Well after a great start, we’ve came up against a few road bumps unfortunately. Just have to keep going and hope it all works out.
The last I’d heard was that Tiffany Hayes was playing for the Dream against the Liberty so that was a disappointing one. She’s a big loss and the system likes the Dream tonight….but not with Hayes not in the line-up. Even if she is she’ll be banged up still I expect.
Let’s get on with tonight:
Mercury vs Lynx Betting Tips:
The leagues hottest team are the Phoenix Mercury and they host the defending champions tonight in the Minnesota Lynx.
The Lynx come into this one on the back of some much better performances. They’ll need a better performance after losing to the Mercury 95-85 on the first of the month.
System thinks Mercury -2.5. It does predict this to be a very tight one however.
Sorry for no tips Sunday. I partied a but too hard Saturday night and Sunday was a day for napping in between World Cup games.
we’re back today with a busy evening in the WNBA with 5 games on the board and two betting tips.
Let’s get to it:
Liberty vs Dream Betting Tips:
Both teams will want to put the weekend behind them after two very disappointing games. The Dreams offensive woes popped up again as they were crushed by the Fever.
That was a disappointing defensive performance from them but I hope for better in this one. I think they’ll bounce back strong.
The Liberty haven’t looked good at all this season and their defense isn’t good – the Dream should be able to score more here. Their offense isn’t doing well too and they have been blown out twice in a row now.
System likes Dream +4.5.
Sparks vs Fever Betting Tips:
This is one that concerns me a bit but the system likes Fever +13.5.
I did enjoy their performance over the Dream and I’m hoping that isn’t a fluke. In saying that they have been a lot better since the opening 3 games of the season and are starting to click.
The Sparks are a damn good team but the system thinks the Fever keep it close enough. Let’s hope!
3-1 after a loss by 1 point yesterday.
Too busy today for write up – Liberty +7.5
3-0 start to the WNBA season!
Fever +10 was the play yesterday and it came through relatively easy with a 72-67 finish for the Atlanta Dream. They only covered by 5 points and so we were able to pick up our third win in a row.
Quick note that those early games are killer and I apologize if the e-mail didn’t come out till late.
Basically the odds don’t become widely available until around 10:30am-11am EST. At that point I have to run my simulations and see if it’s worth betting/tipping.
At that point I make the post however the way my mailing server is set up sucks – it basically only has a window of when I can send the tips outs.
So at 11:30am EST I schedule it to send “anywhere between 12pm-2pm”. And it’ll go within that two hour window.
Usually it comes out right away but it just depends how many are in the queue and it can take longer to get to some people.
So if there’s an early game on just be sure to check the website beforehand. I’ll have it posted there if there is something.
For reference today I’ve posted this one at 12:30pm EST and scheduled it between 1pm-3pm EST so see what time it comes to your inbox.
Let’s see if we can continue the good run:
Aces vs Wings Betting Tips:
It’s been a great road trip for the Aces so far this season and we’ll be backing them to keep the run going and throw in one big last effort as they take on the Dallas Wings.
The Wings come into this with the bad news still looming about the season endign injury of Karima Christmas-Kelly.
The Wings will be shook about that and they’re going to have to change some things around. Going to be interesting seeing how they utilize Kayla Thornton going forward.
Anyway system likes Aces +9.
2-0 start to the WNBA season with the tips which is nice.
Todays game kicks off at 11:30am EST so gotta get these out quick. Hopefully you see this in time. Or if it loses – hopefully you missed out on it!
Fever +10 is the play.
It felt great yesterday as we got off to a winning start going 1-0.
Regardless of what goes on during the season I always feel the pressure on that first game.
We had Mercury +2 and they won 75-72. It was a bit nervy at times but they had a great huge 4th quarter even with Griner fouling out.
A good night of action overall. Fever go 0-6 at home after an OT lose to the Aces. That was great and a fun game.
I’m hoping the Aces can carry the momentum in tonight with tonights tip:
Aces vs Liberty Betting Tips:
This is the second time the Aces are playing a B2B this season. Last time they got a huge W over the Mystics 85-73.
