The Wizards are 8-17 to begin the year, but that didn’t stop one bettor from placing a $10,000 wager on Washington to win the NBA Championship with BetMGM. If a miraculous turnaround does happen and the team goes on to win an NBA title, the bet would payout $5 million.

While winnings of such significance would be a lovely financial cushion for anyone, betting $10,000 on a team that currently sits 14th in the Eastern Conference doesn’t seem like a great investment. That’s why the Wizards are amongst the New York Knicks, Chicago Bulls, Cleveland Cavaliers, Detroit Pistons and Oklahoma City Thunder as the longest shots to win an NBA Championship this season at +50,000 odds.
Not only is Washington struggling after dealing John Wall for Russell Westbrook before the season, but the organization is more likely to deal their best player — Bradley Beal — at the trade deadline than it is to bring in a difference maker for a playoff push. There is a slim chance that the Wizards make the playoffs, let alone win four postseason series and knock off the Los Angeles Lakers, Utah Jazz, Los Angeles Clippers or any other team that would come out of the Western Division in the NBA finals.
But for whatever reason, this person rolled into Vegas with a hunch. He/she feels good that the District of Columbia is going to bring home the Larry O’Brien Trophy and make him a multi-millionaire in the process.
If you want to tail this wild wager, now is the time. BetMGM is offering a RISK-FREE first bet up to $600 to all new customers. All you have to do is sign up for BetMGM using promo code ‘BROBIBLE’ and place a bet on any game, any team, anytime.
Look at it this way… Maybe this person is from the future, hopped in his/her time machine after the Wizards made a historic run and came back to present day to place the ticket. How silly would you feel if you didn’t get in on the action?
A $600 bet on Washington to win the NBA Championship would pay out $250,000 and change your life. If it doesn’t hit? Well, you get every dollar back in free bets without having to worry about the losing.
Seem like a no brainer.
