Caitlin Clark WNBA Draft Projection: Where Will Caitlin Clark Land In WNBA?

Fact Checked by Pat McLoone

Few college prospects on the men’s or women’s basketball scene have commanded the level of national interest that Caitlin Clark has. The fourth-year senior has an NCAA record 3,771 points across 133 games and a laundry list of awards earned during her run in Iowa City. 

The astonishing run had made her a true hero in Iowa and has meant major action in Iowa sports betting

Clark’s newest challenge once this month’s NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament wraps up is to ready herself for the grind of the upcoming WNBA regular season, with the league’s draft happening in Brooklyn on April 15 and the opening day of the 2024 league year taking place on May 14.

ESPN’s Michael Voepel has Clark as the undisputed top pick in April’s draft, going to the Indiana Fever, with Cameron Brink of Stanford going No. 2 to the Los Angeles Sparks.  

With that in mind, IowaBets.com – your source for Iowa sportsbook promos  â€“ broke down where Clark will go from here as she embarks on a professional career after as memorable a four-year run as anyone has had in the modern era of NCAA athletics.

Right now, Indiana is the commanding favorite to land Clark, thanks to them getting the No. 1 pick in the 2024 WNBA Draft. Indiana has -20000 odds of drafting Clark.  

Should the improbable happen and the Fever decide to go elsewhere at No. 1, expect the Sparks (+50000) to jump in and draft the senior guard.

There also is a distant (+30000) chance that Clark decides to return for a fifth (COVID) year, but the odds seem set that she will go to Indiana next month.

Is Caitlin Clark Going to the WNBA?

Yes. Clark officially declared for the WNBA Draft on Feb. 29 on social media. "While this season is far from over and we have a lot more goals to achieve, it will be my last one at Iowa," Clark said on social media. "I am excited to be entering the 2024 WNBA Draft. 

"It is impossible for me to fully express my gratitude to everyone who has supported me during my time at Iowa - my teammates, who made the last four years the best; my coaches, trainers and staff who always let me be me; Hawkeye fans who filled Carver every night; and everyone who came out to support us across the country, especially young kids." 

Now, Clark and the Hawkeyes will do their best to win the program’s first national title this spring, with oddsmakers at ESPN BET Iowa giving the Hawkeyes +475 title odds, ranking second overall behind South Carolina (-130) and ahead of defending champion LSU (+550).
