The Los Angeles Clippers and Phoenix Suns meet in Game 2 of the Western conference finals with the home team looking to take a 2-0 series lead to Los Angeles. The Clippers have faced a 2-0 deficit in both of the previous series, but will look to change that this time around against the Suns.
Here are the five player prop bets the public is favoring for Tuesday’s game.
Devin Booker to record a double-double (+200)
This is actually tremendous value given Chris Paul’s inactive status for Game 2. Booker put up a triple-double in Phoenix’s Game 1 win and should handle point guard duties in Game 2 as well. He’s a natural scorer, but looked to get his teammates involved as well. The rebounding numbers might not be there again, but there’s a good reason bettors are favoring this prop.
Devin Booker over 2.5 3-pointers (+112)
Booker is a great shooter, but he didn’t take too many triples in Game 1 due to his new role as the lead guard. This is still a great prop given Booker’s volume as a shooter in the playoffs and the necessity for him to keep scoring at a high level for the team. The guard will likely not take as many threes, but he’s more than capable of hitting at least three to make this prop pay off.
Devin Booker over 6.5 assists (-127)
If you’ve taken the first prop, you’re likely in on this prop bet. Booker had 11 assists in Game 1 and there’s no reason to think he won’t hit double figures again in Game 2. Paul is out of the lineup, so Booker becomes the point guard. Cam Payne was great in the role, but Booker will get more minutes. Luckily, he doesn’t need 10 assists for this prop to pay off.
Paul George over 3.5 3-pointers (+120)
George has been on fire since Kawhi Leonard’s absence, averaging 33.0 points per game. He’s also hitting 41.4 percent of his three-point attempts in that same time frame, which averages out to four makes per game. That’s all bettors need for this prop to hit.
Deandre Ayton over 14.5 points (-134)
Phoenix’s big man is having a great postseason, averaging 15.6 points per game on 71.6 percent shooting from the floor. He’s likely to see additional touches with Paul sidelined and more importantly, the Clippers don’t have a great answer defensively for him while playing small ball. He’s topped this threshold in six instances out of 10 playoff games, but his 20 points in Game 1 bodes well for bettors here.
