Weedy Washington: since their dynasty years in the seventies, the franchise has struggled and hasn’t won more than 46 games as of 2016. They haven’t made it past the second round and sandwiched between brief playoff stints are long periods of losing seasons including over a dozen seasons where the franchise won under 30 games. A return to the NBA playoffs is likely for the current incarnation but the fans won’t be expecting much as they continue to await a true contender.
Division champions, finally? the Wizards hold the NBA’s longest division title drought at 37 seasons as of 2016. Their history of mediocrity and being part of the Southeast Division, which also had the powerhouse Florida teams are both to blame for this phenomenon. But with how wide open the division can be especially in recent years, throwing a small prop bet on the Wizards to finally win the title may be a profitable investment.
High scoring expectations: the Wizards have one of the best offensive backcourts and plenty of young talent and scoring punch but be weary in playing the team totals or over/unders. This type of bet lets you predict if the total score between the Wizards and their opponent goes over or under the projected score. Between 2013 to 2016, the Wizards and their opponent have only hit the over 47 percent of the time but have more success at home with a 54.5 percent rate.
