The Nuggets were not going to let the Trail Blazers come into Denver and leave with two wins. Now, it’s up to Nikola Jokic and the Nugs to break back with a win in Portland.

Let’s take a deep dive into the different wagering markets with our Nuggets vs. Trail Blazers Game 3 betting pick, complete with the best odds, prop predictions, and analysis.

Betting Prediction

This is the kind of series that already looks like it’s going seven games. Nikola Jokic and Damian Lillard are two of the very best in the NBA and they are going to be trading jabs all series long. Lillard got the best of Denver in Game 1, but Jokic didn’t allow those good feelings to last very long.

Nuggets coach Michael Malone made some adjustments to get his team going after Game 1 and it worked to perfection. We will see if Portland coach Terry Stotts can readjust to those adjustments. That’s what the playoffs are all about.

Bets We Like With A Nuggets Win

Nikola Jokic Over 32.5 Points (+100)

In past years, this would be too high to roll the dice on Jokic, but the 2020-21 season has been much different. Jokic is scoring more than he ever has before, but it’s not that he’s playing selfishly. In fact, teams are looking to stop him from creating for his teammates more than anything.

That’s exactly what the Blazers are trying to do in this series. Make Jokic a scorer. At plus money, the over on Jokic’s points is the move.

Bets We Like With A Trail Blazers Win

Damian Lillard Over 4.5 Threes (+120)

The Blazers aren’t going anywhere without Lillard playing well. He’s done that through two games and we don’t expect to see him slowing down anytime soon. Lillard has already hit 14 threes in this series on 28 attempts. The only way this prop doesn’t hit is if Lillard goes ice cold. He’s going to take a ton of threes in every game. Again, getting this at plus-money is an absolute steal.

Trail Blazers vs. Nuggets Game 3 Prediction

It ain’t easy trying to pick a winner between the Blazers and Nuggets. This series is going to at least six games, and probably seven. As a mini-cop out, we’re taking the over on the points in this game. Neither team has had an answer for the other team’s star player through two games. Look for Lillard and Jokic to have big nights in a shootout.
