Minnesota Timberwolves vs Phoenix Suns Game 3: BETTING TIPS, PREDICTION & BETTING ODDS

If you’re the Minnesota Timberwolves you must be feeling really good after the first two games of the series vs Phoenix. All the doubters have gone silent and Minnesota has the Suns on the ropes following two dominant performances, especially on the defensive end. Will that continue on the road in Game 3? The Suns won both meetings at home during the regular season by double-digits, so the T’Wolves are facing an uphill battle here. One thing they have to continue doing is playing physical basketball. I’ve been impressed with Jaden McDaniels so far, he has showed no fear going head-to-head against Kevin Durant and also dropping 25 points on the other end. Minnesota is 10-4 ATS in their last 14 road games, however at Phoenix they’ve failed to cover in 6 straight visits.

I’d argue the Suns have been the biggest disappointment so far this postseason. A team with a big 3 of Durant, Booker and Beal has failed to crack the 100 point mark in back-to-back games, that has to feel very deflating if you’re a Suns fan. They also had some bad luck on the injury front, losing their best three-point shooter Grayson Allen who twisted his ankle in both games and is likely to miss the rest of this series. We’ve seen this movie before though, Phoenix was in a similar situation last year when they were down 2-0 against the Nuggets in the West semi finals. They were able to respond with two dominant performances on the offensive end which leveled the series, led by Durant and Booker. We’ve not yet seen those two flourish in these playoffs, tonight could be the night as they find themselves in familiar surroundings.

Phoenix Suns Point Spread Prediction

Suns -4.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

Phoenix is desperate for a result here, just like the Philadelphia 76ers were last night vs the Knicks. This team is too good to go down 3-0 here, they had a 25-16 SU record in home games this season. I’ll take them to cover in Game 3.

Minnesota Timberwolves vs Phoenix Suns Game 3 Total Points Prediction: Over 207.5

Over 207.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

I feel like I’m sounding like a broken record here, but the Suns have to speed things up here and play at their pace in order to beat Minnesota. In 2 of the 3 wins against them in the regular season they dropped 133 and 125 points, cashing on the over in both of those games. For tonight the projected total has been set at a modest 207.5 points, which is almost 7 points less than what it was in the first 2 games. That number was surpassed in Game 1 of the series with ease. Minnesota has now cashed on the over in 5 of 7 games, plus in 41 road games they were 23-18 on the O/U. Phoenix is a way better offensive team at home this year compared to when they play on the road. They were the 4th best three-point shooting team when playing at the Footprint Center, I’m sure they’ll get their confidence back in front of the home crowd following back-to-back poor shooting games. With the last 10 meetings averaging 223 points per game, I’m opting to back the over in Game 3.
