Seattle O’Sullivan 2022 WNBA Season so far: 117-82-2, +$206.41

(Yesterday: 2-1, +$1.76)

(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.)

Phoenix Mercury at Connecticut Sun, 7 pm Eastern

The Pick: Phoenix +10.5 (-123), bet $6.15 to win $5

I’ll pay a hefty price to get double digits, here. Phoenix, for all their chaos this year, is tied for the final playoff spot. I know, I barely believe it myself. However they got here, what that means is they’re not throwing in the towel. Connecticut has already clinched a spot and thus has less to play for. Making the playoffs (and then, seeding) will be what drives my thought process for picks until the postseason arrives.

Las Vegas Aces at Dallas Wings, 8 pm Eastern

The Pick: Dallas +8.5 (-112), bet $7.50 to win $6.70

(shrug) Home dog that has a lot more to play for than the favorite. As I’ve said over and over, Dallas needs every win it can get in order to solidify a playoff spot. Las Vegas has less to play for right now. The Wings’ point differential this season is only -0.2, and they actually give up fewer points per game than the Aces. Tonight’s game will be close enough.
