A newcomer has emerged as the betting favorite to win the WNBA title.

The Connecticut Sun, one of five teams yet to win a WNBA championship, enter the playoffs as the betting favorite at PointsBet ahead of last year’s finalists, the Las Vegas Aces and Seattle Storm.

Connecticut is +180 to win it all, having won 14 consecutive games to earn the top seed and a double-bye to the semifinals. Las Vegas is the No. 2 seed, also receiving a double-bye on the opposite side of the bracket. Seattle, the defending champion, will need to win a single-elimination game to set up a series against the Sun. The Storm come in at +400.

Seattle opened the season as the +175 favorite to repeat, ahead of the Aces at +300. Connecticut was +800 at the start of the year.

The playoffs begin on Thursday with two single-elimination games. No. 6 Chicago meets No. 7 Dallas with the winner advancing to take on Minnesota. The other first-round game is No. 8 New York against No. 5 Phoenix. The winner advances to face Seattle.

After the opening two rounds of single-elimination games, the semifinals and finals are each five-game series.

Connecticut will have home-court advantage throughout the playoffs and feature MVP candidate Jonquel Jones, who is averaging 19 points and 11 rebounds per game.
