WNBA Finals Odds 2023

Last Updated: May 13, 2023

The WNBA offseason saw a flurry of moves that has led to two teams looking like juggernauts before the first tip-off. While the top-heavy teams will be battling for season-long supremacy, the race to the playoffs among the second tier of teams may be the most exciting aspect of the regular season.

Here’s a look at the 2023 WNBA Finals odds and our favorites, contenders, and sleepers to win the upcoming title.

2023 WNBA Finals Prediction

Las Vegas Aces (+125)

You could almost flip a coin when deciding if the Aces or New York Liberty should be the betting favorite in 2023. The reasons the Aces are the pick include having the best player in the league in A’ja Wilson, arguably the best women’s player ever in Candace Parker, the best head coach in Becky Hammon, and the best three-point shooter in Kelsey Plum.

It is also difficult to ignore their frontcourt depth, especially considering Parker’s injury history and age. Anything short of a lengthy WNBA Finals series will be a disappointment in Sin City.

2023 WNBA Finals Favorites

New York Liberty (+135)

Not to be outdone, the Liberty went and added Breanna Stewart, Courtney Vandersloot, Jonquel Jones, and Kayla Thornton in free agency and via trade. They join Sabrina Ionescu and Betnijah Lacey to form the East’s super team.

Ionescu played the most games in her three-year career in 2022, and another 35-plus game season with the new additions make this team a force. The Liberty have the size in the frontcourt to challenge the Aces.

2023 WNBA Finals Contenders

Washington Mystics (+1500)

The success of the Mystics continues to be tied to the health of Elena Delle Donne. Her return to a nearly full-time role in 2022 helped lead the Mystics to a 22-14 record.

The question for the Mystics is not how they will stop teams like the Aces and Liberty, but how they will keep up with better offenses. Only four teams finished with fewer points per game than the Mystics, and one of them was the Liberty.

The addition of Brittney Sykes will help alleviate some concerns, but this will be a team effort.

Phoenix Mercury (+2500)

The Mercury’s season will hinge largely on Brittney Griner. A 10-month layoff due of her detainment in Russia may be nothing, or it could change her game.

Regardless, her return is sure to impact the Mercury, especially on the boards, as Phoenix finished ninth in defensive rebounds and last in offensive rebounds last season. Griner’s presence in the paint will help in games when scoring threats Skylar Diggins-Smith, Diana Taurasi, and Sophie Cunningham have off nights.

At (+2500) on DraftKings, Phoenix may be the best betting value if you want to wager on a non-super team.

2023 WNBA Finals Sleepers

Connecticut Sun (+3000)

Trading Jonquel Jones hurt the top talent aspect of the Sun roster, but the overall level of talent is still higher than most team’s floors. The arrival of Tiffany Hayes in a trade with Atlanta is the biggest addition to the offense that also bolsters Brionna Jones.

The Sun may not be an exciting team to watch, but they will contend for a spot in the playoffs, and potentially more as a ‘Jack-of-all, Master-of-none’ team.

Chicago Sky (+4000)

The East has openings for teams to make a run, hence Chicago being the second sleeper. Kahleah Copper is one of the better points per minutes players in the WNBA and has a good backcourt to help on offense. Losing Vandersloot (Liberty) and Allie Quigley (personal) in the offseason may be viewed as a knock for Copper and the Sky, but the additions of Marina Mabrey and Courtney Williams will ease one of the worst offseasons in recent Sky vintage.
