I reckon that Game 3 will be the key.

From what I've observed, playing with the advantage of the odds exchange plus rook on b1 is more difficult than playing with the advantage of pawn odds.

Nice first two game. Nakamura played solid chess. Sure he couldn't find a way to get a win, but at least didn't blundered.

So how do you think Nakamura will do on the last two games which will be exchange odds and four move odds?

no clue about four move odds.
exchange could be a draw also. tough to get a win. It's just rook against knight, probably easy to draw for Komodo.

4-move odds is going to be murder.
