Odds to Win 2023 WNBA Championship Before the Season Starts

A new WNBA season has arrived, and the era of superteams has been emphasized heading into the 2023 season. The offseason movement saw the best players go to the organizations who treated their players the best.

The Las Vegas Aces are the favorites at +120 to defend their championship. They return A’ja Wilson, Jackie Young, Kelsey Plum, Chelsea Gray, and add the legendary Candace Parker. The only question is whether coach Becky Hammon will remain on the bench through courtship with NBA coaching jobs.

Nearly a co-favorite, the New York Liberty were a pesky team in 2023. They were led by Sabrina Ionescu and Stefanie Dolson, who now have a lot of help. The Liberty signed former MVP Breanna Stewart and the best point guard in the league in Courtney Vandersloot. New York also acquired Jonquel Jones to create one of the most formidable starting lineups. The Liberty are +130 to win the championship.

Let’s look back at what has happened in the season so far, and analyze the teams with the best WNBA betting lines of winning it.


Betting Odds to Win 2023 WNBA Championship

When: May 19 – September 10
Number of Games: 40
Number of teams: 12


Second Tier

The Washington Mystics have one of the sport’s best unicorns. Elena Delle Donne is entering her 10th season and at 6 foot 5 is a difficult matchup because of her guard-like skills but also the ability to post up over smaller defenders. 

She wants to win, and she has veterans like Kristi Toliver and Natasha Cloud to aid there. The Mystics also have young guard Jazmine Jones, who has played well and gets a change of scenery. Second-year players Evina Westbrook, Shakira Austin, and new addition Emily Engster add depth to a team in need of it. The Mystics are third on the odds board at +1300.

Then there is the Connecticut Sun, who reached the WNBA Finals a season ago. They are at +1800 to win the championship. While they lost Jones to New York, there is still a strong veteran core returning.

DeWanna Bonner enters her 14th season as a versatile wing. She proved to be the emotional leader during last season’s postseason run. Returning for an 11th season is Tiffany Hayes and Alyssa Thomas is back for her 10th season. Rebecca Allen is another veteran guard back in the mold, while Brionna Jones, the team’s star and former defensive player of the year, enters her seventh season.

Best Longshot

The Phoenix Mercury had a difficult season in 2022. They had to play it without Brittney Griner, a 6-foot-9 center and former MVP. She was detained in Russia in February of that year and was not released until a prisoner swap in December.

It was clearly an emotional season as Skylar Diggins-Smith and Dianna Taurasi both took leave of absence. But they return with their “sister” back in the mix. Griner gives them a great screener, a mismatch in the post, and a great defender who provides a security blanket.

At +2000, that would be a good ticket to hold onto as the season rolls along.
