Rundown per team to Win WNBA Championship Before the Season Starts

MyBookie WNBA 2024 | WNBA Line Today

Big things are coming for the WNBA as they prepare for a new season, which will be the 28th in the history of the league. Viewership and interest were up across the board, with last season being the most successful on a number of different levels. The general consensus is that things will be even better this season, especially with Caitlin Clark leaving the college ranks to start life as a pro. This is something to keep in mind, as the odds are sure to shift the moment she lands in her new home.

Before we start to look at each of the teams and their current WNBA odds, I think it might be a good idea to talk about some key dates ahead of the start of the new season. This is specifically for those who have not paid much attention to the WNBA over the years but who might now be part of a growing audience.


Key Dates: 2024 WNBA Season

April 15: WNBA Draft
April 28: Start of Training Camp
May 5: Start of Preseason
May 14: Opening Night

It’s also worth noting that there will be an All-Star Break on July 20, as well as another break for the Summer Olympics. The trade deadline for the season lands on August 8, with the final regular season game set for September 19.

Now, let’s look at the current odds, as well as how each team did last season.


Las Vegas Aces (+100)

This could be a historic season for the Aces as they look to win another championship and complete the threepeat. They were dominant in the regular season in 2023, going 34-6 before winning their second straight crown by beating the New York Liberty 3-1 in the WNBA Finals. All signs point to the Aces once again being a powerhouse but winning 3 in a row is no easy feat.

New York Liberty (+250)

Many would argue that the Liberty had the best squad of players to choose from last season, and things looked bright after winning the Commissioner’s Cup, which is an in-season tournament in the WNBA. They did make it all the way to the Final, but they were all but blown out by the Aces. It would not be a huge surprise to see these two teams meet again in the finals.

Connecticut Sun (+1200)

The Sun made it to the WNBA Finals in the 2022 season before falling at the final hurdle with a 3-1 loss at the hands of the Las Vegas Aces. They had a very decent regular season, going 27-13, but they crashed and burned in the playoffs, going out to the Minnesota Lynx in Round 1. They will be heading into the new season with a bit of a chip on their shoulder.

Seattle Storm (+1200)

Last season was nothing short of a nightmare for the Storm, as they managed just 11 wins and missed the playoffs. That was a long fall for a team that was a champion in 2020 and who won 22 games in 2022. The bookies seem to think they will bounce back after doing some business in the offseason. A return to the postseason will be job number one for the Seattle Storm.

Dallas Wings (+2000)

It was a very decent regular season for the Wings, who finished with 22 wins and a spot in the postseason. They breezed through Round 1 with a sweep of the Atlanta Dream, but they found out just how much work still needs to be done after going down in a 3-game sweep at the hands of the eventual champions. They should certainly be back in the playoffs again this year.

Indiana Fever (+2000)

Here is where things get interesting, as the Indiana Fever, a team that missed the playoffs last season, has the #1 pick in the draft. They will almost Certainly take Caitlin Clark with that pick, and while that certainly is good news for fans, who are clamoring for season tickets, you have to wonder just how much of a difference the rookie can make. A trip to the postseason would be a good start.

Phoenix Mercury (+2500)

The Mercury made it to the WNBA Finals in 2021, but it has been mostly downhill since then. They were dead last in the standings last season with a 9-31 record, but the bookies are of the belief that a return to the playoffs might be on the cards in 2024. Realistically, that is probably the best they can hope for.

Atlanta Dream (+5000)

We are now drifting into the realm of teams that look to be a longshot to make it to the playoffs this coming season. The Dream made it in last year, but it was a short visit given that they were swept in 2 games in the opening round. They had 19 wins in 2023, but a drop off looks imminent.

Minnesota Lynx (+5000)

Much like the Dream, the Lynx ended last season with 19 wins and a spot in the playoffs, where they met Connecticut in the opening round. They did give the Sun a bit of a scare but eventually lost in 3 games. We are probably looking at a similar type of season in 2024.

Washington Mystics (+8000)

The Mystics made it into the playoffs last season, but a repeat of that looks to be somewhat unlikely. They did put up a decent fight against the New York Liberty in Round 1, but they ultimately went down in a sweep.

Chicago Sky (+8000)

You look at these odds and would probably find it strange to learn that the Sky were the WNBA champions in 2021. They have fallen off dramatically since then and needed 3 straight wins at the end of last season just to make the playoffs.

LA Sparks (+8000)

If there is a bright spot for the Sparks ahead of the new season, it’s that they have 2 picks in the top 5 in the upcoming draft, which should help them build for the future. That said, it remains to be seen if their rookies can move them up closer to a potential playoff berth.
