This is a potential NBA Finals preview, with the Philadelphia 76ers taking on the Phoenix Suns Sunday evening. The 76ers look to capitalize on Joel Embiid’s MVP-level season, while the Suns hope to rebound from last season’s disappointing Finals exit. Both teams should be fairly intact, although the Suns are missing Cameron Johnson with a quad injury.

The Suns are 3.5-point favorites per DraftKings Sportsbook, with the total set at 228.

76ers vs. Suns, 6:00 p.m. ET

Pick ATS: Suns -3.5

Phoenix is on a seven-game winning streak and has started to get back into a groove with Chris Paul’s return. The Suns are averaging a whopping 130.0 points per game over the last five, so they’re playing their best basketball offensively. The 76ers are also on a nice winning streak but this Suns squad is better than any they’ve faced of late. Take Phoenix to win and cover in this one.

Over/Under: Over 228

As mentioned above, the Suns are clicking offensively. Philadelphia will have to match that output offensively and has the stars to do so, meaning there’s a great chance the over will hit. It’s not too high of a total either, so count on both teams to put up enough points to trigger the over.
