2021 WNBA Championship Odds: Sun Favored Over Aces, Storm

Jonquel Jones & Sun lead latest 2021 WNBA championship odds.

The 2021 WNBA season is well underway and a new favorite has emerged. The Connecticut Sun are now the favorites in the latest WNBA championship odds.

According to the best basketball betting sites, the Connecticut Sun sit at +175, followed by the Las Vegas Aces (+225), the defending champion Seattle Storm (+425), the Phoenix Mercury (+650) and the Minnesota Lynx (+700) to round out the top five.

The Storm return former league MVP Breanna Stewart to the fold, with Stewart trying to win her third championship with Seattle since entering the league in 2016.

The second team on the list in WNBA championship odds, the Las Vegas Aces at +225, may be the most intriguing given their wealth of frontcourt talent. The Aces have two dominant centers in A’ja Wilson and Liz Cambage, with Wilson winning MVP in 2020. These two have continued their dominance early on and have the Aces sitting first in the Western Conference.

Why The Connecticut Sun Are Favored In WNBA Championship Odds

The Connecticut Sun began the season at +1000 to win the championship, but they have come out flying in their first 30 games and now sit at +175. The Sun have a 24-6 record, winning 12 games in a row, and currently sit nine games up on the second-place Chicago Sky.

Certain players are able to elevate their teams to heights that can sometimes make them unbeatable and that is what is happening with Suns forward Jonquel Jones. The 27-year-old is having an outstanding season, averaging 19.6 points, 11.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. Jones is making a strong case for MVP and has her team leading the charge in championship odds.

The Sun are also getting help from their other starters as four of the five are averaging double-digit points. This shows how unselfish this team is, and how well they play together. Look out for the Sun as they are firing on all cylinders.

Bettors Should Consider The Aces In Odds To Win WNBA Championship

Having a dominant center in the WNBA can be the difference between making a deep postseason run or missing the playoffs altogether. When you have two frontcourt players worthy of MVP discussion in A’ja Wilson and Liz Cambage, the Aces are going to be a problem for whoever they face come playoff time.

Cambage opted out of the 2020 WNBA season due to health concerns surrounding COVID-19 but is back for 2021 and the fact the Aces made the WNBA Finals without her shows just how deep this Las Vegas team is.

Cambage has had a great start to her season, putting up a stat line of 14.7 points, 8.4 rebounds, 1.7 blocks and 0.9 steals per game. And she isn’t even the catalyst of this team. That distinction belongs to former WNBA MVP A’ja Wilson.

Wilson is having another spectacular year, putting up a stat line of 18.7 points, 9.4 rebounds, 1.3 blocks and 0.9 steals per game. If the Aces have any hopes of winning the championship, Wilson is going to have to be a huge part of it.

The Aces have an incredibly balanced offensive attack with seven – yes, seven – players averaging double-digit points. It remains to be seen how they will deal with certain players like Breanna Stewart when it gets to playoff time, but for now, they have a roster that should at least make it to the Western Conference final.

Best Bet: Las Vegas Aces (+225) 

Past WNBA Champions

One of the more fascinating aspects of WNBA basketball is that there isn’t a dominant franchise that would be considered a dynasty. Sure, the Houston Comets claimed the first four championships when the league debuted in 1997 but since then, only one team has won back-to-back championships and that was the Los Angeles Sparks in 2001 and 2002.

The WNBA has seen a different champion crowned in each of the last six seasons, which shows that the futures market may have some great spots for you to jump on and grab a team that could climb the mountain.

For reference, here are the past six WNBA champions and their WNBA Finals opponents:

How To Read WNBA Championship Odds

At an online sportsbook that would list WNBA championship odds, they would look similar to this:

  • Connecticut Sun +175
  • Las Vegas Aces +225
  • Seattle Storm +425
  • Phoenix Mercury +650

Since there is no minus sign (-) on any of the options, the team with the lowest odds would be considered the favorite. In this case, it’s the Connecticut Sun at +175. Every other team that’s listed is considered an underdog.

If you believe the Storm will win the WNBA championship and you bet $100 and it happens, you would win $275 – your $100 is returned and you would gain $175 in profit.
