May 23rd, 2017 WNBA Betting Tips

No tips today.

There will be some days during the season where I don’t have any actual tips. Rather than skip those days I’ll do write ups and give my thoughts.

That way you get some additional analysis despite there being no actual tips.

Then if you’re looking to bet maybe it’ll help you cement your decision or maybe the opposite – you’ll read something I say and it’ll make you decide not to bet it.

Whenever I do that I’ll open the article with “No tips today”. That way you’ll know there’s just analysis from me and no actual tips.

Speaking of tips I expect another week and the computer system will be able to make predictions. Just needs a bit more data and some fine tuning of the algorithm.

Right – two WNBA games today. Let’s get to my thoughts:

Sun vs Lynx:

I mean obviously I like the Lynx here but they’re 12.5 point favourites. That’s just a bit too much for me.

They had a great performance against Dallas who are going to be a fun team to watch this season. They should have no problems beating the Sun.

I’d probably lean towards the Sun on this one to be honest. They’ve kept their two games close so far. However they could get a thumping here and I’m not sure how they’ll respond.

So I’d lean towards the points but I’ll stay away.

Mercury vs Liberty:

The New York Liberty go into this one as two point underdogs.

What’s really putting me off this game is the absense of a player on either side.

The New York Liberty will be missing Brittany Boyd. That’s a big loss for them.

The Phoenix Mercury will be missing Diana Taurasi who is on suspension for a game.

So both of those make it really iffy for me. Especially at this stage of the season. I mean later on in the season you get to see how a team functions and you can look at them missing a player and know how it will affect them – positively or negatively.

This early in the season it’s just too iffy for me.

Should be a close game I think but the missing players put me off betting either side.
