Thursday's NBA slate of 2021-22 playoff games includes a showdown between the Phoenix Suns and New Orleans Pelicans. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Suns as the 2-point road favorites over the Pelicans.

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

Suns vs Pelicans Player Props

1. Mikal Bridges - Points: Over 16.5 (-104)

After averaging 13.8 points in the first four games of the series, Mikal Bridges caught a lot of people off guard with a 31-point performance on Tuesday. He may not reach those heights again tonight, but he still has a good shot of hitting the over on this prop. Bridges is averaging 16.9 points in his last 22 games, hitting the over in 14 of those contests. Furthermore, he's accomplished that same feat in three of his last four outings. The Suns should consider riding with the hot hand tonight, which could end up with Bridges hitting the over once again.

2. Deandre Ayton - Rebounds: Under 10.5 (-140)

Deandre Ayton is one of the more promising young centers in the NBA today, but he's been having a hard time gathering rebounds against the Pelicans. Although he's averaging 10.4 RPG this series, Ayton has finished with nine or fewer rebounds in four of those five games. His struggles against the Pelicans have actually gone on longer than that, with the 23-year-old big man finishing with the under on this prop in six of his last seven outings against New Orleans. It truly seems as if the Pelicans have his number and it wouldn't be shocking if they held Ayton in check once again.

3. Brandon Ingram - Threes Made: Under 1.5 (-130)

After three consecutive 30-plus-point showings, Brandon Ingram cooled down in Game 5 with just 22 points. That included him going 1-of-5 from the three-point line for the second straight game. Ingram has now finished with the under on this prop in eight of his last 10 outings, averaging 1.1 threes made per game over that stretch. He's much more effective in the mid-range game and closer to the basket, which is why bettors should temper expectations and side with the under in this case.
