WNBA Rookie of the Year odds: Caitlin Clark is Overwhelming Favorite

The No. 1 pick in the WNBA Draft typically earns the benefit of the doubt regarding this award.

Of the last 16 winners since 2008, 11 of them were drafted No. 1 overall in their respective draft. That includes consecutive winners in Aliyah Boston (Fever) and Rhyne Howard (Dream) the previous two seasons.

Not only was Clark the top pick in this year’s draft, but she’s easily the biggest story in the league this season. Her popularity after a stellar career with Iowa will boost ratings and revenue for the W.

Clark is also a dynamic scorer, as she’s proved by becoming the NCAA Division I all-time leading scorer in both men’s and women’s basketball. The two-time National Player of the Year averaged 28.4 points per game in college, shooting 46.2% from the floor.

Clark should have no problem putting up the counting stats necessary to win this award for an Indiana team that needs some shot creation.

Clark has an implied probability of 90.9% of winning this award based on the latest odds.
