I am going to make up my own example below.

(ex) I am very sleepy today because I did not have enough sleep "over" or "for" or "during" the last three nights.

Which preposition works better in my example above?

1
  • for the last three nights or over the last three nights. Not during. During the day, I often fall asleep.

I would say that you could omit all of your suggestions in that example, eg. "I am very sleepy today because I did not have enough sleep the last three nights".

Personally I would also change 'have' to 'get', as it makes more sense, eg. "I am very sleepy today because I did not get enough sleep the last three nights"
