Phoenix Suns vs Philadelphia 76ers predictions and betting tips

The Phoenix Suns 10-game winning streak came to an end three games ago and since then they’ve won the next two games. The Philadelphia 76ers are back to winning ways after defeating the Bulls in their last game. This is going to be their first meeting this season.

The Suns have won each of the last four matches against the 76ers. The odds favour Philadelphia but I don’t think it’ll be that easy for them. Phoenix may be tired because they’ll be playing two games back-to-back but if Booker turns up and Paul plays just well the Suns will take the win with them. Predictions for this game are Phoenix Suns to win, and over 216.5 points.

Betting prediction: Phoenix Suns to win

Odds: 2.18 (+118 American; 59/50 Fractional)

Betting prediction: Over 216.5 points

Odds: 1.94 (-106 American; 50/53 Fractional)
