LAS VEGAS – With the WNBA Season coming towards the backend, the odds to win the WNBA Championship are beginning to tighten up towards the top. The Las Vegas Aces have opened up the season as the favorites to win and have remained in that position all season long.

The one team that has jumped up to threaten their odds though are the Chicago Sky who opened right behind them with the second shortest odds.

2022 WNBA Championship Odds

Las Vegas Aces +150
Chicago Sky +240
Seattle Storm +400
Connecticut Sun +410
Washington Mystics +1025
New York Liberty +5000
Phoenix Mercury +7000
Los Angeles Sparks +7500
Dallas Wings +7500
Atlanta Dream +11000
Minnesota Lynx +13000
Indiana Fever +26000

The Aces have held a tight grip on the shortest sports betting odds all season long and there are tons of factors that feed into that. First off, they are the highest-scoring team in the league putting up 89.8 ppg throughout the year thus far.

They also have a +4.4-point differential which is tied for the third-highest in the league.

Getting a whole team effort, they have three players who are in the top-10 in scoring in Kelsey Plum (19.9 ppg), A’ja Wilson (18.5 ppg), and Jackie Young (17.1 ppg). A’ja Wilson also leads the league in rebounding at 10.1 rpg while Dearica Hamby is in the top-10 as well with 7.9 rpg.

In the assists department, Chelsea Gray leads the way averaging the sixth most in the league at 6 per game.

As long as the Aces keep playing team ball, it is hard seeing any other team dethrone them for the shortest odds or stopping them before they at least reach the WNBA finals.

Value In The Sky

Looking at where the standings are, the Chicago Sky have the best record in the league right now which is why their odds sit in contention.

They also sit ahead of the Aces in a number of important categories including their point differential which is the second-highest in the league at +5.7 and their defense as they allow just 80.1 ppg, the fifth-lowest of any team.

If they can continue at this rate, their odds would continue to shorten. All said and done, a bet on either the Aces or Sky to win the championship could turn out profitable if taken sooner rather than later.
