Nuggets vs. Timberwolves, 9:30 p.m. ET
Pick ATS: Nuggets -4
Game 1 was an anomaly but the Nuggets showed why they are the better team in Games 2 and 3. Denver was able to pull away in key stretches in both games, while the Timberwolves were over-reliant on Anthony Edwards to make things happen. The Nuggets were only 11-16 ATS as a road favorite during the regular season but posted a much better 29-25-1 mark after a win. The Timberwolves went 21-22 ATS after a loss during the regular season but it’s clear they don’t have the juice this postseason. Take Denver to complete the sweep Sunday.
Over/Under: Over 225
Once again, Game 1 was a bit of an outlier when it comes to the total. These teams have been fairly evenly matched until the Nuggets pull away and don’t look back. Denver has hit 120+ points in the last two games and the Timberwolves will need to keep up. Look for the total in Game 4 to once again hit the over.
