WNBA News and Notes Wednesday 9/9

Wednesday's Best WNBA Bet

Detroit Shock at Minnesota Lynx (PK, 160)

The WNBA playoffs are approaching. Sometimes it's easy to tell which teams are aware of that.

The Shock were 9-14 on Aug. 21 but have won seven of their last eight games (6-1-1 against the spread) to climb from sixth to third in the Eastern Conference. The Lynx were 10-7 on July 27 but have lost 11 of their last 14 games (4-9-1 ATS) to fall from second to fifth in the Western Conference.

The Shock are 3-1 without second-leading scorer Katie Smith, who remains sidelined with a back injury. The Lynx are 9-16 without leading scorer Seimone Augustus, who has been out since June with a knee injury.

The Shock have made the playoffs every year since 2003. The Lynx have missed the playoffs every year since 2005.

Detroit has won six of the last eight meetings, all of which have seen the total go over.

Pick: Detroit. The over is worth a look as well.
