Friday’s best WNBA bets

Washington Mystics at Atlanta Dream

The WNBA’s only perfect team – in the standings and against the spread – is the Washington Mystics, who visit the Atlanta Dream on Friday night.

The surprising Mystics are 3-0 straight up and ATS, with two of the wins in road games at Connecticut and defending champion Detroit. New coach. Under bettors are loving that new coach Julie plank has the Mystics ranked third in the Dub in points against. They’ve cashed their wagers in all three Washington games this season.

The Mystics also lead the league in scoring margin at 8.0 but with scoring rookie Marissa Coleman out at least four weeks with an ankle injury, Washington may be leaning on its defense even more.

The Dream also have been a bit of a surprise, getting off to a 2-2 start (2-2 ATS). In its  inaugural season a year ago, Atlanta lost its first 17 games before winning two in a row.

The Dream are next-to-last in 3-point shooting at under 23 percent.

Pick: Under


Chicago Sky at Connecticut Sun

Sylvia Fowles goes for her third straight double-double Friday as the Chicago Sky visit the Connecticut Sun in the back end of a home-and-home series.

Chicago (3-1) improved to 3-0 at home (2-1 ATS) with Tuesday’s 78-75 win over Connecticut as Fowles had 17 points and 10 rebounds. She had 12 points and 15 boards in Sunday’s win over Seattle.

But Fowles had a season-low four rebounds in a season-opening 102-85 loss at Minnesota. This is Chicago’s first trip since.

The Sun (1-3) are 0-2 at home, averaging just 65 points at Mohegan Sun Arena. They were under the total in their first three games before Tuesday’s season-high output.

Pick: Chicago

Augustus out for the year    

The Minnesota Lynx announced that forward Seimone Augustus will miss the remainder of the 2009 WNBA season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in her left knee. A Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) study done yesterday revealed the extent of the injury, which occurred in the second quarter of Minnesota's game on Wednesday at Phoenix. The date for surgery has yet to be determined.

"This is an unfortunate situation for Seimone and we wish her a full recovery," said Lynx Executive Vice President Roger Griffith. "Seimone has been playing at an MVP level to start the season and has been our leader on the court. Knowing Seimone, she will work hard in her rehab efforts to get back on the court as soon as possible. In the interim, we have a tremendous amount of talent on this team and I am confident that the other players on our roster will step up and continue our early season success."

Augustus has appeared in all six Lynx games this season, averaging a team-high 21.0 ppg (third in the WNBA) and 4.2 rpg. In 105 career games with Minnesota, Augustus holds averages of 21.2 ppg and 3.9 rpg.
