The Philadelphia 76ers have made some big changes.
Out is head coach Brett Brown; in is new head coach Doc Rivers. General manager Elton Brand agreed to a contract extension, but his role and responsibilities will change with former Rockets GM Daryl Morey now the new president of basketball operations.
The Sixers have also remade their lineup surrounding Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons with Al Horford and Josh Richardson out and Seth Curry, Terrance Ferguson, Dwight Howard, and Danny Green in.

At 7′ tall and 280 pounds, Joel Embiid has the speed, strength, and skill to be NBA MVP. Injuries have kept his name out of that conversation thus far. But career averages of 23.9 points and 11.5 rebounds per game suggest he’s just one healthy, consistent, and winning season away from winning it. Check below for current live odds on Embiid to win NBA MVP or hit certain game milestones.
It’s easy to bet on 76ers games with PA online sportsbooks. There are just a couple of things you need to do first.
It all starts with clicking through one of our exclusive links to the website for the PA online sportsbook of your choice. Once there, you can sign up for an account directly, or download the sportsbook app to your phone or tablet and sign up for an account through the app.
You will be required to provide a bit of personal information during the signup process. However, that won’t amount to much more than your name, address, phone number, email, and the last four digits of your Social Security number.
During the signup process, you may be asked for a promo or bonus code. You can find that right here on this page. Entering it during signup will make sure you get the best new player free-bet or bonus offer available.
After you’ve completed the signup process you’ll want to deposit funds to bet with. Most PA online sportsbooks have a variety of different deposit methods, including everything from debit and credit cards to online banking, payment processors, and cash at affiliated casinos and retail outlets.
Finally, betting on 76ers games is about browsing through the available 76ers betting markets and clicking on a bet you like. A bet slip will be instantly created. You can add more bets to the slip and even turn your bets into a parlay.
Either way, you simply enter the amount you want to bet for each bet and the potential payout will be displayed on the slip. If it all looks good to you, just click the tab at the bottom of the slip to place the bets.
PA online sportsbooks offer live betting on 76ers games. That means you can bet on 76ers games after tip-off at odds that change with the action on the court.
The same sports betting markets that are available before the game are available live, but there’s more. Live betting opens up even more betting markets, including quarter-by-quarter, half-by-half, and additional prop markets that could have you betting on things like which 76er will score the next basket.
The odds can change fast, which makes live betting best suited for mobile sports betting apps that allow you to get down a bet just as quickly.
Some dates are still to be finalized, but the NBA has released the format for its 2020-21 regular-season schedule. It dictates that the 76ers play each Eastern Conference team three times and each Western Conference team twice.
The Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets will play in Philadelphia twice, but the New York Knicks and Toronto Raptors will only play in Philadelphia once each. That means the Sixers will visit the Celtics and Nets once each and the Knicks and Raptors twice each.
The Southeast Division, including Atlanta, Charlotte, Miami, Orlando, and Washington, will each visit Philadelphia twice. All other Eastern Conference teams will come to Philadelphia only once. That means the Sixers will travel to play at each Southeast Division team only once and all other Eastern Conference teams twice.
The plan is to play the 2020-21 NBA season in NBA cities, not a bubble, which will mean travel and possibly fans returning to NBA games before long. In the meantime, we do know that the traditional 82-game regular season will be traded in for a condensed 72-game schedule, and it started Dec. 22, 2020.
The regular season will conclude in mid-May 2021 and be followed up by a play-in tournament for the 7-10 seeds in each conference. That will lead to a traditional 16-team NBA Playoffs beginning in late May and finishing up with the 2021 NBA Finals in the first half of July 2021.
More details regarding the 76ers schedule will be posted here when available.
The 2019–20 Philadelphia 76ers finished the season with a 43–30 record. The Sixers were one of the 22 teams invited to the bubble and made the playoffs as the No. 6 seed in the Eastern Conference.
However, they were swept out of the first round by the Boston Celtics. Head coach Brett Brown was subsequently fired after seven seasons at the helm.
Joel Embiid led the team in scoring and rebounding, averaging 23 points and 11.6 rebounds per game during the regular season. Ben Simmons led the 76ers averaging eight assists per game. Simmons was third on the team in scoring, averaging 16.4 points per game behind Embiid and Tobias Harris, who averaged 19.6 points per game.
Injuries shortened both Embiid’s and Simmons’ seasons. Simmons did not play in the playoffs due to injury. The debate as to whether Embiid and Simmons can coexist and win together continued.
