WNBA power rankings: Week 3

WNBA power rankings: Week 3

1. Las Vegas Aces (7-1), +275 (bet $100 to win $275)

Best team in the league and I’m not sure it’s close right now. Jackie Young for MVP, anyone?

2. Chicago Sky (3-2) +600 (bet $100 to win $600)

Kahleah Copper’s back, Candace Parker’s triple-doubling. Life is good. They’ll compete for a top spot in these rankings soon enough.

3. Connecticut Sun (4-1) +450 (bet $100 to win $450)

The best team in terms of net ratings just five games in, and Jonquel Jones hasn’t even really gotten going yet. Their early schedule has been weak so far, though.

4. Washington Mystics (5-2) +1000 (bet $100 to win $1,000)

Finally, a fully healthy lineup! The Mystics are great, but they dropped this week because Chicago kicked them pretty good.

5. Seattle Storm (3-3) +500 (bet $100 to win $500)

They’re 3-1 when Breanna Stewart plays. Sorry to the Dream and Wings, whose superior records I’m wildly skeptical of.

6. Atlanta Dream (4-2) +8000 (bet $100 to win $8,000)

I’m having fun! Are you having fun?

7. Dallas Wings (4-2) +4500 (bet $100 to win $4,500)

Hey, they look great! Double-digit wins over the Liberty, Mercury and Lynx can’t be overlooked, plus an upset over the Mystics (when Delle Donne played).

8. Phoenix Mercury (2-4) +600 (bet $100 to win $600)

A Skylar Diggins-Smith vs. Diana Taurasi squabble and back-to-back-to-back double-digit Ls. I’m worried.

9. Los Angeles Sparks (2-5) +2000 (bet $100 to win $2,000)

Five straight Ls and one of them to a team who hasn’t beaten anyone else yet in seven tries.

10. Indiana Fever (2-6) +10000 (bet $100 to win $10,000)

Bad but in a fun way, still!

11. Minnesota Lynx (1-6) +1500 (bet $100 to win $1,500)

Getting worried! At least they played the Aces close? Tonight’s Liberty game is going to leave one fanbase feeling Bad!

12. New York Liberty (1-4) +2500 (bet $100 to win $2,500)

Yikes! Two losses of 27 points or more to the good teams PLUS a two-possession loss to the Fever. It’s hard to watch right now.
