Best Philadelphia Sixers Predictions
Philadelphia Sixers are one of the few teams that you can base your predictions on the fact that they are capable of replicating their championship winnings.
They also have some players on their roster who can be bet on for in-game performance.
And if you are scared of betting on such predictions, there are other Philadelphia Sixers betting you can still take advantage.
However, it is always advisable to place your bets early to get enough spread points to your favor and thus win more. The fluctuation of the closing line is inevitable.
ATS: Popularly known as “betting against the spread”. You can make your predictions based on the lines by the sportsbook.
If your team at the end of the day still wins or loses (depending on your picks) after deducting the spread (lines), you WIN.
Overunder: You can bet based on the total points that will be accumulated by the Sixers and their opponent.
You win the Over betting if the total points exceed the Sportsbook predictions. The Under will be won if it is below – just as you predicted.
First Half Bet: You do not always have to wait till the end of the game before counting your winnings.
It is possible to place a half time Philadelphia Sixers betting.
History of the Philadelphia Sixers
The Philadelphia 76ers formerly known as the Syracuse Nationals was founded in 1946. They are one of the oldest surviving NBA franchise.
The team has featured notable NBA players such as Allen Iverson who won the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the All-Star Game in 2001.
The Sixers qualified for the NBA finals the same year but failed to clinch the trophy due to their loss to the Chicago Bulls in the regular-season finale.
The Sixers reached their all-time franchise 16-game winning streak in the 2017-18 season. The season is unarguably their best performing season so far.
Overall, Philadephia Sixers have won three NBA Championships ― 1955, 1967, 1983.
The 1955 title was won while they were still known as the Nationals. They have also won five division titles ― 1977, 1978, 1983, 1990, 2001.
Apart from Iverson, other notable players produced by the Sixers are Wilt Chamberlain, Hal Greer, Billy Cunningham, Julius Erving, Andrew Toney, Charles Barkley, and Moses Malone.
Prior to winning their third NBA Championship in the 1982-83 season, Malone was interviewed on how the season would look like.
And he replied “four, four, four” which was misinterpreted by reporters to mean “fo’, fo’, fo’” due to his accent.
This was assumed to mean the Sixers will win all their three rounds and then claim the title.
They, however, ended up winning the title with “four, five, four”, after losing to the Bucks in game four of the Eastern finals.
This was one of the fewest loss losses in NBA league history.
