WNBA Prop Bets Today

Last Updated: May 17, 2024

We have two WNBA games on the schedule tonight, including Mystics vs Sun and a rematch between the Storm and Lynx. Both contests feature plenty of star power, so there’s no shortage of player props worth checking out.

Here are the best WNBA prop bets for today.

All WNBA odds are current as of Friday, May 17.

DeWanna Bonner: Over 16.5 Points (-115) vs Mystics

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

Bonner introduced herself to a new generation of WNBA fans with a dominant performance over Caitlin Clark and the Indiana Fever on Tuesday, notching 20 points on 8-of-14 shooting in 29 minutes. The display was nothing new for the 36-year-old, and she looks poised to build upon it against the Mystics.

Bonner averaged 17.4 points per game this past season and enjoyed plenty of success against Washington, scoring 20.3 points per game and notching 17-plus in three out of four matchups. This is also a different Mystics team — one that might not be as capable defensively without Natasha Cloud.

I expect to see All-Defensive guard Brittney Sykes spend some time on Bonner, but she’ll also have her hands full between DiJonai Carrington and Tyasha Harris, who looked sharp in increased roles against Indiana.

Look for another quality outing from the five-time All-Star and make this your WNBA bet of the day.

Lynx: 1H Moneyline (+120) vs Storm

bet365 Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

The Storm are widely expected to take a leap this year thanks to the additions of Nneka Ogwumike and Skylar Diggins-Smith, but then again, so are the Lynx. Minnesota beefed up its starting rotation by adding Alanna Smith and Courtney Williams, who came up big in their season-opening win over Seattle.

Despite losing to the Lynx in their home debut, the Storm remain favorites ahead of tonight’s rematch in Minneapolis. If you’re looking to take advantage of that potential oversight, consider backing Minnesota to win the first half.

The Lynx held a one-point advantage over Seattle at the break on Tuesday before pulling away in the second half for an 83-70 victory. I don’t doubt that the Storm have a higher ceiling, but it may take more time for their new stars to figure out how to play together.

If Minnesota can get the job done on the road, it can certainly come out and put forth another strong first-half effort in its home opener. I’d consider grabbing this line soon, though, because I’ve already seen it bet down to (+105) at other sportsbooks.