A typical 76ers game line might look something like this:
The first number you see is the spread. The second, in parenthesis, is the odds on spread bets. As you can see, the 76ers are 3.5-point favorites over the Knicks. That means the Sixers have to win by four or more points for spread bets on the Sixers to pay.
The Knicks have to win outright or lose by three points or less for spread bets on the Knicks to pay. Either way, with these odds, you will win $100, plus your bet back, for every $110 you bet.
Next is the moneyline. As you can see, the Knicks are +155 underdogs and the 76ers are -175 favorites. That means you’ll win $155, plus your bet back, for every $100 you bet on the Knicks if the Knicks win the game. It also means you’ll win $100, plus your bet back, for every $175 you bet on the Sixers if the Sixers win.
Finally, you see the totals line, with the odds posted in brackets. Here, you’re betting that the total combined score will be either over, or under, 203.5 points. You’ll win $100, plus your bet back, for every $110 you bet, if you are right.
Most of the time, 76ers game odds will open the same at PA sportsbooks as they do inside Las Vegas sportsbooks. But they might be a whole lot different come tip-off. Both set the lines trying to draw an equal amount of betting to each side. If more money is bet on one side at a particular sportsbook, they’ll move that line trying to even things out again.
Because they are a local team, PA online sportsbooks will probably see more money bet on 76ers games than Las Vegas sportsbooks do. That makes PA sportsbooks more likely to change the lines on 76ers games than Las Vegas sportsbooks are. That’s why lines on 76ers games that open the same might end up different come tip-off.

Here’s a look at the Philadelphia 76ers 2020-21 coaching staff:
Here’s a look at the Philadelphia 76ers head coaches over the past 15 years:
Comcast’s NBC Sports Philadelphia owns the 76ers TV broadcast rights until 2029. The Beasley Broadcast Group (97.3 ESPN) have the radio rights until 2023.
The TV broadcast team includes Marc Zumoff, Alaa Abdelnaby, and Serena Winters.
Next season will mark Tom McGinnis‘ 26th as the 76ers’ radio play-by-play person.
Wells Fargo Arena is the best place to watch the 76ers play. If you can’t make it there, however, one of these well-known Philly sports bars should do the trick:
The Philadelphia 76ers were founded in 1946 as the Syracuse Nationals.
They are one of the NBA’s oldest franchises and boast a plethora of Hall of Fame players including Wilt Chamberlain, ‘Dr. J’ Julius Erving, Moses Malone, Charles Barkley, and Allen Iverson.
Playing as the 76ers, the team has won two NBA Championships, led by Chamberlain in 1967, and by Erving and Malone in 1983. In 2001, Iverson led the team to another NBA Finals appearance, but they lost to the Los Angeles Lakers. Chamberlain was a Philly high school legend. He joined the Sixers in 1964 and led the team to its first title in Philadelphia two years later.
Billy Cunningham was also on that team and he went on to coach the Sixers to their second title in Philadelphia in 1983, after years of finishing just shy of winning it all.
Barkley led the team throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s, but his career was overshadowed by superstars Larry Bird in Boston, Magic Johnson in Los Angeles, and Michael Jordan in Chicago.
The 76ers returned to the top of the Eastern Conference behind the play of superstar Allen Iverson in the 2000s, but he could not lead them to a third title.
Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment owns and operates the Philadelphia 76ers. Josh Harris and David Blitzer founded the company in 2017 to consolidate holdings that included the 76ers. The pair bought the team in 2011 from Comcast-Spectacor for a reported $280 million.
76ers tickets can be bought for as little as $14. However, the average ticket price is $108 and courtside seats go for around $1,000 each.
The 76ers retired Dolph Schayes’ No. 4 jersey in 2016, marking the ninth retired jersey number in franchise history.
The others are:
According to Forbes, the 76ers are worth approximately $2 billion. That makes them 11th in the 30 teams in the NBA and worth quite a bit less than the No. 1 NY Knicks, who are valued at $4.6 billion.
The Philadelphia 76ers official Twitter account is @sixers. The account claims to provide the official #content of the 76ers. The Sixers joined Twitter in September 2008 and have some 1.9 million followers.
The 76ers unveiled a 2020-21 City Edition uniform on Nov. 10, 2020. The uniform showcases Boathouse Row, a Historic National Landmark running along the Schuylkill Riverwest of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
The Jerseys are primarily black and display a view of a lit-up Boathouse Row at night. The text “Philadelphia” is also printed in white, with a blue drop shadow, across the front. The uniform’s waistband features the historic Liberty Bell with a severed snake, paying homage to Benjamin Franklin’s political cartoon of 1754, hidden underneath.
You can buy the jerseys online at store.nba.com.
