NBA Betting Online: Our NBA futures odds are always posted at Bookmaker Sportsbook, and today, we're taking a look at the Philadelphia 76ers and how they will fare against the rest of the league. Check out whether we think they will live up to their expectations in the 2012-13 season!
The 30 squads in the NBA are set to take each other on over the course of the next several months. We're breaking down the offseason for the Philadelphia 76ers right now, to see how they will fare against the expectations of the oddsmakers and the rest of the NBA odds this coming season.
To beat the NBA betting odds in this league, you seem to need to have at least a competitive big man. And, most of the teams that have success have elite bigs. The 76ers haven't had one of those players in quite some time, but now, they have C Andrew Bynum, the big piece of the puzzle that was acquired in the deal that was otherwise known as the Dwight Howard trade.
Of course, to get Bynum, the team had to make some major concessions. The first problem was the loss of G Andre Iguodala, the man that was the best player that the franchise had since Allen Iverson. The second problem might be a long-term hazard, but it might also be a short-term answer to the problem at shooting guard. G Jason Richardson was added from the Orlando Magic as well, and though he has a terrible contract, he can still shoot the ball from anywhere on the court.
This is a year where F Evan Turner really needs to take his game to the next level. He and G Jrue Holiday are going to be expected to be the real scorers for the club now that Iguodala is gone. Gone as well is G Lou Williams, who led the team in scoring.
Last year was an interesting one for the Sixers. Head Coach Doug Collins really had this team playing great 'D', and it really showed on the team 'totals'. The 76ers only played 30 'overs' last year, and the hope is that that really doesn't get any better. Philly was great at home last year, going 19-14 SU, and that's why the team was able to be a respectable ATS team at 33-32-1 ATS.
Philly only finished four games back of the Boston Celtics last year at the top of the Atlantic Division, and the argument could be made that it has a better team this year than it did a campaign ago. Still, depth is an issue, and there are questions as to where the scoring is going to come from. This is a team that you'll probably want to take on the NBA wagering odds quite a bit this year, but it is going to take a lot of fortitude to do so until Philadelphia proves that it can consistently put points on the board.
