Top 5 Suns vs. Jazz MUST BET NBA Player Props & Betting Picks Tonight | 1/26/22

It is hard to find any silver lining when you have dropped eight of your last 10 games, but the Jazz should be a little more optimistic tonight in Utah. After a close loss to the Suns where the Jazz were down the majority of their top players, Utah expects to be healthy in the rematch. Unfortunately, it is not all positive as both Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert are still out. The team does get back Bojan Bogdanovic, Mike Conley, Royce O’Neal, and Joe Ingles, which will certainly help mitigate the loss of the two stars.

The Suns are dealing with the opposite trend with injury as Deandre Ayton remains out tonight. Joining Ayton are JaVale McGee, Jae Crowder, and an already sidelined Cameron Payne. Unlike Utah, the Suns still have star power as Devin Booker and Chris Paul come off dominating nights against the Jazz. Cameron Johnson had no issue stepping into starter minutes and knocking down five of eight three-pointers. Despite the injuries, the Suns have still won seven straight games coming into this contest. Let’s check out some of the best NBA betting picks and player props for tonight’s game.

Suns Money Line (-120, FanDuel)

We keep telling you to go to OddsShopper so you are not stuck laying 1.5 to 2 points on a game where you can easily just lay -120 for the win. Phoenix still has its top two players, a capable backup-to-starter in Cam Johnson, and a nice tertiary weapon in Mikal Bridges. The Jazz are getting a bunch of guys back but not the right ones to hold off the Suns and their win streak. It is a tight line because the undermanned Jazz gave it all they could against a Suns team going through the motions – still good enough to get the win. The recency bias here is that because four guys return for Utah, it should be even closer – if not a chance for the Jazz to win. Nope. I am also not going to tempt fate with such a short line and need a late bucket to win by one point. It is easier to just take the Suns to beat the Jazz again. Venue aside, there is not any discernible advantage the Jazz have against the Suns in this game, outside of Paul and Booker losing interest. Expect Johnson to keep firing, Bridges to bounce back, and the Paul/Booker combination to be a terror.

Hassan Whiteside Over 11.5 Rebounds (-112, BetRivers)

With more minutes comes an added responsibility! Hassan Whiteside should benefit from Gobert’s absence in both scoring and rebounding. We want to focus on the latter as OddsShopper gives us great margins. Awesemo’s free projection has Whiteside finishing at 13.1 rebounds, combined with OddsShopper putting this at 68% xWin and a 29% xROI. The increased minutes alone should help Whiteside reach at least 12 rebounds. The Suns are also down both Ayton and McGee, so should be less obstruction for Whiteside to get to the glass. This prop makes sense from multiple angles where we can combine the data with the game script. The only thing keeping Whiteside away from this prop would be foul trouble, but with the lack of depth up front, the Jazz may be inclined to play him deeper in this game.

Mikal Bridges Over 11.5 Points (-125, DraftKings)

Recency bias on the books allows us to find a nice opportunity from OddsShopper and Awesemo’s data. Bridges played awful last game against Utah, mainly because of self-inflicted bad shots versus anything the Jazz did. He should bounce right back and continue to get looks at the basket. Awesemo has Bridges projected for 13.2 points and OddsShopper sees a 61% xWin chance of this bet hitting. The xROI is at 10% but we are banking on a return to a higher point production with a sustained volume of shots. Bridges has another opportunity to share looks from outside with Johnson and Booker, allowing for another avenue to increase points.

Devin Booker Under 29.5 Points (-118, FanDuel)

Booker torched the Jazz last game for 33 points but it came off 35 shots. Bridges struggled and the Suns did not get much offense from anyone up front outside of Bismack Biyombo. The workload should lighten a little bit for Booker which should translate into fewer points. He played 38 minutes last game and should also see a reduction there, making the window a little tighter reaching 30 points. Awesemo has Booker projected for 26.4 points – a full possession between projection and the book. OddsShopper sees this as a 64% xWin chance of hitting but one of the top xROI plays on the board at 25% overall. The Jazz may hang a little tighter this time around but we expect Booker to also have more help around him.

Miles Bridges Over 1.5 Three-Pointers Made (+132, FanDuel)

This is still our Long Distance Launch play but not the typical aggressive return we are used to giving. The main reason is we simply do not need to push this any higher than the actual Over/Under number. We are getting a solid plus-money return on a guy who normally has the volume to take enough shots from deep to knock down two. Reading Bridges’ game log for three-point attempts is like an EKG meter jumping up and down, but we do see one thing about his volume. If he is taking shots, meaning if there is a pathway for him to see more looks from three, his floor is four attempts. Combining who is out for the Suns with a bounce-back game for Bridges, along with a lower projection for Booker, gives us a favorable game script to Bridges.
