The Detroit Pistons have looked so bad during the 2023-2024 NBA season so far that some people have joked that they might not win another game this year.

DraftKings is willing to let you bet on that actually happening.

The Pistons are currently 2-26 and find themselves riding a 25-game losing streak after their home loss to the Jazz on Thursday night. Detroit is now closing in on the league’s 28-game losing streak record, which is held by the Philadelphia 76ers.

Before Thursday’s game, DraftKings started offering betting odds on when the Pistons might finally win their third game of the season. One better decided to go for broke and place a bet on Detroit never actually doing so.

The bettor dropped $40 on Detroit losing out for the rest of the year at +100,000, which would be a payout of $40,040 if it actually happens. That will require the Pistons to lose 54 more games in a row, which doesn’t seem very possible (but hey, records are meant to be broken).

If that happened, the Pistons would end up with a brutal 2-80 record, far surpassing the worst record in league history, 9-73, set by the 76ers during the 1972-73 season.

To be fair, following that loss to the Jazz, Detroit is down to +70,000 to lose every game for the remainder of the season.

We’ll see how they fare in their upcoming home-and-home against the Brooklyn Nets, which begins on Saturday in Brooklyn and ends on Tuesday in Detroit.
