Connecticut Sun vs Chicago Sky Odds & Prediction
|Connecticut Sun||+4 (-105)||N/A||Ov 166 (-110)|
|Chicago Sky||-4 (-115)||N/A||Un 166 (-110)|
For the second time this month, the 13-6 Sun faces the 13-5 Sky. Connecticut is 7-3 in their last 10 games and sits in second place in the East behind Chicago, most recently beating Atlanta by a score of 72-61 on Sunday. Courtney Williams led the charge with a double-double, scoring 17 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. Alyssa Thomas and DeWanna Bonner also did their part, combining for 27 points. Despite shooting a putrid 10% from three-point land, the Sun managed to do a lot of their damage inside, outscoring the Dream 32-24 down low. That victory ended a two-game losing skid for Connecticut.
Chicago is absolutely rolling right now. They’re winners of three straight, beating the Aces, Sparks, and then the Lynx over the weekend. It was a down-to-the-wire contest though, with Courtney Vandersloot playing hero. The Sky PG drained a buzzer-beating three to win the game for her team and keep their hot streak going. She led all scorers with 18 points. In fact, the entire starting five finished in double figures.
I really like how the Sky are playing and they did beat Connecticut by exactly four points in early June. Take them to cover again.
WNBA picks: Chicago Sky to cover.
Indiana Fever vs Phoenix Mercury Odds & Prediction
|Indiana Fever||+7 (-110)||N/A||Ov 165.5 (-110)|
|Phoenix Mercury||-7 (-110)||N/A||Un 165.5 (-110)|
Indiana comes into Wednesday’s contest in very poor shape. They’ve lost two in a row and only won twice in their previous 10 games. Monday night was actually the front-end of a back-to-back between them and Phoenix, with the Mercury winning 83-71. Fever guard Kelsey Mitchell showed out for 22 points and Indiana shot 58% from long range, but it wasn’t enough to snap their cold streak.
The Mercury just part ways with their center Tina Charles, who ultimately signed with Seattle. But, her absence didn’t seem to hurt them on Monday. Diana Taurasi erupted for 27 points while scoring 21 from three-point land. Three other scorers finished in double-digits too, with Skylar Diggins-Smith continuing her impressive play with 17 points in the Phoenix backcourt. They’re now up to 8-12 and have won two straight games.
Phoenix simply looked like the superior team earlier this week against Indiana. With the Fever already losing twice to the Mercury in the last two weeks by more than the spread, all signs point to it happening again.
WNBA picks: Phoenix Mercury to cover.
Las Vegas Aces vs Seattle Storm Odds & Prediction
|Las Vegas Aces||+2 (-115)||N/A||Ov 166.5 (-110)|
|Seattle Storm||-2 (-105)||N/A||Un 166.6 (-110)|
The high-flying Aces will be looking to extend their lead at the top of the West on Wednesday. Vegas is 14-4, which is the best record in the WNBA, and are first in three-point percentage, rebounds, pace, and top two in several other notable categories. They put their talent on full display against the Sparks on Monday, with the superstar duo of Kelsey Plum and A’ja Wilson balling out in a big way. Plum had 29 points, five assists, and three rebounds in the win, absolutely picking apart the LA defense. Wilson meanwhile destroyed her opponents down low, posting 25 points and 11 boards. This game was truly all Wilson and Plum, though. The rest of the Aces’ rotation offered minimal production.
Seattle is on the come-up, going 6-4 in their last 10 games and sitting in second place in the Western Conference behind Las Vegas. Their two-game winning streak was snapped on Saturday though in an 85-77 loss to the Sparks. Breanna Stewart led the way with 28 points, but as a whole, this wasn’t a great performance from the Storm. They were outrebounded 41-26 on the boards and shot a measly 30% from beyond the arc while also committing 14 turnovers. On a more positive note, Seattle is 7-4 at home this season, which bodes well for this marquee matchup against the Aces.
The Storm is surprisingly a 2-point favorite here, despite falling 85-74 to Vegas earlier in the campaign. The visitors are 6-1 on the road and this spread is essentially just screaming take the Aces. Their stars are coming off a huge night and will be determined to keep it going.
