Says Sports Illustrated:
2017-18 Record: 52-30 2018 Win Total: 54.0
The ongoing process in Philly jumped a year ahead of schedule during the 2017-18 campaign, as a still-green Sixers squad rode a 17-game win streak to the No. 3 seed in the East. The ceiling is remarkably high for this group, as it still has plenty of room to grow if Ben Simmons can develop his jump shot, Markelle Fultz can develop a jump shot and Joel Embiid can curb his turnovers. There’s little reason to argue that they can’t top 50 wins once again, but 54 feels lofty for a team still finding its footing.
Bet: Under 54.0
