The Indiana Pacers lost the first game of the Pascal Siakam era on Friday night, but they’ll look to bounce back on the road against the Phoenix Suns and their Big 3 of Kevin Durant, Bradley Beal, and Devin Booker. 

As fun as the Suns have been to watch with all three players healthy, they’ve been almost impossible to figure out in the prop market. 

I’m going to take a stab on a Beal prop today, but my favorite play is for Pacers All-Star guard Tyrese Haliburton, who returned from a hamstring injury in the team's last game.

Let’s break down these props and their odds for Sunday night’s action: 

Pacers vs. Suns best NBA prop bets 

  • Tyrese Haliburton OVER 37.5 points, rebounds and assists
  • Bradley Beal OVER 1.5 3-pointers made
  • First Quarter Total OVER 61.5 points

Tyrese Haliburton OVER 37.5 points, rebounds and assists

Tyrese Haliburton returned to action on Friday and promptly put together a 21-point, 17-assist, two-rebound game in a loss to Portland. 

Hali is averaging 23.6 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 12.6 assists per game this season, and now he has another All-Star caliber player in Pascal Siakam on his roster. 

Haliburton’s assist numbers should continue to stay high, but I think he could be due for some positive regression in the scoring column after taking just 14 shots against the Blazers. 

On the season, Haliburton is averaging 16.9 field goal attempts per game. If Haliburton comes closer to his season average for points, he should be a lock to clear this prop against Phoenix in what could be a high-scoring affair between two elite offenses. 

Bradley Beal OVER 1.5 3-pointers made

I don’t mind taking a shot on Bradley Beal plus money to hit multiple shots from beyond the arc in this game. 

Beal has taken at least four shots from deep in four straight games, including a game where he took 10 3-pointers (making eight), and another where he attempted six (making four). 

It’s hard to determine who will lead the Suns in usage every night, but I feel like this number is a value for Beal given his usage and shooting prowess (38.8 percent from 3 this season). 

First Quarter Total OVER 61.5 points

These are two of the best first-quarter teams in the NBA, as the Pacers average 30.7 points per game in the opening period while the Suns average 29.5. That number has jumped to 33 per game for Phoenix over its last three games. 

The Suns rank just 25th in the NBA in pace, but they may get sped up by the Pacers, who are No. 2 in that category.

The return on Haliburton and the addition of Siakam give Indiana a little more offensive firepower, and the Suns have three generational scorers on their roster that are realy starting to mesh together. 

This is a high number, but Phoenix has played first quarters with 69, 66 and 64 combined points in its last three games. I’ll go OVER with the Suns facing the best offense in the NBA.
