1u – Mikal Bridges over 2.5 assists (+115) (Bet $100 to win $115)

When you think of the Phoenix Suns and distributing the basketball, Chris Paul is the first name that comes to mind. Devin Booker has also been impressive finding his teammates in good spots of late. Another player that has been flying under the radar is forward Mikal Bridges.

Through two games in the Western Conference Semi-Finals series with the Dallas Mavericks, Bridges has recorded 4 and 6 assists in those games. The line right now is set at 2.5 at plus money (+115), which I really like. This isn’t a stretch either, as Bridges has recorded at least 2 assists in his last 10 games. On top of that Bridges had 8 potential assists in Game 2, leading to 6 assists. He also had 8 potential assists in Game 1, leading to 4 assists.

Bridges isn't passing the ball to nobodies here. We are talking Devin Booker, Chris Paul, Deandre Ayton and a supporting cast including Jae Crowder, who seems to have rediscovered his touch from deep. I like Bridges to go over 2.5 assists in this game. I’ll stick with the limited sample size of two games this series with Bridges, and put 1 unit on this straight.

For those that love ladder plays, Bridges is currently at +255 to record 4+ assists, and +1100 to record 6+ assists. I'll focus on the straight play here.
