Saturday's WNBA slate features a pair of potentially lucrative games for bettors, starting with the Connecticut Sun vs. Dallas Wings, followed by the New York Liberty vs. the Las Vegas Aces. The betting lines are intriguing, but bettors should also review the WNBA player props listed for both.

Let's take a look at some of our favorite WNBA player props for Saturday's double feature with odds from FanDuel Sportsbook:

Sun vs Sky Prediction

Connecticut Sun vs. Dallas Wings

  • Location: College Park Center, Arlington, TX

  • Time: 1 p.m. ET on Saturday, June 15

  • Coverage: CBS

  • Point Spread: Connecticut -6.5

Alyssa Thomas, OVER 12.5 Points at -102

  • UNDER 9.5 Rebounds at -102

Alyssa Thomas doesn't always do a lot of scoring. She isn't the No. 1 scoring threat (DeWanna Bonner, 18.4 ppg) or the No. 2 (Brionna Jones, 13.5 ppg). Thomas comes in a relatively close third with 12.8 ppg. However, Wednesday's 20-point night vs. Chicago was the first in June.

But she did so in five of seven games in May.

Thomas had 15 the last time the Sun faced the Wings and could easily hit that number again. As for her rebound numbers, she pulled nine last time vs. Dallas but has gone over 9.5 in three of five games in June (not including her last game vs. Chicago, where she had seven.

She could cut it close to her points total (Thomas had had less than ten in three of five games in June). But Dallas has one of the worst defenses in the league, so we like her chance of scoring more than  12.5 points.

As for her rebound total, she has been unreliable this season (as few as six but as many as 18), pulling down 10+ in six games and less than ten in six games. Dallas is a solid rebounding team and will make her work for every board she gets (eight or nine, but not ten).

DeWanna Bonner, UNDER 17.5 Points at -110

Bonner does lead the team in scoring with 18.4 ppg, but that number is a little skewed because of the four 20+ point games she had to start the season. She had 12 against Dallas on May 3. In the five games the Sun have played in June, she had UNDER 17.5 in three (her last three).

Bonner is an excellent player, but the Sun doesn't try to outscore opponents. They play suffocating defense and score enough to beat you (with the occasional blowout against lesser teams).

Arike Ogunbowale, UNDER 24.5 Points at -128

Ogunbowale is a prolific scorer who averages 26.8 ppg. She's had over 24.5 points in two of her last five games and in five all season. The Sun's No. 1 defense will force her to work for every point that she gets in a relatively low-scoring game.

They held her to 21 points in the last matchup and will probably do so again.

New York Liberty vs. Las Vegas Aces

  • Location: Michelob ULTRA Arena

  • Time: 3 p.m. ET on Saturday, June 15

  • Coverage: ABC

  • Point Spread: Las Vegas -2.5

A'ja Wilson, OVER 28.5 Points at -113

  • To Score 30+ Points at +120

  • OVER 40.5 Pts + Reb at -104

Wilson has been on a mission this season. No matter how the team is playing, she finds a way to score an average of 28.6 points a night—and it doesn't matter who the Aces play. However, she had UNDER 28.5 once this month and three times in May.

Last year in the Finals, the Liberty held to roughly 21.3 ppg. But with how she's played all season, there doesn't seem to be anyone who can stop her from getting to the basket.

Wilson is the league's leading scorer and rebounder, with 11.7 per game. She did not exceed that number once during the Aces' three-game losing streak but had 15 against Phoenix on Thursday.

She had 11+ in three of four games in last season's WNBA Finals and averaged 12.5 during the series. Expecting similar numbers in this game might be asking too much of her (but it might not be). Wilson will score 30+ in this game and pull down enough boards to go over the total.

Breanna Stewart, OVER 29.5 Pts + Reb at -106

  • OVER 9.5 Rebounds at -110

  • OVER 1.5 Threes at +154

  • OVER 19.5 Points at -114

If you look at some of Stewart's recent numbers (14 points and seven rebounds, 13 points and seven rebounds), the under would look like a good play for each market. But go back a couple more games, and the OVER is a little more encouraging (25 points and ten rebounds, 33 points and 14 rebounds).

Stewart is averaging 18.9 and 9.4 but has scored 20+ five times and pulled down 10+ rebounds seven times. So, she is capable of surpassing the needed benchmarks, and with how much the Aces have been struggling on defense lately, it shouldn't be too hard.

As for her threes, Stewart is not a great three-point shooter but averages 4.2 attempts per game. She has been cold in recent games (1-11 in her last three combined), but the Aces have struggled to defend the perimeter lately.

She has only had two in three games this season, but since it has plus-money odds, it may be worth the risk.
