Let’s dive into my SGP bet now!

PHX Suns ML (+108)

Devin Booker to Score 30+ Points (+250)

Same Game Parlay odds: +408

PHX Suns ML (+108)

The Suns haven’t done much in this series to warrant us backing them here, but I am still going to give them the benefit of the doubt just because of the talent they have on the team. Kevin Durant, Devin Booker and Bradley Beal should be able to get at least one win in a series, no matter how strong the opponent is. No team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit in the NBA postseason and I don’t expect that to be the case here either.

The Lakers were able to avoid the brooms in their series against the Nuggets, it’s time for Phoenix’s big guns to step up here and avoid humiliation. After going for more than 33 mins without a three in Game 3, the Suns woke up and caught fire in the 4th quarter, if they are able to sustain that type of effort for 48 minutes here they’ll be in a good position. Despite trailing 3-0 in the series, this team is still 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games vs Minnesota and 13-5 SU in the last 18 meetings overall. Let’s go with the Suns in Game 4 after which Minnesota closes things out at home in Game 5.

Devin Booker to Score 30+ Points (+250)

Booker has been largely invisible in this series so far, averaging a very modest by his standards 20.3 points per game. He’s deferred a lot to Durant and Beal, and we’re seeing the results of that strategy. With no more time left to experiment with their strategy, I think the Suns will try to do it the old fashioned way and give Booker the ball and get out of the way in Game 4. His production has gone up in the series every single game, as has his field goal percentage. Booker finished April averaging 27.9 points per game and had a pair of 40 and 52 point performances, so this type of drop-off in production is very unusual to see. If the Suns are going to go out here, you can bet Booker will put up as many shots as possible.
