Washington Wizards 2021-22 Season
Russell Westbrook’s trade to the Los Angeles Lakers in the offseason brought Kyle Kuzma and Kentavius Caldwell-Pope to the Wizards, while Kristaps Porzingis was acquired at the trade deadline, giving Washington a fresh-faced roster in a matter of months.
After starting the season as the hottest team in the league, the Wizards came back down to earth…too far down at that, barely hanging onto contention in the East and are currently 11th in the standings.
Fans and bettors of the Wizards should read on for up-to-the-date information on their against-the-spread (ATS) record, gambling trends to know, and more.
Ways to Bet on the Washington Wizards
The point spread isn’t the only way to bet on the Wizards to win: The moneyline is a bet made on who wins the game, regardless of the margin. In the 2020-21 season, the Wizards were the second-most profitable team straight-up, netting bettors 15.2 units. Let’s revisit that game against the Pistons to understand the moneyline:
- Detroit Pistons +165
- Washington Wizards -200
Just as with the point spread, the favorite is denoted by a minus sign (-). The odds used here are American odds, which should be read as math questions answered by the number $100. The favored Wizards are -200 favorites, meaning it would take a $200 bet to win $100. The underdog Pistons are +165, meaning a $100 bet would win $165.
The Wizards are 23-34-1 against-the-spread (ATS) to start the 2021-22 season, a surprising mark considering their hot start to the season.
Bettors should be comfortable understanding a point spread because it is one of the most frequently offered wagers in basketball. Conveniently, it is merely a wager made on the margin of victory in the game. An example below should help explain:
- Detroit Pistons (+4.5)
- Washington Wizards (-4.5)
In the above example, the Wizards are tagged as the favorite, hence the minus sign (-) next to their name. The Pistons are the underdogs by virtue of the plus sign (+). A bet in this game on the Wizards would be on them to win by five points or more; Washington would lose against-the-spread if it was to lose outright or win by four or fewer points.
Also known as a total bet, over/unders are another popular way to wager on the outcome of a game without having to correctly predict the winner. Instead, sportsbooks will post a number, known as the total, and customers can bet over or under that number. The number is the total number of points that both teams will combine to score.
The Wizards have a 29-28-1 record when going for the over through the 2021-22 All-Star break.
If the Pistons and Wizards have a total of 222 points, under bettors will win in a game that ends with 221 points or fewer; for the over to cash, there will need to be a total of 223 points or more. A push would result if there were exactly 222 points scored, and all wagers would be refunded.
Wizards Prop Bets
Bettors need not be limited to bet on the outcome of the game; prop bets cover a wide array of bets that aren’t necessarily tied to the final score. Many props are wager on specific stat lines, such as if Bradley Beal will make over 2.5 three-pointers, or betting that Kyle Kuzma will record a triple-double. Others are more specific, such as identifying the player that will score the first basket of the game.
Wizards Future Odds
Expectations are low right now in Washington, but bettors should still shop for the best line to get good odds on Wizards futures bets. Futures are bets that focus on long term outcomes, like the Wizards to make the playoffs, win the Southeast Division, win the Eastern Conference, win the NBA Finals , or even individual awards like Bradley Beal winning league MVP.
