Friday's Best WNBA Bets

Connecticut Sun at Washington Mystics (-3.5, 155.5)


This game figures to have no shortage of offense.

The Sun have both the league’ fifth-best offense (77 ppg) and defense (73.9 ppg). But lately, the team has embraced scoring the basketball, as four of its past five games have gone over the total, including its past two.

Connecticut also is coming off a home game against Seattle on Thursday night, and figures to be more inclined to try to score, rather than dig in on defense.

Meantime, Washington has had no problem putting up points, as it also averages 77 points per game. The Mystics have seen seven of their past nine games top the number, with none going into overtime.

Pick: Over


Sacramento Monarchs at Los Angeles Sparks (-6, 139)

The Sparks likely won’t be a great team this year. But there is enough time left for them to become a good one, and that is just what they are playing like.

Los Angeles, which was bolstered by the recent return of Lisa Leslie from injury, has won three of its past five games, including a 59-56 win over the Monarchs in Sacramento earlier this month. The Sparks string of good play can be attributed to its improving offense.

The team is averaging a horrendous, 70.3 points per game, but has topped the 75-point mark in two of its past three games. The Monarchs, however, would love to see any kind of improvement. The team yields a staggering 79 points per game and has lost three of its past five.

Pick: Sparks
