Philadelphia 76ers Betting History

The Philadelphia 76ers were a poor betting proposition during the 2013/2014 NBA schedule considering they only beat the spread in 43.9 percent of their games. Despite recording their worst season since the 1995/96 season, as well as failing to beat the spread, The Philadelphia 76ers didn't score as many low-scoring games as the sportsbooks predicted. With a near-perfect tie in Over/Under betting, neither option was a safe bet.

2014/2015 Philadelphia 76ers Schedule

The Philadelphia 76ers home opener is against the four-time defending Eastern Conference Champion Miami Heat on Nov. 1, three days after they begin their 2014-15 season. The Sixers will again host the Heat in the regular season finale on Apr. 15. Over the course of the schedule, the Sixers will face each NBA team at least once at home and once on the road.

Philadelphia 76ers History

The franchise was established in 1946 and originally known as the Syracuse Nationals before moving to Philadelphia in 1963. The 76ers have achieved a great deal of success in their history and have qualified for the playoffs an amazing forty-seven times. The franchise won their first NBA Championship when they were still known as the Syracuse Nationals in 1955 beating the Fort Wayne Pistons in the NBA finals. The franchise qualified for the playoffs every season from 1950 to 1971 and won another NBA Championship in 1967 when Wilt Chamberlain led them to victory over the LA Lakers. The team had its first down period in the late 1960s and early 1970s but acquired Julius Erving who led them to another successful period including the 1983 NBA Championship. The 76ers struggled in the 1990s but became a force again in 2001 with Allen Iverson leading them to the NBA Finals. The 76ers have faltered lately, not qualifying for the playoffs since 2012. They will hopefully get back on track next season.

Thaddeus Young was drafted by the 76ers with the 12th overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft. Until general manager Ed Stefanski was hired, Young did not play very often.

Young finished the 2013-14 NBA season with career highs in points, steals, assists, 3 pointers made, and games started. He finished the season 3rd in the league in steals

Philadelphia 76ers Star From the Past: Julius Erving

Julius Erving joined the Philadelphia 76ers in 1976 after playing for the Virginia Squires and New York Nets in the ABA. Erving became the undisputed leader of the 76ers roster and led the franchise to one of their most successful period. The 76ers qualified for the playoffs every year that Erving was a member of the side and he led them to the 1983 NBA Championship that capped off his stellar career. Erving was an eleven time NBA All-Star and was voted the NBA MVP in 1981 to become the only player in history to be MVP of both the NBA and ABA. Erving is considered one of the best slam dunkers in basketball history and is often credited with making the Slam Dunk the most popular shot in basketball. Erving is a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame and was picked as a member of the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time team.

Philadelphia 76ers Head Coach: Brett Brown

Brett Brown began his NBA coaching career in 2013 with the 76ers, though he spent over 10 years as an assistant coach with the San Antonio Spurs and had extensive experience coaching in Australia, previously serving as the head coach of two NBL teams and Australia's mens national basketball team. Overall, Brown was a head coach for 278 NBL games, winning 54 percent of the time. Brown was wooed away from the Spurs with a 4-year guaranteed contract from the 76ers and came to the team during a total rebuilding mode.
