New York Liberty vs. Connecticut Sun Odds & Prediction
|NY Liberty||+8 (-110)||N/A||Ov 165 (-110)|
|Connecticut Sun||-8 (-110)||N/A||Un 165 (-110)|
The struggling Liberty will be looking to snatch a road victory on Tuesday again the Sun. Despite the stellar play of Sabrina Ionescu, New York is just 9-15 this season which is good for fifth place in the Eastern Conference. They’ve also lost three in a row ahead of this contest, most recently getting blown out by 34 points last Thursday against the Aces. It was a very quiet night for the Liberty, with Ionescu struggling to get going. She had just nine points in 23 minutes of action while shooting a putrid 12.5% from the field (1 for 8). This game simply came down to a superior opponent putting a beating down on NY. Needless to say, Liberty will be looking to bounce back here.
The Sun is in the midst of a solid campaign, going 16-9. They’re just behind the Chicago Sky for the top spot in the East. However, Connecticut isn’t playing as well as of late, posting a 5-5 record in the last ten games. The Sun also faced Vegas recently and lost 91-83 on Sunday. Four of their five starters finished with at least 16 points apiece, with DeWanna Bonner leading the charge with 19 points. But, it wasn’t enough to take down Las Vegas. Turnovers really killed Connecticut, committing a whopping 22 of them. That turned into 33 points for the Aces.
The Liberty are 2-1 vs. Connecticut this season. That’s all the reason to take them to cover here in WNBA picks. It’s only a matter of time until they break out of this losing skid.
Pick: New York Liberty +8 (-110)
Atlanta Dream vs. Las Vegas Aces Odds & Prediction
|Atlanta Dream||+10.5 (-110)||N/A||Ov 171.5 (-110)|
|Las Vegas Aces||-10.5 (-110)||N/A||Un 171.5 (-110)|
Atlanta will be facing a tough test on Tuesday against the Aces. The Dream is currently three games below .500 at 11-14 and just ended a three-game losing streak on Sunday, taking down the Mercury by a score of 85-75. A fourth quarter where Atlanta outscored Phoenix 21-12 proved to be the difference-maker. Center Cheyenne Parker balled out in a big way, pouring in a team-high 21 points while also grabbing 12 rebounds. The Dream really shot the ball well, too, draining 44% of their triples and shooting nearly 50% from the field.
Las Vegas is rolling along this season, sitting at the top of the Western Conference with an 18-7 record. They’re already a favorite to win it all, and it’s understandable why. Becky Hammon’s squad is first in numerous categories, including PPG, pace, three-point percentage, and offensive rating. Heading into this contest, Vegas is also riding a three-game winning streak, defeating the Liberty in back-to-back games, then also the Sun on Sunday, one of their East foes. A’ja Wilson, Kelsey Plum, and Chelsea Gray all collected 20+ points apiece in the victory.
The Aces beat Atlanta by 23 points last time they met. Believe in them covering again here in WNBA picks.
Pick: Las Vegas Aces -10.5 (-110)
Indiana Fever vs. Los Angeles Sparks Odds & Prediction
|Indiana Fever||+8.5 (-110)||N/A||Ov 163..5 (-115)|
|Los Angeles Sparks||-8.5 (-110)||N/A||Un 163.5 (-105)|
The WNBA-worst Indiana Fever visit the Sparks on Tuesday as they look to end a brutal nine-game losing skid. It’s been a miserable couple of weeks for the Fever, who just can’t seem to break out of this rut. The closest game in the cold spell was just eight points. Most of these losses came by more than 10 points. Sunday was a 16-point defeat to the Seattle Storm on the road, scoring just 65 points in the process. It was a rather lackluster performance from Indiana, with only two of their starters finishing in double-figures. They’ve also won just two games away from home in 2022.
The Sparks are also hoping to end a losing run of three games here. At 10-14, LA is sitting in the fourth spot in the West. Los Angeles fell to the Sky by a score of 80-68 on Thursday, failing to recover from a putrid second quarter. There were a couple of bright spots offensively, though, with Nneka Ogwumike dropping 16 points. The entire first unit did their part with the exception of Kristi Toliver, who posted a goose egg.
It’s pretty tough to side with Indiana in WNBA picks when they’re in such awful shape. What I’m liking here, though, is the under-in points since both of these teams aren’t exactly the most electric on the offensive end.
Pick: Under 163.5 (-105)
