The best way of predicting the future is to look back at the past. Here are some interesting trends to consider before making a wager:
- Western Conference teams have won nine of the last 10 WNBA championships
- Only three Eastern Conference teams have won the WNBA Championship since 1997
- The no. 1 seed has reached the WNBA Finals in each of the last three years, winning twice
- Only once has a team with a sub-500 record reached the WNBA Finals
The Washington Mystics won their first Eastern Conference title in 2018 and are expected to repeat again this season thanks to a high octane offense led by former MVP Elena Delle Donne and electrifying forward Emma Meeseman.
Seattle opened with the shortest odds in the West, but were dealt a devastating blow after Finals MVP Breanna Stewart ruptured her Achilles tendon while playing in the 2019 EuroLeague title game in April. Adding injury to insult, 11-time All-Star Sue Bird was also ruled out for the season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery to remove debris from her left knee.
Past WNBA Champions
|2016||Los Angeles Sparks|
Three different franchises have won the WNBA championship in each of the past three seasons. That’s quite a contrast from the late 1990’s when the Houston Comets won the league’s first four titles behind the brilliant play of Hall of Famer Cynthia Cooper.
WNBA Teams That Have Never Won a Championship
|New York Liberty||1997|
|Las Vegas Aces||1997|
Will 2019 be the year the Liberty finally win their first WNBA championship? New York came tantalizingly close during the league’s early days, reaching the WNBA Finals in four of their first five seasons.
