WNBA Prop Bets

Rhyne Howard Over 14.5 Points (+100)

The Washington Mystics (0-12) will visit the Atlanta Dream (5-4) this evening, and I'm intrigued by where we are finding Rhyne Howard's points prop.

Howard is averaging 15.2 points per game and has scored over 14.5 points in five out of nine contests. However, she's run into some shooting trouble as of late, going 3-for-24 from behind the arc across her last five games.

Last season, Howard shot threes at a 35.2% clip and averaged a team-leading 2.5 three-point makes (3PM), so we know she's capable of getting it done from long range.

A matchup against Washington could invite some positive regression as they surrender the third-most three-point attempts (3PA) per game. The Mystics also come in with the second-worst defense and fourth-highest pace, so this is a great scoring matchup overall.

In 2023, Howard scored at least 15 points in 74.4% of games (29 out of 39 contests). Her sizable role on Atlanta has not changed and, if anything, we should see the third-year player and former No. 1 overall draft pick make improvements this season.

With a friendly matchup and friendly odds available, I'm happy to back Howard in this spot.

Jackie Young Under 18.5 Points (-118)

Jackie Young (18.3 points per game) got off to a red-hot start for the Las Vegas Aces (5-4) but could run into some scoring trouble tonight.

Late last week, Young missed team shootaround for two straight games due to an illness but ended up playing in both games. She went on to sit out of Sunday’s contest due to illness but is expected to be back in the lineup tonight.

We’re still fairly early into the season, so conditioning might not be totally up to snuff for a lot of these players. When we factor in Young’s illness and time away from the game, she might not be the best scoring version of herself tonight.

But, even if we choose not to read into Young’s status, this matchup against the Minnesota Lynx (8-3) will not be an easy one. Minnesota comes in with the second-best defense and has been playing at the second-slowest pace.

They’re surrendering the fewest points per game to opposing guards as well as the fewest 3PA while Young relies on threes to net 32.9% of her points.

We know A'ja Wilson (28.3 points) and Kelsey Plum (19.3) can carry this team on the scoring end, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see Young take a bit of a backseat in this one. Last year, she scored under 18.5 points in 62.5% of games.

Dearica Hamby Over 10.5 Rebounds (-136)

Dearica Hamby’s play for the Los Angeles Sparks (4-7) has made her a clear frontrunner for this year’s Most Improved Player award.

She’s averaging 20.4 points and 11.5 rebounds (second-most in the WNBA) through 11 games and could make good on her rebounding prop tonight.

Hamby has secured over 10.5 rebounds in 7 out of 11 games, missing by the hook on two occasions. With an intriguing matchup inbound, I'm willing to back the trend.

The Sparks will take on the Seattle Storm (7-4), a team that is playing at the second-fastest pace. We should see a lot of possessions in this one, which will create ample rebound chances for Hamby.

We’ve seen Hamby play in five contests against teams that rank in the top five of pace. She grabbed at least 12 rebounds in three of those games with both of the misses coming against Las Vegas, the best rebounding team in the league.

Hamby is averaging 36.2 minutes per game (third-most in the WNBA). That long leash is noteworthy considering she nets 0.32 rebounds per minute.
