Last season didn’t end the way the Philadelphia 76ers wanted it to. Joel Embiid broke his face, James Harden had a meltdown and the 76ers lost in the second round. However, they’ve retooled and now have high hopes for this season.

Philadelphia has had a full offseason to gel and mesh together. After last season’s disappointment, will the Sixers have enough to get over the hump?

Philadelphia 76ers Best Bet for 2022-23 NBA Season

The 76ers are going to be one of the most interesting teams in the league this season. They have an MVP candidate on their team, a rising star in Tyrese Maxey and then whatever version of James Harden we’re going to get this year. 

They have the potential to be the best team in the East, or just a No. 4 /No. 5 seed. However, even at the No. 4 seed, the 76ers could be near the top of the East. Last season, they finished in fourth due to tie-breakers. Yet, they had the same record as the Boston Celtics.

That same thing could happen this season, which is why the best bet for the 76ers is to win the Atlantic Division. They are third behind the Celtics – who have a coaching scandal – and the Brooklyn Nets – who are the messiest team in the league. 

If the 76ers can stay healthy, this is the best value on the board for them.
