PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Rebuilding is the kind word for it, tanking is the word most people use, but they’re both words that indicate one specific thing about this year’s Sixers: they’re going to lose, a lot.
The final odds for the NBA season from Bovada came out today, and it’s fair to say that the Sixers are a longshot to win just about everything.
The Sixers, along with the Phoenix Suns and the Sacramento Kings are 300/1 to shots to win this year’s NBA title. The longest shot goes the Charlotte Bobcats and Orlando Magic, both 500/1. Unsurprisingly, the Miami Heat are the favorites to win the NBA title at 2/1, followed by the Bulls at 11/2 and the Thunder at 17/2.
The Sixers are 150/1 to win the Eastern Conference, again trailed by the Bobcats and Magic at 250/1.
The Sixers are 100/1 to win the Atlantic Division, while the Brooklyn Nets are the favorites at 4/7.
The Sixers have the lowest over/under in the NBA at 16.5 games.
