Whilst the Wizards certainly aren't favourites, having worse odds to win the Championship than last year, we can see a strong improvement in their chances of winning the Eastern Conference (or at least compared to their pitiful odds in the previous season).
It is too early for us to start tipping our best bets for the NBA Divisions, but we will get to work and make our recommendations right here as soon as we can.
Some other markets currently available with some sportsbooks for Washington fans include:
NBA Coach of the Year Odds, Wes Unseld Jr.: 67.00

Again, we still need to wait a little longer before we can list the DPOY or Most Improved Player for the Wizards.
