WNBA Betting News & Analysis

Latest News

Upcoming Events

While wagering on the WNBA isn’t one of the most popular forms of online sports betting, the likes of Sabrina Ionescu, Diana Taurasi, and other stars are increasing the interest in the action. And while WNBA point spreads play a big part in most conversations, more women’s basketball betting fans are handicapping OVER/UNDER bets and wagering on WNBA props on players such as A'ja Wilson, Kia Nurse, and Brittney Griner.

Betting On WNBA 

Even though spread betting is probably your best betting option, you can still wager on the moneyline and futures bets in addition to totals and prop bets. Beating the WNBA odds can be challenging. Today’s game is all about runs, which makes it vulnerable to backdoor covers. Matchup reports and betting trends become that much more imperative.

Be sure to keep an eye out for WNBA power rankings or WNBA consensus. If you notice a high percentage of the public wagering on one side of a WNBA game (or on the OVER/UNDER), don’t be fooled into wagering the other way.

Learn To Bet On WNBA 

Similar to NBA betting news, studying WNBA basketball odds and line moves is pretty essential when wagering on the Women’s National Basketball Association. Winning WNBA bets boils down to researching athlete and team wagering trends, injury reports, matchups, and line value.

Odds Shark Values Underdogs

Not only have big underdogs been historically undervalued in the WNBA, they do quite well against the spread, even more so when they’re battling it out on the road away from home. This ultimately presents the opportunity to buy low. Another good opportunity to take the underdog is when a bad team with a losing record comes off a win. Oddsmakers have little faith that they will play well in consecutive games.

Betting On The UNDER

WNBA games are shorter than NBA games. Instead of 48 minutes, like the NBA, WNBA games are 40 minutes with four ten-minute quarters. Casual bettors looking to wager on WNBA totals or individual player props should factor in fewer scoring opportunities.


Gambling on the WNBA is very much like gambling on the NBA, except for a few things.
