The Nuggets find themselves with their backs against the wall as they return home on Friday night, and BetRivers.com is proud to provide a wide variety of Suns-Nuggets Game 3 odds, props, teasers and NBA Playoff futures for Friday, June 11. The Suns enter Friday having won five straight since a Game 3 loss to the Lakers. Phoenix beat Denver by 17 in Game 1 and completely dismantled the Nuggets in Game 2 thanks to a 25-point win. But with the series shifting to Denver, the Suns-Nuggets Game 3 odds are more surprising than one would imagine, with the Suns currently 2.5-point underdogs. But that hasn’t stopped the public from backing the Suns with 61% of the ML handle and 68% of the spread handle.

As the saying goes, a series doesn’t start until one team wins a road game. And if you are a Denver fan, you’re going to hope and pray that is true after the Nuggets were worked over in the first two games of this series in Phoenix.
Phoenix won the first two games by a total of 42 points.
And to be frank, I see that continuing now that the series is in Denver.
The issue here is that these Suns are just a terrible matchup for the Nuggets. Deandre Ayton has proven capable of slowing down Nikola Jokic on an island (you don’t stop the Joker, you only hope to contain him) which has put a ton of pressure on Denver’s supporting cast to make things happen. The problem? Jamal Murray is injured. Michael Porter Jr.’s back isn’t right. Austin Rivers has made some really big shots during the Playoffs. Austin Rivers is also Austin Rivers. Are we really counting on Facundo Campazzo and Monte Morris to outplay Devin Booker and Chris Paul?
The Suns moneyline is sitting at +104. That seems good to me.
