Washington Wizards Betting
The Washington Wizards have been branded as an underachieving team after having two NBA All-Stars but still find themselves at the lower half of the NBA Eastern Conference standings. Their most recent match was with the Miami Heat and they were defeated by a wide margin of 27 points. It was a blowout to start the game with Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal opting to play only below 28 minutes to reserve their energy for the next game. This is going to be a tough season ahead of them and the team’s chemistry has been horrible. The bright side last game is seeing Alex Len still having a good game in him leading the team with 18 points.

The Charlotte Hornets are on back-to-back losses but it was a tough schedule facing the Philadelphia 76ers and the latest were the Utah Jazz.

LaMelo Ball has been the starting point guard for the team and he has been adjusting well.
