The WNBA has a nice five-game slate for today, featuring many of the league's best teams and players.  Bettors can find betting lines for every game and a healthy menu of WNBA player props posted at sportsbooks like DraftKings and FanDuel.

Let's take a look at some of our favorite WNBA player props from Saturday's five-game slate (odds via FanDuel Sportsbook).

Bet on WNBA Player Props at FanDuel

Best NBA Prop Bets Today May 25

New York Liberty vs. Minnesota Lynx Prop Bets

  • Location: Target Center in Minneapolis, MN

  • Time: 1 p.m. ET on Saturday, May 25

  • Network: CBS

Breanna Stewart, UNDER 33.5 Pts + Reb +Ast at -108

Stewart is one of the biggest stars in the WNBA and capable of producing a massive stat line on any given night. But, through the first five games of the season, she has gone for over 33.5 points, rebounds, and assists just once (45) against a dreadful Indiana defense.

She has come close to 33.5 in other games. However, the Minnesota defense is not bad, and Stewart will not be the only star on the Liberty taking shots (Sabrina Ionescu, Jonquel Jones). She'll probably come close in this one, but don't bank on her going OVER.

Alanna Smith, OVER 12.5 Points -114

Smith failed to go for more than 12.5 points in one of her three games this season; she only had ten in Thursday's loss to the Sun. But had she played more than 23 minutes (36 and 43 minutes (2OT) in Minnesota's first two games), it is not hard to imagine her hitting a three-pointer or a pair of layups.

With Diamond Miller nursing a knee injury, it would not be shocking to see her get 30 minutes a game. If she can get that much time on the court, she'll go over 12.5 points.

To Record a Double-Double: Napheesa Collier +115

Collier is averaging a double-double this season with 26.7 points and 10.7 rebounds a game. She has recorded a double-double in two of her three games but fell a rebound short in the other. The Liberty will be the most formidable defense she has faced this season, but she'll score 10+ points and probably be good for 10+ rebounds.

Connecticut Sun vs. Chicago Sky Prop Bets

  • Location: Wintrust Arena in Chicago, IL

  • Time: 8 p.m. ET on Saturday, May 25

  • Network: CBSSN

Alyssa Thomas, OVER 25.5 Pts + Reb  at -122

  • To record a double-double at -190

  • To record a triple-double at +550

 Thomas is a force that can't be ignored or overlooked. The 32-year-old forward is making a solid case to be in MVP discussions by nearly averaging a triple-double (17 points, 10.5 rebounds, and 8.3 assists). Thursday's game against Minnesota was her first of the season without a double-double, but she still recorded 18 points and seven rebounds.

She had 10, 11, and 14 rebounds in her other three games. Chicago ranks last in opponent's rebounds, allowing 39 per game.  Thomas will be good for at least 15 points and could pull down 15 rebounds. 

Thomas recorded her 12th career triple-double in the season opener vs. Indiana and fell a rebound short in the second game vs. the Fever. Triple-doubles are uncommon in the WNBA, but Thomas is a threat to record one whenever she steps on the court. This prop certainly has value.

To Record a Double-Double

  • Angel Reese at +320

  • Marina Mabrey at +550

Neither player has recorded a double-double this season. But Reese has been two rebounds short once and one rebound short twice. She has been playing better and more assertively as her confidence grows. She'll get her first any day now, if not today.

Mabrey fell a rebound short in the season opener and nearly recorded a triple-double in the second game (14 points, eight rebounds, eight assists). 

The odds are long for both players, who are playing a tough defense in Connecticut. But both still have value.

Indiana Fever vs. Las Vegas Aces Prop Bets

  • Location: Michelob Ultra Arena in Las Vegas, NV

  • Time: 9 p.m. ET on Saturday, May 25

  • Network: NBA TV

Caitlin Clark, OVER 3.5 Made Three-Pointers at -106

It has been a struggle for Clark so far in the WNBA, but the talent is there. She went over 3.5 made three-pointers in two of her first five games. But teams are hitting 43.4% from behind the arc against the Aces. If she doesn't hit at least four in this game, it is hard to say when she will.

A'ja Wilson, OVER 24.5 Points at -104

  • To Record a Double-Double at -190

Wilson has gone for more than 24.5 points in one of her three games this season, but against the only team in the league giving up 90+ ppg, she should do it again. She has recorded a double-double in all three games the Aces have played. There is no reason to think she will not do it again.

Washington Mystics vs. Seattle Storm Prop Bets

  • Location: Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle, WA

  • Time: 9 p.m. ET on Saturday, May 25

  • Network: MSN

Jewell Loyd, OVER 21.5 Points at -104

  • To Record a Double-Double at +1200

Last year's scoring champ is not even averaging 20 ppg this season, but that is because of a ten-point game in the season opener (where she recorded a double-double) and a 13-point game against a very tough Liberty defense. Otherwise, she's scored 20, 24, and in her last game—32. 

She's had two double-doubles this season and was one rebound away from getting a third. Her odds are probably this long because Loyd is not known for recording double-doubles. But with how she is playing this season and against a poor Mystics team, this market has immense value.

Nneka Ogwumike, OVER 26.5 Pts + Reb at -108

Ogwumike is averaging 22.7 points and 9.7 rebounds per game this season (through three games). Washington is a surprisingly tough defense for a winless team, but not so much that they'll contain Ogwumike.

Dallas Wings vs. Phoenix Mercury Prop Bets

  • Location: Footprint Center in Phoenix, AZ

  • Time: 10 p.m. ET on Saturday, May 25

  • Network: WNBA League Pass, FUBO TV

Kahleah Copper, UNDER Pts + Reb at -128

When a player has two 30+ point games under their belt this early in the season, it may seem like the OVER would be the right bet here. But she scored 19 and 20 in her other two games and has recorded 4-6 rebounds in each game. 

Dallas has one of the better defenses in the league to date. The Wings have allowed just one player to record over 20 points (and she just had 21). Cooper could have a 20-point game against Dallas, but she will not pull down enough boards to make up the difference.
