Tuesday WNBA Research
Houston vs. Phoenix
Over 70% are riding the Phoenix Mercury here but they have simply fallen off the face of the earth due to some injuries, Phoenix has beat this team the last 5 times they have played but Houston is playing much better basketball right now having won 8 of their last 10 including on the road outright at Minny and San Antonio. Cappie Poindexter is listed as questionable for the Mercury and they have lost their last 2 ballgames by a combined total of 21 points - I think the public might get buried here and Houston has a great shot at winning this game outright. Wouldn't be surprised if this game went to houston's favor by going under as well.
Indiana vs. Washington
Indiana beat this team by 11 at home earlier this year, they are a 60% favorite coming in, Washington has lost their last 3 ballgames but did beat the Sparks on the road and won at Houston and Chicago so they do have some bite, Indiana has won just 2 ballgames on the road all year, Washington has been putting up a lot of points lately, so I would not be surprised to see them as an active small dog here, in fact, I think they likely pull the upset at home here as Washington did play very well against San Antonio and fell short late. I don't know if Indiana has it in them to win such a ballgame on the road like Becky Hammon and company did. Give Washington the revenge angle to and Indiana off of a let down winning over Conn.
Connecticut vs. Detroit
Conn was probably looking ahead and consequently that's why they lost to Indiana on the road as they now play the Shock on the road again. These teams have split the season series, Conn and Detroit both come off losses on the road so they are irritated, Elaine Powell is still out for Detroit and they are 1-4 ATS without here, Conn is usually very solid off a loss and they have the revenge from a 9 point loss in their last contest, although they are even in the series at 1-1 here, small lean on Conn here, a lean on the under as well as Conn typically responds well after a terrible defensive effort such as against Indiana giving up 81 points.
New York vs. San Antonio
New York might just be the most unpredictable team in the WNBA as they have been on a ATS win and then ATS loss streak for roughly the pass 7 games. Their ATS streak goes as follows: W,L,W,P,W,L,W.
Their most recent win was on the road outright against the Sparks, but recent trends show that they are likely to have a let down here, the Stars however have won 8 of their last 10 and their only 2 straight up losses in the last 10 games is against Houston twice, having said that, the Stars only beat Sacramento by just 1 point at home. No real lean here as I can see it go either way.
Seattle vs. Sacramento
Seattle beat this team by 12 at home earlier this year, Seattle beat Minny, Sacramento and Washington at home as they covered very easily at home in those 3 contests and frankly dominated those teams, Seattle is just 1-6 on the road though and although they have shown some life they have been unable to close on the road. Keep in mind that Sacramento has revenge as well in this game and they come off a tough Texas road trip losing by a combined total of 9 points to the Comets and Silver Stars. I wouldn't be surprised to see Sacramento bounce-back here and pick up the win at home with some revenge in front of their home fans after a tough road trip.
