By Larry Rupp
Wednesday's NBA schedule has 10 games, including an exciting clash between the Phoenix Suns and Utah Jazz. The Suns are a 1.5-point road favorite and the over/under is set at 223 points.
Here's three of the best prop bets for the Suns-Jazz game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Suns vs Jazz Prop Bets Tonight
1. Chris Paul - Assists: Over 9.5 (-140)
It's not hard to look at the results and see that point guard Chris Paul has been dishing out the ball at an insane rate lately. The 36-year-old has posted a total of 52 assists over his last four games and cashed the over on this prop in every game during that span. Paul played in 40 minutes against the Jazz two nights ago and dropped 13 assists. Yes, that game was played at home. However, the Suns are nearly identical on the road versus at home when it comes to assists per game as a team. Paul is surrounded by shooters that are not afraid to shoot the ball. Back the NBA veteran to keep his hot streak going on Wednesday night.
2. Hassan Whiteside - Points: Under 13.5 (-108)
The Jazz have been forced to rely on Hassan Whiteside a lot more with big man Rudy Gobert on the sideline injured. His added minutes haven't exactly turned into more points, though. Whiteside is only averaging 8.2 points per game on the year and has poured in 14 in just one of his last five games. That includes a 10-point performance against this Suns team. Phoenix has posted the second-best defensive efficiency mark in the NBA and allow an opponent shooting percentage of just 43.7% (T-No. 2 in NBA). This is a tough matchup no matter how you look at it. Avoid betting on Whiteside to have any kind of success on the score sheet in this contest.
3. Joe Ingles - Rebounds: Under 3.5 (+104)
Despite the Suns' defensive dominance, they haven't been the best rebounding team in the NBA. That may draw bettors toward Joe Ingles' rebound prop. However, the number seems a bit too high for the Utah sharpshooter. Ingles has brought down at least four boards in only two of his last six games. Overall, he is averaging 2.9 rebounds per game on the year and missed his last contest due to a sprained ankle. It's possible he doesn't see his usual minutes tonight because of that. Ingles' tendency to hang out by the perimeter gives him very few opportunities to crash the boards. This isn't the matchup for him to suddenly buck that trend.
