It was a decent night to watch WNBA last night, with the best action coming in the Dream/Sky game.
We had the Sky +1.5 and unfortunately that didn’t work out. The two went in tied at the half 43-43 however the Dream managed to pull away and win the game 91-83. It was a big 14-4 run in the final quarter that killed that one for us as it was looking good up until then.
The Mercury beat the Stars in convincing fashion. They started off strong with a 25-13 1st quarter and that was all she wrote. Stars clawed their way back into it but ended up losing by 6 points.
In the final game of the night it was a great performance by Delle Donne but it wasn’t enough for the Mystics. They picked up their first loss of the season as the Sparks go 2-0 – both at home – in a 99-89 victory.
We turn our attention to tonights games as the Fever host the Sun and then the Wings host the Lynx.
Should be two good games. Let’s get to it:
Sun vs Fever:
This ones a bit too iffy for me to call. I really was not impressed with the Sun in their first performance of the season against the Dream. However they are the type of team that could bounce back very well and I could see them doing that here.
The Fever are tough to gauge at this point in the season obviously but I really felt defensively they were poor against the Mercury, while offensively they were very good. Whether their offense keeps ticking or their defense steps up it’s tough to say.
I’m too undecided on that one and there’s going to be no play for me there.
Lynx vs Wings:
I was really impressed by the Wings in their first game. They took apart the Mercury very well. They’re a young team and they’re going to be a team that upsets a lot of teams.
I’m going to back them tonight against the Lynx.
The line is Wings +9.5 and I’ve got to get on that. It just seems too high a line for them playing at home here. Watching that first game they look like they’ll battle all the way.
The Lynx are a damn solid team of course so it’s a big test for them. I can’t see them winning but I do believe they have what it takes to keep it close.
I’d probably bet the Wings in this one all the way down to +8. It’s the start of the season so remember fatigue can affect things – Lynx are just coming off a game on Thursday so may be a bit tired.
