76ers vs Suns prediction

The Phoenix Suns obviously have the ability to win this game comfortably, as they're at home and the healthier team. The Philadelphia 76ers are still without Embiid, Covington and Melton, and Harris remains questionable. With that said, the Suns don't take care of business like you'd expect, and they're 26-40-2 ATS on the season. With a cover percentage of 39.3 percent, only the Hawks are worse at covering numbers than the Suns this season. I'm not laying big numbers with the Suns. Give me the 76ers and the points.
