Friday's NBA slate of 2021-22 playoff games includes a showdown between the Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Suns as the 1-point road favorites over the Mavericks.
Here are the three of the best prop bets for the Suns-Mavericks game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Suns vs Mavericks Player Props
1. Luka Doncic - Points: Over 34.5 (-106)
The Mavericks may be down 0-2 in the series, but that hasn't stopped the world from talking about how Luka Doncic has averaged 40.0 points per game against the Suns. With how the underwhelming Dallas' supporting cast has been so far this series, it wouldn't be shocking if Doncic put the team on his back again with another dominant showing. His average of 22.0 field-goal attempts in his last 10 games certainly gives him the value, especially if he takes 30 shots like in Game 1. Doncic also has four 35-plus-point efforts in his last 10 games against the Suns. With the hometown crowd giving him a boost, look for the Slovenian superstar to have another memorable performance tonight.
2. Deandre Ayton - Rebounds: Under 8.5 (+104)
After averaging 11.6 rebounds over his last 15 games to close out the regular season, Deandre Ayton has averaged only 8.8 RPG in the playoffs. The 23-year-old center has been held to single-digit totals in all but one postseason game so far and has finished with the under on this prop in each of his last three games. The Mavericks are a top-10 team at limiting the opposition's rebounds this year for a reason and bettors should expect Ayton to have another uphill battle in Game 3.
3. Devin Booker - Threes Made: Over 2.5 (-113)
Devin Booker finally looked like his old self on Wednesday when he recorded 30 points, which included five made three-pointers. If he truly is back to his healthy self, Booker should have no issue hitting the over on this prop, especially if the Mavericks let the Suns shoot .520 from beyond the arc again tonight. The 25-year-old sharpshooter has now also finished with at least a trio of threes in five of his last eight outings this season. If Booker continues having the volume that he's seen over that span (7.3 three-point attempts), hitting the over tonight should be a breeze.
