The Philadelphia 76ers and the Phoenix Suns duke it out at the Footprint Center on Sunday night.
The Philadelphia 76ers have been in great shape as they’ve won five of their last six games overall and they will be aiming for a fourth straight victory after routing the Clippers in a 122-97 road win on Friday. James Harden led the team with 29 points, 15 rebounds and seven assists, Joel Embiid added 27 points with 10 rebounds while Matisse Thybulle chipped in with 13 points on five of six shooting. As a team, the 76ers shot 46 percent from the field and 15 of 35 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 35 points in the first quarter to take an early double-digit lead which they held right till the end as they kept the Clippers in check on the defensive end.
Meanwhile, the Phoenix Suns have been on fire as they’ve won 11 of their last 13 games overall and they will be hoping to add to their seven-game win streak after taking down the Nuggets in a 140-130 road win on Thursday. Devin Booker led the team with 49 points and 10 assists, Mikal Bridges added 22 points on eight of nine shooting while Chris Paul chipped in with 17 points and 13 assists. As a team, the Suns shot a healthy 60 percent from the field and 13 of 27 from the 3-point line as they kept pace with the Nuggets in a close contest, until the fourth quarter where they outscored the Nuggets by 36-24 to pull away and win comfortably in the end.
Looking at the betting trends, the 76ers are 1-3-1 ATS in their last five road games, 1-4 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning record and 1-5 ATS in their last six games overall. The Suns are 2-6 ATS in their last eight home games, 4-1 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning record and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall.
Head to head, the over is 6-0 in the last six meetings in Phoenix, the 76ers are 0-4-1 ATS in the last five meetings overall and the 76ers are 6-13 ATS in the last 19 meetings in Phoenix.
The 76ers are coming into this game at full strength with is a rarity in the league this season, while the Suns are a little shorthanded as Cameron Johnson and JaVale McGee are both listed as out. It’s tempting to go with the 76ers who are coming into this game with plenty of momentum after routing the Clippers in their last outing, but the Suns have been on an absolute tear lately and they’re so much better with Chris Paul back in the lineup. This should be a close one, but the 76ers are only 6-13 ATS in the last 19 meetings in Phoenix and I think that trend continues here.
