Tuesday's NBA slate of 2021-22 playoff games includes a showdown between the New Orleans Pelicans and Phoenix Suns. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Suns as the 6.5-point home favorites over the Pelicans.

Here are the three of the best prop bets for the Pelicans-Suns game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Pelicans vs Suns Player Props

1. Brandon Ingram - Points: Over 25.5 (-118)

Brandon Ingram has always shown flashes of promise now and then, but he's really been putting things together lately. The 24-year-old has averaged 29.8 points per game so far this series and has a solid opportunity to hit the over on this prop. Although the Suns are one of the top defensive teams, they haven't been able to stop Ingram, allowing him to score at least 30 points in each of the last three games. In fact, he's now hit the over in four of his last five outings against Phoenix. Ingram's clearly the Pelicans' best player and he's shown no intention of slowing down his momentum.

2. Herbert Jones - Record 2+ Steals (+108)

Herbert Jones might be a second-round rookie, but he's playing like a seasoned veteran with the way he defends. In his last 26 games, Herbs has averaged an impressive 2.0 steals, finishing with at least two in 15 times over that stretch while having gone without one only three times. The Suns are going to do everything in their power to re-take the series lead, so it'll be up to Jones to help shut them down. With how he's been playing recently, two or more steals isn't an unreasonable expectation for the 23-year-old.

3. Chris Paul - Assists: Over 12.5 (+110)

Chris Paul may have struggled to shoot the ball in Game 4, but he still managed to finish with a respectable 11 assists. The veteran point guard will be looking to bounce back in a big way tonight, which could result in him hitting the over on this prop. He's already done so twice in his last three games while also doing it in five of his last seven matchups against the Pelicans. For some reason, Paul seems to turn things up a notch when he plays against his former team.
