in away games this season. Look for the Suns' starter to use that to his advantage and get a leg up on Horford and Jayson Tatum here.

3. Dennis Schroder - 2+ Made Threes (-138)

It's become clear that point guard Dennis Schroder has become a go-to scoring option on this Boston offense. He has scored 19 or more points in three of his last five games played and knocked in at least 2 three-pointers in four games during that same span. The Suns have been a force on defense, but it's important to point out that they rank in the middle of the pack in opponent three point percentage this season (35.0%). Phoenix plays at the fourth-fastest pace in the league, which means the Celtics could see more possessions than usual. Schroder could hit this over before halftime.
