Originally established as the Syracuse Nationals in 1946, the franchised moved to Philadelphia in 1963 to become the 76ers or “Sixers”. They have a rich history of winning having won three NBA titles in nine NBA Finals appearances and have five division titles as well. Their last NBA Finals came in 2001 and they have since been an uninspiring franchise and in most recent years have become the model of futility in major pro sports leagues. The Sixers won’t win too many games but sly gamblers may profit huge when they do.

Bet On Philadelphia Sixers Games
There are many ways to bet on Sixers games. The money line is the American system that translates betting odds to either a minus or plus number to indicate the favorite or underdog, respectively. A favorite at -350 means a bet of $350 is needed to profit $100. An underdog at +280 means $280 is profited on a $100 bet. Alternatively, you can take your wager and divide it by the minus number or multiply it by the plus number to see your potential profit.
Trust in the process: starting in the 2013-2014 season, the Sixers underwent a huge shakeup that resulted in them becoming one of the NBA’s worst teams. During the 2015-2016 season, they were one loss away (72) from tying the franchise’s worst record from over 43 years ago. But because of their bottom two finishes in the NBA, they have amassed on prime young talent who could eventually revive this much-maligned franchise.
Big men, big dreams: since becoming the Sixers in 1963, the franchise won two NBA championships on six NBA Finals appearances and most of these teams had a few things in common: all-star lineups and dominant big men. The Sixers of the sixties had Wilt Chamberlain, the eighties had Moses Malone and the 2000s team had Dikembe Mutombo. Now the Sixers have stockpiled on promising big men in hopes they could eventually return to contender status.
Sixers going under: betting the Sixers straight is a tough sell for how atrocious they have been but betting the over/under or team totals is one way to bank on their ineptitude. Here, you bet if you think the total score between the Sixers and their opponent goes over or under the given number i.e. 196.5. The game result is irrelevant. Since 2013, Sixers’ games have gone under 51.2 percent of the time. That number shoots up to 58.6 percent in games against the Western Conference.
