Chris Paul Special - 1+ 3PM, 1+ Steal, 1+ 1Q AST +120 (Bet $100 to win $120)

There are obviously different ways you can play this on different books, but I really like this combo. Chris Paul has been extremely reliable this postseason (shocker right?) and should see a huge workload in a pivotal game. Thus far, the Suns strategy has worked. They are up 2-0 and have enough playoff experience to know it's time to end this series as fast as possible. 

So far in this series, Chris Paul has 1+ 3PM in both games, going 2-5 and 1-2 from beyond the arc. Looking at the whole postseason, he has 1+ 3PM in 6 of 8 games, with misses coming in 3 & 4 attempt games. Paul is never gonna be the highest volume 3-point shooter, but he will have multiple good opportunities to cash this number. CP3 is a clutch player, and big game players tend to rise to the occasion. 

Paul has also been holding it down on both sides of the ball, recording a steal in every playoff game thus far. CP3 averaged 1.7 steals per game during the regular season against the Mavs, and he’s continued that trend, grabbing a steal in both games this series. Paul has also been reliable in the first quarter all season long, averaging 2+ 1Q assists. In the postseason, CP3 has 1+ first quarter assist in 24 of his last 25 games, and I expect that to continue tonight. Let's get a nice and easy lob to DeAndre Ayton to start the night out.

Devin Booker 6+ 1Q Points/1+ 1Q REB -115 (Bet $115 to win $100)

Running this back from the last article, and I can't believe we are getting it again. Booker's first quarter line is 9.5 on Fanduel, for good reason. Booker was top 3 in the NBA in regular season first quarter scoring, and has continued to play the full 12 minutes when healthy in the postseason. Booker is over this number in both games this series, and will continue to see massive volume. He has 1+ rebounds in five of five postseason games, and has been extremely successful getting that number all season long. This may be the last time they let us bet this, let's take advantage of it.
