O'Sullivan's Thursday WNBA Pick: Mystics vs Liberty – With Delle Donne resting, New York looks for another win
Last night I was watching the superb ESPN 30 for 30 documentary, Dream On, and I noticed in her interview, stellar former point guard and current stellar coach Dawn Staley was wearing a t-shirt that read, "Bet on women." A terrific and important sentiment, to be sure, but I'm way ahead of you, Dawn. I went 2-1 last night, in fact.
Seattle O’Sullivan 2022 WNBA Season so far: 53-37, +$107.79
(Yesterday: 2-1, +$6.94)
(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.)
Washington Mystics at New York Liberty, 7 pm Eastern
The Pick: New York +4.5 (-110), bet $7.50 to win $6.82
I have four words for you: Elena Delle Donne is out. Is that five words? Since she joined the team in 2017, the Washington Mystics are 66-29 when Delle Donne plays, and 28-43 when she doesn’t. They were 12-20 without her all of last season. So here are five words: The Mystics need Delle Donne Not to mention, New York just beat Washington two weeks ago, 74-70, in Washington, when Delle Donne played. So the Liberty know they can beat the Mystics with or without her. Finally, while I wouldn’t argue New York is on fire or anything, they have won four of their last six, and are 5-1 ATS in their last six. That’s nice, but this is more about the Mystics resting their best player. I’ll take the home dog here.
