Look for Anthony Edwards to have a bounce-back game on Monday, while Devin Booker should continue to spark the Suns’ offense as the primary playmaker.
Check out the rest of our Underdog Fantasy NBA player prop picks for January 22. Good luck with your picks!
Edwards struggled in one of the Wolves’ biggest games of the season, ending with a five-point loss to the Thunder after a pair of free throws missed by Ant. However, with Charlotte on tap for tonight, look for the superstar guard to get back on track against a defense 27th in APG allowed and FG% allowed.
Edwards is averaging 2.8 PPG more against Eastern Conference squads this season, so we like the Wolves to win this game while Edwards has a bounce-back performance.
The Suns seem to finally be finding their rhythm, with the core three of Beal, Durant, and Booker healthy and shooting the rock at a high-efficiency rate. Over the Suns' five-game win streak, Booker has hit the 7-assist mark three times while averaging 7.2 APG to just 1.6 TO in that span.
With Durant, Allen, and Beal providing elite spot-up shooting today against Chicago (23rd in APG allowed), expect Book to have himself a day as the primary playmaker.
We are exactly halfway through the season for Chicago, and Coby White has started in every game while shooting the rock nearly 40% from downtown. The Bulls guard has turned it on the last two months, averaging over 21 PPG in December and January.
Plus, in 15 games played against teams out West, White has shot it at a 48% mark from beyond the arc. In a high-scoring affair, we like White to lead Chicago in scoring, most likely getting the worst defender on the court for Phoenix.
With Trae Young doubtful for tonight, let’s take the Capela under which has hit in the last three outings. Sabonis could get the Hawks big man into foul trouble which would limit his usage from about 25 minutes per game to even less.
As Capela continues to struggle in the first month of the year, look for his usage to be limited tonight in a tough matchup.
Keegan has been hot as of late, averaging 17.8 PPG on 52% shooting over his last five. With the Hawks allowing 122.5 PPG (4th-worst) this season, Keegan has a chance to light them up from downtown.
The 2nd-year sharpshooter is averaging over 19 PPG on 44% 3PT shooting this season at home, so we like his “over” in this plus-matchup.
