The History of WNBA
As we mentioned above, WNBA wasn’t created until 1996 and the first official league started on June 1997. Even though there was a women’s league before the WNBA, it wasn’t nearly as popular. The reason why WNBA and WNBA odds are more popular than any other women’s sport is because the league had the backing of the NBA.
It all started with an advertisement that was called “We Got Next” and it ran every year before the start of the league. With time it was replaced with a different campaign, known as “We Got Game”. At the beginning, Houston had the dominant WNBA team. The Houston Comets won the first four Championships and the WNBA odds were overlooked by bettors. Read more about WNBA on their official site.
However, with the rise of popularity more teams entered the fold and the existing ones became more competitive. Right now 12 teams are part of it and the Seattle Storm is the strongest squad. With the league start perfectly aligned with the end of the NBA league, WNBA odds and line will be among the most popular ones for tons of sports bettors.
The league has 12 teams separated into 2 divisions. Since 2016, each team plays 4 times against one side in their division. Against the other 4 teams, they play only 3 games. With the teams in the other division, they always play 3 games. At the end of the regular season, 8 teams that have the best records, regardless of the division, get to participate in the play-offs. Just like with the NBA, the WNBA odds for said playoffs are very popular with bettors. The semi-finals and finals of the series are played in a best-of-five-format.
When it comes to WNBA betting and odds, the most popular bet type is match result betting. commonly known as 1X2. Additionally, a good option is handicap betting (including OT) as you can see on the example below.
Moneyline WNBA Betting Odds
Similar to 1X2 betting, moneyline bets are actually better suited for basketball games. It removes the draw option so you would essentially bet on a victory for a certain team. You can win even if the game ends with a draw in regular time. The moneyline WNBA odds are a bit lower than 1X2 because you can still win the bet in overtime.
