Welcome to the return of WNBA Tips for the 2019 season.
I always need a lot of data prior to doing tips and so I wanted to take a couple of weeks from the season beginning to collect that data.
It’s still early days, but the system has one betting tip for todays game between the Los Angeles Sparks and the Minnesota Lynx.
Speaking of womens sports, I just want to mention that I am doing Women’s World Cup Tips over at BetSoccer.ca. It’s quite a challenge I must say not really knowing the teams. I spent a lot of time over May just getting caught up to speed with it all, and it’s fun watching the games and seeing how my analysis is based on little data and watching mostly highlights packages etc.
That’s enough about that – basketball time. Let’s get to it:
Minnesota Lynx vs LA Sparks Betting Tips:
The Minnesota Lynx come into this one as the top team in the West. A 4-1 record and 3-0 at home. That loss was on the road to the Seattle Storm who beat them 84-77.
Defense has been the name of the game for the Lynx and the only way you’re going to beat them it seems is if your shooting is spot on. The Storm were a whopping 59.3% from the floor in that game.
Lynx bounced back strong however in the game against Phoenix.
The Sparks are of course without Candace Parker however haven’t been doing too bad. They do have issues though and looked a mess against the Connecticut Sun. They just lack the cohesiveness in my opinion for this one and won’t be able to break the Lynx down.
Taking Lynx -2.5
Unfortunately our bad little run continues. I’ve looked through all the data and there’s really nothing off I am seeing.
As we enter the playoffs I’m not sure how many tips I’ll be doing. Usually focus on the regular season and skip the playoffs but I feel the urge to do it more this year due to the lack of tips all season long.
Tonight the system likes Mercury -7. Thinks they can win by potentially double digits.
SOrry quick one today Lynx +3
My apologies for no tips in the last few weeks.
June and July have just been crazy times for me. First of all I had launched my new soccer tips website and that took up a lot of my time with the World Cup.
Then I was out at my cottage for a couple of weeks and the internet there is practically non-existent. I was barely able to read WNBA recaps let alone actually watch a game so it meant I couldn’t keep up to date.
Then when back my mum and sister were visiting me from Scotland. So I was very busy with them.
THEN I had a huge backlog of work ha. So it’s just been a crazy time.
However I’m caught up now and have tried to watch as much WNBA action as I can so hopefully I can keep the tips folowing from here on out.
Mystics vs Sun Betting Tips:
The Mystics go into this one ahead of the Sun in the East with a 14-10 record to their 13-12. The Connecticut Sun are at home however they have struggled there recently. They seem to perform better on the road.
The Mystics are okay on the road and are coming into this one with momentum after a big 95-78 victory over the Liberty.
System likes Mystics to keep this to a score if not win. Mystics +5 is the play.
Dream vs Sparks Betting Tips:
This should be a hell of a game. The Dream are on an amazing run and come into this hot. The Sparks are struggling and stumbling at the moment as the battle for the first round bye intensifies.
System likes the Dream to continue this incredible run. Dream +4 is the play.
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.
