Phoenix Suns Betting
The Phoenix Suns maximized the advantage given to them being the higher seeded team in the series and held home court. They went to Game 3 trying to do their homework early and took another game as they are now one win away from advancing to the NBA Western Conference finals. Chris Paul was vintage by doing 27 points, eight assists and six rebounds but it was Devin Booker who led the team in scoring with 28. DeAndre Ayton did well matching up with Nikola Jokic finishing with a double-double of 10 points and 15 rebounds. Jae Crowder and Mikal Bridges combined for 25 points.

Denver Nuggets Betting
The Denver Nuggets are just being overpowered by the Utah Jazz in this series as they seemed to give up the fight early. Nikola Jokic went all out having monster numbers of 32 points, 20 rebounds and ten assists but the team still fell short. Monte Morris came off the bench doing 21 points and five assists while Michael Porter Jr. had 15 points. Will Barton contributed 14 points but it took him 14 shots to get there. This team needs to step it up defensively as the Suns shot 53% during Game 4. The offense has been clicking when Jokic has the ball but he needs his supporting cast for help.
