Saturday was a tough 0-3 betting day in the WNBA for the BetSided team, as backing two unders for two elite defensive teams in the league went awry. The Washington Mystics stunned the Las Vegas Aces on the road, but both teams scored in the mid 80's (total was 168, finished at 173), while we suffered yet another bad beat at the hands of the Storm as the under 160 fell (total finished at 162).

Today, we've got two games on the schedule, as the all of a sudden struggling Connecticut Sun look to turn things around in Atlanta vs. the Dream, while the Chicago Sky return from their three game road trip to face the suddenly surging Minnesota Lynx.

Best WNBA Picks For Sunday, June 26

  • Sun vs. Dream UNDER 163.5 (-110)
  • Sky -7 vs. Lynx (-110)

Sun vs. Dream Best Bets

What has happened to Atlanta's stout defense? After looking like they were back with an upset home win against the Wings, the Dream let up 89 points to one of the worst offenses in the league in the New York Liberty three days later.

I still expect them to answer the bell against a Sun squad that's also struggled to put the ball in the basket over their last few games. They scored a season-low 63 points against the Washington Mystics a week ago, and followed it up with slightly better, but still poor offensive showing at home in a 81-77 loss to the Liberty.

The good news for the Sun is their defense has still shown up over their last three games. Giving up an average of only 74.3 PPG despite the two losses. The Dream, despite ranking third in possessions per 40 minutes, still rank dead last in points per 100 possessions.

Even with their recent struggles, the Dream still own the best defensive rating in the league, while also owning the worst offensive rating. They've also been a much better team at home. 163.5 isn't a lot of points, but I still see this Sunday afternoon affair headed for a slower, defensive grind-it-out type game.

PICK: UNDER 163.5 (-110)

Lynx vs. Sky Best Bets

When I first saw the Sky only favored by seven points, my first thought was to take the Lynx immediately. Chicago is prone to a let-down game or two, evidenced by a brutal 89-87 loss in the first game of their three-game road trip last week at Indiana.

But the Sky bounced back brilliantly. They erased a 28-point deficit on the road to the best team in the league in Las Vegas to win by 9, and followed it up with a thrashing of the L.A. Sparks 82-59.

They now return home and face a Lynx team that's won two in a row for the first time all season, and have put up terrific efforts in their last three games despite being short-handed for four of them. They finally got center Sylvia Fowles back and she put up 14 and 10 in just 22 minutes vs. a Mercury team.

While back-to-back wins vs. the Mercury may appear to be a good thing, remember this is a Phoenix team that's punted on the season, moving on from second-leading scorer Tina Charles on Saturday.

I think the line is less of a reflection of Minnesota's recent improvements, and more-so on whether star Kahleah Copper will play with some back tightness.

Even if she's out, Chicago may have even more of a sense of urgency at home, and I think they're more than capable of covering the seven points.

PICK: Sky -7 (-110)
