2022 WNBA Championship Odds Movement

  • [Sep 9] A first-time champion will be crowned this year, as the Aces (-275) and Sun (+215) set to face off in Game 1 of the WNBA Finals on Sunday.
  • [Aug 26] We’re down to the final four, with Las Vegas the odds-on favorites for the WNBA title ahead of the semifinals at odds of -105
  • [Aug 15] Entering the WNBA Playoffs, the Aces are favored at +175 odds ahead of the Sky at +230
  • [Aug 8] Odds for the Storm are starting to fade as the WNBA Playoffs near, with some sportsbooks now offering +700 for Seattle to win their fifth title.
  • [Aug 2] Mired in a fourteen-game losing streak, the Indiana Fever have been eliminated from post-season contention
  • [Jul 25] The two tops teams in the league, Las Vegas (+180) and Chicago (+220) lead the ways in WNBA futures betting
  • [May 3] The Aces and Sun are the favorites heading in to the 2022 campaign, while the reigning champion Chicago Sky have odds of +500

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 ten of the last 13 WNBA championships
  • Only five Eastern Conference teams have won the WNBA Championship since 1997
  • Only once has a team with a sub-500 record reached the WNBA Finals

Eastern Conference

The Sun have a loaded roster, with league MVP-favorite Jonquel Jones, young guard talent in Courtney Williams and Dijonai Carrington as well as the ever-reliable DeWanna Bonner. It would not be a surprise to see them raise the trophy at the end of the season

Western Conference

Out west, the wild card for the Phoenix Mercury will be the status of Brittney Griner. Currently detained in Russia, if her release is granted and she returns this season they will be absolutely loaded with fellow All-Star C Tina Charles now in the valley of the desert and the backcourt trio of Diana Taurasi, Skylar Diggins-Smith and Kia Nurse.

Past WNBA Champions

Year Team
2021 Chicago Sky

2018 Seattle Storm
2017 Minnesota Lynx
2016 Los Angeles Sparks
2015 Minnesota Lynx
2014 Phoenix Mercury
2013 Minnesota Lynx
2012 Indiana Fever

The Chicago Sky won their first ever WNBA Championship to end the 2021 season, as Candace Parker made good on her promise to deliver a championship to her hometown after leaving the LA Sparks last offseason and signing in the Windy City.

WNBA Teams That Have Never Won a Championship

Team Year Established
New York Liberty 1997
Las Vegas Aces 1997
Connecticut Sun 1999
Atlanta Dream 2008

Will 2022 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.
