Philadelphia 76ers Odds, Betting Guide & Picks for 2019-20
The Philadelphia 76ers prioritized Tobias Harris over Jimmy Butler in free agency, flipped Butler for Josh Richardson and signed Al Horford to a four-year deal. Richardson and Horford join Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons as arguably the league’s best four-man group. The role pieces all fit, too, and playing in the East gives the 76ers a legitimate shot to win the NBA title.
Here’s the key odds available and how you should bet them:
76ers Win-Total Betting
The Line: 53.5 with 888sport
The 76ers won 51 games last season while adjusting on the fly to in-season acquisitions of Butler and Harris. Embiid missed 18 games and the 76ers finished the season 4-6. Don’t expect a lull this season. They have a real shot at the top seed in the East.
The Bet: They should hit this mark, and it’s a great bet to back.
76ers Atlantic Division Odds
The Line: -155 with DraftKings
The Celtics and Raptors were two of the biggest offseason losers, while the Nets will have to wait a year to contend with Kevin Durant. The door is open for the 76ers to run away with this division.
The Bet: It’d be a significant upset if they don’t win the Atlantic. We like them to wrap this up with plenty of time to spare.
76ers Eastern Conference Odds
The Line: +220 with FanDuel
The East could come down to the 76ers and Bucks. Philadelphia is just as good as the Bucks are on paper, and you can get them for a better price (Milwaukee is +150 to win the East). That makes the 76ers the best value on the board.
The Bet: At +220, this is a one you should jump on.
76ers NBA Title Odds
The Line: +900 with 888sport
They aren’t the favorites, but playing in the East gives the 76ers an easier path to the Finals. And if they can get there, they have an elite defense and enough scoring to get the job done. Embiid’s health is the X-factor, but if Horford and Richardson integrate well to Brett Brown’s system, they’re legitimate contenders.
The Bet: Their +900 odds are our favorite value on the board.
Best 76ers Player Prop Bets
A center has won Defensive Player of the Year 11 of the last 15 seasons. Embiid had a real case last year (he finished second to Rudy Gobert), but the 76ers defense could wind up being the NBA’s best. That will go a long way toward Embiid’s candidacy.
The Bet: He’s excellent value at those odds and a terrific bet.
