Friday's slate of NBA postseason games includes a Game 3 between the Denver Nuggets and Minnesota Timberwolves. FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NBA odds list the Nuggets as the 2-point road favorite with the projected total set at 222.

Here are three of the best NBA player prop bets for the Nuggets-Timberwolves game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Nuggets vs Timberwolves Player Props

1. Jamal Murray — Made Threes: Over 3.5 (+132)

While this prop is a riskier one, Jamal Murray's been too solid from three-point range over the last month to ignore. The Nuggets guard is averaging 3.7 threes with a 50.0% success rate over his last 11 games and has already shot 10-of-20 from downtown through his first two outings against the Timberwolves. Furthermore, Murray has ended the night with 4+ three-pointers in each of his last three games. Minnesota surrenders the seventh-highest three-point percentage, so as long as Murray keeps seeing similar volume (8.1 three-point attempts over his last eight games), hitting the Over is more than doable.

2. Anthony Edwards — Points: Over 25.5 (-120)

The Timberwolves didn't get the job done in Game 2, but it wasn't all bad. Anthony Edwards ended the night with 41 points on .609/.600/.875 shooting splits, putting him in an excellent position to keep things going tonight. Keeping that in mind, I like his chances of hitting the over on this prop. Edwards is averaging a 25.8 PPG clip in his previous eight outings, finishing with the over in half of those contests. He's also finished with 26-plus points twice in his last five meetings against Denver at the Target Center. With the T-Wolves needing a win to avoid falling into an 0-3 hole, expect big things from Edwards tonight.

3. Nikola Jokic — Rebounds + Assists: Under 20.5 (-106)

I can see Nikola Jokic finishing with the under on this combo prop tonight. While he's a talented playmaker and rebounder, he's "only" averaging 11.2 rebounds and 8.5 assists over his last 11 games, good for a combo of just 19.7. On top of that, Jokic finished with a combination of under 20.5 in nine of those outings. Sure, he's capable of going off on any given night, but the Nuggets are the clear-cut better team and don't need Jokic to give his maximum effort to win. He'll still make his impact felt tonight, but it likely won't be with massive rebound and assist totals.
