2022 WNBA Title Staff Picks

Lucy Burdge: Connecticut Sun (+550 at BetMGM)
The Sun are an impressive 17-9 this season and they just defeated the Liberty, 82-63, so they’re on a roll right now. And they’re in second place in the Eastern Conference behind the Sky, only 2.5 games back, with an 11-5 conference record, a 9-4 home record and an 8-5 record on the road. Bria Hartley made her Sun debut in that win over the Liberty, so she could be a helpful addition to this team as they make a run for the championship.

Dan Karpuc: Seattle Storm (+400 at BetMGM)
In my opinion, there are four contenders to win the WNBA title right now: the Aces (+170), Sky (+225), Storm (+400) and Sun (+550). Not only would this be the perfect way for league legend Sue Bird to retire, but Breanna Stewart is an MVP candidate and leads the WNBA in scoring with 21.0 points per contest; starting center Ezi Magbegor leads the league in blocks per game with 2.4; and newly signed future Hall of Famer Tina Charles is coming off the bench. Meanwhile, Jewell Lloyd is also putting up 16.2 points per game as another source of production. At the time of this writing, the Storm have a 17-8 overall record, the third-best record in the league, and have gone 11-4 on their home floor. Not only that, but this team is surging right now. They’ve gone 8-2 over their last 10 games and, in that span, they’ve outscored their opponents by an average of 11.1 points per contest (best in the WNBA) and have had the best defense in the league (with an elite 89.7 Defensive Rating). Charles’ addition could end up being one of the most impactful in-season transactions in league history if this season concludes with a Storm championship.
