NBA First Basket Prop Pick: Devin Booker & Deandre Ayton

EDITOR'S NOTE — Deandre Ayton has been ruled out Game 6 with a rib contusion. For real-time injury updates, check out our FantasyLabs NBA news page.

The Phoenix Suns host the Denver Nuggets on Thursday night in Game 6 of their NBA playoff series.

Deandre Ayton (72% opening tip win rate) will square off against Nikola Jokic (47% win rate) for the opening tip-off. Ayton has won his last four tip-offs versus Jokic and has won five of the eight on the season.

These teams have played nine games against each other this season and postseason, with Denver scoring the first basket in five of the nine games.  Jokic, Jamal Murray, Aaron Gordon, Reggie Jackson and Michael Porter Jr. have all cashed first-basket tickets for the Nuggets, while Devin Booker (three times) and Cameron Payne have cashed first-basket tickets for the Suns.

Phoenix is in a must-win situation, so I expect it to come out fighting tonight, including for the opening tip-off. I like Booker and Ayton to get up shots in early possessions, so I'll take both of them to score first.

The Picks:

  • DraftKings 1st Field Goal — Booker +400  (0.65 Units · Play to +350)
  • FanDuel 1st Basket — Ayton +700 (0.35 Units · Play to +500)

Pick: Deandre Ayton 1st Basket (+700)
