Here's three of the best prop bets for the Suns-Grizzlies game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Suns vs Grizzlies Prop Bets Tonight
1. Devin Booker - Made Threes: Under 2.5 (-106)
It's obviously tough to fade a player that averaged 30.1 points per game in the month of March. However, Memphis has been shutting down shooters on the perimeter all season long. The Grizzlies allow the fifth-fewest made threes to opposing shooting guards and an opponent three-point percentage of just 31.3% during their last three games. That is not good news considering Booker has drained less than three shots from beyond the arc in five of his last six games. Look for the 25-year-old to adjust his scoring ways tonight and get most of his work done in the paint or by the rim.
2. Mikal Bridges - Points: Over 14.5 (-120)
This is a battle between two teams that own a top-five defensive efficiency mark in the NBA. Scoring may be hard to come by at times. That makes it important to focus on players with a hot hand. Mikal Bridges has scored at least 15 points in four of his last five games and is shooting 57.1% from the floor during that span. He is hitting three-pointers, mid-range shots and contested layups. Bridges' 82.9% free throw percentage is also going to come in handy since Memphis averages 19.6 personal fouls per game (T-No. 13 in NBA). The Villanova product's versatility makes his over a smart bet tonight.
3. Chris Paul - Assists: Over 10.5 (-110)
Chris Paul has been setting his teammates up left and right since coming back from a thumb injury on March 24. He is averaging 11.7 assists per game over his last three contests and always seems to play his best in the biggest games of the season. Of course, Paul has already played the Grizzlies twice this season, racking up at least 12 assists both times. Memphis is not an easy matchup, but it does allow 24.8 assists per game this season (T-No. 17 in NBA). Back the savvy veteran to keep up his recent success in what could be a Western Conference finals preview.
