Philadelphia 76ers at Phoenix Suns NBA Betting Preview
Sixers Getting to the Hoop
The Philadelphia 76ers are scoring 109 points per game, and they do most of their damage from in the paint and at the free-throw line. Philadelphia is making over 19 free throws per game, and they just continuously put pressure on opposing defenses.
Joel Embiid might be the MVP of the NBA, and he is leading the way with 29.8 points and 11.3 rebounds per game. Embiid has a chance to win the scoring title this season, especially now that he has help from James Harden.
Harden is scoring over 23 points per game for the Sixers, and Tyrese Maxey has emerged into a star as well. This Sixers team just has so many weapons, and they have the ability to score with anyone.
Booker Heating Up For Suns
Devin Booker is scoring over 26 points per game, and he dropped 49 points in the most recent win. Booker continues to be one of the best players in the league, but the best news for the Suns is that Chris Paul is now back in the fold.
Paul spoke about his return after the latest game, saying, “There’s nothing like being part of this team. I’m just happy that I could get back.” Phoenix has very few flaws up and down the roster, and they will head into the playoffs as the number one seed.
The Suns are scoring over 115 points per game this season, and they are also shooting 37 percent from the 3-point line. Phoenix just has an offense that is nearly impossible to stop, and they could take advantage of this Philadelphia defense.
Suns Just Too Explosive
Sunday provides plenty of opportunities to bet online when it comes to the NBA, but this will be the best game of the night. There is a good chance this will be an NBA Finals preview, and there should be plenty of offense in this one.
Playing on the road hasn’t been a problem for the Sixers on this road trip, but visiting the Suns in Phoenix is obviously a much bigger challenge. The Suns just don’t lose very often, and their offense is going to be tough for Philadelphia to deal with.
Don’t expect the Sixers to get blown out in this game, but they just won’t be able to hang in there for the full 48 minutes. Head to BetUS Sportsbook and take the Phoenix Suns -4.5 as they pull away late for an impressive victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.
