The Washington Mystics have the fifth-best odds of winning the 2024 WNBA championship according to DraftKings Sportsbook.
Here is the list from top to bottom:
- Las Vegas Aces, +120
- New York Liberty, +230
- Connecticut Sun, +850
- Dallas Wings, +1000
- Washington Mystics, +2500
- Indiana Fever, +3500
- Los Angeles Sparks, +4000
- Minnesota Lynx, +4500
- Atlanta Dream, +5000
- Chicago Sky, +5500
- Seattle Storm, +6500
- Phoenix Mercury, +6500
The ranking isn’t particularly surprising. The Mystics were in the playoffs last year and had the potential to contend for a championship if multiple player injuries didn’t happen at once. Assuming they bring everyone back, starting with Elena Delle Donne, the Mystics can be dark horse contenders once again.
Of course, Washington is also a dark horse contender at best. The Las Vegas Aces just won their second straight championship and the New York Liberty are right behind them. It will be difficult to see the Mystics be outright championship contenders without some “help” in the form of injuries to those teams, the Sun and Wings, while the Mystics keep their core and add another major free agent in the process.
Do you think the Mystics are realistically a Top 5 team in the WNBA next year assuming they stay the course? Let us know in the comments below.
