Best WNBA Prop Bets 2024 07 05

Atlanta Dream vs. Dallas Wings

  • Location: College Park Center in Arlington. T

  • Game Time & Date: 7 p.m. ET on Friday, July 5

  • Coverage: ION

  • Point Spread: Wings -2

Tina Charles, OVER 15.5 Points at -115 via bet365

  • OVER 9.5 Rebounds at +110

Charles has done what a good veteran player should do when her team gets hit hard with injuries—she’s stepped her game up. While her season average is 14.2 ppg, she’s scored 16+ in four of her last six games, including twice against a solid New York Liberty defense.

Dallas is struggling mightily on defense this season. For the season, they are allowing 88.9 ppg. However, over the last ten, they’ve allowed 92.3 ppg and 95.2 ppg over the last five. They aren’t going to hold Charles back too much (if at all).

Regarding her rebounds total, Charles is averaging 9.1 per game, but she has been an absolute beast on the boards with 14 and 12. However, she had 10+ in just five of her last 12 games. Dallas is a decent rebounding team, but Charles did have 11 against them in the earlier game.

Charles has had 10+ in just eight of 18 games, but at +110, we like the value of this prop.

Arike Ogunbowale, OVER 23.5 Points at +100 via bet365

With a season-long average of 23.8 ppg (second best), hoping she’ll record 24 tonight is not unreasonable. Atlanta’s defense is decent but nothing spectacular. Ogunbowale scored 24 against them earlier in the year. She’s had 20+ in six of her last seven games and 24+ in three.

If this one had minus money odds, we’d say to pass on it. But with plus money odds, we like the value.

Natasha Howard, UNDER 7.5 Rebounds at -130 via bet365

It is tempting to bet on her point total after watching Howard hang 36 on Phoenix her last time out. But her scoring numbers have been sporadic this season, ranging from six to 36 over the last week (four games). Her rebounding total, however, is a different story.

She did have 11 against the Mercury but has had 8+ in just two of seven games since her return.

Chicago Sky vs. Seattle Storm

  • Location: Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle, WA

  • Game Time & Date: 10 p.m. ET on Friday, July 5

  • Coverage: ION

  • Point Spread: Storm -9.5

Angel Reese, To Record a Double Double -140 via FanDuel

  • UNDER 13.5 Points at -110

  • OVER 12.5 Rebounds at -115

Reese will be trying to break the record for consecutive games with a double-double, with her 13th in a row. Seattle is playing tough defense right now. But Reese has already faced some of the league’s best defenders during her record-breaking run.

With how she’s been playing,  there is no reason to doubt her now. However, if you do, you can bet on her not to record a double-double at +165 via bet365.

While she has scored in the teens and a couple of times in the 20s, Reese has not been a dominant scoring threat. She will be good for at least ten points,  but with how well Seattle’s defense is playing these days, don’t count on much more.

As for her rebound total, asking her to record at least 13 is ambitious for a player averaging 11.8 per game. However, she has had 13+ in six of her last seven games and 10+ in every game since facing Indiana on June 1.

Jewell Lloyd, UNDER 21.5 Points at -105 via bet365

Lloyd was the leading scorer in the WNBA last season but has not been as active this season. However, she has been picking up the pace for the Storm lately, leading the team in scoring in the last four games and six of the previous ten.

She’s averaged 30 ppg in the last three games,  but two were against a dreadful Dallas defense and one against an improving but still lackluster Indiana defense. Unlike those teams, Seattle has one of the best defenses in the league. She’ll score in the high teens but don’t count on more than 22.

Kamilla Cardoso, UNDER 8.5 Points at -115 via bet365

Cardoso was not a big scoring threat in college (14.4 ppg last season; 10.6 ppg career) and has not developed into one in the WNBA (8.3 ppg). She has had a few big moments on the scoreboard, but her season high is just 16, and she’s scored under 8.5 points in her last three games.
