Ben Heisler and Donnavan Smoot are back to give you their best bets of tonight’s WNBA slate. 

Heisler went a perfect 4-0 yesterday, so the team is looking to stay hot tonight. There’s only two games on the docket tonight, but there’s still plenty of picks for Lynx vs. Dream.

Here are the plays our team is eyeing for tonight’s slate with odds coming from WynnBET Sportsbook.

Top WNBA Picks For June 1

  • Fever vs. Liberty UNDER 164 (-110)
  • Lynx +4 vs. Dream (-110)

Fever vs. Liberty Best Bet

Fever vs. Liberty UNDER 164 (-110)

It's not often that a 1-7 team is a 3.5-point favorite against anyone, but the Liberty are just that when they host the Indiana Fever this evening.

The Fever are on the second game of a back-to-back in New York tonight; fresh off a 12-point loss to the Mystics at home. Indiana hung tough offensively against one of the league's best defenses, heading into halftime with a 46-38 lead, but Washington held them to just 29 second half points to win 87-75.

Meanwhile, the Liberty can't score, and after some better efforts defensively at Minnesota and Seattle, they got trounced 92-61 by the Storm two days later.

The Fever play at the league's fastest pace, but only are 10th in points per 100 possessions. Similar to Washington, New York ranks 10th in possessions/40 minutes; which lead to the under last night in Indianapolis. The Fever will likely run out of gas in the second half, and New York is not only terrible on offense, they also play slowly.

Feels like an under kind of night in New York.. – Ben Heisler

Lynx vs. Dream Best Bet

Lynx +4 vs. Dream (-110)

The Minnesota Lynx have one of the three worst records in the WNBA, yet I’m going to back them tonight. Although Minnesota hasn’t been able to get wins on its resume, the numbers don’t look terrible. They are in the 58th percentile in pace and five of their seven losses are by six points or less. 

Over the last week, away underdogs are 1-7 straight up. However, they are 50% against the spread in that time. The Dream have been thriving off its defense, but those numbers are inflated due to playing the Fever twice. 

I think the Lynx are a little better than advertised, so I’ll take the points tonight.  – Donnavan Smoot
