Iowa star basketball player Caitlin Clark has been getting some richly deserved endorsement attention lately. This has helped Caitlin Clark's NIL value skyrocket. For instance, this weekend folks can look for her in television commercials for State Farm Insurance, the same company that features Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes, tight end Jason Kelce, and coach Andy Reid. And, of course, starring the always helpful “Jake”.
While Clark is beginning to attract the type of advertising opportunities that traditionally have gone to pro sports stars, she is also getting top billing in IowaBets.com’s hypothetical odds for winning the Associated Press Women’s College Basketball Player of the Year Award. Clark’s hypothetical odds which you won't find on Iowa sports betting apps, have been calculated at minus-120, or a 54.5% chance, for being named the top women’s hoops player for the 2023-24 season.

Caitlin Clark's Path to Player of The Year
A native Iowan, Clark, a guard, has been in the limelight her entire college career starting with her first season with the Hawkeyes in 2020–21 when she led the NCAA Division I in scoring. In her sophomore season, she set a new standard in women’s basketball as the first player to lead Division I in both points and assists in a single season. Last season, she won all major player of the Year honors and helped Iowa to its first national championship game where the Hawkeyes lost to LSU, 102-85.
After five games this season, Clark was averaging 31.0 points, 7.4 rebounds and 8.0 assists as the Hawkeyes were off to a 4-1 start.
IowaBets.com - your home for Iowa sports betting news and promo codes - lists hypothetical odds forecast Virginia Tech center Elizabeth Kitley as the next most likely player to win AP honors at plus-800 odds or an 11.4% chance. Kitley is back with the Hokies for a fifth year of eligibility because of the COVID-19 pandemic. She was the ACC Player of the Year last season.
