Will the Philadelphia 76ers win the NBA championship this year?

Well, FanDuel Sportsbook has the odds of it happening at +750. That’s good enough for fourth-best on the board:

  • Los Angeles Clippers (+350)
  • Los Angeles Lakers (+440)
  • Milwaukee Bucks (+600)

That’s all well and good, but just in time for tonight’s start of the 2019-20 NBA season, FanDuel put together a special Sixers promo and odds boost.

The offer is only available to New Jersey and Pennsylvania customers who register for an account. And you have until Nov. 3 to take advantage of it.

The 76ers odds boost deal goes like this: Bet up to $10 on the 76ers to win the NBA championship at 76/1 odds.

Yes, that really is the betting line.

How the FanDuel 76ers odds boost works

The first step is to download the FanDuel sports betting app on an iOS or Android device for NJ or PA. Registration is available via a web browser, too.

The next step is to create an account. The promo code PROCESS is required to take advantage of the 76/1 odds boost for the Sixers.

Here are the other rules:

  • This 76/1 offer must be your first online wager at FanDuel.
  • There is one eligible wager per person.
  • There is a max $760 bonus.
  • Bonus will be paid as a non-withdrawable site credit that expires after seven days.

As long as you remember to use the promo code PROCESS when you sign up for a FanDuel account, you’ll be ready to place that $10 bet on the Sixers to win the NBA Finals.

Sixers, Knicks, and Nets betting lines at FanDuel

While existing account holders are not eligible for this offer, there are plenty of other NBA bets available.

And since we are talking about the Sixers, there are several other futures markets that will likely attract NJ sports betting interest.

Here are the odds to win the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference:

FanDuel Odds76ersCelticsNetsRaptorsKnicksBucks
Atlantic Division Winner-175+480+550+600 +20000--
Eastern Conference Winner+220+700+1200+1400 +16000+150

The Garden State also has plenty of New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets fans.

The Knicks are one of four teams considered the biggest long shot to win the East. The Washington Wizards, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Charlotte Hornets have the same odds.

As far as the NBA title odds go, the Nets are +2700 while the Knicks are a distant +25000.

FanDuel has NBA player props, too

FanDuel is offering several interesting player props.

If you’re looking for more 76ers action, take a look at the highest-rebounding average. All-Star center Joel Embiid has the second-best odds at +800.

Andre Drummond from the Detroit Pistons tops the list at -220. He is the defending rebound champion.

Knicks fans, however, may be interested in wagering on the Rookie of the Year market. R.J. Barrett, the third overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, is one of the favorites to win.

Plus, Zion Williamson, the top overall pick of the New Orleans Pelicans is currently sidelined with an injury.

With that being said, here are the current ROY odds at FanDuel Sportsbook:

  • Williamson +125
  • Ja Morant +260
  • Barrett +450
  • Tyler Hero +1400
  • Michael Porter Jr. +1600
  • Darius Garland or Coby White +2000

And what about the NBA MVP odds?

It appears bettors are heavily favoring the Sixers’ Ben Simmons to take home that prize.

Simmons sits at +4000 to take home the regular season MVP honors. That’s not exactly a long shot. But Giannis Antetokounmpo is the current favorite at +270.

Cheer for your 76ers all season long

The only problem with futures bets is customers have to wait several months for the potential payout.

Between now and then is the 82-game regular season plus the playoffs.

But a $10 bet on the Sixers to win the championship at +7600 isn’t something to pass up.

And if you love the 76ers, and plan to cheer for them all year long, then this FanDuel 76ers odds boost shouldn’t be ignored.
