Brandon Ingram Under 24.5 Points (-116)

Brandon Ingram struggled against the Phoenix Suns in a tough matchup in Game 1, shooting 6 for 17 from the field en route to 18 points. I think that's going to be a theme of this series.

The Suns were good at everything in the regular season, and their D limited small forwards to just 21.0 points per night across the final 15 games, the fourth-fewest in that span.

Ingram has played Phoenix three times this year, counting Game 1, and he's been held to 18 or fewer points in two of the games, with the exception being a 28-point outburst in which he benefitted from getting to the line 11 times, hitting 10 of them. That was a flukey number of freebies for Ingram, who averaged 5.9 free-throw tries per game for the year and has taken double-digit free throws just twice in his past 12 games.

We project Ingram to net just 22.4 points in Game 2. This is one of the best prop bets of the night, according to our model.

Jaren Jackson Jr. Over 1.5 Made Three-Pointers (+116)

The Minnesota Timberwolves gave up the eighth-highest three-point attempt rate (42.2%) over the final 15 regular-season games. For the entire season, they allowed a three-point attempt rate of 42.8%, the fifth-highest.

Betting on Jaren Jackson Jr. to hit multiple treys is a way to take advantage of that.

Jackson endured some foul trouble in Game 1 and was limited to 24 minutes, but he still jacked up five three-balls in the contest. As long as JJJ can stay out of foul trouble, he could be in for a lot of run in this series if the Memphis Grizzlies opt to play him at the five and put Steven Adams on the bench in an effort to better defend Karl-Anthony Towns.

There should be plenty of possessions tonight. This clash is a matchup of the teams ranked first and second in pace across the final 10 games of the regular season, and the 240.0-point total reflects what kind of game environment we should see.

Our projections have Jackson making 1.9 threes on 6.0 attempts. With the over priced at +116, this is a good prop bet to zero in on.
