As part of our brand-new WNBA betting tools implemented across Dimers Pro, we have added boxscore projections to our WNBA game predictions, just like we have in the NBA. We're going to use those projection to identify a few plus-money ways to bet on the Chicago Sky vs. Dallas Wings game at 8PM ET tonight.

Our model has been running simulations on today's slate ever since lines became available and we are using that data to identify betting opportunities in the Chicago Sky vs. Dallas Wings game.

Four Ways to Bet on Chicago Sky vs. Dallas Wings - May 18, 2024

As mentioned, we are looking at the nighttime matchup featuring the Chicago Sky vs. Dallas Wings.

You can find multiple props with an edgeas well as prop projections for every player in this game with Dimers Pro, so if you're not keen on these wagers, use our data to find the play that's right for you!

The below odds are via FanDuel Sportsbook and are correct at time of publishing.

Bet #1 - Chicago Sky to Win (+184)

The first bet is on the Chicago Sky to win outright as underdogs on the road against the Dallas Wings. The Wings are 4.5-point favorites but our model projects the Sky to cover with an average final score of 83-81 in favor of Dallas. An underdog at +184 fora  game projected to be this close is a steal, and the Sky are worth looking at on the spread as a standalone bet or in a parlay.

At a 44% probability to win, our fair odds for Chicago would be approximately +125, so you can see the clear value at +184, which implies just a 35.1% probability. This is a rematch of each team's season opener in which the Wings won by 8.

Bet #2 - Marina Mabrey Top Points Scorer (+310)

Next, we look at Sky guard Marina Mabrey to score the most points out of anyone in this game against her former team. Mabrey put up 19 in the opener, leading Chicago but trailing the game's overall top scorer (and rightful favorite) Arike Ogunbowale who put up 25 points.

Tonight, we project Mabrey for 18 points, tied for the second-most in this game, one point behind our projected top scorer Ogunbowale with 19 points. With a projection that close, it's worth looking at Mabrey to lead this game in scoring, particularly when you consider that our model finds strong value in Ogunbowale's Under 22.5 Points line. Mabrey is just +128 to score 20+ points, for reference.

Bet #3 - Angel Reese Double Double (+340)

This one is not completely backed by our projection, but it's well within the range of outcomes given how close we are. The seventh-overall pick in this year's WNBA draft, Angel Reese turned in a solid first game with the Sky, with a 12 PTS, 8 REB line in 26 minutes.

She got in a little foul trouble, but was still productive despite that and some shooting struggles. We're projecitng her for a similar line tonight with 13 points and 9 boards, one shy of a double-double. Since we're projecting her to get the points, it's worth a look at her DD prop at +340. Consider her standard rebounds line at plus-money, as well, which is another one of our Best WNBA props today.

Bet #4 - Teaira McCowan Top Points Scorer (+850)

The final bet has the longest odds of them all, but it shouldn't be so far away based on our model's projections for this game. Wings center Teara McCowan put up an 18-point double-double in their opener vs. the Sky, the third-most points in the game. Though she trailed game leader Arike Ogunbowale by seven points, she was more efficient on 8-14 shooting in just 29 minutes. Ogunbowale's three-point attempts will give her a higher ceiling, but as we are projecting McCowan for 18 and Ogunbowale for 19, the +850 odds are highly appealing for a little longshot bet.

As well as being your best source for WNBA predictions, Dimers also has the latest WNBA news, WNBA predictions for every game, daily WNBA best bets, and WNBA props and WNBA trends coming soon.

Can I bet on WNBA with Dimers?

No. There’s no WNBA bet slip on our site because we don’t take any WNBA bets ourselves. We’re the friend who gives you the best WNBA picks and predictions then tells you where and how to get the best WNBA sign up offers at the sportsbooks, so you can throw your WNBA bets down. That’s it!

When you click on one of our buttons or links in our WNBA content, you’re whisked away to DraftKings, BetMGM, FanDuel, or one of the many other sportsbooks we work with.

Once you get there, you can join up to score a welcome bonus (up to $200!), and then get those WNBA bets down for yourself, but you’re betting on the WNBA with them, not us. Since you are never betting anything directly with us, we don’t have access to your personal information or sensitive financial info like credit card numbers.

It also means that despite our best efforts to confirm that a sports betting site still has that awesome WNBA sign up offer available, the best ones often disappear just as quickly as they appeared. We always take these offers down once we know they’re no longer available. We take our responsibility to provide up to date WNBA information very seriously.

Finally, Responsible Gambling is extremely important to us, so please remember that WNBA betting should be seen as a form of entertainment - adding to your enjoyment while watching from the couch - not a side hustle or second income stream.

If Dimers doesn't take WNBA bets, then how do you make money?

Whenever you join a sportsbook mentioned in our WNBA picks and predictions across the website, or use one of our promo codes, we get a small commission for referring you. Don’t worry, though, this doesn’t affect you in any way at all. That’s a fee the sportsbook pays us as a thank-you for sending another WNBA bettor their way.

We’re always happy to help our readers troubleshoot any problems. Start with our About Us or Contact Us and if that doesn’t work for you, then you can always send us an email at contact@dimers.com. We’ll do our best to help you figure it out.
