Best Prop Bets Today

  • Pistons/Magic UNDER 212 Points (-110)
  • Chris Paul OVER 16.5 Points (-125)
  • Saddiq Bey UNDER 16.5 Points (-115)

Pistons/Magic UNDER 212 Points (-110)

The Pistons and Magic have played twice this season and are 1-1 on the over/under. When they hit the over, they combined for 213 points, which is just one point higher than tonight’s total. I think we see a little bit of regression from both teams in that aspect and get under 212. 

Both teams are .500 on the season for over/unders, but with the lack of offensive firepower on both sides, I think tonight is a close, low scoring game. 

Chris Paul OVER 16.5 Points (-125)

Paul is known as the facilitator in Phoenix, but tonight he’ll be doing some scoring as well. Although Devin Booker has gone to another level and is scoring nearly 30 points a night, Paul is still heavily contributing points. He’s cleared this line in each of the last four games, playing extended minutes in each of them. If the Suns get into a close matchup, expect Paul to do a lot of the scoring down the stretch. 

The total for this game is nice and high, which means that points are expected to be available. For someone to have the ball in their hands as much as Chris Paul, I fully expect him to score a lot tonight. 

Saddiq Bey UNDER 16.5 Points (-115)

Bey has upped his scoring from the beginning of the year, but I still think the under is the way to go in this one. He’s missed this line in seven of his last 10 games, despite shooting close to 40% from downtown. 

I expect for this game to be a low-scoring one and for most of the points to come from Cade Cunningham. Bey will have his opportunities, but he hasn’t been trustworthy enough for me to back him tonight.
