The Nuggets are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Suns are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 7-1 in Nuggets last 8 overall. The over is 23-10-1 in Suns last 34 overall. The Nuggets are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Phoenix and 14-6 ATS in the last 20 meetings.

The Nuggets and this many points is hard to pass up. However, we've seen the Nuggets have defensive issues in past playoff games and those concerns showed up in game one on Monday. If the Nuggets are going to allow the Suns to shoot 50-plus percent from the field, they're going to get run off the court. I have the Suns winning this series and also like their chances to come out of the West. I'm not in love with the line, but it's Suns or pass for me.
