Detroit Pistons vs. Washington Wizards: Betting Odds
The Pistons have not been the successful 90s teams they used to be for quite a while now. Over the past few years, they have failed to make it to the playoffs and have performed poorly.
They finished 14th in the Eastern Conference last season with a disappointing overall record of 23-59. They are a team far from qualifying for the playoffs, and their start to the new season hasn't been good either.
The Washington Wizards are still better compared to Detroit. They have tasted the post-season games and have been in the race with other teams. They finished 12th last season with an overall record of 35-47.
The team started the new season on a positive note, defeating the Indiana Pacers and the Washington Wizards. However, they lost their latest game to the Cleveland Cavaliers. This team definitely looks better than last season, and the fans have big hopes for them.
