2024 WNBA Draft Picks: Aaliyah Edwards, Cameron Brink, Alissa Pili, Rickea Jackson

The WNBA season inches closer tonight with another major event taking place. The 2024 WNBA Draft is this evening, and it will be historic given this year’s class includes the one and only Caitlin Clark. Expected to go No. 1 overall, there are no surprises expected in that initial pick. However, there is some value to be had in the other 2024 WNBA Draft betting markets. Let’s dive into our favorite 2024 WNBA odds, picks, and predictions.

2024 WNBA Draft Position Value Picks & Longshots

Welcome to the whirlwind world of the 2024 WNBA Draft, where future stars from collegiate basketball head straight onto the draft stage. While the spotlight shines brightly on expected top pick Caitlin Clark, the draft also presents a unique opportunity to uncover value picks and longshot bets for the draft position of future WNBA players.

Rickea Jackson (SF – Tennessee) Over 3.5 (+180)

There is a decent chance Kamilla Cardoso could have leapfrogged Jackson with her stellar Final Four performance. At +180, there is definite value in picking Jackson to fall out of the Top 3.


Aaliyah Edwards (PF – UConn) Under 5.5 (-130)

There is value in -130 here because there is absolutely, positively no way that Aaliyah Edwards falls past the Dallas Wings. It’s a no-brainer. This -130 should be closer to the -230 Rickea Jackson’s Under, considering Edwards is way less likely to fall past No. 5 than Jackson is to fall last No. 3.


Alissa Pili (SF – Utah) Under 9.5 (+120)

I can easily see Pili going as high as No. 8 to Chicago’s second Round 1 pick and potentially teaming her with Kamilla Cardoso. Additionally, I have a hard team seeing her slip past Dallas. Her probability of going before Pick No. 10 is greater than the implied probability of the +120 return being offered.


Cameron Brink (PF/C – Stanford) Over 2.5 (+1500)

This longshot bet is predicated entirely upon whether or not Kamilla Cardoso impressed Raegan Pebley and the rest of the LA brass to pass on the No. 1 overall recruit in the class of 2020. Was her Final Four performance enough for Cardoso to leapfrog Cameron Brink? This longest of long shots is worth a micro-sprinkle because it is essentially Cameron Brink against The Field. I’m not sure the odds represent the true probability. Something is to be said for “The Field” in this one. There is also always the off chance LA decides not to miss out on Rickea Jackson and take their chances on either still getting Brink or, at worst, Kamilla Cardoso with the No. 4 pick they also possess. This perfect storm of Sparks picks provides a possible path to this longshot cashing.
