The NBA Draft is next month and online betting fans are watching to see where Kentucky superstar guard John Wall goes.
It is likely that Wall will be taken first overall by the Washington Wizards which would immediately make them more competitive vs. Internet betting odds.
Online betting odds on Washington had them as underdogs in most games this past season. With Wall on the team the Wizards would be a lot more exciting and a team to consider in Internet betting. Wall would be very happy to play for the Wizards. "They need a fresh face coming in right now when the organization had been at an all-time low," Wall’s agent Dan Fegan said. "The only place to go is up and if he goes there he can help them win." Wall definitely wants to go number one overall. "I was real nervous coming down to the wire," Wall said. "My goal is to be the No. 1 pick. I can’t wait for June 24 and see."
Washington had the second worst record in the Eastern Conference at 26-56 but they could definitely be improved next season vs. the online betting odds with Wall on the team. Wall led Kentucky with 16.6 points a game. He realizes that he needs to improve his outside shot to be even better in the NBA. "I’m working on all the angles on my jump shot," Wall said. "My jump shot is the key thing. Guys go on the pick and roll and will force me to knock down shots. I want to be one of those point guards who knock down shots you have to get over the top.” Wall really did well in all aspects at Kentucky including his grade point average which was very good. "People thought I was just going to look over college basketball and not take it seriously, not do my school work and just look to the draft," Wall said. "But that wasn’t my goal or my mindset. I went to Kentucky to be a better player.”
The Wizards had a rough season vs. the Internet betting odds as Gilbert Arenas was suspended and long-time owner Abe Pallin passed away. Things could be much better next season though as a new owner is expected. Getting Wall first overall in the Draft would also be a major step towards improving vs. the online betting odds.
