Seattle O’Sullivan 2022 WNBA Season so far: 1-4, -$33.19

(Standing Caveat: The universe is chaotic. Life is unpredictable. Things happen. Like injuries. And COVID protocols. In following Seattle O’Sullivan’s betting advice, be advised that you should always monitor your bets during the day to make certain unforeseen things have not occurred which might change your wagering opinion. Thank you.)

Connecticut Sun at New York Liberty, 6 pm Eastern

The Pick: Connecticut -6.5 (-106), bet $10.60 to win $10

New York has a new coach, Sandy Brondello, who comes over from Phoenix, and that should help the Liberty exceed last year’s disappointing performance. But Connecticut knows they blew a chance to be champions last year. The Sun were the WNBA’s best team all season before stumbling to a Chicago Sky team that, while peaking at the right time, were not as talented or as good. Connecticut will be on a mission this season to avenge that disappointing loss. The Sun have too much talent, with Jonquel Jones a prime candidate for MVP. They’ll start this season off with a message to the rest of the league.

Atlanta Dream at Dallas Wings, 8 pm Eastern

The Pick: Atlanta +6.5 (-104), bet $10.40 to win $10

Atlanta had a terrible season last year, both on and off the court. But they let Courtney Williams, suspended after a fight outside a nightclub, go to Connecticut, and picked Rhyne Howard with the #1 selection in the 2022 draft. They might not be much better than last year, but it is a fresh start. Dallas, on the other hand, comes off a frustrating season of their own, and has a current suspension - Satou Sabally, for personal reasons - to start this year. The Wings proved last year they can score, but didn’t defend well enough to make a big dent in the playoffs, and without Sabally their frontcourt will have trouble handling Howard. I think this is an uneven game that stays close.
