The Phoenix Mercury are favored to win the WNBA championship.

Phoenix Mercury Present Promising Odds To Win WNBA Title

With the 2021 WNBA regular season coming to a close, the Phoenix Mercury currently have the fifth-best record in the league, making them a viable option for sports betting in Arizona.

The Arizona sports betting apps are offering significant value on the Mercury, who have a record of 12-10 this season and are currently on a three-game win streak.

Three sportsbooks have ranked the Mercury as the seventh most likely team to win the 2021 WNBA Title.

The odds for the same event are +2500 at FanDuel Arizona Sportsbook, +1800 at BetMGM Arizona, and +2000 at PointsBet Sportsbook Arizona.

Additionally, an important aspect to think about when investing in the Mercury is the recent performance of two-time WNBA MVP winner Diana Taurasi. After returning from a sternum fracture that caused her to miss 12 games, Taurasi has been averaging 15.5 points, 4.5 assists, and 4.4 rebounds per game.

The Mercury appear to have regained their rhythm, as Taurasi, Griner, and Diggins-Smith are effectively collaborating within coach Brondello’s offensive strategy.

Griner leads the Mercury in scoring and rebounding, averaging 20.8 points and 9.7 rebounds per game. Diggins-Smith is also a key player, contributing 18.2 points and five assists per game.

An Examination of the Upcoming Schedule

The Mercury have a favorable schedule for the rest of the regular season, with only three out of their remaining nine games against teams with winning records. This provides them with a strong opportunity to climb in the league standings before the end of the year.

Phoenix is currently behind the Las Vegas Aces by 4.5 games in the Western Conference of the league. The Aces hold the top spot with a record of 17-6.

On September 19th, the Mercury’s regular season will conclude with a competition between the two teams at the Footprint Center in downtown Phoenix.

Before that, Taurasi and her teammates will play against the Atlanta Dream and New York Liberty twice, in addition to matches against the Chicago Sky and Indiana Fever.

The Mercury will only play against two teams with winning records for the rest of the season: the Connecticut Sun (17-6) and Seattle Storm (16-7).

Given Phoenix’s favorable regular season schedule, their chances of winning the championship appear to be high, making it a wise choice for bettors to place their wagers on them at this time.

WNBA Championship Odds

The Aces, Storm, Sun, Minnesota Lynx, Sky, and Washington Mystics are all ranked ahead of Phoenix in terms of betting odds.

The Mercury are aiming for their fourth WNBA championship as they take on the Dream in Atlanta at 9 a.m. Arizona time (noon Eastern). They have upcoming matches against the Liberty next week on Wednesday and Friday.

The 2021 WNBA Playoffs, which will include eight teams, are set to commence on September 23rd.
