WNBA Prop Bets

Angel Reese Over 10.5 Rebounds (-128)

Angel Reese has been off to a red-hot start for the Chicago Sky and is climbing up the Rookie of the Year ranks. On Monday, her Rookie of the Year odds stood at +600. They have since shortened to +400.

This is in part due to Reese's record-breaking rookie eight-game double-double streak. FanDuel Sportsbook even has an Angel Reese WNBA Specials market available where you can wager on how long this streak will continue.

Tonight, she and the Sky will host the Las Vegas Aces, and I have faith that Reese can sail past 10.5 rebounds.

Reese is averaging 11.1 rebounds per night (second-most in the WNBA) and has cleared 10.5 rebounds in 8 of her last 11 games.

Although she wasn't always playing upwards of 30 minutes at the start of her rookie campaign, she has become the foundation of Chicago and is playing 33.1 minutes across her last seven games. Reese nets 0.37 rebounds per minute, so a 33-minute game would theoretically result in 12.2 rebounds at her average rate.

Las Vegas plays at the fastest pace in the league while Chicago plays at the fourth-fastest pace. We should see plenty of possessions in this back-and-forth game, and Reese notched 12 rebounds in her one contest against a team in the top three in pace.

It won't be easy to battle A'ja Wilson in the paint, but Reese has kept up with the best of them this season.

Stefanie Dolson Over 9.5 Points (-130)

The Washington Mystics are ravaged with injuries, though I don't think the market took that into fair enough account when setting Stefanie Dolson's points line for tonight.

Dolson is averaging 9.4 points and 25.7 minutes per game. However, Washington's Shakira Austin, Karlie Samuelson, and Brittney Sykes will all be sidelined while Aaliyah Edwards comes in with a questionable designation.

Dolson and Ariel Atkins are the only full-time starters that remain, so I'd expect them to shoulder the load of scoring duties in tonight's contest against the Connecticut Sun.

Dolson is averaging 11.0 points in nine games without Austin. In two games without both Austin and Edwards, Dolson netted 17.0 points (16- and 18-point performances).

Add Samuelson to the injury mix -- she averages 9.9 points and has yet to miss a game -- and we have every reason to believe that Dolson has a high shot volume potential in this one.

She's averaging 11.0 FGA across her last four games, a volume that indicates she could sail past 9.5 points tonight.

While a date with Connecticut is a brutally tough matchup as the Sun play at the slowest pace in the league and come in with the second-best defense, the sheer scoring opportunity is enough to make me back Dolson.

Nneka Ogwumike Over 17.5 Points (-115)

Thursday's WNBA slate will be capped off with a matchup between the Indiana Fever and Seattle Storm.

Nneka Ogwumike is averaging 17.7 points for Seattle, so let's look for her to take advantage of a friendly matchup against Indiana.

The Fever let up an eye-popping 87.9 points per game (most) and have the worst defensive rating and net rating in the W.

Ogwumike has played six games against teams that fare in the bottom half of net rating. In this split, she is averaging 19.3 points and netted at least 17 points in all but one game.

In 2023, Ogwumike averaged 19.7 points and cleared 17.5 points in 69.5% of games against teams that ranked in the bottom half of net rating.

She historically beats up on inferior opponents and has shot below average from the field in six of her last seven games, so positive shooting regression could be coming Ogwumike's way, too.
