The Phoenix Suns took down the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of the 2021 NBA Finals on Tuesday night. The Suns closed out the second half behind a big performance from Chris Paul, who scored 32 points in the 118-105 victory to take a 1-0 series lead. While CP3 had a huge game, he wasn’t the reason the public made out with a ton of cash. We’re going to look over the top 5 most profitable player prop bets on DraftKings Sportsbook from Game 1.

First field goal bets are always fun and usually make bettors a decent amount given the steep odds. Lopez was able to get it done on Tuesday night at 8/1 odds. He also had a pretty decent night with 17 points, hitting the over on his points prop.

Cameron Johnson ended up at 2 of the top 5 spots with his O1.5 3-pointers and O6.5 points props on DKSB. Both numbers appeared to be a bit low given Johnson is one of the only bench players getting minutes for Phoenix. He played 21 minutes, scoring 10 points with 2 treys in the win.

Deandre Ayton was a beast on the glass, finishing with a 22-19 double-double. He didn’t even need any assists to get to the over of 28.5 combined points, rebounds and assists in 39 minutes. We can expect Ayton’s double-double and rebounding lines to be popular bets heading into Game 2.
