The Phoenix Suns and the Philadelphia 76ers duke it out at the Wells Fargo Center on Monday night.

The Phoenix Suns have started the season in great form as they’ve won seven of their first nine games and they will be eager to stay hot after blowing past the shorthanded Trail Blazers in a 102-82 home win on Saturday. Devin Booker led the team with 24 points on nine of 20 shooting, Chris Paul added 15 points with five rebounds and four assists while Mikal Bridges chipped in with 11 points but no other player finished in double figures in scoring. As a team, the Suns shot just 42 percent from the field and 11 of 30 from the 3-point line, but they were focused on the defensive end and never looked in trouble after holding the Trail Blazers to just 14 points in the second quarter to take a 21-point lead into halftime.

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers have been searching for form as they’ve lost six of their first 10 games and they will be hoping to avoid a third straight defeat after coming up just short to the Knicks in a 106-104 loss on Friday. Tyrese Maxey led the way with 31 points and seven assists, Tobias Harris added 23 points, nine rebounds and four assists while Montrezl Harrell chipped in with 14 points. As a team, the 76ers shot just 37 percent from the field and 13 of 47 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in control after pouring in 30 points in the third quarter to build a 12-point lead, only to get run down in the fourth quarter where the Knicks closed the final 3:29 on a 19-11 run to steal the game from them in the end.  

Looking at the betting trends, the Suns are 1-4 ATS in their last five road games, 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a win of more than 10 points and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall. The 76ers are 1-5 ATS in their last six home games, 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games playing on two days’ rest and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games against a team above .600.

Head to head, the over is 18-7-1 in the last 26 meetings overall, the Suns are 4-0-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Philadelphia and the Suns are 5-0-1 ATS in the last six meetings overall.

The Suns are a little shorthanded again as Cameron Payne is questionable while Cameron Johnson has been ruled out. The 76ers just learned that they will be without James Harden for an extended period while Joel Embiid and Danuel House Jr are both questionable for this one. I do expect Embiid to play after he sat out Friday’s game, but I don’t think it will be enough as the Suns should have no trouble getting the win and cover against a slumping 76ers outfit.
