Here are three prop bets to add to your Game 4 wagers in the Suns-Nuggets matchup with odds and props courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
1. 1st Half Home Team Alternate Total Points - Denver Over 55.5 Points (+144)
The Suns have won and covered all three playoff games against the Nuggets with ease. If fact, Phoenix has won and covered six straight playoff games and neither the Lakers or Nuggets have scored 110 points or more through nine playoff games. Those three double-digit wins over the Nuggets show the Suns defense shutting down Denver to an average of 101.6 points per game. Even with NBA MVP Nikola Jokic scoring 32 points and grabbing 20 rebounds in Game 3, the Nuggets lost by 14 points. However, Denver scored 28 and 30 points in the opening quarter of Game 1, and added 27 and 28 points in the first half of Game 3. Now facing elimination, Denver should come out with its best shot to start Game 4.
2. Nikola Jokic - Over 7.5 Assists
The Suns are averaging 51.5% shooting from the field in the three games in this series, and Phoenix is coming at Denver in waves with its defensive pressure and added depth. The Nuggets are hitting just 42.6% of their shots, and clearly miss injured star guard Jamal Murray in this series. Jokic has shot 39.1% from the field when D'Andre Ayton is his primary defender, including just 2-of-10 from beyond the arc. While Jokic only averaged 4.5 assists per game over the first two contests, he upped that number to 10 in his first game back at home. Jokic averaged 8.3 APG during the regular season, and he's got a real shot to hit this mark again on Sunday night.
3. Michael Porter, Jr. Made Threes - Over 2.5 (-130)
With Jokic dishing more, Michael Porter can become the perimeter scoring option the Nuggets need more of to win. Porter is the Nuggets best 3-point shooter, and he's taken 7, 9 and 8 three-pointers in this series. The Nuggets fired up 41 long-range shots in Game 3, and Porter can score more as he's a tremendously fluid athlete who can also create his own shot. Notably, he's hit at least three 3-pointers in two of his three games in this series and has cleared that total in six of his last eight postseason games as well.
