If you want to boost your income portfolio this week, then it could be worth checking out the ASX 200 dividend shares listed below that analysts rate as buys.

Here's why they are feeling bullish on them:

Stockland Corporation Ltd (ASX: SGP)

This residential and land lease developer and retail, logistics and office real estate property manager could be an ASX 200 dividend share to buy according to analysts at Citi.

The broker likes Stockland due to its "strong medium-term growth outlook and cheap valuation." Citi has a buy rating and a $5 price target for its shares.

In addition, its analysts are forecasting some big very attractive dividend yields in the near term. It expects dividends per share of 27 cents in FY 2024 and FY 2025. Based on the current Stockland share price of $3.99, this will mean yields of 6.8% in both years.

Transurban Group (ASX: TCL)

Citi also thinks that Transurban is an ASX 200 dividend share to buy right now.

Transurban manages and develops urban toll road networks in Australia and North America.

Citi likes the company due to its inflation-linked price increases and its defensive qualities, which it believes will underpin "strong EBITDA growth outlook (c.12% CAGR between Fy24-FY26)."

The broker has a buy rating and a $15.90 price target on its shares.

As for income, Citi is expecting dividends per share of 63.4 cents in FY 2024 and 64.6 cents in FY 2025. Based on the current Transurban share price of $12.99, this will mean yields of 4.9% and 5%, respectively.

Westpac Banking Corp (ASX: WBC)

Ord Minnett believes that Westpac could be an ASX 200 dividend share to buy. Its analysts see significant upside in the bank's shares at current levels.

Earlier this month, the broker put an accumulate rating and $28 price target on its shares.

In respect to dividends, it is expecting fully franked dividends per share of $1.45 in FY 2024 and $1.51 in FY 2025. Based on the current Westpac share price of $21.10, this will mean dividend yields of ~6.9% and 7.15%, respectively.
