The favorite is 24-8 ATS in the last 32 meetings between the two teams. The road team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The 76ers will be without Joel Embiid in this one, as he finishes serving his 2 game suspension. Even with Embiid out, I like the 76ers in this spot. The road team has been profitable in this situation, but I also like the mismatch the 76ers will have with the Suns big man out, DeAndre Ayton serving his long suspension. Final score prediction, 76ers win and cover, 109-106.
