WNBA Betting: The League’s Best and Worst Wagers

We’re about to come into a little bit of a lull in the summer sports betting calendar. The Euros have come and gone, Wimbledon is nearing its end, the MLB All-Star break is just around the corner, and the London Olympics are still weeks away.

So, there isn’t a better time to dig into some WNBA betting – if you’re into that sort of thing.

Here’s a brass-tacks look at what you might have missed as we close in on the midway point of the WNBA season.

All stats compiled before Wednesday's action.

Best team against the spread: San Antonio Silver Stars- 10-3 ATS


At 8-5 straight up, the Silver Stars sit in third place in the West, trailing Los Angeles and the league-leading Minnesota Lynx. But San Antonio is second to none among bettors. With Sophia Young filling up the stat sheet and the Silver Stars averaging 81.9 points per game, the club has been held to fewer than 80 points just once in the last seven games.

Worst team against the spread: New York Liberty – 5-9 ATS

The Liberty sit second from the bottom in the East, ahead of only the 3-10 Washington Mystics. New York averages only 71.4 points per game (10th) while allowing 80.1 points per contest (ninth) and is 2-4 both straight up and against the spread over its last six. Cappie Pondexter, a 5-foot-9 guard, is the club’s most dangerous weapon. She averages 18.8 points per game, but even that is her second lowest average in the last seven years.

Best over team: Minnesota Lynx – Over/under 10-5

After setting a WNBA record with 10 straight wins to start a season, the Lynx have slipped a bit lately. They are still 13-2 straight up, but both of those losses have come in the last five games and the Lynx have covered just once over that stretch. They keep on cashing for over bettors though, with each of their last four playing above the total. With four players scoring in double figures, the Lynx average a league-best 85.4 points per game.

Best under team:  Atlanta Dream – Over/under 5-10

Outside of Angel McCoughtry, who leads the league scoring 22.6 points per game, the Dream just don’t have much in the cupboard. They sit in the middle of the pack in most significant team offensive and defensive statistics. When it comes to under bets, take a long look at them when they’re playing at home. The under has cashed in seven of Atlanta’s nine home games to date.
