Monday's NBA schedule has four games, including an exciting clash between the Utah Jazz and Phoenix Suns. The Suns are a 9-point home favorite and the over/under is set at 221 points.
Here's three of the best prop bets for the Jazz-Suns game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Jazz-Suns Prop Bets Tonight
1. Devin Booker - Made Threes: Under 2.5 (-104)
The Suns are a deep team and that means they are capable of winning games in which Devin Booker shoots poorly. The seventh-year pro is especially struggling from beyond the arc as of late. Booker has hit just 1 of his last 14 three-point attempts and has cashed the under on this prop bet in four of his last six games played. This doesn't line up to be the best bounce-back matchup, either. Utah is giving up the eighth-lowest opponent three-point percentage in the league (34.0%). There's no doubt that Booker is going to keep launching from deep, but don't trust him to get out of his cold stretch quite yet.
2. Chris Paul - Assists: Over 9.5 (-108)
Chris Paul has not stopped being one of the best ball-handling guards in the NBA at the age of 36 years old. The 11-time All-Star has racked up at least 10 assists in seven of his last 10 games and has now bumped his average up to 10.1 on the year. That is his highest mark since the 2015 season. Yes, the Jazz are a stout defensive team. However, both Utah and Phoenix play at a top 15 pace and average over 112 points per game. There's a potential for a shootout here and that only gives this prop bet more value. Back Paul to keep his recent hot streak going.
3. JaVale McGee - Rebounds: Under 9.5 (-115)
Big man JaVale McGee has been called upon to start in each of Phoenix's last three games due to the absence of Deandre Ayton. That doesn't mean he has seen an increase in playing time, though. McGee has been on the court for less than 20 minutes in two of those games and has only grabbed double-digit rebounds once. Meanwhile, Bismack Biyombo is coming off a game in which he grabbed 13 boards in 30 minutes. McGee is still a role player on this team and now has to face a Jazz defense that allows the second-fewest opponent rebounds in the NBA (50.0). None of this adds up to McGee posting 10 rebounds tonight.
