  • A'ja Wilson is the best WNBA player in 2024.
  • Breanna Stewart is No. 2 after winning last year's MVP award.

The WNBA’s talent pool continues to improve, with promising young standouts like Caitlin Clark joining the league this season.

While Clark didn’t make the list in these initial player rankings, she will probably leave her imprint on the league soon. 

For now, the best players in the league will be familiar names for those paying attention to the latest WNBA MVP odds at the BetMGM online sportsbook.

1. A’ja Wilson

Despite finishing third in the WNBA MVP voting last year, Wilson is the best player in the league until further notice. 

The dominant two-way superstar is in her prime and leading the way for an Aces team coming off back-to-back titles. This could be Wilson’s best season yet, as evidenced by her preseason price to win a third MVP award.

2. Breanna Stewart

Stewart secured a second MVP trophy last summer in her first season with the New York Liberty.

After last year’s runner-up finish, the Liberty remain the biggest threat to the Aces in the WNBA Championship odds. Stewart will now try to help New York claim its first title in franchise history.

3. Alyssa Thomas

Thomas deserves a high ranking after finishing runner-up in last year’s MVP race. She averaged 15.5 points, 9.9 rebounds, and 7.9 assists per game to lead the Sun to the semifinals.

But don’t be surprised if Thomas drops in these rankings in her age-32 season.

4. Napheesa Collier

After a fourth-place finish in the WNBA MVP voting last year, Minnesota Lynx forward Napheesa Collier has emerged as one of the top players in the league.

Collier averaged 21.5 points and 8.5 rebounds per game last year to lead the Lynx to the playoffs. If Minnesota can finish higher in the WNBA standings, Collier could become a more legitimate contender in the MVP race.

Collier, 27, is +5000 to win this year’s award.

5. Nneka Ogwumike

Despite playing on a Los Angeles Sparks team that won 17 games last year, forward Nneka Ogwumike finished sixth in the WNBA MVP race.

After a dozen seasons with the Sparks, Ogwumike has joined the Seattle Storm to have more on-court success this season. The Storm are considered the third-best team in the league behind the Aces and Liberty.

Ogwumike, who was the league’s MVP in 2016, will play a key role in determining Seattle’s chances of contending for a title in a top-heavy league.
