Here's three of the best prop bets for the Suns-Warriors game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Suns vs Warriors Prop Bets Tonight
1. Chris Paul - Points: Over 14.5 (-116)
Chris Paul has not lost a beat since returning from a right thumb injury. He has scored at least 17 points in each of his last two games and is shooting 60.0% from the floor during that span. He has a great opportunity to keep that success going given Golden State is allowing a whopping 122.3 points per game over its last three contests. Their defense is lacking as of late and Paul has scored at least 15 points in three of his last four games against the Warriors. The 12-time All-Star is on a mission, so back his over here.
2. Andrew Wiggins - Points: Under 16.5 (-110)
The Warriors are set to face a Suns' defense that has posted the third-best defensive efficiency mark and gives up the third-lowest opponent shooting percentage in the NBA (44.3%). Phoenix also allows the third-fewest points to opposing small forwards. Of course, none of that bodes well for Andrew Wiggins. Wiggins has scored less than 17 points in four of his last six games and his lack of scoring has bumped his season average down to 17.1. That is his lowest mark since his rookie year in 2014. This is not the matchup for the 27-year-old to suddenly break out with a big performance.
3. Mikal Bridges - Made Threes: Over 1.5 (+104)
Grabbing this prop bet at plus odds lines up as a steal. Mikal Bridges has drained at least 2 three-pointers in six of his last seven games and is attempting 5.0 shots from beyond the arc during that span. Golden State has been amazing at shutting down the perimeter this season, but it is allowing an opponent three-point shooting percentage of 44.2% over its last three contests. The Suns have won eight games in a row and their ability to knock down three-pointers is a big reason why. Trust that Bridges will keep seeing open looks as Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton clog up the lane.
