WNBA Sunday: O'Sullivan picks Chicago Sky at Seattle Storm, likes the Storm to wake up as playoffs near
So the Dallas Wings lost last night, frittering away a 16-point halftime lead to the Washington Mystics, falling behind by seven when Arike Ogunbowale received an, ahem, “ill-advised” technical foul with 34.9 seconds left, a complete disaster, ensuring a horrible, horrible Wings loss…except Ogunbowale then hit a meaningless three-pointer at the buzzer to cut the lead to a single point…”meaningless” to everyone except for me (and hopefully you), who had Dallas +2 in a solitary bet and a three-team parlay. It’s the happiest I’ve been since my kids were born*. My tumultuous relationship with the Dallas Wings continues…
*I don’t have any children.
Seattle O’Sullivan so far: 96-82-1
Chicago Sky at Seattle Storm, 6 pm Eastern
The Pick: Seattle -250, Seattle -5.5 (-114)
Okay, let’s try this again. The Sky upset the Storm on Friday night 73-69 and cost me (and hopefully you – wait, no hopefully not you) a lot of money. So I’m fully expecting Seattle to make up for that insult. Seriously, they should’ve won Friday – they were up most of the game until Chicago overtook them with less than three minutes left. Yes, yet another blown lead that hurt my gambling – but after a meaningless three-pointer helped me get a cover last night, I’ll mute my complaining a bit. As we wind down the regular season, it’s less about stats than it is about the playoff picture. If Seattle doesn’t mind their step, they could fall to the fourth seed. They’re not going to let that happen. The Storm moneyline is the meal, the cover is the dessert. Eat up.
