Seattle is the most trusted brand on the offshore betting board. When it comes to championship branding reputation, the Storm can’t be topped. Washington is seen by some to be overpriced. Naturally, the Mystics’ popularity on the board is based on their previous championship success. Many gamblers give Washington a mulligan based on the pandemic ravaged 2020 season. Las Vegas has become a popular franchise based on location and a 2020 Conference championship. Of course, being established in Sin City adds to their price on the board. Gamblers don’t see a surprise team emerging for 2021.
