Watermelon & Onions-Companion planting

Lexington, KY(Zone 6b)

Does anyone know if it would be okay to plant a few Sugar Baby Watermelon next to some yellow onions in a raised bed! I was planning to plant bush beans until I found out that was a no-no.

I have seen watermelons grow next to leeks and garlic , I don't really know though.
Seems like it would be okay to me , onions might even deter borers ?
