Best Bets

When these teams met early in the season the total went Under but I am leaning towards the Over in this game. The Suns have a solid offensive team but star Durant has not scored big in the last two games. I look for him to bounce back in this game and the Suns, who shot over 58% from the floor in their last game, will put up a high total. The 76ers will as well taking advantage of a Phoenix defense that was not impressive in their last game, especially defending the 3-ball. This game will be a high scoring affair like the Suns last game and just like that one the total for this non-conference clash will go Over.
