The WNBA semifinals have officially wrapped, and with that, we’re on to the final round of the WNBA Playoffs. No repeats this year, either — a new champion could be crowned as soon as Sept. 15.
The WNBA Finals features the Las Vegas Aces and Connecticut Sun, two of the very best teams during the regular season. Each franchise will be vying for its first-ever championship trophy, so the stakes are sky-high.
Who will come out on top in 2022? Below, we’ll take a look at the current betting odds and provide an outlook for the 2022 WNBA Finals.

2022 WNBA Finals Favorites
Las Vegas Aces (-290)
The Aces are all about offense, and so far, their strategy is working. In coach Becky Hammon‘s first year with the team, Las Vegas finished first in points per game, pace, and offensive rating, while coming in second in overall net rating. The defense hasn’t always been there, but quite frankly, it doesn’t always need to be.
Las Vegas has four players averaging double-digit scoring per game, headlined by Kelsey Plum and 2022 MVP A’ja Wilson. The two are responsible for roughly 45% of the team’s scoring per game, and each is uniquely difficult to defend.
Jackie Young, Chelsea Gray, and Dearica Hamby round out this team’s high-powered starting rotation. Each has at least one All-Star selection under their belt, making this a truly unstoppable unit. So long as they’re hitting from deep — just as they have been thus far — it’ll be tough to defeat this team.
The Aces have blown through two difficult teams in the Phoenix Mercury and Seattle Storm, which explains why they’re such heavy favorites in the WNBA Finals. Get in on them now before they win Game 1 and juice this bet even more.
2022 WNBA Finals Contenders
Connecticut Sun (+360)
Perhaps this could be the year that the Connecticut Sun finally win a WNBA title. The franchise has been to the Finals three times in its history but has never been able to seal the deal.
With that said, betting on Connecticut could be a savvy choice. Hungry, experienced stars are abundant on this team, including Jonquel Jones, DeWanna Bonner, Brionna Jones, Alyssa Thomas, and Courtney Williams.

Stylistically speaking, Connecticut does a little bit of everything well. The team ranks second in offensive and defensive rating and first in net rating, highlighting the team’s two-way ability. At (+220) odds, there’s good value here.
The Sun stayed with the Aces in all three of their regular-season matchups this year, and they’ve shown that they’re capable of bringing them down. I still don’t expect them to win early in this series, so wait a bit before backing them unless you’re extremely confident in their chances.
2022 WNBA Finals Outlook
Las Vegas Aces (-290)
The WNBA Finals will be competitive, but I like the Aces to prevail. Becky Hammon’s team has been elite all season long, and while the Sun will push them to their limits, I believe Las Vegas has an extra gear that Connecticut simply can’t reach.
Back the Aces to win their first WNBA title.
