The Nuggets are 19-7 ATS in their last 26 Monday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Suns are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The over is 6-1 in Nuggets last 7 overall. The under is 4-1-1 in Suns last 6 overall. The Nuggets are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Phoenix and 14-6 ATS in the last 20 meetings.

The Suns should be favored at home and they're actually my pick right now to come out of the West. However, the Nuggets are too good to turn down a decent amount of free points. The Nuggets have been cooking offensively in these playoffs and that should continue. The Nuggets have also won eight of the last 10 meetings against the Suns, including two road overtime wins back in January. I like the Suns to win this series, but I can't leave this many free points on the table with the Nuggets.
