The 2022-23 NBA season is in full swing with another four matchups set for action on Tuesday, Nov. 1. One of those battles features the Minnesota Timberwolves (4-3) facing off against the Phoenix Suns (5-1) in a Western Conference showdown.
Here are three of the best prop bets for this Timberwolves-Suns game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook's NBA odds.
Timberwolves vs Suns Player Props
1. Devin Booker - Points: Over 28.5 (-113)
Devin Booker continues proving why he's one of the best scorers in the NBA. The 26-year-old sharpshooter is averaging 29.3 points through six games, having scored 30-plus points in four of his last five outings. Don't be surprised if that's a trend that continues considering how Booker tends to find success against the Timberwolves. He's averaging 30.1 PPG while making 47.9% of his field goals in his last eight games against Minnesota, hitting the over on this prop five times in that span. With the T-Wolves being a middle-of-the-pack team when it comes to defending shooting guards this season, I see another big game for Booker in the cards.
2. D'Angelo Russell - Assists: Over 5.5 Assists (-142)
D'Angelo Russell has been a solid playmaker for the Timberwolves so far, averaging 6.0 assists per game. He's already hit the over on this prop in five of his last six games and there's no reason why that trend won't continue. For starters, Russell is averaging exactly 6.0 assists in his last seven outings against the Suns. Though he's had to contend with Chris Paul more often than not in the backcourt, Russell has still managed to finish with six-plus helpers in five of those seven meetings. With Paul's play finally starting to decline, the matchup should be more favorable for Russell, leading to my taking the over on this prop.
3. Rudy Gobert - Rebounds: Overe 13.5 (-128)
Rudy Gobert enters this matchup as the NBA's leader with 14.7 rebounds per game. He's already finished with 15-plus rebounds in four outings this season and has amassed a total of 33 rebounds in his last two games alone. The Suns are vulnerable in the paint due to Deandre Ayton being injured, opening the door for Gobert to do what he does best. Phoenix's frontcourt depth isn't overly impressive and I imagine that the "Stifle Tower" will have more favorable matchups more often than not. Gobert is also averaging 13.7 RPG in his last 16 games against the Suns, hitting the over in four of the last seven meetings. Unless he forgets how to play basketball, I'd be surprised if Gobert doesn't finish with 14-plus rebounds yet again.
