WNBA Semifinals Begin Sunday, September 24

Spread the Word:

The last of the four semifinalists for the WNBA title has advanced, with the Connecticut Sun beating the Minnesota Lynx on the road Wednesday night, 90-75. This is the fifth consecutive season that the Sun have made it to the semifinals, which is tied for the longest active streak in the league with the Las Vegas Aces.

It has been a banner year for the WNBA, with its highest television ratings in 21 years and its largest average in-game attendance since 2018. With an expanded 40-game schedule, total attendance was its highest in 13 years. 

The WNBA has also seen a surge in betting popularity. The number of wagers on the WNBA is up 114% from last year, and the total handle is up 47% from 2022.

So it is befitting that one of the most-watched-and-wagered seasons in the history of the WNBA will have semifinals that feature each of the top four seeds.

No. 3 Connecticut Sun at No. 2 New York Liberty

  • Connecticut Sun (+1300)
  • New York Liberty (+155)

On its road to a fifth straight WNBA semifinals, the Sun have beaten every team in the league this season except one: the New York Liberty.

If the Sun are to win that elusive first title, they will have to beat the Liberty at least three times in this best-of-five series, and at least once at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, which was sold out for the Liberty’s playoff win over the Washington Mystics.

The Liberty were a perfect 4-0 against the Sun this regular season, with the most recent win coming on September 1 by 31 points. However, the game before that the Sun kept it to within five points.

After Game 1 on Sunday, Game 2 follows on Tuesday in Brooklyn, and Game 3 will be played on Friday, September 29, at Mohegan Sun Arena, 134 miles away in Connecticut.

BetUS.com has the Liberty as 6.5-point favorites to win Game 1.

No. 4 Dallas Wings at No. 1 Las Vegas Aces

  • Dallas Wings (+3100)
  • Las Vegas Aces (-158)

In a past life, when the Las Vegas Aces were located in San Antonio and the Dallas Wings were playing in Detroit, these teams met in the WNBA Finals. But that was in 2008, and the teams haven’t met in the postseason since they found their most recent homes.

The Aces are the heavy favorites as the defending WNBA champions and as the team with a 34-6 record this season, the best in the league. Although one of those six losses did come against Dallas back in July, 80-75. However, Las Vegas won the other three meetings this season, 89-82, 104-91, and 104-84.

The Aces were the highest-scoring team in the WNBA this season, averaging 92.8 points per game. The Wings were the third-highest scoring team in 2023, averaging 87.9 points per game.

Game 1 is Sunday afternoon at the Michelob ULTRA Arena at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. Game 2 is scheduled for Tuesday night, and for Game 3 on Friday, September 29, the series shifts to College Park Center in Arlington, Texas.

BetUS.com has the Aces as 10-point favorites to win Game 1.
