76ers at Suns picks and predictions

Prediction

76ers 125, Suns 118

Moneyline

The Suns may not have Ayton to counter 76ers C Joel Embiid and also don’t have Durant until next week.

The Suns have lost 6 of their last 7 games and, while they are 23-12 at home, they have lost 2 of 3 without Durant and that one win was against the under-.500 Magic.

The 76ers are 23-13 on the road.

Getting them with even-money odds against a struggling Suns team is perfect.

BET 76ERS (+100).

Against the spread

The 76ers have covered the spread in 5 of their last 7 games.

The Suns are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games.

But with even odds on the moneyline for an outright win for Philly, place your wager there and not on the spread.

PASS.

Over/Under

The Over is 4-0 in the Suns’ last 4 games. They have allowed 122 points or more in each of their last 3 games.

The 76ers have averaged 122.0 points over their last 11 games. Nine of their last 10 games have had 226 total points or more.

BET OVER 225.5 (-110).
