On Tuesday afternoon, the Sixers and Suns meet in a game with massive playoff implications, especially for Phoenix. Let’s get into our Sixers-Suns betting preview, including odds, boosts, and picks.
The Sixers remain a half game behind Indiana for the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference, which would ensure a first-round matchup against the Boston Celtics. The Sixers will be without their two biggest stars Ben Simmons -who’s likely done for the season- and Joel Embiid. Additionally, starting SG Josh Richardson is also out, while Al Horford and Tobias Harris are questionable.
Phoenix is a game behind the Memphis Grizzlies for eighth place in the Western Conference with two games to play. It’s worth noting that since Memphis was unable to put four full games between themselves and ninth-place, the Suns and Trail Blazers are effectively in a battle to procure the eighth or ninth seed for a two-game series. In that series, the eighth seed only needs to win one game to advance, so there’s still plenty of incentive for Phoenix to try to leapfrog both Memphis and Portland.
