Friday'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. Chris Paul - Assists: Over 11.5 (-124)

Chris Paul has been the playmaking straw that stirs the drink for the Suns throughout the 2021-22 NBA season — playoffs included. He posted double-digit assist totals in each of the first two games in the series and will need another big effort to give the Suns the 2-1 series lead. The good news about this prop is that Paul is consistent when it comes to hitting the over, doing so 16 times in his last 25 games (64%). With Devin Booker sidelined for Game 3, Paul must do his best to set his teammates up for scoring chances, which should have him finishing with 12-plus assists tonight.

2. Brandon Ingram - Points: Under 25.5 (-120)

After an uneventful Game 1, Brandon Ingram exploded in Game 2, dropping 37 points on 13-of-21 shooting. As the series heads to New Orleans, Pelicans fans might be hoping for a repeat performance. However, they shouldn't hold their breath. Ingram actually played better on the road (23.5 PPG) than he did at the Smoothie King Center (21.7 PPG). Furthermore, Ingram has finished with the under on this prop in seven of his last 10 games against the Suns, which doesn't exactly bode well for his chances of having another dominant performance.

3. Jonas Valanciunas - Rebounds: Over 12.5 (-104)

After setting the franchise record with 25 rebounds in Game 1, Jonas Valanciunas dropped to a mortal 13 rebounds in Game 2. Having said that, there isn't anything really stopping him from recording 13-plus rebounds again tonight. Deandre Ayton hasn't been much of a threat to Valanciunas' rebounding numbers, with the former finishing with exactly nine boards in each game so far. Unless something changes, Valanciunas will continue to cause chaos on the paint, which could provide bettors with some decent betting value by taking the over on this prop.
