The Phoenix Suns hold a commanding 3-0 series lead against the Denver Nuggets, and Phoenix enters Game 4 as a 3.5-point favorite to close out the second round series.

Originally, the Nuggets opened Game 4 as a 1.5-point favorite but bettors have since heavily favored the Suns and pushed the line in the other direction toward Phoenix’s favor, according to Odds Shark.

The over/under for Sunday’s matchup opened at 221.5 points but was then moved to 222.

Other books also have Game 4 at 221.5 as well.

The Suns are currently riding a six-game winning streak and have not lost a playoff game since being down 2-1 to the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round series.

During this winning streak, Phoenix has put up at least 100 points in all of their victories and have limited their opponents to score under triple digits on three separate occasions.

Additionally, the Suns have won five games during this stretch by 10 points or more, which is the second longest streak in NBA playoff history.

Throughout the second round matchup, the Suns are averaging 120.3 points per game while the Nuggets are putting up 101.6 points per contest.

In Game 3, the Suns came out red hot to begin the game and scored 37 points in the first quarter.

Devin Booker and Chris Paul led Phoenix to victory as the Suns backcourt combined for a total of 55 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists.

NBA MVP Nikola Jokić put up a triple-double in Game 3 with 32 points, 20 rebounds and 10 assists, however it wasn’t enough as the Nuggets still lost by 14 on Friday, 116-102.

The Suns’ odds to sweep the Nuggets and close out the series definitely seems to be in their favor, no team in the NBA has lost a playoff series after going up 3-0.
