76ers vs Suns Prediction, Odds and NBA Picks Wednesday, March 20

The finish line for the 2023-24 season for the Philadelphia 76ers and Phoenix Suns is quickly approaching, and neither team is where it would like to be in the standings. That could make the NBA player props more interesting for this matchup, with All-Star-level talent looking to have a massive impact.

In the 76ers’ last game, they beat the Miami Heat 98-91 in a crucial matchup for the Eastern Conference standings. On the other hand, the Phoenix Suns lost to the Milwaukee Bucks 140-129 in a somewhat concerning game.

While this is an inter-conference matchup, whatever team wins will affect NBA future bets.

76ers vs Suns ATS Pick: 76ers +9

It is hard to trust either team in NBA picks right now. Without Embiid, the 76ers have been a shell of themselves, with a record of 9-13 since Jan. 30, the last game he played. The 76ers also have a net rating of -5.8, the seventh worst during that time.

However, the Suns have also been unreliable recently. Over the last 10 games, they have a record of 5-5, but they have only covered NBA spreads twice. There have been many issues throughout the Suns’ season, but the worst has been their troubles in the fourth quarter.

Over the last 10 games, the Suns have a net rating of -12.9 in the fourth quarter, the fourth worst in the league. The 76ers have not been much better, with the second-worst net rating in the fourth quarter (-15.4) during that time.


Still, the reason to back the 76ers to cover in this game is the Suns’ last loss to the Bucks. Kevin Durant has hit a shooting slump, scoring only 11 points on 10 shots in the last game. He is averaging 14.7 points in the previous three games, well below his season average of 27.8.

In addition, while the 76ers have struggled overall, they have won their last two games. They beat the Charlotte Hornets 109-98 before winning against the Heat.

 

 

76ers vs Suns Over/Under Pick: Under 222½

With Embiid out for the games and Durant struggling offensively, it is safe to say that NBA odds could lean toward the under for this game. Yes, other All-Stars like Tyrese Maxey and Devin Booker will be on the court, but both teams have consistently hit the under over the last 10 games.

Both teams have only hit the over three times in the previous 10 games, highlighting the struggling offenses. Picking the under is undoubtedly helped by both teams struggling in the fourth quarter. Neither the 76ers nor the Suns have found an offensive rhythm late in games, which should help this matchup stay low-scoring and hit the under.

 

 

Player Prop Pick: Kevin Durant Under 24.5 points (-121)

The Suns have been used to Durant’s solid offensive numbers all season as he leads the team in points per game. However, this stretch has not been great for the four-time scoring champ. Averaging 14.7 points over the last three games should indicate he is potentially hitting the under once again against the 76ers.
