Washington vs Detroit Bets remains and is not for the faint of heart. Now, the dilemmas here seem insane. Both teams have won a combined total of four games. That’s correct. Detroit and Washington come in with identical 2-14 records. Yes, their numbers are hideous. Worse, these are the two worst teams in the entire NBA. Yet. the data suggests they may be marginally better than their records. No one is saying .500, but a little better.
Also, while Washington averages more than 115 points a game, the Wizards yield a whopping 125.1 per contest. The Wizards -9.6 differential is the second worst in the league. This is a team that has lost nine straight games and feels like they have not come close.
Alright, if one thinks that Washington is bad then meet the Detroit Pistons. Detroit holds the longest losing streak of the season at 13 games. Yes, this is also current. Now, the first thing anyone with half a brain has to be thinking here, why would one even think about betting this? Simply, the answer is why the heck not. Even bad teams need a little love too.
Bettors expect insanity and here at Vegas Sports Betting, let us give more of that to you. If one is even thinking of taking a safe wager here, flip a coin on the Moneyline.
Can these two teams score 235 points or more on Monday? Washington vs Detroit bets look forward to see how many points the two teams can pile up. Now, remember Detroit can easily give up 120 points as readily as Washington does. Sure, the Wizards execute this on another level. However, Detroit just allowed 136 with ease in Indiana over the weekend. Do not look up the video. It ranked as extremely ugly.
So, if one is wondering, guess who also gave up 136 points over the weekend? That’s correct. The Washington Wizards lost by 28 points in Atlanta. Unfortunately for the Wizards, the Hawks kept scoring. This game, by the way, was in Washington. Talk about as low as things can get as Atlanta outscored the Wizards by 17 points to start the second half. Yes, Atlanta’s lead swelled to over 30 at times in the third quarter.
Thankfully, the good news is neither team is exactly good defensively. Honestly, that is being kind. Washington is more disastrous but Detroit is now not far behind. Someone has to win this game. Let that sink in. Why not consider the adage that both teams are going to keep trying to score and score and score.
So, that -110 number on the 234.5 point Over rolls in as a reasonable wager. One considered some alternative numbers that were higher. However, let us not push our luck to start the week. Washington vs Detroit Bets rings in as one of those games where the ugliness could ratchet up to an 11. Thankfully, this does not happen too often. Imagine if this was a home-and-home. Take the over and run quickly!
Washington vs Detroit bets go further over on us. Naturally, these numbers keep pulling us toward exploring even more choices. Some of these are again worth the tiniest of wagers. Do not bet a ridiculous amount of money here. Simply, be smart and not stupid. These teams love giving up points. If one believes Detroit is going to win, a bettor can parlay that with maybe their team over.
Books tried to gauge early a number for Detroit. Even the Over at 120.5 tilts to 115 and only goes up from there. What about Washington’s average of 125+ points allowed per contest. The current number at Over 124.5 plows through at a whopping +210. That boggles the mind even for the most experienced of bettors. Two teams with 9+ game losing streaks has happened before. However, it feels like both teams are simultaneously at rock bottom.
Yes, the numbers between the two worst teams in the league are unexpectedly similar during their streaks. Overall, however, Detroit is marginally better. Also, they are playing at home. How far does one go here? Everyone knows Washington can put up some points here, but how many will the Pistons get? It becomes our question of the night and maybe week.
The data trends more and more toward Detroit here. Laying points is easy but how high will that team total go? Alright, let’s bite as this worked last week. No one is saying the Pistons will pile up 130+ points here. However, something close to 125 is reasonable. Again, this game could even go to overtime. That would only add to the pain and the points.
