Philadelphia 76ers Win Total

The Case for the Over (53.5, DraftKings)

I’m of the position that the Sixers will finish with the best record in the NBA this season with upwards of 56 wins.

When they lost Jimmy Butler in free agency, the immediate reaction was that they got worse. But in adding Josh Richardson and Al Horford, the Sixers fixed an orbit around Joel Embiid.

Instead of trying to build a three-headed monster, this is a team built to make the most of Embiid. That’s a better formula for success than juggling egos.

Ben Simmons is actually the odd man out here. He and Embiid have never had great chemistry: their games don’t fit together naturally, and there’s been some awkward off-court moments as well. But Simmons showed so much more in the playoffs than I was expecting, and his ability to now process defenses better, combined with more playmakers to set him up on possessions, helps.
