Tuesday's NBA schedule has just two games, one of which is an exciting clash between the Detroit Pistons and Golden State Warriors. The Warriors are 15-point home favorites and the over/under is set at 218.5 points.

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

Pistons-Warriors Prop Bets Tonight

1. Stephen Curry - Points: Over 25.5 (-116)

Stephen Curry sat out on Sunday due to a hand injury, but he is completely off of the injury report heading into Tuesday night. The seven-time All-Star couldn't have asked for a better matchup in his return to the court. Detroit has posted the ninth-worst defensive efficiency mark in the league and is allowing 111.3 points per game overall (No. 24 in NBA). While there's no questioning that Curry is in a slump, he loves to play in front of his home crowd. Curry averages 27.5 points per game and shoots over 40% from three-point range when playing in the Chase Center. Trust him to have a big scoring game in this one.

2. Cade Cunningham - Points: Over 16.5 (-108)

Another scorer to keep an eye on in this contest is rookie Cade Cunningham. The former Oklahoma State standout has scored at least 17 points in three of his last four games played and is starting to take over on the offensive side of the court. In fact, Cunningham leads the team in usage rate over that same span (25.8%). Yes, Golden State is a tough defensive matchup. However, it's possible that this game turns into a blowout by the second half. That would give Cunningham a ton of opportunities to shoot the ball without any kind of worry. The 20-year-old should be able to cash the over on this prop bet.

3. First Quarter Spread: Detroit Pistons +5.5 (-115)

Aside from player props, it's worth targeting the Pistons when looking at the first quarter spread. Despite the Warriors dominance this season, they rarely get out to a fast start. Golden State averages 27.8 first quarter points per game, but also allow 27.3. Overall, Steve Kerr's team is 7-15 against the spread (ATS) in the first quarter of away games this year. The Pistons are full of young players hungry to show one of the NBA's best that they are not messing around. Expect Detroit to cover this number and keep the game close for at least one quarter.
