Today's WNBA best bets

New York Liberty at Los Angeles Sparks (-4.5, 136.5)


If the Sparks are going to make the playoffs, their push has to start now.

Los Angeles (7-11) is fifth in the Western Conference but even in the loss column with third-place Minnesota and fourth-place San Antonio. The top four teams make the playoffs.

Noelle Quinn understands the urgency. Quinn has had season highs in her last two games, scoring 13 points in a loss to San Antonio and 23 in an overtime win over Seattle, the first two games of a five-game homestand.

Averaging just 7.5 points per game, Quinn is picking up the slack with Lisa Leslie and Betty Lennox out with injuries and Candace Parker continuing to play her way into shape.

The game against the Liberty starts a stretch of three in a row against last-place teams for the Sparks, who are 4-2 straight up and against the spread at home.

The Liberty (7-14) changed coaches last week, replacing Pat Coyle with Anne Donovan prior to a five-game road trip. New York is 1-3 on the trip (2-2 ATS) and has lost the finale of its previous two trips this season.

Pick: Los Angeles


Sacramento Monarchs at San Antonio Silver Stars (-7, 152)

In Sacramento's last six games, the total has cleared the over five times by an average of better than 19 points. The only exception was a 59-56 loss to Los Angeles on Aug. 1.

In San Antonio's last eight games, the total has cleared the over seven times by an average of better than 17 points. The only exception was a 63-59 loss at Los Angeles on Aug. 4.

Those averages are certainly helped by Sacramento's 101-93 home overtime win over San Antonio on July 30, when the total line was 144.5 - and the teams surpassed it late in the third quarter.

In fact, these teams have exceeded the total in five of their last six meetings.

Pick: Over
