Philadelphia 76ers in the Spotlight as NBA Basketball Betting Finally Resumes

Nobody knows exactly what has been going on with the Philadelphia 76ers this season, but it has worked. Not only are they first in a half-decent Atlantic Division, they have hung with the Eastern Conference’s best all year long. Now the success has started to translate over to the NBA basketball betting line.

Have the first few months of the season been a legitimate demonstration of what the Sixers bring to the table? Though they squeezed into the playoffs last spring, the success they have enjoyed over the course of the 2011-12 campaign is something new.

This Tuesday, as players flock back to work after the All-Star Break, the Sixers will travel to Michigan for a run-in with the unpredictable Detroit Pistons. With 30/1 betting odds of winning the NBA championship – compared to Detroit’s 500/1 mark – Philadelphia is the obvious favorite heading into the game, but that is what makes the matchup so intriguing.

Not only is Detroit hard to gauge – they have beaten Orlando once and Boston twice, yet continue to sit in the basement – but the jury is still out on Philadelphia as a contender.

Though their record has pushed them to the top of their division, NBA basketball odds makers and fans alike are reluctant to buy in to a club whose leading scorer averages just over 15 points per game.
