Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid (21) dunks against Toronto Raptors forward Serge Ibaka (9) during the second half of Game 7 of the second round of the 2019 NBA Playoffs at Scotiabank Arena. What helps an athlete leap tall distances in a single bound?

We're back with another episode of "The New Slant" podcast, and this week we're tackling everyone's favorite preseason pastime, diving into over/unders in advance of the Sixers' season opener on Wednesday. 

Shamus and I should have another short episode late Wednesday night/early Thursday morning following the team's opening game against the Boston Celtics, but for now, a look at the big picture will have to suffice. And lord knows you need to think less about a bad Eagles team on this Monday morning.

A brief rundown of the show:

  1. Wrapping up the preseason, with a few thoughts on the backup guard battle, Josh Richardson, and potential rotation wrinkles
  2. Over/unders for the season, including games played for Joel Embiid, steals/blocks for Matisse Thybulle, Ben Simmons made threes, and Sixers wins this season
  3. "Official" win predictions
