SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: C

[NOTE: Early in the season, we include last season in the analysis] At 9-7 the 76ers are behind their money line projected win total of 9.4 wins. They have 3 bad losses (they were favored or got blown out as slight underdogs) vs 2 good wins (upset wins, or blowout victory in what was expected to be a close game). They have exceeded expectations in home games. Their 7-0 home record is +23% better than their expected win percentage. Their record over the last 3 weeks and win% (7-5, 58%) is pretty much what was expected of them and mirrors their season overall. We have simulated the 76ers playing every other team on a neutral court (with players who would be available in the playoffs) and they won an impressive 62.6% of the time (#3 in the league). They have moved up from #7 in the league back on 11/10.

NEXT 6 GAME OUTLOOK: PARTLY SUNNY

The forecast for their next 6 games is generally good. They have 7 likely wins where they are winning >62% of the simulations which translates to being at least a -5 point favorite, and just 2 games where they are a clear underdog. The most likely scenario over the next 6 games is a record of 4-2 (35% chance). Their chances of winning their next 6 are 9%. At #5 in the conference, they are fighting with the Pacers for positioning. With a +1.29 advantage in projected wins over their next 6 games they have a good chance of improving their conference seed. They are ahead of the Pistons by half a game. With a +2.04 advantage in projected wins over their next 6 games they have a good chance of widening the gap.
