Sunday's NBA slate of games includes a showdown between the Golden State Warriors and New Orleans Pelicans. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Warriors as the 7-point road favorites over the Pelicans.

Here's three of the best prop bets for the Warriors-Pelicans game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Warriors vs Pelicans Player Props

1. Klay Thompson - Points: Over 22.5 (-112)

Klay Thompson has grown more comfortable the longer he's been back from his injury absence, averaging 25.9 points on .448/.410/.900 shooting his last 10 games. That isn't even mentioning that he's hit the over on this prop in five of his last seven games. Thompson has a great opportunity to do it again against a Pelicans defense that just gave up 141 points to the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday. Add in the fact that he's scored at least 33 points in each of his last two starts and it's easy to see why he has a solid chance of hitting the over.

2. Andrew Wiggins - Assists: Under 2.5 (-172)

Even though he's never been known as a playmaker, Andrew Wiggins' 2.2 assists per game this season are his lowest average since 2017-18. His assist totals have dipped lately as he's averaged just 1.5 APG in his last 11 outings. What makes him even likelier to hit the under on this prop is the fact that he's finished with two or fewer assists nine times in that 11-game span. The Pelicans have done well limiting their opponents' playmaking opportunities this season, holding them to 24.8 APG (No. 14). Temper expectations when it comes to Wiggins' assist opportunities tonight.

3. Kevon Looney - Rebounds: Over 4.5 (-115)

Kevon Looney may not be the most well-known center in the league, but he's done well for the Warriors this year, averaging a career-high 7.3 rebounds per game. He likely won't have any issues hitting the over on this prop bet considering how he's finished with five or more boards 63 times this season. Additionally, he's averaged 6.0 RPG in two contests against the Pelicans this season. Unless something drastic happens, history suggests that Looney won't have an issue rewarding bettors who take the over.
