WNBA News and Notes Friday 8/28

Friday's Best WNBA Bets

Sacramento Monarchs at Minnesota Lynx (-2.5, 161.5)


The Monarchs’ postseason hopes were resuscitated after the club reeled of wins in four of five games. The hot streak came to an end against the Dream Tuesday night. Sacramento never led and Atlanta was able to get just about whatever it wanted offensively.

“We reverted back to where we were,” Monarchs coach John Whisenant told the Sacramento Bee. “We can’t play like that. We scored enough points. We just didn’t slow them down at all.”

Defense has been Whisenant’s sole focus since taking over the head coaching job last month. Look for Sacramento to regain its defensive swagger in Minnesota tonight.

The Lynx, who were a game above .500 at the start of the month, have dropped nine of their last 10.

Pick: Under

New York Liberty at Chicago Sky (-2, 145)

It’s been a rough few days for the Sky. The squad got run over by a hot Sparks team and lost another one at home to the disappointing Shock.

Sky center Sylvia Fowles has missed the last three games (all Chicago losses) and it’s still up in the air whether she’d be back for Friday’s tilt against New York.

The Liberty, meanwhile, have won three of their last four and are 5-2-1 against the spread in their last eight games.

Pick: Liberty
