It was a winning night with my lone WNBA Tip last night as the Dallas Wings covered the 9.5 point spread against the Minnesota Lynx.
It didn’t look like it was going to come in for awhile. I was cursing myself after that first half where the Lynx were up 49-37. It was beginning to look real bad and I was concerned.
However I had anticipated a bit of fatigue for the Lynx and that seemed to set in. They couldn’t keep going at the pace they were going and the Wings pulled back into the game and actually almost won!
The other game of the day saw the Fever beat the Sun 81-79 in a tight one. The Fever needed a big 4th quarter to record their first win of the season.
Their offense really brought it to close out the game but they’ve got a lot of issues this season and it’s going to be a long season for Fever fans.
Today is Sunday, May 21st and there are two games today. The 0-2 Sky take on the 2-0 Dream, and the 1-1 Mystics take on the 1-1 Storm.
Here are my thoughts:
Sky vs Dream:
First game at home for the Dream. They won twice on the road against the Sky and Sun. The Sky of course lost to the Dream and the Lynx.
Surprisingly the Atlanta Dream are only 6 point favourites for this one. The sportsbooks are expecting a better performance from the Chicago Sky.
The thing is that everything is clicking for the Dream at the moment. I was actually on the wrong side of that one the other night as I went with the Sky +1.5. I was concerned about the roster upheaval and it was evident that the team just weren’t fully clicking.
Hard to say if that’s going to be the case today. They’ve played together once now and have had a couple of games practise. I do think they’ll keep it tight.
In saying that I always like to bet a hot team. The Dream didn’t even have Henry-Morello on Friday and still got that win. That’s pretty impressive. I’ve got to take Dream -6 here.
Mystics vs Storm:
This should be a fun game as we’re going to see some big producers in play like Delle Donne and Jewell Lloyd.
A good sign that my betting system is on its way is that it predicts the total of this game to be 166 points. The total for this game? 166.5.
This is a tricky one but the Mystics have the best offensive rating so far this season. While they’ve got a solid defense I like to think the Storm can get by them.
I’d probably go with the Over 166.5 in this game.
