The Las Vegas Aces enter the 2024 WNBA season as favorites to win their third consecutive WNBA Championship.

But with a loaded draft class entering the league and two stars signing contract extensions with last season's runners up, the Aces will have even more competition than usual.

Las Vegas Aces +110

The Las Vegas Aces lost just seven games combined in the 2023 regular season and playoffs. This team led the WNBA in the following per-game stats: points (92.8), blocks (4.8), free throw percentage (84.0), and field goal percentage (48.6).

The Aces roster is simply loaded. In 2023, two-time league MVP A'ja Wilson led the team in points (22.8), blocks (2.2) and rebounds (9.5). Chelsea Gray led the team with 7.3 assists per game, and Kelsey Plum (4.5) Jackie Young (3.8) and Candace Parker (3.7) all averaged more than three assists per game.

Young and Gray both shot over 40 percent from three-point range on over 3.5 attempts per game each, and five players averaged more than one steal per game. This offseason, they added Brea Beal, a guard from South Carolina's championship-winning team in 2022.

New York Liberty +250

Led by Sabrina Ionescu and Breanna Stewart, the New York Liberty lost in the WNBA Finals to the Aces and will be looking to go a step further and win the first title in franchise history this season. Stewart signed a new contract in the offseason and the team has kept its roster from last year intact.

The Liberty led the WNBA in three-point percentage at 37.4 percent last season, driven by Ionescu's 44.8 three-point percentage. They also led the league in assists with 24.1 per game and in defensive field goal percentage, allowing opponents to shoot just 42.4 percent from the floor.

Stewart and Ionescu led the team with 23 and 17 points per game respectively, but the rest of the starting lineup - Betnijah Laney, Jonquel Jones, and Courtney Vandersloot - all averaged more than 10 points per game. This is a well-rounded, experienced team that will be tough to stop.

Seattle Storm +1000

The Seattle Storm went just 11-29 last season and finished fifth out of six Western Conference teams. This season, the team returns much of its core but does not have a first-round draft pick, yet it has a high-potential roster that can improve this season.

Jewell Lloyd is the star, as she averaged 24.7 points per game last season, but she shot just 37.1 percent from the field. Coach Noelle Quinn will need to settle on a consistent starting five since only two players - Lloyd and Ezi Magbegor - started more than 20 games in 2023.

Part of that was due to injuries, and having Gabby Williams healthy after playing just 10 games in 2023 will be a big help defensively. The Storm finished last season in the top-half of the league in key stats including three-point percentage, blocks, and rebounding, so there's a foundation for the team to build upon.

Connecticut Sun +1100

Alyssa Thomas, a four-time All-Star and a prototypical hustle player, is the foundation of this team. In 2023, she finished second in MVP voting and led the league in total assists, total rebounds and rebounds per game while averaging 15.5 points, 9.9 rebounds and 7.9 assists.

Two players averaged more points than Thomas, with DeWanna Bonner scoring 17.4 per night and Brionna Jones averaging 15.9 points. Plus, this team averaged the fourth-most points per game (82.7) while allowing the fewest (79.0), and it ranked in the top three in field goal percentage, free throw attempts, assists per game, steals per game, and fewest turnovers per game.

Connecticut has serious home-court advantage, as opposing players often talk about how hard it is to travel to their arena at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut. They also have the 10th pick in the draft, which gives them a shot at collegiate standouts like Alissa Pili, Nika Muhl or even Angel Reese.

Indiana Fever +2000

The Indiana Fever selected Iowa superstar guard Caitlin Clark with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2024 draft. But the Fever are much more than a player who hasn't played a minute of professional basketball yet.

The Fever are a young team, and they had the top pick in the 2023 draft which they used on former South Carolina standout Aliyah Boston. Boston was third on the team in scoring (14.5 points per game), second in rebounds with 8.4, and first in steals and blocks with 1.3 of each per game.

Kelsey Mitchell, one of the team's more experienced players at 27 years old, led the team with 18.2 ppg and will be Clark's partner and mentor in the backcourt. NaLyssa Smith, the team's second-leading scorer with 15.5 points in 2023, completes a young frontcourt partnership with Boston.
