WNBA fans may want an early start putting their bets in for Friday's slate. With three games tipping off at 7:30 p.m. ET, it may be wise to start early to ensure you don't miss out on a market you want to bet on—like one of the many WNBA player props bettors can find listed at FanDuel.

However, as of Thursday night, FanDuel does not have player props posted for Washington vs. New York and Phoenix vs. Minnesota. So, let's take a look at some of our favorite WNBA player props from Las Vegas vs. Atlanta and Dallas vs. Connecticut. Odds are from FanDuel Sportsbook where new users can get $150 in bonus bets with their initial winning wager.

Best WNBA Prop Bets 2024 05 31

Las Vegas Aces vs. Atlanta Dream

  • Location: Gateway Center in Atlanta, GA

  • Time: 7:30 p.m. ET on Friday, May 31

  • Coverage: Ion

A’ja Wilson OVER 37.5 Pts + Reb at -108 via FanDuel

  • To Record a Double Double at -390

  • OVER 25.5 Pts at -108

  • OVER 11.5 Rebounds at -136

If you are wondering why A'ja Wilson is such a heavy favorite to win MVP, look at the total for her player props: 25.5 points, 11.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists. Okay, her assists total is nothing special, but her points and rebounds total are. Why? Because they are conservative.

Wilson has had 13+ rebounds in four of five games (had 10 in the other) and 26+ points in three games. No one is producing the kind of stats she's putting up.

Atlanta, well—there is nothing unique about the Dream. They are around the middle of the pack in just about every significant statistical category. They are not good enough to slow Wilson down, so fans and bettors can expect another big night.

The odds for "To record a Double Double" would typically not be recommended due to a lack of value, but Wilson has recorded a double-double in every game this season, 22 in 40 games last season, and 17 in 36 games in 2022. It would be shocking if she were not to record one against a mediocre team like Atlanta.

Jackie Young, OVER 28.5 Pts + Ast at -104 via FanDuel

  • To Record a Double Double at +260

  • 3+ Made Threes at +140

Young has scored at least 19 points in every game this season; otherwise, she has scored 22 or 23. If she matches her season low (19), she'll record a double-double since she'll need ten assists (which she has recorded twice).

But Young is more likely to score 22-25 points, which means she'll need 4-7 assists to go OVER the total for the above combo.

As for her three-pointer prop, she has had three in her last two games and four in another. She also had two in one game and zero in another. Atlanta has a decent three-point defense, but we still like her to hit at least three.

Dallas Wings vs. Connecticut Sun

  • Location: Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT

  • Time: 7:30 p.m. ET on Friday, May 31

  • Coverage: Ion

Arike Ogunbowale, UNDER 28.5 Pts + Ast at+100 via FanDuel

She is the league's leading scorer with 28.8 ppg, so, in theory, she could exceed this number on the scoreboard alone; her 3-7 rebounds could not be needed. But she'll be facing the No. 1 defense in the league, the Suns. Connecticut has also allowed opponents to the second-lowest assists total in the league (18.5 per game).

Connecticut will keep her point total in the mid-to-low 20s. Her assists totals will not make up the difference.

Alyssa Thomas, To Record a Triple Double at +420 via FanDuel

Thomas is a rare player who can reliably contribute points, rebounds, and assists on any given night. While she only has one triple-double on the year, she has come close. With a chance to extend the team's win streak to seven games, Thomas will bring her "A+" game.  

However, it is worth noting that she only has nine career triple-doubles. This market may be a good one to use as a bonus bet if you happen to have a burning hole in your pocket making.

DeWanna Bonner, OVER 19.5 Points at -113 via FanDuel

Alyssa Thomas may be the superstar and MVP candidate for the Sun, but Bonner is the leading scorer. She scored just 19 in her last two games but has otherwise put up 20+ in every game. With a defense like the Sun giving her the ball back early and often, Bonner will see the ball enough to score 20+ points against a suspect Dallas defense.

Sevgi Uzun, UNDER 15.5 Pts + Reb + Ast at -110 via FanDuel

Uzun is having a solid season and playing about 30 minutes a night. But the young rookie just isn't generating a ton of stats.  She went OVER the TOTAL in two of her five games, including her last vs. the Sparks, where she scored 11 points, pulled down five rebounds, and dished out eight assists.

Factor in Connecticut's stout defense, and it's more likely that her numbers will take a dive compared to her last start.
