3 Best Prop Bets for Lakers vs Suns NBA Game on FanDuel Sportsbook
Sunday's NBA slate wraps up with the Los Angeles Lakers vs Phoenix Suns on ESPN.
Here's three of the best prop bets for Lakers-Suns, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Lakers vs Suns Player Props
1. Devin Booker - Assists: Over 6.5 (+108)
Devin Booker continues to step up as a playmaker with Chris Paul sidelined. Booker is averaging 8.0 assists per game in five contests without Paul this season, a step above the 4.5 APG he has in 35 games with Paul in the lineup. Booker has also hit this over in four of those five Paul-less outings, including each of his last three. This total is incredibly attractive against a Lakers defense giving up the sixth-most APG to opponents.
2. LeBron James - Assists: Under 6.5 (-150)
LeBron James is certainly capable of racking up dimes, but his primary role is as a scorer with Anthony Davis absent. James is averaging a whopping 33.4 PPG over his last eight games, but his assists are at just 5.3 per contest over that stretch. He's also failed to hit this over in seven of those eight outings. With the Lakers entering this matchup as 9-point underdogs, James will need to focus on getting buckets, instead of playmaking, to keep this contest close.
3. Cameron Payne - Rebounds: 3.5 (-148)
Cameron Payne is another Suns player whose numbers benefit from Paul being out of the lineup. His minutes per game balloon from 20.4 in games with Paul active to 31.9 when Paul is sidelined. He's taken advantage of this opportunity by improving his numbers across the board, including rebounds per game (RPG; up from 2.8 to 4.0). The Lakers leak rebounds, giving up the fourth-most RPG to opponents, and they're without their star big man. This team also plays at the fourth-fastest pace in the league, meaning Payne should have a bevy of chances to stuff his rebounding total tonight.
