The Toronto Raptors have a tough second leg of a back-to-back on Wednesday, as they’ll take on the Phoenix Suns. 

The Suns may not have Kevin Durant (questionable, foot) in this game, and that brings some value to a few key prop bets tonight. 

Scottie Barnes and Pascal Siakam are both great targets for Toronto fans, and I have my favorite plays for them tonight:

Suns vs. Raptors best NBA prop bets today

  • Pascal Siakam UNDER 12.5 assists and rebounds
  • Scottie Barnes OVER 16.5 points
  • Eric Gordon OVER 2.5 3-pointers made

Pascal Siakam UNDER 12.5 assists and rebounds

This prop line seems very reasonable for Pascal Siakam, who is averaging 7.0 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game this season. However, I think it should be juiced more towards the under based on his play in the 2023-24 season. 

In 18 games, Siakam has cleared 12.5 rebounds and assists just seven times. 

Phoenix ranks No. 3 in the NBA in opponent rebounds per game, and the team is No. 9 in opponent assists per game. That’s a bad sign for Siakam’s chances of clearing this prop, even if the Suns are shorthanded in this game. 

Scottie Barnes OVER 16.5 points

This prop line has dropped low for Scottie Barnes, who is averaging 18.9 points per game this season. 

While the former Rookie of the Year has cleared 16.5 points in just three of his last seven games, he’s still done it in 12 of 18 total games this season. 

Barnes is also getting plenty of shots, attempting 15.5 field goals and 5.1 3-pointers per game. With that usage, he should be able to clear this total on Wednesday. 

Eric Gordon OVER 2.5 3-pointers made

Phoenix guard Eric Gordon is shooting the 3-ball at a high rate this season, and his volume has been way up as well. 

Gordon has attempted at least eight shots from deep in five of his last six games, hitting three or more 3-pointers in seven of his last nine appearances. 

I could see him having another big game, especially if Kevin Durant (questionable) ends up sitting out.
