I apologize that there hasn’t been any WNBA tips in awhile. The reason is that there really hasn’t been anything that the betting system has liked lately.
I was hoping for a lot more quantity of tips but the odds seem to be pretty sharp these days. I’ve tried to tweak the system a fair bit to get more picks however that’s just produced negative results so I’m just going to keep it as is.
I was hoping once the system had enough data I could rely on that for the tips solely however that’s not going to be the case so I’ll just have to keep giving my personal opinions on tips.
So it’s Saturday, June 11th and there’s three games on the board today.
Here are my thoughts on these:
Storm @ Liberty:
Liberty are 3.5 point favourits in this one.
I have to admit I’ve been very impressed with the run at home by the New York Liberty today. I’m also questioning the Seattle Storms mentality after their performance against the Fever. That was a bad lead to lose and yo have to wonder if complacency is going to be an issue.
The Storm have only played three times on the road with losses in two of them. Their lone win was against the Stars who are 0-9 this season so not exactly an achievement.
I’ve got to think with that poor road form and some solid performances at home that the Liberty will wrap this one up. I’m going to take Liberty -3.5 here.
Fever @ Mystics:
Bad news for the Mystics with Delle Donne questionable. They were blown away by the Lynx last time out and that has to have been a tough one for them especially because it killed their perfect home record.
If Delle Donne is out that’s a big loss but I’ve often saw teams with that loss band together. The Fever are 5.5 point underdogs.and have started to string a few good performances together.
Unfortunately the Fever are 0-4 on the road. I have to admit I’m very tempted to go with the Fever but I’m going to hold off right now. They just haven’t been competitive on the road at all and the Delle Donne question mark has me staying away.
Lynx @ Wings:
The Lynx are in full beast mode and are hoping for it to continue as they take on the Wings. The bookies have them as 10 point favourites despite being on the road. That’s because they have blown away almost every team other than two tight games.
One of those tight games was actually against the Wings when they won 89-87.
I almost feel like a sucker this season because I dig the Wings and I look for reasons to bet them.
I just think this point spread is too much. Dallas are also honouring Nancy Lieberman today and small things like that can often push a team.
I’m taking Wings +10.
Man – feels good to write about WNBA gain.
