The Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks face off on Tuesday night in the biggest matchup of the NBA slate on TNT. 

This matchup is filled with star players from Damian Lillard and Giannis Antetokounmpo to Phoenix’s Big 3 of Kevin Durant, Devin Booker and Bradley Beal.

That’s a prop bettors paradise, and I’m targeting two of those five stars in my three favorite prop bets for Tuesday’s action:  

Bucks vs. Suns best NBA prop bets

  • Jusuf Nurkic OVER 10.5 rebounds
  • Damian Lillard OVER 23.5 points
  • Kevin Durant OVER 25.5 points

Jusuf Nurkic OVER 10.5 rebounds

Suns center Jusuf Nurkic has hit the OVER on this prop in two of his last four games, and he’s averaging 10.3 rebounds per game, but why take him to get 11 tonight? 

Well, Milwaukee plays at a blistering pace (third in the NBA) and the team is just 17th in the league in rebounding percentage. Nurkic should have plenty of chances on the glass against a team that usually plays a traditional center in Brook Lopez. 

Plus, over his last 12 games, Nurkic has cleared this prop seven times and is averaging 17.3 rebound chances per game in that stretch. 

Damian Lillard OVER 23.5 points

Lillard scored just 12 points on 5-of-18 shooting in his last game, but he’s still averaging 24.9 points per game on the season. 

Dame is still taking 17.4 shots per game playing alongside Giannis, and he’s posted 28 games with 24 or more points this season. 

I’ll buy low off of one of his worst shooting games of the season. 

Kevin Durant OVER 25.5 points

Durant is waiting to explode for the Suns, playing extremely efficient basketball and picking his spots for big scoring nights. 

This could be one of them in what should be a close game with Milwaukee. 

After scoring 18 points on 7-of-9 shooting in limited minutes against Washington, Durant should get back to his high-scoring ways against a bottom-10 defense. 

The Suns forward is averaging 28.3 points per game, and he had put up back-to-back 30-plus point games before taking a back seat to Beal (43 points) in Washington. I love getting Durant at this number on Tuesday.
