Las Vegas Aces vs Dallas Wings Odds & Prediction
|Las Vegas Aces||-7.5 (-110)||Ov 171 (-110)|
|Dallas Wings||+7.5 (-110)||Un 171 (-110)|
The surging Aces will be aiming to extend their two-game win streak on Wednesday afternoon in Dallas. Las Vegas is 9-1 in their last 10 games and have been absolutely destroying their opponents this season. Becky Hammon’s squad is coming off a big 89-72 victory over the Los Angeles Sparks on Saturday, who just recently fired head coach Derek Fisher. A’ja Wilson put in work down low, dropping a game-high 35 points while grabbing 11 rebounds. Three other scorers finished in double-digits, with Dearica Hamby and Kelsey Plum combining for 37 points.
Dallas is in a brutal skid right now, losing three in a row which has dropped them to 6-7 in the West, good enough for third place. Sunday was another defeat, this time at the hands of the Seattle Storm. The Wings actually dominated this contest in numerous areas, bodying Seattle on the boards and killing them in the paint, outscoring the Storm 46-26. But, their Western Conference rivals made it rain from deep, shooting 44%. They also fully capitalized off Dallas’s 19 turnovers, translating them into a whole 29 points.
The Wings and Aces already met on June 5th, with Plum’s 32 points propelling Vegas to victory. I have no doubts they will win this matchup again.
Pick: Las Vegas Aces to beat Dallas Wings.
Atlanta Dream vs Connecticut Sun Odds & Prediction
|Atlanta Dream||+9.5 (-110)||Ov 154 (-110)|
|Connecticut Sun||-9.5 (-110)||Un 154 (-110)|
Connecticut continues its four-game homestand on Wednesday night against the Dream. Atlanta will be looking to end a two-game losing streak, getting pummeled by the Storm and then losing a heartbreaker to Phoenix last Friday, 90-88. Rhyne Howard showed out for 25 points and Cheyenne Parker added 20, but there wasn’t much help for the frontcourt duo. The Dream did shoot the ball well though, draining 42% of their triples and 44% of their field goals. They did shot some grit as well, coming back from a 14-point deficit to pull within 89-88 with under 10 seconds remaining. Unfortunately, Atlanta just couldn’t score that final basket.
The Sun meanwhile are showing they’re one of the best teams in the WNBA. Connecticut is 7-3 in their previous 10 contests but Candace Parker and Chicago outclassed them on Friday, winning an 83-79 nailbiter. Brionna Jones led the charge with 20 points, while DeWanna Bonner posted 18. The Sun led for almost the entire game until the Sky outscored them 24-17 in the fourth quarter and ultimately sank a pair of late free throws that proved to be the difference-maker.
Connecticut destroyed the Dream on opening night by 16 points and also beat them by 20 in the meeting before that. This is a no-brainer pick.
Pick: Connecticut Sun to beat the Atlanta Dream.
Phoenix Mercury vs Indiana Fever Odds & Prediction
|Phoenix Mercury||pk (-110)||Ov 167.5 (-110)|
|Indiana Fever||pk (-110)||Un 167.5 (-110)|
Phoenix battles Indiana on Wednesday in a cross-conference matchup. The Mercury, who are still without star player Brittney Griner as she continues to be held hostage in Russia, have only gone 2-6 on the road in 2022. Vanessa Nygaard’s group is fresh off an 83-65 blowout loss to the Mystics on Tuesday but did collect three wins in a row prior. Washington honestly just overmatched Phoenix here, using their well-rounded offense to come out victorious. The Mercury did get some decent contributions though, with Diamond DeShields pouring in 21 points. Center Tina Charles also dropped 19 points and drained 5 of 9 three-pointers. But, four different players in the rotation posted goose eggs. That definitely didn’t help.
The Fever doesn’t have much to be happy about, sitting at the bottom of the East with a 4-12 record. However, they ended a five-game losing skid on Sunday with an important victory against the Minnesota Lynx. NaLyssa Smith was the star of the show, going off for 21 points and 14 rebounds to collect a double-double. It took some late-game heroics from Indiana, who went on an 11-4 run to finish the contest. The Fever outscored Minny 22-15 in the final quarter.
This will be the first meeting of the campaign between Phoenix and Indiana, but I honestly really like how the Fever played the other night, giving themselves some much-needed confidence. I believe they will keep it rolling and win another one.
Pick: Indiana Fever to beat the Phoenix Mercury.
