Vegas Over/Under: 42.5
The Record Projection: 40-42 of fromal The Bet: Hammer the beneath The Philadelphia 76ers seem to one day be the best team in the Eastern Conference on track. However, let’s not by expecting too much, too 16, create an air of disappointment.
Vegas, likely capitalizing on the excitement that surrounds all of the future stars, is already doing this. Betting below is just one of the easiest sports stakes of this year.
Joel Embiid is not guaranteed to keep healthier. Markelle Fultz and Ben Simmons have played in a combined zero games. The remainder of the roster is laden with upside down, but they are by no means guaranteed to break through and create strongly positive results in 2017-18.
Lest we forget, the Sixers went 28-54 during the 2016-17 season. Should you bet the above, you’re counting on a minimum of a 15-game improvement, and that’s rather a good deal to ask.
Of course, arguments exist on the contrary. Philadelphia had numerous turnover issues last year that counting on two newcomer playmakers to lead the charge isn’t actually an issue. It won 28 games with Embiid only suiting up 31 occasions, and the two numbers are most likely to trend up moving forward, especially with more depth surrounding the gifted centre.
