The Dallas Mavericks are looking to steal Game 1 of their series against the Phoenix Suns, but the odds are against them. FanDuel Sportsbook lists Phoenix as hefty 6-point favorite, with -245 odds on the moneyline.

But the spread and moneyline are far from the only way to wager on the playoffs. With that in mind, here are the three best prop bets to target in Mavs-Suns Game 1.

Mavericks vs Suns Player Prop Bets

3. Deandre Ayton - Rebounds: Over 11.5 (-110)

Deandre Ayton demolished the Mavericks on the boards in his last four games against Dallas; the former No. 1 overall pick averaged 16.0 RPG during that span. While he only averaged 9.8 boards per game against the Utah Jazz last series, Dallas doesn't have a glass-eater like Rudy Gobert on its roster. In fact, Dallas barely even has any bigs at all, as 6-foot-7 point guard Luka Doncic is somehow the Mavs' best rebounder at 9.1 per game. No other Maverick averages even 6.0 per outing.

2. Devin Booker - Points: Over 24.5 (-106)

Devin Booker looked rusty in his return to the court in Game 6, but he's had a few days to get back to 100%. And he was absolutely on fire before that hamstring injury slowed him down. He logged a 25-point showing in his first playoff game and scored 31 points in just 24 minutes of action before exiting with that hamstring issue. Dallas is no slouch defensively, but Booker did put up 28 points the last time he faced the Mavs and averaged a whopping 27.3 PPG in the playoffs during the Suns' run to the NBA Finals last year.

1. Luka Doncic - Points: Over 30.5 (-110)

Going with three straight overs is a bit risky, but betting against Luka Doncic would be a lot scarier. The Mavs' superstar has put up at least 30 points in two of his three postseason appearances since returning from an injury of his own. And massive scoring nights in the playoffs are nothing new for the 23-year-old. He averaged 31.0 PPG through six playoff games in 2019-20 and a whopping 35.7 PPG last year. Look for the one-man show to keep rolling on Monday night.
