Phoenix Suns vs Denver Nuggets Betting Tips
Phoenix Suns finished 2nd on the West Conference table in the regular part of the season. However, they were still considered outsiders in the first playoff round against Los Angeles Lakers. They lost two of the first three matches, but since then, the Suns won the next three, so they secured the West Conference semifinal.
Denver Nuggets had one of the craziest series in the first round against Portland Trail Blazers. Most of the NBA analysts predicted that the Blazers will be too good for Murray-less Denver Nuggets, but they found the way to a 4-2 win in series.
Phoenix Suns whole season is playing great at home, so I expect them to record a win in the first game against Denver Nuggets. Also, they should cover AH -4.5 spread.
The Suns are impressive at the home arena in Phoenix this season. They had a 27-9 w/l record at home court this season. Also, it is important to mention that Chris Paul should be ready to play in the first game against Denver after shoulder injury vs the Lakers.
The Suns most important player in the series will be Devin Booker, who averages 29.7 points, 6.2 rebounds, and five assists per game against the Lakers. Also, it is important to see how Ayton and the rest of Phoenix’s big men deal with Nikola Jokic, the best centre in the NBA.

Denver Nuggets finished with 22 wins and 14 losses on the road this season. But, they also lost two of the previous four games away from home.
Denver Nuggets have big injury problems this season. Jamal Murray, the teams’ second-best player, is in the early stages of torn ACL rehab. Also, Will Barton and P.J. Dozier could miss few more games with their injuries.
Luckily for Denver, they have Nikola Jokic. He averaged 33 points, more than ten rebounds, and 4.5 assists in the series against the Trail Blazers. Jokic will be on his level, but the rest of the Nuggets are not that good, so Denver could have many problems against the Suns.
