The WNBA season begins Friday, May 24, with the Westgate LV SuperBook pegging the Las Vegas Aces as 5-2 championship favorites, just ahead of the Washington Mystics and Los Angeles Sparks at 3-1.
The proven model developed by WNBA expert Jacob Gibbs says the Aces are a worthy favorite after their trade acquisition of MVP runner-up Liz Cambage. But he also likes a team with much higher odds to win it all, and he's isolated one massive long shot worth betting too. You'll want to see who he likes given the success he's had with his WNBA model.
Last season Gibbs -- a young DFS guru who relies on deep analytics and an encyclopaedic knowledge of personnel -- scored big in WNBA Daily Fantasy tournaments, returning 81.4 percent profit on his investments. He also cashed 61 percent of the time in cash games.
We can tell you he's down on the Los Angeles Sparks even though they're one of the top Vegas favorites to win the title.
"All things considered, the Sparks have the talent to put it all together," Gibbs told SportsLine. "Maybe new head coach Derek Fisher will be able to make it work, but at 3-1 WNBA championship odds, L.A. has too many question marks for me to feel safe recommending them."
Instead, Gibbs is all over a team with much longer odds to hoist the WNBA championship trophy. And he's also isolated a colossal long shot that could return any backer a monster payout.
