  • Philadelphia holds top six odds to win the NBA title with Pennsylvania sportsbooks
  • 76ers hold +1200 odds to win NBA Championship at DraftKings
  • 76ers Center Joel Embiid holds +600 odds to win NBA MVP at FanDuel

After winning 39 of their first 60 games, the 76ers hold some of the best odds to win the NBA Championship according to PA online sport betting outlets.

Powered by the dynamic duo of guard James Hardin and center Joel Embiid, the 76ers carry +1300 odds to win the crown according to FanDuel. The bookmaker also sets Philadelphia with the third best odds to win the Eastern Conference with +650 odds.

Over at DraftKings, the 76ers hold +1200 odds to win the NBA crown, while the bookmaker has set Philadelphia at +500 to take the Eastern Conference.

Since the 76ers share a division with the Eastern Conference-leading Boston Celtics, Philadelphia holds +1600 odds to win the Atlantic.

Philadelphia Center Joel Embiid Ranked Second in NBA MVP Odds

At DraftKings, Embiid carries +400 odds to win the NBA title. Currently, Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic holds -350 odds at DraftKings to win his third straight MVP crown.

In comparison, FanDuel provides better payout odds for Embiid bettors with +600 odds for the 76ers center to win the NBA MVP. Jokic’s -310 DraftKings odds offer better value than FanDuel, making it another source of value for Pennsylvania bettors.

Embiid also garners attention from bookmakers when it comes to NBA Defensive Player of the Year. At FanDuel, the 76ers center holds +8000 odds to win the DPOY, while over at DraftKings, he carries +7000 odds.

Philadelphia Guard Tyrese Maxey Contender for NBA Sixth Man Award

Averaging close to 20 points per game this season, 76ers point guard Tyrese Maxey holds top three odds at both top PA online sports betting outlets, DraftKings and FanDuel, to win the coveted Sixth Man of the Year award.

At DK, Maxey carries +425 odds to win the award. Pennsylvania bettors can win $425 for every $100 they wager if Maxey wins the trophy. Over at FD, Maxey holds +700 odds, offering much bigger value for bettors who believe Maxey could win the 6th Man award.

In other categories, Doc Rivers, the 76ers head coach, remains a longshot to win NBA Coach of the Year. Rivers holds +1500 odds at DraftKings to win the top award for NBA coaches.
