That means Vegas expects Fultz to have a season where he averages something like 10 points, 4 assists, and makes 45 three's. Nothing special. 

I think the expectations among Sixers fans for Fultz in season two are a little bit high, maybe a lot bit high. Many Sixers fans expect Fultz to return to form and take the league by storm, showing why he should have been the No. 1 overall pick. Eventually, Fultz may do that, but let's not pretend he's all of the sudden back to being the three-level comfortable scorer he was at Washington. 

Fultz has a long way to go, as we saw in preseason. He's still reluctant to shoot and certainly doesn't look like some kind of an elite shooter. Don't go betting the over on all of these props.
