Some bettors out there certainly like putting a large amount of money on things that are a long shot. A majority of them don’t work out, but the chances of them happening could make for a crazy pay day.

There are bets placed on huge underdogs, and then there’s placing a $10,000 bet on the Washington Wizards to win the NBA championship. One unknown person dropped that amount on the current team to win the title in 2021.

The same 2021 season in which the Wizards are 8-17, and are currently the second-worst team in the entire Eastern Conference.

Should the bet hit, the ticket would pay out $5 million in winnings.

The Wizards have only managed to win 2 consecutive games during this season so far, although, they do have impressive wins against the Brooklyn Nets twice this year.
