Of course, winning is easier said than done, and for their dreams to come alive, their best players need to step up. We think they will – new NBA MVP Joel Embiid and ex-MVP Nikola Jokic are guaranteed to put on a show tonight.

Prop Pick

Joel Embiid is the 2023 MVP for a reason. He’s having a fantastic season, with his form keeps improving. In the last three games, he scored a total of 97 points or 32.33 PPG. We also saw him record 33 rebounds in those games, along with 10 assists.

Now, his team needs him to do even better than before. With a superb performance by Embiid, the 76ers are almost certainly going to win tonight.

Prop Pick

The Suns are coming home where they’re always great. Beating them is going to be a big challenge for the Nuggets. That’s something these guys haven’t done in a while. In fact, each of the last five Nuggets at Suns games played at Footprint Center was won by the home team.

The last time these two played in Arizona, the Nuggets did come relatively close to ending the disappointing run. They lost by just five points in Game 4. Nikola Jokic had a vintage performance that evening, putting away 53 points, four rebounds, and 11 assists. Although we doubt he’s going to score 50+ tonight, we’re certain he’s going to do well.

NBA Player PropOdds
Nikola Jokic: Pts + Reb + Ast at least 53
