Washington Wizards Player Stats
After swinging a surprising trade for Russell Westbrook in the offseason, the Washington Wizard rode their talismanic point guard down the stretch and through the play-in tournament to their first playoff berth since the 2017-18 season. Now with an offseason full of plenty of questions about the future, fans will wait to see if the Wizards can match their 2021 season that saw them finish the regular season as the third-most profitable team to wager on in the NBA. 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.
Washington Wizards Point Spreads
Bettors who were riding the hot hand of Russell Westbrook throughout the season were rewarded for their loyalty: The Wizards had a top-five record in the league against-the-spread (ATS), netting bettors eight units over the course of 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.
Washington Wizards Moneylines
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.
Washington Wizards Over/Unders
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.
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.
Washington Wizards Props
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 Russell Westbrook will record a triple-double. Others are more specific, such as identifying the player that will score the first basket of the game.
For bettors will a longer-term view, futures provide an opportunity to wager on events far in the… future. These bets can be as simple as “will the Wizards make the playoffs?” They can also be as niche as “Will Russell Westbrook re-break the record for triple-doubles in a single season?” Make sure to check out our reviews of sportsbooks and always shop for the best bets with The Action Network app.
