Best WNBA Prop Bets 2024 06 27 Lynx Napheesa Collier

Minnesota Lynx vs. Dallas Wings

  • Location: College Park Center in Arlington, Texas.

  • Game Time & Date: 1 p.m. ET on Thursday, June 27.

  • Coverage: WNBA League Pass

  • Point Spread: Lynx -9 (via FanDuel)

Napheesa Collier, OVER 22.5 Points (-106 via FanDuel)

Collier is averaging 20.9 ppg this season and is coming off a 21-point night against a tough New York defense in the Commissioner’s Cup championship game. But the Liberty has one of the better defenses in the league, while tonight’s opponent, the Dallas Wings, ranks second to last.

So, it should be an easy night on the scoreboard, right? Not exactly. Collier has gone over 22.5 points just four times in ten games this month. In the two games vs. the Wings, she had 24 and 16 points.

But while that may make the UNDER sound like the way to go, Minnesota is fresh off their biggest win of the season vs. the New York Liberty in the Commissioner’s Cup game. Collier will look to make a statement with a convincing win over a struggling Dallas Wings team.

Alanna Smith, UNDER 12.5 Points (-108 via FanDuel)

A former first-round pick, Smith is averaging a respectable 12 ppg this season in 28.3 minutes per game, both career highs. However, her touches are limited as the third-best scoring option on the floor (next to Napheesa Collier and Kayla McBride); she averages 8.8 attempts a night and makes 4.4.

This month, she has scored over 12.5 points twice. In the two games vs. Dallas, she had 12 and eight. She can have bigger nights but don’t bank on her scoring more than 12 points in this game.

Connecticut Sun vs. Washington Mystics

  • Location: Entertainment & Sports Arena in Washington, D.C.

  • Game Time & Date: 7 p.m. ET on Thursday, June 27

  • Coverage: NBA TV/ MNMT

  • Point Spread: Sun -9.5 (via FanDuel)

DeWanna Bonner, UNDER 16.5 Points (-104 via FanDuel)

Bonner is averaging 16.3 ppg this year, but in games against the Mystics, she scored 20 and 22 points. So, take the OVER, right? Not so fast. This month, she is averaging 14 ppg and has struggled with her shot a little. After making 46.6% of her shots in May, she’s making 38.6% in June.

While Bonner has gone over in both previous games vs. Washington, she has not played a significant role in the offense this month. She has scored over 16.5 points in just three games this month: 17 vs. Indiana (6/10), 20 vs. Washington (6/4), and 18 vs. Atlanta (6/2).

Alyssa Thomas, UNDER 21.5 Pts + Reb (-108 via FanDuel)

Thomas can be a little frustrating to bet on because while she can put up 14 points and pull down 14 boards like she did Sunday against Seattle, her production is hard to count on. She has scored over her season average (12.4 ppg) just three times this month.

While she has pulled down 18 rebounds in a game (vs. Indiana, 6/10), she just had three against the Aces (6/21).

On May 17, she put 13 points and pulled down 11 boards against the Mystics, but we expect her stat line to look more like the one she had against Washington on June 4, seven points and seven rebounds.

Ariel Atkins, UNDER 14.5 Points (-102 via FanDuel)

Atkins is the most reliable scoring threat Washington has, but against the Sun’s stellar defense, fans may not want to expect too much from her. She managed just eight and nine points in both earlier games vs. Connecticut. Bettors should expect similar results.

Las Vegas Aces vs. Chicago Sky

  • Location: Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Illinois

  • Game Time & Date: 7 p.m. ET on Thursday, June 27

  • Coverage: Prime Video

  • Point Spread: Aces -10 (via FanDuel)

A’ja Wilson, OVER 26.5 Points (-114 via FanDuel)

Wilson has recorded 27+ in six of eight games this month but in just one of her last three. The two teams she failed to score 27+ against were the Sun (No. 1 defense in the WNBA) and Liberty (No. 3). She shouldn’t have much trouble clearing 27+ vs. a Chicago team allowing 83.8 ppg at home this month (ninth-best).

A’ja Wilson, OVER 11.5 Rebounds (+102 via FanDuel)

For a player averaging 11.6 per game, over 11.5 should be easy– right? Not exactly. While Wilson can pull down 12+ rebounds against anyone, she has had 12+ in just three of eight games this month, including her last (vs. Connecticut, 16 rebounds).

Chicago is a good rebounding team, but Wilson is exceptional. Taking the UNDER at -136 is a decision hard to argue with, considering how she has played this month. But with Wilson’s ability,  we like the plus-money odds on the OVER.

Angel Reese, UNDER 25.5 Pts + Reb (-112 via FanDuel)

  • To Record a Double-Double -165

Reese has been on a roll lately, having recorded eight consecutive double-doubles. For that reason alone, it is worth betting on her to record a ninth tonight. But at those odds, there isn’t much value since she’s playing one of the best all-around teams in the league.

As for her points + rebounds total, Reese is averaging 13.2 points per game and 11.1 rebounds. She’s combined for 25.5 + in her last two games and five of nine this month. But against the Vegas defense, we don’t expect her to make it six in ten.

Bet on Aces vs. Sky at FanDuel 

Indiana Fever vs. Seattle Storm

  • Location: Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle, Washington

  • Game Time & Date: 10 p.m. ET on Thursday, June 27

  • Coverage: Prime Video

  • Point Spread: Storm -8.5 (via FanDuel)

Caitlin Clark, OVER 3.5 Made Threes (+134 via FanDuel)

For much of the season, the UNDER would be the logical choice. But with the offense featuring Aliyah Boston and Kelsey Mithcell more, it has been easier for Clark to get open looks—so she’s taking them. She made five of nine in her last game vs. Chicago and four of eight the game prior vs. Atlanta.

She went 3-8 and 2-8 in her two games vs. Seattle. However, the offense is playing better as a team, and Clark is starting to resemble the sharpshooter she was in college. At +134, we love the value here.

Jewell Lloyd, OVER 20.5 Points (-114 via FanDuel)

Lloyd has not scored OVER 20.5 in her last four games and has done so just three times in June (eight games). While Indiana’s defense has been notoriously porous this year, it hasn’t been too bad this month (79.8 ppg allowed, fourth best). But Lloyd has played well against the Fever this year, scoring 22 in Indianapolis and 32 at home.
