Restart fever has taken hold of the country and we've all gone crazy for the return of the NBA. Yesterday we covered which teams people are betting to win the NBA Championship but today we can reveal that it's the Philadelphia 76ers that bettors expect to win the Eastern Conference.

Despite the Raptors being the second most-backed team to win the Championship in the 24 hours before yesterday's opener, over the past 7 days it's the Sixers, outsiders at +700, who have been most backed to win the conference.

The thought of a fit Joel Embiid, apparently in the best shape of his career, and Ben Simmons seemingly learning how to shoot a three, has fans and bettors alike, excited.

Over the past week the Sixers make up for 57.9% of bets on the Eastern Conference winner. That's a huge slice to the action, especially when the next most popular are the Milwaukee Bucks, short priced -163 favorites, with 11% of the betting, and the +500 Toronto Raptors, with 10% of the betting.

The fourth most popular bet to win the Eastern Conference with Oddschecker bettors isn't the Celtics, or even the Heat. No, it would be the Washington Wizards, taking in 5.2% of bets. You can only assume that bettors were lured in by the huge +12500 price, and hopes that this bizarre season could see an equally wild twist.
