Betting on any NBA team can be both intriguing and perplexing, and it’s no different for the Philadelphia 76ers.

With a roster composed of both star players and unknowns, and early-season struggles having since turned into success, it can be tough to nail down not only what this team is but also how to bet on it.

Just as Philadelphia is figuring it all out on the court at the right time, though, so can you with your bet slip.

Here’s how to make the most of betting on the 76ers.

Bet on Embiid

Joel Embiid isn’t just a weapon for the 76ers; he creates success for bettors, too.

The 7-foot post is having a sensational season. He tallied 50 points and grabbed 12 rebounds recently in a game against the Orlando Magic, again proving his dominance as both a scorer and board-cleaner.

Embiid has been a key part of Philadelphia’s rebuilding process since the franchise drafted him with the third overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. The team took a chance on him as the cornerstone of its roster, and he’s made it worth their while.

Just as the 76ers’ bet on Embiid seems to have paid off, yours can, too.

Whether they’re placing a prop bet on Embiid fielding a strong performance or simply wagering on the 76ers winning a given game, bettors are being treated very well by the dominant center. As long as Embiid continues playing well, the trend will stay that way, too.

Success in sports can be fleeting, so if you haven’t yet put money down on Embiid exploiting opponents, the clock is ticking. Whether you’re a fan betting from miles away or a local using online casinos in Philadelphia, make your picks now while the Cameroon native keeps rattling off success.

Take the Over

With Embiid manning the post and playmakers like Seth Curry and Tyrese Maxey also on the floor, it’s not a stretch to expect Philadelphia to rack up points.

As of Jan. 21, Philadelphia had scored at least 100 points in 13 straight games. Though NBA teams often score above the century mark, it’s impressive for a squad to do so in that many consecutive outings.

The 76ers simply rack up 100-point games, and with many of their opponents able to do the same, taking the over on most games involving Philadelphia seems like a no-brainer. The team is right in the thick of a competitive Eastern Conference, so more often than not, in-conference games for the 76ers are likely to be high-scoring and competitive.

While coaching staffs and front offices often meddle too much with a roster, messing up a good thing in the process, that doesn’t seem to be a problem with the 76ers. Embiid said recently “there’s really no urgency to change anything” for the team, according to ESPN, which is a promising sign for both fans of the franchise and those placing bets on it.

So the next time you have the opportunity to take the over for a matchup involving Philadelphia, do so. If your pick comes back a winner, you can thank the 76ers’ thriving offense. 

Side with the Wins

It’s been an off-and-on season so far for the 76ers, but they seem to be gelling as the campaign moves along, and more team chemistry equals more wins.

Embiid is playing as well as he ever has, Seth Curry provides a veteran presence and the team is finally finding its footing. Not all rosters boast the same inside-outside productivity as the 76ers, but when one has it, wins come quickly and often.

There’s reason to believe the team is only going to get better, too. Coach Doc Rivers reportedly wants to add playmaking to the roster via trade, and with guard/forward Ben Simmons still unavailable, Philadelphia could bring in help for both the backcourt and frontcourt.

Anything can happen in basketball, but with the way the 76ers are trending, it would be smart to side with them coming out with a win more often than not. If you’ve got a chance to wager on Philadelphia winning, whether in individual games or down the stretch, your wallet may just end up better for it.

After all, the 76ers have proved the doubters wrong thus far.
It’s time for you to do the same and make some money while you’re at it.
