WNBA News and Notes Sunday 8/30

Sunday's Best WNBA Bets

Chicago Sky at New York Liberty (-3.5, 146.5)


The bottom-feeding Liberty would love to play the role of spoiler during the final games of the WNBA season.

New York is in last place (11-17) and is coming off a loss to the Sky Friday. Chicago is fighting for its first-ever playoff berth, currently sitting in fourth place in the Eastern Conference.

The Sky have struggled without injured star center Sylvia Fowles but got a big boost from reserve Kristi Toliver, who scored 25 points off the bench in Friday’s win. Fowles’ status for Sunday is unknown.

New York could miss their starting center as well Sunday. Janel McCarville has missed the past two games for the Liberty due to a sprained left ankle. She puts up almost 13 points and grabs six rebounds per game this season.

Pick: Chicago

Connecticut Sun at Los Angeles Sparks (-4.5, 146)

The Los Angeles Sparks had their seven-game winning streak snapped by the Phoenix Mercury Thursday night. However, they were missing one of their biggest stars.

Reigning MVP Candace Parker could not play due to “personal reasons” but told the media she would be in action against the Sun Sunday.

“I needed to be at home," she told reporters after practice Saturday. "I appreciate the Sparks' organization for understanding and for being there."

Parker was mired in a bit of a slump this season, following the birth of her first child. But in recent games, the forward was finding her form, averaging over 20 points in her past three contests. On the year, Parker is scoring just over 12 points per game.

Pick: Los Angeles
