Seattle Storm at Chicago Sky, 9 pm Eastern
The Pick: Chicago -4.5 (-114), bet $5 to win $4.39
Chicago’s offense is just a bit more high-powered that Seattle’s. The Sky average 86.2 points per game to the Storm’s 80.7. Plus, don’t discount Sky star Candace Parker’s desire to make sure everyone knows that she, not Storm guard Sue Bird, is the best player on the floor. Parker rises up for big games and though both teams are already playoff-bound, she’ll want to assert her dominance tonight.
Atlanta Dream at Las Vegas Aces, 10 pm Eastern
The Pick: Atlanta +11.5 (-112), bet $5 to win $4.46
Atlanta beat Las Vegas by 16 back on July 19, and while I do think Las Vegas will want to avenge that loss, I don’t think they can just have their way with an improved Dream squad. The Aces should win tonight, but Atlanta is not a bad team anymore. They won’t just roll over here.
Connecticut Sun at Los Angeles Sparks, 10:30 pm Eastern
The Pick: Connecticut -8 (-114), bet $5 to win $4.40
After their game against the Washington Mystics, the Los Angeles Sparks were forced to spend Sunday night in the airport when their flight was cancelled. While I certainly feel this is an obstacle and will hinder the Sparks getting proper rest, it’s also a mental hindrance, because Los Angeles players have spent the last two days complaining about it. Whether you feel all WNBA teams should have charter jets or not (and I’ve no interest in debating it, frankly), this is a distraction. Los Angeles is battling for a playoff spot and spent the last 48 hours on social media talking about airports. That’s not focus.
