WNBA News and Notes Saturday 9/5

Saturday's Best WNBA Bets

Seattle Storm vs. Minnesota Lynx (pick, 153)


The good news for the Seattle Storm is they only need one more win to tie up home-court advantage. The bad news is they’ll have to do it without their top player, Lauren Jackson.

Jackson has been out the past three games with a back injury and it finally caught up with the Storm in their most recent effort. Seattle fell to Washington 78-67, which ended a six-game winning streak and a six-game undefeated streak against the spread.

Sue Bird has been filling in with over 17 points per game in Jackson’s absence but the Lynx aren't her favorite kitties. Bird scored just seven points combined in the last two meetings with Minnesota.

Pick: Minnesota pick

Atlanta Dream vs. Phoenix Mercury (-4.5, 190)

You've got to love the WNBA sometimes. By early Friday afternoon, oddsmakers had already set a line for this game, even though Atlanta was scheduled to play Sacramento Friday night.

You’d never see that in the NBA. What you do see, however, is an total of 190.

That is an absolutely staggering total by lady ball standards and the highest number that either team has seen this season. The reason?

The last seven games have jumped over the total for Atlanta heading into Friday night’s game and three of the last four have gone over for the Mercury. They also happen to be the two highest scoring teams in the league by a decent margin.

Pick: Over 190
