3 Best Prop Bets for Rockets vs Suns NBA Game on FanDuel Sportsbook
The 2021 NBA season is in full swing. Tuesday's basketball action features a matchup between the Houston Rockets and Phoenix Suns.
Here's three of the best prop bets for this NBA game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Rockets vs Suns Player Props
1. Jae Crowder - Rebounds: Over 5.5 (-140)
Deandre Ayton is questionable for tonight' game with a right leg contusion. The same injury caused him to miss Tuesday's game. If history repeats itself, Jae Crowder could be in line for a bigger role. The 31-year-old veteran is averaging 5.8 rebounds per game on the season and had an eight-rebound performance in his most recent game. Now, Crowder faces as a Rockets team that's given up an average of 59.0 rebounds over their last three games — tied for the fourth-highest average in that span. Even if Ayton plays, he may not be 100%, which means Phoenix will count on Crowder to collect the boards.
2. Jalen Green - Threes Made: Over 2.5 (+132)
Jalen Green enters tonight's game after making 5-of-10 three-point attempts against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday. Fortunately for him, the Suns have allowed their opponents to shoot 38.9% from beyond the arc (29th) and have surrendered the most three-pointers per game this season (15.8). While Green has only hit the over twice so far this season, he's attempted 8.2 threes per game over his last five contests. With how underwhelming Phoenix's perimeter defense has been plus his volume, it's hard to imagine Green not hitting at least three shots from downtown on Thursday.
3. Devin Booker - Points: Under 25.5 (-112)
Devin Booker is currently averaging 21.8 points per game through his first six contests this season. While he has the ability to explode on any given night, the Rockets have actually done well when it comes to defending shooting guards this year. Houston is surrendering the second-fewest points per game to shooting guards this season (16.5) while the Rockets defense has looked solid as a whole. Considering how Booker has been kept to the under in four of six games this season, it wouldn't be surprising if the Houston defense gave him trouble tonight.
