Sunday'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. Jalen Brunson - Points: Over 19.5 (+100)

With most of the attention on Luka Doncic, some fans might have missed the impressive postseason that Jalen Brunson has had. The 25-year-old is averaging 24.1 PPG on .457/.333/.878 shooting and shouldn't have an issue finishing Game 4 with 20 or more points. Firstly, the 19.4 field-goal attempts per game in the playoffs give him more than enough volume. Secondly, Brunson has hit the over on this prop in seven of nine postseason games so far, making it a trend likely to continue.

2. Deandre Ayton - Rebounds: Under 10.5 (-138)

Deandre Ayton's 11 rebounds in Game 3 were only his second-highest total of the playoffs, highlighting his struggle to collect boards. He did average 10.2 RPG during the regular season, but the 9.0 RPG he's put up in the playoffs should have bettors leaning towards the under here. If that wasn't convincing enough, Ayton has finished with 10 or fewer rebounds in eight of his last 10 games. Additionally, the Mavericks are a top-10 team at limiting the opposition's boards, leaving Ayton with another difficult matchup on Sunday.

3. Chris Paul - Assists: Over 8.5 (-105)

Chris Paul continues being one of the NBA's top point guards even as he nears his 40s. Having said that, he went from averaging 12.0 assists in the first five games of the playoffs to just 5.8 APG in his last four. The good news for bettors looking at the over here is that Paul has performed well lately following a loss. He's averaging 12.3 APG in contests following the last three losses he was in and should see plenty of playmaking opportunities as the Suns try to avenge Friday's defeat.
