WNBA News and Notes Sunday 8/23

Sunday's Best WNBA Bets

San Antonio Silver Stars at Detroit Shock (pick, 150.5)


The Shock and Silver Stars are meeting for the first time since last year's WNBA Finals. Given how both teams have looked this year, that seems like an eternity.

Both are in danger of missing the playoffs and are headed in the wrong direction.

The Shock's situation has more urgency. Detroit (9-14) has lost three straight games and is sixth in the Eastern Conference, 2.5 games out of the final postseason spot.

The Silver Stars (11-5) have dropped two in a row and are fifth in the West, one-half game out of the final playoff berth.

In the last 10 meetings, the road team has won seven times and the total has been under seven times.

Pick: San Antonio

Los Angeles Sparks at Atlanta Dream (-2.5, 152.5)

The Sparks and Dream are the two hottest teams in the league right now.

The Sparks have won a season-high four in a row and are doing it with defense. Now that Lisa Leslie and Candace Parker are both healthy and playing well, Los Angeles has held opponents to just 36.2 percent shooting during its streak, keeping the total under in all four games.

The Dream haven't been too shabby, either, winning three in a row and seven of eight, both straight up and against the spread. Atlanta is doing it with offense, averaging 90.8 points during its hot streak and totaling at least 80 points in every game to move past Minnesota for second in the league in scoring.

Pick: Los Angeles +2.5
