The Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Clippers are both playing the second night of a back-to-back on Monday, but there are plenty of stars to wager on in the prop market – if they all play.
I have two Suns players that I’m targeting, as well as a James Harden prop that has hit in 19 of the 30 games that he’s played this season.

Let’s dive into the picks for this Western Conference showdown:
Suns vs. Clippers best NBA prop bets
- Bradley Beal OVER 20.5 points
- Devin Booker UNDER 4.5 rebounds
- James Harden UNDER 18.5 points
Bradley Beal OVER 20.5 points
Bradley Beal was limited against the Memphis Grizzlies, scoring just 12 points on 12 shots, but he did play over 37 minutes.
Beal had four straight games with 21 or more points before that outing.
As the star guard gets his legs under him after missing most of this season with injuries, he should be able to return to his usual scoring averages (Beal averages 22.0 points per game for his career).
With Kevin Durant banged up and the team playing the second night of a back-to-back, I don’t mind a play on Beal at this discounted number.
Devin Booker UNDER 4.5 rebounds
Devin Booker did not grab a single rebound in the Suns’ loss to Memphis on Sunday, and he’s failed to grab more than four boards in 10 of his last 12 games.
Booker is averaging 5.0 rebounds per game, but that number has dipped to 3.6 per game over that 12-game stretch.
I simply can’t trust him against a Clippers team that is top 10 in the NBA in rebounding percentage.
James Harden UNDER 18.5 points
Harden has failed to clear this line in 19 of his 30 games this season, and he’s averaging 17.3 points per game coming into this matchup.
The Suns are just 16th in the NBA in defensive rating this season, but Harden isn’t seeking out shots like he used to, attempting just 11.1 shots per game, including five games since Dec. 1 where he’s taken less than 10 shots.
I’ll fade him here, especially if both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George suit up.
