You didn’t make any money if you took the Washington Wizards vs. the Internet betting odds this past season.
You may not make any next season either in online betting but at least next season the Wizards will be easy on the eyes. Washington will be going with new uniforms next season that are far better than the eyesore they have had in recent years.
Red, White and Blue
The Wizards are going back to a more traditional style of jersey next season that will feature appropriate colors for a team in Washington as they will wear red, white and blue. The jersey will have horizontal stripes and there will be no stupid logo of a magician on the jersey. The Wizards uniform will look more like the old Washington Bullets uniform. If the team could change their name back to the Bullets they would be it is such a legal mess that it may not happen. The Wizards have played with a rotten teal color since 1997 and gone with the nickname of Wizards.
Leonsis Makes the Change
The changing of the colors was done by owner Ted Leonsis who took over the team after Abe Pollin died in 2009. Many fans and former players told Leonsis that the team needed to change the uniforms and go back to the red, white and blue. It was an easy sell to Leonsis who changed the Washington Capitals back to those colors with great fan approval. The changing of the colors definitely helped the Capitals and Leonsis is hoping that it is a positive influence on the Wizards. It took Leonsis about a year to get the colors changed. It might take up to three years to get the name changed.
Wizards 32-50 ATS
It was ugly last year if you bet on the Washington Wizards. They were 32-50 against the NBA Internet betting odds at Sbgglobal. They were 19-22 ATS at home and 13-28 ATS on the road. The Wizards do have an exciting player in John Wall and he was excited about the new uniforms. Perhaps the Wizards can be improved next season. They were just 21st in the NBA this past season on offense as they averaged 97.3 points per game and they were 24th in the league on defense as they gave up 104.7 points per game.