They go into this one with a 10 point handicap.
These two teams are yet to play this season but it’ll be interesting for Liberty fans seeing Bill Laimbeer on the other side of things.
A’ja Wilson had an exceptional performance last night and I’m hoping for more from her. She’s really rocking.
Aces blew a lead last night so you have to hope for more consistency tonight.
Not too impressed with the Liberty at the moment. That win over the Fever was ugly and they should never have went down the stretch like that – game should have been done and dusted and I’m not too impressed with them.
Let’s hope they remain sluggish tonight and the Aces carry the momentum.
System likes Aces +10.
I apologize for no WNBA Tips yet this season. I’ve just been absolutely swamped preparing for the World Cup.
I just recently launched BetSoccer.ca and that has been taking up so much of my time.
Going through and studying everything and watching the friendlies and qualifiers etc. Then writing tips for all the opening games.
Basically the work involved in that meant I wasn’t able to focus on the WNBA so I held off on that until I had time.
I’m all caught up and now statistically I’m able to handle the WNBA and hey we’ve got betting action tonight!
Dallas Wings vs Phoenix Mercury Betting Tips:
The Mercury are on a roll with a 5 game win streak but it’s a big test tonight as they face the Dallas Wings.
These two teams played on the 18th and the Mercury at home beat the Wings 86-78. The Mercury have been solid on the road and that’s where their winning streak began as they beat the Lynx, Dream and Liberty all on the road.
Lot of hot players coming into this one for the Mercury such as Brittney Griner who almost got a trible double last time out.
System likes Mercury to log another W. It is a bit hesitant due to the Wings performances at home thus far though. That’s why I generally like to wait for a lot of data but I think Mercury +2 is fine.
I’ll be honest I am not feeling super confident simply for lack of data so it’s your call if you want to back it or not – maybe just do a half unit bet that’s what I am doing.
The WNBA season is almost upon us.
The 2018 WNBA season returns this Friday, May 18th. It features Mercury vs Wings as the opening game.
I will be returning to do WNBA Tips this year. Been getting a lot of e-mails asking so just want to confirm that yep I will be.
As always my betting system needs to grab data from the first few games so it’ll be a week or two before I actually provide tips.
Hopefully we’ll have more tips than last season. Last year we only had 21 tips. However it ended up being a great year as we ended up going 14-7 for a sick 66.7% win ratio. While I’d like to see the quantity increase – I still prefer quality over quantity.
So yes just a quick note that I will be back very soon! Oh and yes the tips will be free again this season.
Well the WNBA Playoffs are upon us. It was a solid regular season with the picks despite a lack of quantity. The WNBA betting system went 14-7 for an impressive 66.7% win ratio – the same win ratio we had in 2016.
I do wish we could have more picks but it is what it is – we’ve got winners and that’s all that matters.
I haven’t had much luck with the betting system when it comes to the playoffs in the past. So it will mostly be my personal opinion while using the betting system as a base.
Two Game 1s tonight. The Mystics host the Wings and the Mercury host the Storm. In terms of futures, the Mystics are +1200 and the Wings +5000 to win the Championship while the Mercury are +1600 and the Storm +3300.
The Wings go into their game as +5.5 point underdogs while the Storm are getting 4.5 points.
Looking at the Mystics vs Wings game – I’d say the Mystics are the better team by far. However they’re in the playoffs more due to their overall season form as opposed to their form in the latter quarter of the season.
The Wings were poor on the road but went 2-0 in games against Washington this season.
I personally think I’ll go with Wings +5.5. The big thing for me was that the return of Delle Donne didn’t change things for the Mystics like it should have. I think the Wings can at least keep this one close and having beaten Washington both times this season, they’ve got to be confident. When you have that type of confidence it can keep you in a game – knowing you can beat them.
A fun stat in the Mercury vs Storm game is in their 3 previous meetings, where the Mercury won twice, the road team won every time.
I feel Mercury are the better team but I’m not fully convinced. Britney Griner is going to be in beast mode here so its tricky. I do think the Mercury will win but I’m not sure they’ll cover. I’m staying away from this one.
