Best WNBA Prop Bets 2024 05 21

Dallas Wings vs. Atlanta Dream

Arike Ogunbowale, OVER 24.5 Points (-115 at DraftKings)

Ogunbowale is off to a strong start this season with 25 and 35 points in her first two games, both versus a solid Chicago Sky defense. The Wings leaned on her hard in their second game vs. Chicago last week, the first without Natasha Howard. She attempted nearly half of the Wings' shots (28 of 66).

Dallas may try to have a more balanced attack, but their best player will eventually get the ball in her hands. She'll see the ball enough to score more than 24.5 points.

Rhyne Howard, OVER 2.5 Three Pointers (-120 at DraftKings)

Howard is a solid three-point shooter, making around 35% in her two full seasons. She's been consistent, making 2.5 on average in both seasons while attempting 7.3 and 7.2 shots, respectively. So far this season, she is 8-16, going 3-7 in one game and 5-9 in the other. 

The Dallas Wings had one of the worst three-point defenses last year (teams made 36%; tenth in the league).

Phoenix Mercury vs. Las Vegas Aces

A’ja Wilson, OVER 36.5 Pts + Reb + Ast (-115 at DraftKings)

Wilson crushed this total in the first game vs. the Mercury, needing just her point and rebound totals (30 and 13). As icing on the cake, she also chipped in five assists. But in her second game, she narrowly missed going over the total (34). 

The Mercury have shown that they are good enough to compete with (not beat) the Aces. Consequently, Vegas will undoubtedly keep its best players on the court as much as possible.

Diana Taurasi, OVER 16.5 Points (+105 at DraftKings)

The key to Taurasi going OVER 16.5 points will be whether or not she can get her three-point shot to start falling sooner rather than later. If she does, Taurasi will cruise past 16.5 points, much like she did against the Aces, where she went 7-11 from three-point range. 

If she doesn't, i.e., her 1-8 performance vs. Atlanta, she may still clear 16.5 points, but it's less certain. It will help that Las Vegas will be more concerned with slowing down Kahleah Copper after watching her go off for 38 points in her last game.

Washington Mystics vs. Los Angeles Sparks

Cameron Brink, UNDER 19.5 Pts. + Reb + Ast (-110 at DraftKings)

While she was a stat monster for Stanford last season, averaging 17.4 ppg and 11.9 rebounds, Cameron Brink has yet to find that kind of success with the Sparks. She had just 11 points, two rebounds, and four assists in her first game and three points and eight rebounds in her second.

She would probably be more productive if she played more; her game time has been limited (20 and 25 minutes).

Ariel Atkins, UNDER 16.5 Points (-120 at DraftKings)

With the departure of several players during the offseason, Atkins has become the top-scoring threat on the roster. She led the team in scoring when it played New York (20 points) and Seattle (19 points), but Connecticut held her to eight points as she struggled with her shot that day (3-12 from the floor; 0-5 from three-point range).

Neither team is known for its offensive or defensive prowess. With the total set at 159, there is a good chance no one will score much in this game.
