WNBA Commissioner's Cup favorites

Las Vegas Aces (+125)

The defending champs and preseason WNBA title odds favorites, it only makes sense that the Aces would top this board as well. 

Returning their core from 2022's championship run, the Aces also managed to keep prized head coach Becky Hammon after overtures from the NBA, including the now-coachless Toronto Raptors. 

What's more, the Aces signed former MVP Candace Parker, fortifying a simply dominant front line with reigning MVP A'ja Wilson

The Liberty are going to put up one hell of a fight, but the Aces are the team to beat until proven otherwise.

New York Liberty (+130)

There are good offseasons, and then there's what the New York Liberty did over their winter hibernation.

With Sabrina Ionescu having already put up an MVP-caliber season last year, the Liberty went out and traded for former MVP Jonquel Jones at 30 cents on the dollar, then days later acquired free agency prize Breanna Stewart, arguably the best player in the entire league.

Also pilfering Courtney Vandersloot from Chicago, the Liberty have a simply awesome core of talent, and should be ready to match the Aces' formidable title defense. 

It's very tough to see any other WNBA team competing with these two this season, as the odds plainly illustrate.

WNBA Commissioner's Cup explained

The Commissioner's Cup consists of 60 games — 10 for each team — throughout the first half of the regular season, from May 19-July 12. The first home and road game each team plays against in-conference teams will count toward Cup standings.

The teams from each conference with the best record in those 10 games will then face off in the Commissioner's Cup final, which will take place on August 15, 2023.

The winning team's players will receive a $500k bonus, along with the Commissioner's Cup trophy. 

Understanding WNBA Commissioner's Cup odds

Sportsbooks will post odds for the WNBA Commissioner's Cup shortly before the regular season begins. These odds are adjusted throughout the season as players switch teams, show steady improvement, or are injured. Sportsbooks will also adjust the WNBA odds based on handle and liability to certain teams.

WNBA Commissioner's Cup odds will usually look like this:

  • New York Liberty +300

This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to win $300 if the Liberty win the Commissioner's Cup. If it's close to the end of the tournament and the WNBA has a particularly dominant team, you might see a minus sign (-) ahead of its odds. 

  • Las Vegas Aces -180

This means you have to bet $180 to win $100 on an Aces Commissioner's Cup win.

Above we have listed the American odds. However, these are easy to convert to decimal odds or fractional odds with our odds converter tool. And don't forget to check out our WNBA forum if you're interested in chatting with other basketball bettors about WNBA odds.
