A 27-point win in Game 3 eased some of the pressure off the Denver Nuggets, but they still have a lot of work to do as they head into Target Center for Game 4 of their series against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Tipoff is at 8:00 pm ET on TNT and I have prepared a Same Game Parlay, which is available below.

Let’s dive into my SGP bet now!

Nuggets ML (+118)

Anthony Edwards to score 30+ points (+120)

Same Game Parlay odds: +400

Nuggets ML (+118)

Nikola Jokic and co. had us scared there for a second after falling down 2-0 in this series. Fresh off of his 3rd MVP award, the Serbian big man responded in a big way leading his Nuggets to a convincing 27 point win in Game 3. It wasn’t just the Joker though, Jamal Murray had the best game of his series with 24 points, while Michael Porter Jr. also delivered 21 points on just 10 field goal attempts. If the Nuggets come out with the same sense of urgency tonight like they did in Friday’s game, I am convinced they can even this series before it shifts to Denver for Game 5. Limiting turnovers, especially in the first half, could be the key. Minnesota rushed quite a few of their shots in Game 3 and that’s where their inexperienced showed. I have the defending champions stepping it up a notch once again and levelling this series before a crucial Game 5 takes place at Ball Arena.

Anthony Edwards to Score 30+ Points (+120)

Anthony Edwards was neutralized for the most part in Game 3 as he scored his 2nd lowest point total this postseason, finishing with just 19 points. Even he himself admitted in a post game interview how he came out flat and wasn’t aggressive enough in the 37 mins he spent on the floor. The numbers back that claim up – Ant Man finished without a single free throw attempt for the first time in 18 postseason games he’s ever played in. I’m expecting a bounce back performance, prior to Game 3 he had at least 27 points in 5 of 6 games, with a pair of 40+ points to close out Phoenix and to open the series vs Denver. He averaged 26 points per game in 4 meetings vs the defending champions while shooting over 48% from the field. Too bad his 30 point effort will come in a losing effort tonight.
