  • The Las Vegas Aces have won consecutive WNBA championships.
  • Las Vegas is a +100 preseason favorite to win a third straight title.

The Las Vegas Aces have their sights set on a three-peat in 2024 after back-to-back championship seasons.

The Houston Comets are the only team to win three titles in a row, winning one in each of the first four seasons of the WNBA between 1997 and 2000.

Las Vegas is in an excellent position to make history as the preseason favorite in the latest championship odds at the online sportsbook.

Win total: 32.5
To make playoffs: -10000
To miss playoffs: +1600
Championship odds: +100

The Aces have led the WNBA in wins in each of the last two seasons, including last year’s impressive 34-6 overall record. The New York Liberty finished two wins behind them in second place.

Las Vegas has seen its preseason price move from +115 to +100 in the WNBA championship odds. For comparison, the Aces were +125 preseason favorites last year.

In addition, Aces forward A’ja Wilson is the WNBA MVP odds favorite after last year’s third-place finish. Wilson has won two MVP awards in her career.

Aces 2024 Betting Prediction

Prediction: Aces to win the championship (+100)

It’s no fun betting on the preseason favorite, but the Aces might have minus odds of winning the title by the summer. That happened last year when it became clear that Las Vegas was the best team in the WNBA.

The Aces ranked first in offensive rating (114.8), defensive rating (99.2), and net rating (+15.6) in 2023. They then went 8-1 in the playoffs, including a 3-1 victory over the New York Liberty in the WNBA Finals.

Las Vegas is better after improving its roster on the margins in the offseason, adding more depth to withstand any lulls during a 40-game season.

The Aces are on their way to becoming a dynasty with a third consecutive crown in 2024.
