The Seattle Storm will look very different when they enter the 2023 WNBA season. The leaders of their 2018 and 2020 championship teams have moved on and they have third-longest title odds at +5000 ahead of the season, according to FanDuel sportsbook.

Here’s a look at their notable moves in the offseason and analysis on how to approach betting the Storm before the WNBA season tips off.

Notable Offseason Transactions

Additions: Kia Nurse, Sami Whitcomb, Jordan Horston (No. 9 pick), Madi Williams (No. 18 pick), Dulcy Fankam-Mendjiadeu (No. 21 pick), Jade Loville (No. 33 pick)

Departures: Sue Bird, Breanna Stewart

Betting Analysis

It’s a new era in Seattle, as the Storm and their loyal fans bid adieu to Sue Bird and Breanna Stewart and look to begin anew with Jewell Lloyd at the helm. Lloyd is set up to carry a massive load offensively, and that’s one again that I’ll be looking to bet. Lloyd has a decent look to even lead the league in scoring should the books list the bet as an option. Even if not, on a game-to-game basis, I’ll be looking towards her single-game points props at the start of the season.

Kia Nurse is another one who will likely have to pick up the scoring load on a team that has plenty of defensive talent but will struggle to score the ball. That inability to score the ball is going to make winning hard for the Storm (and it’s going to make for some good potential under spots as well).

I have the Storm as the third-worst team in the league with their roster as is, and I project them for a final record of 14-26 (slightly above their 14.5 win total at FanDuel). The Storm are a perfect example of just how deep and talented this league is. They have a really solid core of Lloyd-Gabby Williams-Ezi Magbegor, but in a league where every team has talent someone has to lose, and that’s going to be the Storm more often than not this season.
