NBA Playoffs same game parlay (+1309 odds): Phoenix Suns vs. Denver Nuggets

NBA Playoffs same game parlay (+1309 odds): Phoenix Suns vs. Denver Nuggets

The NBA Playoffs rolls on and we can enjoy our Friday night with a pair of Game 3s on ESPN this evening. The Philadelphia 76ers and Atlanta Hawks get things started at 7.30pm ET before a huge matchup for the Denver Nuggets as they host the Phoenix Suns knowing that defeat tonight will all but eliminate them from the playoffs.

To celebrate that huge matchup we’ve put together a same game parlay for Suns vs. Nuggets to add to the excitement. But don’t forget to check out our picks on the side and total for both of tonight’s games, where our experts have been on fire throughout the postseason.

Denver Nuggets -3.5 alternate spread (+120)

Nikola Jokic to score 35+ points (+250)

Chris Paul over 10.5 assists (+120)

Parlay odds: +1309

Denver Nuggets -3.5 alternate spread (+120)

With the series now in Denver for Game 3, the Nuggets are small favorites at home. Their desperation meter has to be off the charts for this one and I am expecting a strong performance. Denver is 27-12 SU at home this season and their splits are pretty normal with them scoring more at home but nothing too drastic. During the regular season, Denver did go 2-1 against the Suns and the two wins came by four and eight points, so they’ve proven they can beat this team. With the help of a packed home arena, they should be able to get back into this series tonight.

Be sure to check out our full game preview for Phoenix Suns vs. Denver Nuggets.

Nikola Jokic to score 35+ points (+250)

In the first two games of this series, we saw mediocre outputs by the MVP as far as points go. He’s averaging only 23 per game and hasn’t been as aggressive as we would have hoped he would be — in Game 1 he didn’t attempt a single free throw. That should all change tonight as the Nuggets finally get to play in front of their own fans. He will also receive his MVP trophy before tip-off which should fire him up. Michael Porter Jr. has struggled mightily in this series due to a lingering back injury — he’s only averaging 10.5 points per game through two — so look for Jokic to fill that void as Porter Jr. is still not at 100 percent. We expect a higher-scoring game here, and if the Nuggets want to get back into this series then their MVP will need to carry them.

Chris Paul over 10.5 assists (+120)

Paul is having quite possibly his best postseason run and he’s doing so at the age of 36. He’s had full control of this series so far — in Game 1 he had 11 assists and just one turnover. He followed that up with a historic performance in Game 2 with 15 assists and zero turnovers while scoring 17 points on 60 percent shooting in just 31 minutes on the floor. In his last three games, he has gone over 10.5 assists, and the shoulder injury he had against the Lakers is now a thing of the past. He is dominating like we’re accustomed to seeing from him. The series now goes to Denver and the intensity will go up a notch or two. Paul is a savvy veteran and he will know how to respond.
