NBA Betting Props – Will the Sixers Finish with the Worst Record Ever?

Yeah! High-fives all around! It finally happened. The Philadelphia 76ers won a game (of basketball) last night, 85-77 over the Minnesota Timberwolves. The win upped the Sixers’ record to 1-17.

The game didn’t get off to a great start, with the teams attacking the wrong basket. But, once the teams were oriented, Michael Carter-Williams (pictured) led his squad to an eight point win, narrowly missing a triple-double (20 points, nine rebounds, and nine assists). In the process, Carter-Williams and the Sixers avoided the embarrassing feat of matching the worst start in NBA history (0-18 by the 2009-10 New Jersey Nets).

So what will the future hold for the, shall we say, “luke-warm” Sixers?

Will they set a new mark for the worst record over an entire 82-game season? (That dubious honor is currently held by, you guessed it, the Philadelphia 76ers, who went 9-73 in 1973.)

Will they record another 17-game losing streak at some point this season?

Or has their lone victory instilled them with an unwarranted self-confidence that will lead them on a 17-game winning streak?

We had our people crunch some numbers and come up with odds for all of the above.

76ers Props:

Odds the 76ers finish worse than 9-73: 12/1

Odds the 76ers lose 17 in a row again this season: 9/2

Odds the 76ers win 17 in a row at some point this season: 10000/1
