Best odds to win the WNBA Championship
The favourite: Las Vegas Aces (-400)
The Aces are cut-and-dry the best team in the league this season, so it's no surprise to see them atop the odds board at the moment.
Las Vegas won a league-high 26 regular season games last season and has already surpassed that mark, going 27-3 through its first 30 games.
The team had four starters make the All-Star Game including reigning MVP A'ja Wilson, who's averaging 21.2 points and 9.6 boards per game. Jackie Young (18.6 PPG), Kelsey Plum (19.0 PPG) and Chelsea Gray (15.0 PPG) are putting in work, too.
The Aces are averaging a league-best 94.0 PPG and 21 of their wins have come by double-digit points.
Other WNBA Championship choices
Best value: Connecticut Sun (+4,000)
The Liberty will probably end up in the finals, but at +250 we can hardly call that value.
The Sun, on the other hand, we can get behind. They were +4,000 before the season started, were +2,000 when we last checked in and are now back at +4,000, despite a 21-9 record.
That has a lot to do with injuries to Brionna Jones (ruptured Achilles) and DeWanna Bonner (back issues).
Jones is done for the year while Bonner hasn't looked like herself since the injury. We'll still give the Sun a look for their depth, though.
Connecticut had the third-best regular season record last year (25-11) and won the Eastern Conference en route to its loss against Las Vegas in the WNBA Finals.
Stephanie White took the reins as head coach following Curt Miller's departure in the offseason. White has had success in the WNBA before, taking the Indiana Fever to the Finals in 2015, and she's certainly making the most of the Sun's squad right now.
Team to watch: New York Liberty (+250)
To beat a superteam like the Aces, you're going to have to build a super team. That's exactly what the Liberty did this offseason.
New York added an immediate scoring threat when it signed Breanna Stewart in free agency.
The two-time WNBA champion and 2018 MVP led the league in scoring last season (21.8 points/game) and finished seventh in rebounding, too (7.6 rebounds/game). Right now, Stewart is second in scoring (23.3) and fourth in rebounding (9.2)
But the acquisition of Jonquel Jones shouldn't be understated, either. Those two slot in alongside Sabrina Ionescu and Natasha Howard, both of whom were all-stars last season.
New York owns a solid 24-6 record and has rebounded from every loss with a win of at least nine points. It also beat the Aces by 38 points on August 8.
The Aces rule the West, and a clash with the Liberty coming out of the East feels inevitable.
