The Las Vegas Aces buffed up their 2019 WNBA Championship odds after acquiring Liz Cambage — who joins a starting five that features back-to-back-to-back No. 1 draft picks — rising all the way to +280 at FanDuel Sportsbook as of Friday.

It’s worth noting that the Mercury’s odds have moved significantly over the past week: They were 10-1 to win the title as recently as this past Friday at Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.
Phoenix enters the season with a few big question marks, namely the health of Diana Taurasi, who is currently four weeks into an expected 10-12 week timetable following back surgery.
