Friday's NBA slate of games includes the late night ESPN doubleheader between the New York Knicks at Phoenix Suns at 10:00 p.m. EST. FanDuel Sportsbook has the Suns a 6.5-point favorite over the Knicks, and the over/under is 222.5 points.

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

Knicks vs Suns Props

1. Deandre Ayton - Rebounds: Under 10.5 (+100)

Deandre Ayton averages 10 rebounds per game, but he's failed to go over this prop in nine of his last 10 games. The Knicks actually rank top seven in the league in rebounding rate, and play at a slow pace. Ayton's minutes on the court could be down again like last game when he logged less than 26 minutes in a blowout win over the Trail Blazers.

2. 2 or More 3 Point FGs Made in the First 3 Minutes: No (+112)

The Suns star guards are out, including Devin Booker who takes more than seven 3-pointers per game. The Knicks are missing eight three-point attempts per game with Noel Grimes and Derrick Rose also out. Take a shot (and miss) on an early game winner.

3. 1st Quarter Total Points: Under 56.5 (-104)

A slow start is expected, as is less scoring with the game total bet down from the opener. Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau preaches defense, and despite the Knicks' recent struggles, New York is right there with Phoenix top eight in scoring defense allowing 107.3 points per game. Off their easy win over Portland, the Suns are likely to be less sharp early without their star guards again.
