Best WNBA Prop Bets 2024 06 18

Los Angeles Sparks vs. Connecticut Sun

  • Location: Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut

  • Game Time & Date: 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday, June 18

  • Coverage: NBA TV

  • Point Spread: Sun -12.5 at -114

Cameron Brink, UNDER 14.5 Pts + Reb (-136 via FanDuel)

Brink is averaging eight points a game and just under six rebounds, but she has shown she is quite capable of scoring spurts and pulling down double-digit boards. However, for a team with a defense as strong as Connecticut’s, it is unlikely a suspect scorer like Brink has a big day. She’ll probably have just the opposite.

As for her rebounding, Brink has had 6+ in four of her last six games but in just one of her last three. Both teams are decent rebounders, but if Brink will have to battle Sun forward Alyssa Thomas for boards, our money is on Thomas.

Dearica Hamby, OVER 10.5 Rebounds (+104 via FanDuel)

  • UNDER 27.5 Pts + Rebounds at -114

  • UNDER 17.5 Points at -130

It would be easy to make a case against Hamby pulling down 11 or more boards, but she has proven she can go for 11+ a night regardless of the competition. She’s done so against good rebounding teams like Seattle, Dallas, and Chicago and the not-so-good like Minnesota, Indiana, and Washington.

But the plus-money odds make this an advisable bet, giving the wager value. Taking the UNDER at -152 just isn’t worth it.

However, while we can see her pulling down 11 rebounds, we are not confident she’ll score enough to go OVER the total for Pts + Reb. She’s had 16, 16, and 10 during the current road trip. While she had Monday night off to rest, it may be wise not to count on her to score much against Connecticut’s defense.

Alyssa Thomas, UNDER 13.5 Points (-115 via FanDuel)

Thomas can score over 13.5 points against a lackluster defensive team like the Sparks have, but she is not the Sun's primary scoring threat. She’s scored 13.5+ just once in June and in four of 13 games this season.

As for her rebounding, Thomas averages ten per game but has gone OVER 10.5 in five of 13 games. However, after two relatively slow nights against the Sky (seven) and Wings (nine), she’s overdue for a nice night on the boards.

New York Liberty vs. Phoenix Mercury

  • Location: Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona

  • Game Time & Date: 10 p.m. ET on Tuesday, June 18

  • Coverage: CBSSN

  • Point Spread: -6 Liberty at -112

Breanna Stewart, UNDER 28.5 Pts + Reb (-106 via FanDuel)

Stewart is Liberty’s scoring leader with 18.6 ppg, but she hasn’t been the leading scorer in the last three games and has only done so three times in New York’s last ten games. This tells us that she is not the primary scoring threat/option on the floor.

She has had a couple of big games this month (25 points vs. Atlanta and 33 vs. Chicago), but she has scored 14 points or less in the team’s other four games this month.

When it comes to rebounding, Stewart is averaging 9.6 per game. However, it is hard to count on her to pull down 10+. She has had 10+ in three of six games this month but had seven, seven, and six in the other three. It would not be shocking to see her pull down ten boards in this game, but she will not make up the difference for the Pts + Reb combo.

Jonquel Jones, OVER 15.5 Points (-125 via FanDuel)

It’s a little surprising to see Jones have such a low-point total. She’s averaging more than that per game (16.8 ppg). Yes, she had five points in one game this month and just ten in another, but she has scored 34, 29, and 22 in her last three.

She has the hot hand right now for the Liberty, and there is no reason to think the Mercury will slow her down so much she fails to score more than 15 points. There is always a chance she doesn’t get enough shots since the Liberty are not short on capable shooters. But we think she’ll score 20.

Jones had eight rebounds in her last four games and averaged 8.7 per. However, she has had as many as 13 several times and as few as four. So, it is hard to have faith in her pulling down a significant number. But if we are right about her point total, she’ll only need a few for the total to go OVER.

Britney Griner, OVER 20.5 Points (-106 via FanDuel)

Griner has only been back for four games, so there isn’t much data to work with here. But based on what we have seen in those games, she’ll be good for 20+ as long as she logs 30 minutes of game time. While she has not had a double this season, she was a rebound away from getting one in her last three games.

With plus money odds, this market has value.
