We’re entering the fourth season of the annual South Point-lined Play of the Day competition, effective July 1.
Starting bankrolls have reset to $10,000, with the maximum bet being to win $1,000 and the minimum wager $300. Ray Brewer won back-to-back titles in the 2015-2016 and 2016-17 seasons, after Taylor Bern prevailed in 2014-2015.
Portland Trailblazers minus-6 vs. Washington Wizards, $550 to win $500: Washington has looked shaky without injured point guard John Wall, and that's to be expected. But the Wizards completely fell apart Monday night, falling at Utah, 116-69. The offense clearly struggles to create open looks without Wall, and it's only getting worse the longer he's out.
Portland isn't a great team, but the Blazers have a good home-court advantage and enough firepower to ward off the undermanned Wizards.
Current Standings: Granger (10-9, $11,975), Brewer (17-16, $9,230), Keefer (15-15-1, $9,881), Grimala (8-8, $8,755)
