The 2022-23 NBA season has a handful of matchups slated for Christmas Day, including a Western Conference showdown between the Phoenix Suns and Denver Nuggets. The game is projected to be fairly close with Denver favored by 4 points at home on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Here are three of the best prop bets for this Suns-Nuggets game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook's NBA odds.

Suns vs Nuggets Player Props

1. Nikola Jokic - Player Points: Over 25.5 (-122)

Jokic has been on a scoring tear since returning from a brief injury-related absence in late November, averaging 28.5 points per game over his last 15 contests. He's hit the over on this prop nine times during that span, including five times in his last seven games. Ride the back-to-back MVP to have another big scoring night on Christmas in a marquee matchup against Phoenix.

2. Nikola Jokic - Player Assists: Over 8.5 (-132)

The Denver big man is almost as good at dishing it out as he is putting it in the hoop, averaging 9.5 assists per game during the aforementioned 15-game stretch. He's only had one game with fewer than 8 dimes during that stretch, so he's been remarkably consistent passing the ball. Jokic has been even better in December, averaging 10.0 assists per game and notching double-digits in four of his last six games. Take the over here, especially if Phoenix double teams him and leaves his teammates open.

3. Chris Paul - Player Points: Over 13.5 (-113)

Paul's scoring has dipped again this season, as he's averaging a career-low 12.0 points per game. His scoring has picked up since he came back from injury, however, as he's averaging 14.8 points per game since returning to the Suns' starting lineup. The veteran point guard has looked more like himself with an average of 16.1 points over his last eight games, going over this prop five times during that span. Bank on another solid scoring night from Paul, especially if he connects on a couple of threes.
