Both of these teams have been putting in work on the defensive end as the postseason has progressed. Only one of the last 10 playoff games for the Nuggets has gone over the total. I expect to see the Nuggets more methodical grinding out possessions and probing the defense all the while slowing pace of play. I like the under here.
I think the nuggets will stay close in this one being down 2 and they will give it all they got here, Lakers might take there foot of the gas and with joker and Murray playing at such high level I'll take my chances with nuggets and the points to keep it close and maybe sneak in a big WIN. Goodluck!!!
We saw 140 points in game 1 and 208 points in game 2, and I'm leaning towards taking the OVER 214 in game 3. The Nuggets rank 11th this postseason in defensive efficiency and have to push the pace offensively to have any chance here.
Los Angeles Lakers 62-21 (44-38-1 ATS) are playing Denver Nuggets 54-35 (45-41-3 ATS) on September 22, 2020, 9:00 PM ET at AdventHealth Arena. The Nuggets opened at +6.5 and the current line is DEN +6.5.
The Lakers are ranked #10th in offense and 3rd in defense and the Nuggets are ranked #19th in offense and 11th in defense.
Vegas has been overvaluing the Lakers and been expecting too much from the Nuggets lately.
After crunching 135 data points, CaptainObvious's predicted score is Lakers 100 to Nuggets 90.
