The 2021 NBA season is in full swing. Tuesday's basketball action features a primetime matchup between the Golden State Warriors and Phoenix Suns.
Here's three of the best prop bets for Warriors-Suns, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Warriors vs Suns Best Prop Bets
1. Deandre Ayton - Points: Over 14.5 (-112)
The Suns have won 16 games in a row and the consistent play of young center Deandre Ayton has been a major reason why. The former Arizona standout is averaging 16.7 points per game at home this season and has scored at least 15 points in seven of his last 10 games played. This is a great time to bet on Ayton to stuff the stat sheet given the Warriors perimeter defense has been unstoppable this season. That means head coach Monty Williams should attempt to get Ayton going early in order to establish a presence down low in the paint. Trust the 23-year-old to get the job done here.
2. Draymond Green - Rebounds: Over 7.5 (-115)
Draymond Green has been a defensive force so far this year and it has caused his rebounding numbers to take a jump. The 10th-year pro is averaging 7.8 rebounds per game, which is his highest mark since the 2016-17 season. He has posted at least eight boards in three of his last four games and has a great opportunity to keep his success going. The Suns are allowing the third-highest opponent defensive rebounding percentage in the NBA (80.1%). Phoenix's lack of offensive rebounding should give Green an opportunity to cash this over before the fourth quarter even starts.
3. 1st Quarter Spread: Phoenix Suns -0.5 (-106)
While the Warriors have posted one of the best margin of victory marks in the league, they have struggled to come out of the gate hot at times. In fact, Golden State is just 1-7 against the spread in first quarters of away games this season. This isn't a favorable matchup to stop that trend, either. The Suns average the fifth-most first quarter points per game in the NBA (28.6) and have posted the fourth-best average first quarter margin as well (+2.5). Back the home team to grab an early lead in this one and come out on top after the first 12 minutes.
