The 2021 NBA season is in full swing. Tuesday's basketball action features a primetime matchup between the Phoenix Suns and Portland Trail Blazers.

Here's three of the best prop bets for Suns-Blazers, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Suns vs Blazers Best Prop Bets

1. Chris Paul - Assists: Over 9.5 (-122)

Veteran point guard Chris Paul has had to step into an extended role with star player Devin Booker sidelined with an injury. He is the main facilitator on this offense and has posted at least 10 assists in four of his last six games. He has a great chance to keep that momentum going against a Portland defense that allows the fifth-most opponent assists per game (25.4). The Trail Blazers also give up an opponent shooting percentage of 47.2% (No. 28 in NBA), which means Paul's teammates should have plenty of open looks. Back the 36-year-old to dish out the ball a ton tonight.

2. Mikal Bridges - Made Threes: Over 1.5 (+154)

Bettors lookin for a bit more bang for their buck should target Mikal Bridges to sink at least 2 three-pointers. This one is more about opportunity than anything else. Bridges is set to see more playing time with both Booker and Deandre Ayton out. Portland has also failed to defend the perimeter all year. The Trail Blazers are allowing the highest opponent three point percentage in the NBA (38.2%) and are giving up 41.7 points per game from beyond the arc (No. 27). This game could easily turn into a shootout with a point total set at 219. Trust Bridges to get in on the action with a couple of long balls.

3. First Half Total Points: Under 105 (-110)

It's notable to point out that both of these teams struggle to get going in first halves this season. In fact, the first half under has hit in 16 of the Suns' 25 games as well as in 18 of the Trail Blazers' 27 games. Both squads rank outside the top 10 in first half points per game and tend to heat up in the second half, instead. With the Suns down a few key starters, it wouldn't be surprising to see them struggle to gel together right away. Everything lines up for this game to feature a low-scoring first half, so bet on the under 105 to hit.
