Storm vs. Sun Best Bets

This is the third time the Storm and Sun will play this year, and it’s been pretty one-sided up to this point. Connecticut has won both games by a combined 18 points, covering in both games. Seattle’s offense has been a little shaky since the All-Star break, but I’m going to put trust in their defense today. The Storm not only have the second-best defense in the league, but they also play at the second-slowest pace in the league. I trust the Storm to finally get a win by slowing down the Sun and winning a defensive battle. 

Connecticut has a great record, but it’s last three wins have come against the Liberty and the Lynx twice. They don’t have many convincing wins on the year, leading to their 14-14 ATS record. 

Third time’s the charm will be the case tonight. – Donnavan Smoot

Pick: Storm ML vs. Sun (+138)

Lynx vs. Dream Best Bets

They say styles make fights, and these teams are almost polar opposites in terms of what they have done well this season. 

The Dream have hung their hat on the defensive end, ranking fourth in defensive rating, which is actually a bit of a slip from their early-season performance. Meanwhile, Minnesota ranks fifth in offensive rating (Atlanta is 11th), which is much better than their ninth-ranked defensive group. 

These teams also play at differing paces, with the Lynx slowing the game down (11th in pace) while Atlanta likes to play uptempo (third in pace). 

In their initial meeting this season in Atlanta, the Dream came away with an eight-point victory. With Moriah Jefferson trying to play through a knee injury for the Lynx, I see some value on Atlanta as a short favorite. 

The Lynx have just one win in their last five games, and it came against the Indiana Fever, who have lost 12 straight games. 

If Atlanta can bring its A-game on defense, it should be able to handle Minnesota. – Peter Dewey

Pick: Dream -1.5 vs. Lynx (-110)

Mystics vs. Wings Best Bets

The Mystics have the best defensive rating in the league, so why even consider an over play against Dallas?

Turns out, the Mystics aren't just a defensive juggernaut. Since the All-Star break, they rank fifth in offensive rating in the first half compared to eighth for the entire game. Meanwhile, their defensive rating falls from first to fourth in the first half.

As for Dallas, they're the third-best offensive rated team in the WNBA during the first half, trailing only the Las Vegas Aces and Connecticut Sun in the first 20 minutes.

Eventually, this game will slow down in the second half, but as long as the lines aren't adjusted for that, take advantage of a favorable number and back the over in the first half in Dallas. Ben Heisler

Pick: Mystics/Wings 1H OVER 79.5 (-110) 

Sparks vs. Mercury Best Bets

There's two ways to approach this matchup tonight. Either the Sparks come out and play with immediate urgency following the "contract divorce" from center Liz Cambage, or they roll over and the Mercury smoke them from the start.

I'm willing to back the former. Following the All-Star break, Phoenix has the second-worst defensive rating in the league. For a team like Los Angeles, who plays at the second highest pace in the first half of games, this should be a nice confidence booster to get their offense going.

I also expect the Sparks to get a little more chemistry going. With Cambage gone, Chiney Ogwumike will earn more playing time alongside her older sister Nneka, who continues to play at an exceptional level.

Perhaps the Mercury take control in the second half at home, but for now, I like L.A. early and will take them at plus-value. – Ben Heisler

Pick: Sparks 1H +2.5 (-115) vs. Mercury - DraftKings Sportsbook
