Philadelphia 76ers vs Phoenix Suns 11/04/2019 NBA Picks and Prediction
Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
Philadelphia 76ers vs Phoenix Suns 11/04/2019 – The Phoenix Suns (4-2) will attempt to do something five teams tried and failed so far this season, and that is toppling the only undefeated team in the NBA right now, the Philadelphia 76ers (5-0). Based on the ATS set for this game, it appears top online sportsbooks are beginning to respect the Suns, who surged to a surprising 4-2 start in the season. The Sixers, the current No.1 team in the Eastern Conference, will enter the game just -120 favorite with -1 points winning margin.

Philadelphia 76ers Betting
The Sixers have now gone undefeated through their first five games. But on Saturday, Philadelphia dodged a big bullet against the Portland Trail Blazers as Furkan Korkmaz hit a go-ahead trey with 0.4 seconds left, gutting out an impressive 129-128 road win without All-Star center Joel Embiid. Korkmaz finished the game with 11 markers, while Tobias Harris and Al Horford combined for 48 points. Point guard Ben Simmons flirted with a triple-double, recording 18 points, 11 rebounds, and 8 assists.
Players to Watch: Tobias Harris (18.6 PPG, 8.6 RPG, and 3.0 APG), Ben Simmons (16.8 PPG, 6.4 APG, and 5.2 RPG), Al Horford (16.8 PPG, 8.2 RPG, and 4.2 APG)
Phoenix Suns Betting
The Phoenix Suns have kept on surprising people going into the second full week of the 2o19-20 NBA season. Though it seems like a fluke at first glance, Phoenix’s torrid start isn’t that shocking at all if you break down the numbers they are putting up through their first six games. The Suns ranked 9th in points per game at 115.2 PPG and 2nd in assists per game at 28.3 APG. An explosive scorer in his first four seasons, Devin Booker has shown a different facet of his game this year with 5.3 APG.
Players to Watch: Devin Booker (23.8 PPG and 5.3 APG), Kelly Oubre Jr. (18.0 PPG and 6.0 RPG), and Aaron Baynes (15.0 PPG, 5.8 RPG, and 3.2 APG)

Philadelphia 76ers vs Phoenix Suns Betting Picks
The Sixers are looking to stay unblemished this season, while the Suns are gunning for a third straight win and a surprising top-4 placing in the loaded Western Conference. Philadelphia has a 6-4 head-to-head record in the last 10 meetings with the Suns, but winning in Phoenix is going to be a lot tougher this time around with Monty Williams doing a fine head coaching job in his first year with the team.
Moneyline: Phoenix (+100) might be a surprise NBA Moneyline pick against East’s elite Sixers, but you better believe in this year’s Suns because they are for real.
ATS: The Suns are an impressive 6-0 against the spread this season. I expect them to stay undefeated in that department with a five-point win over the much-favored Sixers.
TOTALs: The Sixers and the Suns combined for an average of 230 points per game. The O/U total set for this game is 221 points. Philadelphia just allowed Portland to score 128 points in their last outing, showing that their defense lags a bit without Joel Embiid. If that’s the case, I see this game going over since Philadelphia won’t have their top interior defender blocking shots against the Suns.
Score Prediction: 128-120 Suns
