Seattle Storm vs Indiana Fever Odds & Prediction
|Seattle Storm||-11 (-110)||N/A||Ov 158.5 (-110)|
|Indiana Fever||+11 (-110)||N/A||Un 158.5 (-110)|
The Storm is in the midst of a solid campaign, sitting in second place in the West with a 13-8 record. While they’re just 4-4 away from home in 2022, Seattle is 7-3 in their last 10 games. This is a very good offensive team, ranking third in three-point percentage and second in assists, but it’s their second-best defensive rating that really stands out. That being said, the Storm didn’t play like their usual selves on Sunday, losing 90-76 to the Atlanta Dream. That was only the third time this season they allowed more than 90 points, with Dream forward Cheyenne Parker torching them for 21 points. Breanna Stewart led the way offensively for Seattle, pouring in 19 points. But, she got minimal help, with no other scorer finishing in double-figures in this contest. The Storm was outrebounded 44-30 on the boards and never had a lead. The squad definitely needs a bounce-back performance here.
The Fever is the worst team in the league at 5-17 and frankly can’t find any type of rhythm. Indiana is losers of four in a row and has just two wins to show for in their last 10 contests. Their last game was actually a defeat to Seattle, falling 73-57. The Fever’s attack was absolutely lifeless, with Queen Egbo’s 14 points and 12 rebounds the lone bright spot. Every other scorer finished below 10 points as Indy shot a brutal 34% from the field and only 24% from downtown.
It’s hard to ever take the Fever in these WNBA picks. Seattle is just a far better team and should have no problem taking care of business here. However, the spread is quite big. It could be closer.
Pick: Indiana Fever ATS +11 (-110)
Connecticut Sun vs Dallas Wings Odds & Prediction
|Connecticut Sun||-5 (-110)||N/A||Ov 164.5 (-110)|
|Indiana Fever||+5 (-110)||N/A||Un 164.5 (-110)|
Connecticut is one of the favorites to win the WNBA title this season alongside Las Vegas and for good reason. They have four different players averaging more than 13 points per night, with Jonquel Jones leading the group with 14.9 points, nine rebounds, and 1.8 dimes while shooting 35% from deep. The Sun is also fresh off a thrilling overtime victory vs. Washington on Sunday, coming back from 17 points to grab their 14th victory. Alyssa Thomas took over in the second half for Connecticut, scoring 14 of her 23 points in the final two quarters in a truly impressive display. Although the Mystics did commit nine turnovers in the fourth and scored only seven points in the period, the Sun did put the clamps on defensively while scoring bucket after bucket. There really wasn’t any glaring strength on the stat sheet that stood out here, it simply came down to Connecticut coming together as a collective unit and contributing. Four of their five starters finished in double digits, with the backcourt of Courtney Williams and Natisha Heideman showing out for 29 points and nine assists combined.
Dallas was hovering around .500 until their recent cold streak. They’ve dropped their last three games to the Mercury, Lynx, and most recently, the Sparks. The Wings put up a respectable fight on Friday and shot 50% from the field, but LA’s first unit proved to be too efficient on this night. For Dallas, guard Arike Ogunbowale continued her terrific season, scoring a team-high 23 points in 31 minutes of action. Backcourt partner Marina Mabrey also contributed 17. This defeat gave the Wings a 4-7 record on their home floor heading into Tuesday’s matchup against Connecticut.
The Sun did beat Dallas 99-68 in their last meeting in May but just days prior, the Wings were the victorious one, winning by eight points. Connecticut has a respectable record on the road (6-4) and they’re clearly playing better basketball at the moment. Go with the favorite to cover the spread here in the WNBA picks.
