Hi everyone,

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
