NBA Playoffs Nuggets vs. Jazz: Game 3 Predictions, picks and bets


August 21, 2020 1:01 PM

The Nuggets and Jazz are in the middle of one of the better first-round series so far and whoever wins this will take a one-game advantage.

Donovan Mitchell has been unstoppable and if the Nuggets want to take the series lad they will need to find a way to limit his impact.

Here are our best plays for Game 3:

Best Bet: Nuggets (-120*) has a 54% probability

With the series tied at 1-1, both teams will be incredibly eager to get a crucial advantage. The Jazz impressed in Game 2, however, our model is predicting the Nuggets to take out this one. They are slight favorites, but considering our model has them as a 54 percent chance of winning, they are still good value and it's worth considering taking advantage of BetMGM's risk-free bet.


Spread: Jazz +1.5 (-110*) has a 51% probability

After Utah's performance in Game 2, it's no surprise  the spread has been reduced down to 1.5. Mitchell has obviously been the star but the other crucial part to the Jazz's series-leveling victory was Joe Ingles. If the Australian can step up and find the hot hand again, Utah will be right in the contest and if they can't win, it should still go down to the wire.

Over/Under: Over 218.5 (-110*) has a 51% probability 

After the first two games of this series, it's a surprise the Over/Under mark is 218.5 for Game 3. There has been an average of 244.5 total points per game so far, which is clearly a long way over what's been presented as the line in this one. Take the Over with confidence.

Dimers' take-out

This is an enthralling series, that still has no clear top choice. Expect the Nuggets to bounce back in this one and claim victory in what should be another high-scoring contest.
