Best NBA Prop Bets Today May 25

New York Liberty vs. Connecticut Sun

  • Location: Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT

  • Time: 1 p.m. ET on Saturday, June 8

  • Coverage: ABC

Breanna Stewart, UNDER 21.5 Points (-104)

  • UNDER 9.5 Rebounds (+108)

Stewart is averaging 19.9 ppg this season but is coming off a strong game vs. the Dream on Thursday night (25 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists). But she’ll be facing the best defense in the WNBA in the Connecticut Suns, who are allowing just 69.3 ppg.

To hand the Sun their first loss of the season, the Liberty will need to spread the ball around more to keep Connecticut’s defense off balance. Since New York has several capable scorers, this will be easy to do. Consequently, Stewart will take fewer shots and score somewhere in the teens.

Stewart is a beast on the boards this season, with 10+ rebounds in seven of 11 games. But they will be harder to come by vs. the Sun. At +108, we see a lot of value in betting on the UNDER.

Alyssa Thomas, OVER 9.5 Rebounds (+104)

Thomas is one of the best all-around players in the WNBA, but her stat line doesn’t always feature numbers that will blow you away. She is averaging 9.3 rebounds per game this season with four games of 10+.

Against a tough team like the Liberty, it may be more likely that she pulls down fewer than her average; she had under ten in five of her last six games, including a seven-rebound game Tuesday vs. the Mystics. But look for her to step up her game against one of the best teams in the WNBA.

Sabrina Ionescu, UNDER 2.5 Made Three-Pointers (+110)

Ionescu is averaging 2.5 per game this season and had four made threes in three of her last five games, but she’ll be facing the stingiest three-point defense in the league (27.1%). Of the players averaging two made threes a game, only Caitlin Clark (29.7%) has a lower shot percentage than Ionescu (32.9%).

Atlanta Dream vs.  Chicago Sky

  • Location: Wintrust Arena in Chicago, IL

  • Time: 5 p.m. ET on Saturday, June 8

  • Coverage: NBA TV

Angel Reese, OVER 8.5 Rebounds (-114)

  • To Record 10+ Rebounds (+132)

Reese isn’t just a top-notch rebounder. She stands out among rookies with almost twice as many per game as the player with the second most (9.2 to 5.7 for Aaliyah Edwards). But Reese is also already one of the better rebounders in the league (No.7 with 9.2 per game). Her numbers are even more impressive because she’s averaging more offensive boards per game (5.1) than defensive (4.1).

She’s had 10+ in four of her last five games. The Dream are not strong rebounders and are unlikely to slow her down much (if at all).

Marina Mabrey, OVER 21.5 Pts + Reb (-118)

Mabrey is a solid scoring threat every night, capable of coming close to her season average (16 ppg), if not surpassing it on any given night. However, the occasional low-scoring game is not uncommon for her, i.e., vs. the Mystics Thursday night—10 points.

As for her rebounds, she averages 6.3 per game and has had at least six in six of nine games. But like with her scoring, she occasionally has an off night, e.g., vs. Mystics—3 rebound, vs. Storm—4 rebound.

She could go OVER her point (15.5) and rebound (5.5)totals, but we like her chances of combining for 21.5 between the two better.  

Tina Charles, OVER 8.5 Rebounds (-125)

  • To Record 10+ Rebounds (+124)

  • To Record a Double-Double (+200)

Atlanta’s last game, vs. the Liberty, is a good reason to take a pause on Charles and her rebound total. She had eight in that game but only played 19 minutes. There are no reports of an injury, nor was she in foul trouble, so her lack of playing time in that game is a mystery.

In every game in which she played at least 31 minutes, she pulled down double-digit rebounds; she’s averaging 29.3 minutes per game.

With how erratic her scoring had been this season (five games with 10+, three with less than ten), we are not confident Charles will record a double-double in this game (she’s had four this season), but we like the value at +200.
