What WNBA Betting Markets Can I Bet On?

The main WNBA betting markets are Moneyline, spread, over / under total points and player props.

Money Line - The money line is betting on which team will win the game. There is no option for a draw in the WNBA, with teams going to overtime if the score is tied at the end of regulation, so the moneyline is a two-way market in which you bet on one team to win, and it includes overtime. 

Spread - The spread market is more also known as a handicap. Bookmakers will assign one team a positive (+) or negative (-) spread, line or handicap depending on favoritism for the game, and the bettor bets to cover the line.

Let’s use an WNBA game between the Seattle Storm and Las Vegas Aces as an example. If the Aces start with a +7.5 point spread and you bet on the Aces, they need to win the game or lose by less than 8 points in order for your bet to win.

On the other side of the coin, the Storm would be assigned a -7.5 point spread meaning they would need to win by 8 or more points in order for your bet on the Storm to be a winner.

Over / Under Total Points - This WNBA betting market allows bettors to bet on the total amount of points scored in a game by both teams. The sportsbook will set a line, let’s say 190.5 points and you can bet on the total points scored by both teams going over or under that total. 

Player Props - Also known as player performance, these WNBA bets allows you to bet on one player in a number of categories including points, rebounds and assists. This is a very popular market which relies on the bookmaker setting the line and the bettor picking over or under.

What Is An WNBA Parlay Bet?

A parlay bet is when you place a sports bet using multiple selections (this is known as an accumulator in some countries). Parlay bets can be placed using one selected sport or league or can be placed on one competition. That means you can place an WNBA parlay bet during the regular season and the playoffs as long as you can make at least two selections.

Parlay betting is a popular form of betting because it allows you an opportunity to make big wins from small stakes due to the enhanced risk involved. If, for example, you make three selections in your bet, you will need all three to be a winner for you bet to be successful. Some bookmakers will offer you the chance to insure your WNBA parlay bet and others will give you the chance to boost your winnings. For details on these WNBA betting promotions, read on:

Are There Any WNBA Betting Promotions?

Of course there are WNBA betting promotions. Basketball remains one of the most popular sports across North America so it goes without saying that there are a host of WNBA betting promotions available from licensed bookmakers throughout the regular season and the postseason.

These vary in type, with some offering customers the opportunity to insure their bets, while other offer customers the chance to add bonuses to their winnings. One leading sportsbook offers customers the chance to claim bonuses of up to 70% on winning WNBA parlay bet, while another will refund your losing wager if one selection in your parlay bet lets you down.

So whichever bookmaker you place your bets with, check out the bookmaker promotions section in order to find out what WNBA betting promotions are available to you. And if you are looking for a new bookmaker to place your WNBA bets with, check out our review section here.
