Bet WNBA with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.
The WNBA is set to tip off its 25th season tomorrow!
The 12 teams will battle through a 32-game season, with a month-long break from July 12 to August 14 due to the Summer Olympics.
William Hill has odds up for every squad to win the 2021 WNBA title, with three teams close together at the top.
The defending champion Storm still lead the way at +220 after opening at +160. Before last season commenced, Seattle had closed as the +300 favorite at William Hill to win it all. The Storm rewarded their backers by defeating the Aces in a three-game sweep in the 2020 WNBA Finals.
The Aces are close behind at +250, with their price dropping from its original +350 number. The Mystics, the 2019 champs, are next at +350.
The Sky and Lynx are tied for the fourth-lowest odds at +800, with Minnesota having the most drastic odds shift for its championship futures of any WNBA team.
“We definitely lose big with the Lynx,” said Nick Bogdanovich, Director of Trading for William Hill US. “That’s the only team we have any liability with, even though the Aces have about twice as many tickets and dollars as anyone else. The Lynx went from 40/1 down to 20/1 and are now at +800. Someone definitely likes Minnesota, professional money I would imagine.”
The Sparks and Mercury follow at 12/1, with the Sun lurking nearby at 14/1. Then there’s the four longshots: the Liberty (50/1), Wings (60/1), Fever (125/1) and Dream (125/1).
In terms of which teams William Hill bettors are taking to win the 2021 WNBA championship, many are hoping the Aces can trump them all. Las Vegas has captured 28% for each of the total number of tickets and total dollars wagered.
The Storm rank second in each by grabbing 16% apiece, while the Lynx have received 10% of the total number of tickets and 15% of the total dollars wagered. That is highlighted by one Nevada bettor placing $1,000 on Lynx 40/1 for a total potential payout of $41,000.
The Mystics are the only other team to be in double digits for either category, as they’ve drawn 13% of the total dollars wagered.
