76ers Championship Odds: Tracking 76ers Finals Odds Though the NBA Playoffs

The 76ers won their final eight games of the regular season finishing with a record of 47-35 and will participate in the Play-In Tournament as the 7th seed in the East. 

The team's success revolves around the health of reigning MVP Joel Embiid. Unfortunately for Philadelphia, Embiid has been out with a knee injury since late January.

The hope is that Embiid will be ready to play for the playoffs, but his effectiveness will be questionable.. If Embiid can return to his MVP level of play, the 76ers will be a real threat to win the NBA Finals. If not, however, they could struggle to make it out of the Play-In Tournament.

That leaves Pennsylvania sportsbooks at a crossroads on where to put the 76ers odds. Currently at +1900, the 76ers have the third shortest odds out of any Eastern Conference team, despite being the 7th seed.

It's only just over six months until those all-important NBA Playoffs, so these are the most important dates in the calendar if the Sixers want any chance of reaching those Finals -- not to mention the possibility of claiming their first Championship in more than 40 years.

  • ๐Ÿ“† May 3, 2023: Joel Embiid wins NBA MVP - the Cameroonian center headed off both Nikola Jokic and Giannis Antetokounmpo to take last season's top player award, underlining his importance to the 76ers.
  • ๐Ÿ“† May 14, 2023: 76ers lose to Boston Celtics in Playoffs - They took it to Game 7, but after the Sixers lost to their sworn enemies the Boston Celtics in May, the start of their rebuilding project for the postseason began in earnest. A lot has already changed since then, but fans will still be thinking of that defeat when they next face the Celtics in February.
  • ๐Ÿ“† June 1, 2023: Nick Nurse joins as new head coach - the man who led the Toronto Raptors to their first Championship in 2019 joined the 76ers in the summer to replace former coach Doc Rivers. Can he bring home the Sixers' first Championship ring in four decades?
  • ๐Ÿ“† October 29, 2023: Nurse gets first win - Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey each scored 34 points to give new coach Nick Nurse his first win, with the 76ers winning 114-107 against Nurse's former team the Raptors. It was a compelling statement of intent, but it really underlined the importance of Embiid and Maxey to this team.
  • ๐Ÿ“† November 1, 2023: James Harden agrees deal to join the Los Angeles Clippers - The NBA's all-time top-scoring left-hander -- and last season's NBA MVP -- will of course be sorely missed, as will PJ Tucker and Filip Petruลกev, who left the Sixers for the Clippers at the same time. Without Harden, the 76ers' odds to win the NBA are significantly longer. Can Joel Embiid fill those considerable shoes?
  • ๐Ÿ“† December 25, 2023: 76ers take on the Miami Heat - Scheduled for 8pm on Christmas Day at the Kaseya Center, this game is sure to bring some festive entertainment to the busy Holiday schedule. This isn't a vintage Heat team, but they will provide a stern test if the Sixers are to mount a serious challenge this year.
  • ๐Ÿ“† December 30, 2023: 76ers take on the Chicago Bulls - The Bulls are always tricky customers for the Sixers, so this game at 8pm on the penultimate day of the year is a must-watch. 76ers fans will be hoping for a late Christmas present to see them into the New Year.
  • ๐Ÿ“† January 16, 2024: 76ers take on the Denver Nuggets - The current NBA Champs come to the Wells Fargo Center in January. Unsurprisingly, the Nuggets are also this season's favourites to win the Championship. There will be few greater tests for the Sixers this year.
  • ๐Ÿ“† February 27, 2024: 76ers against Boston Celtics - The Sixers don't have a great record against the Celtics of late, and they will play their biggest rivals again in February. This is a crunch game between sworn enemies, so do not miss it.
  • ๐Ÿ“† June 6, 2024: NBA Finals - The NBA Playoffs are scheduled to start in June, and if all goes to plan, the 76ers will be there.

Key Contributors on the 76ers Roster

Since the departure of James Harden, there's little doubt who the Sixers' most important players are this season: Cameroonian center Joel Embiid and American point guard Tyrese Maxey. Embiid and Maxey emphasized their supreme importance to the Sixers by scoring 34 points each against the Raptors in Nick Nurse's first win as Philly's new coach.

Perhaps less obvious is the importance of unsung heroes like the versatile Paul Reed, utility forward Tobias Harris, and Embiid's understudy Mo Bamba, each of whom could be crucial as the season progresses.
