DraftKings offering odds on Detroit Pistons going winless for rest of season
The 2023-24 Detroit Pistons may never win again.
And at least one DraftKings Sportsbook bettor is praying for that to happen.
Oddsmakers at DraftKings decided to have a little fun with the Pistons historic NBA losing streak, which stretched to 25 games after a home loss to the Jazz, who were on the second night of a back-to-back and missing four key players Thursday night.
Ahead of that game, DraftKings began offering betting odds on when Detroit would win its next game.
One bettor took a gamble on the saddest outcome of all: The Pistons to lose every game for the rest of the season.
They put a measly $40 down on Detroit to lose out at +100,000, for a payout of $40,040 if somehow they cant get in the win column over their final 45 games.
That would require the Pistons finishing with a historically awful 2-80 record.

It sounds impossible, but few teams in NBA history have had a stretch as bad as Detroit’s last two months.
The Pistons are one loss away from matching the NBA’s single-season losing streak record, held by the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers and the 2013-14 Philadelphia 76ers.

The Pistons will get their next shot at snapping the streak during a home-and-home against the Nets, which starts Saturday in Brooklyn and wraps up in Detroit on Tuesday.
Theyll then host the Raptors on Dec. 30 before heading out on a four-game road trip.

Detroit was projected to be one of the worst teams in the NBA before the season, but not this poor.
The Pistons’ 27.5 win total was the second-fewest at DraftKings ahead of the Washington Wizards (24.5 wins).
That number is down to an unbelievable 9.5 after two winless months.
