WNBA Tuesday Best Bets: Connecticut seeks 10th straight win

Connecticut Sun guard Jasmine Thomas signals a play call.

The Connecticut Sun begin their 3-game road trip with a stop in Dallas as they look for a series sweep. Out in the Pacific Northwest, Washington and Seattle are both seeking victories for different reasons. Washington is attempting to make the playoffs, while Seattle is trying to hold onto a first-round bye.

Connecticut Sun at Dallas Wings prediction: Wings under 69.5 (-106)

The WNBA’s strongest defensive team heads out onto the road for 3 games against 2 playoff hopefuls and a Phoenix Mercury squad that will put their stellar defense to the test. Dallas Wings dropped a must-win contest against the Atlanta Dream on Sunday and now needs to win 2 of their next 4 games for a playoff opportunity. 

This is the third and final meeting between the Sun and Wings – the earlier meetings resulted in 10-plus point victories for Connecticut. With the absence of Satou Sabally and Isabelle Harrison, the Sun should sweep the series. Dallas is averaging 73.3 points per game since the All-Star break – roughly 12 fewer points per game than before the month-long pause. Moriah Jefferson is also listed as questionable for tonight’s game. In their previous outings, Connecticut has held Dallas to 70 and 59 points, respectively. With potentially 3 weapons out for Dallas, I’ll take the under in this one.

Washington Mystics at Seattle Storm prediction: Mystics +9.5 (-112)

Washington heads west for the series tiebreaker with Seattle. The Mystics grabbed the win in the first outing as Tina Charles went off for 34 points and grabbed 16 rebounds. Seattle then spoiled Elena Delle Donne’s return in Washington for their second matchup – the Mystics had won or tied in every quarter besides the 2nd, when they were outscored 25-12, which was the difference in the game.

While Seattle has already clinched a playoff spot, the Storm are fighting for a first-round bye. Currently 4th, Seattle will face Phoenix (5th) in their regular-season finale next week as the Mercury hopes to secure that spot. The Mystics had a brutal last outing in Minnesota, losing by 18. At this point in the season, the Lynx are a better team than the Storm and given Seattle’s recent struggles, the Mystics should put up a good fight.
