Washington Wizards Betting History
Only two NBA franchises that have won a championship in their current city have a longer title drought than the Wizards. Since winning the 1978 championship and losing in the 1979 NBA Finals, Washington hasn’t even been back to the conference finals. The Eastern Conference has been dominated by a handful of teams and superstar players in recent years. Five teams have represented the East in the last 13 NBA Finals, and only six franchises have won the conference over a 17-year stretch.
The Wizards were eliminated 4-1 in the first round of the 2021 playoffs, which was the team’s sole postseason appearance of the last four seasons. Washington went 35-47 last year for a fourth straight losing season. The team’s preseason over/under win total was 35.5 at Caesars. If Washington can get through the play-in tournament and earn a postseason berth, it would have to be considered a step in the right direction.
