WNBA Best Bets (Saturday 6/8)


We have two games Saturday in the WNBA. Rookie Angel Reese and the Chicago Sky will go Atlanta to face the Dream, while the 2023 WNBA Finals runner-up New York Liberty will face the undefeated Connecticut Sun.

Below, we will be going over our best bet from this two-game slate.

Jonquel Jones Over 9.5 Rebounds

(+104, FanDuel Sportsbook)

How about a little revenge spot? The 2020 WNBA MVP certainly made the most out of facing her former team last season in her first year in New York, averaging just under 13 RPG during their postseason series. Now, it’s tough to judge her regular season numbers, as the Liberty really managed her minutes throughout the season, but Jones did average 0.34 Rebounds Per Minute in four regular season matchups (she averaged 0.35 Rebounds Per Minute versus the Sun in the postseason). With Jones averaging slightly under 29 minutes per game to this point through nine regular season games in 2024, and generally in the 31- to 34-minute range in non-blowout games, she would need just 29 minutes at those rebound per minute numbers to reach double digits, so I do see a bit of value at 9.5, +104.
