Another exciting week in the WNBA is upon us as Summer is slowly starting to come to a halt. It’s now September and the regular season is in its final stretch. The best teams have made themselves clearly known as such and will be looking to win a few more to lock up their playoffs spots.
Let’s take a look at some of the games on the slate for this week that may be worth keeping an eye and bet on against the WNBA odds.
WNBA Games to Must Bet On for the Week
Mystics vs Storm
This is a game to watch for a few different reasons. On the Washington side, sure, they are 10-17 and in danger of potentially missing the playoffs. But, they have one of the best scorers in the game in Tina Charles, who has been dominant throughout the year.
Ariel Atkins has been a very good #2, and Natasha Cloud is a tremendous passer. The wins need to come over the final few weeks, but the talent they have make them worth the watch every time.
And for the Storm, winning a title is the only thing on their mind. Sue Bird has still got it. Breanna Stewart is unstoppable in a way few basketball players ever are, as she impacts things in so many different areas. And Jewell Loyd has continued to score effectively.
The team now it’s at 19-10, and the path to the finals could be relatively difficult. But they have shown how good they can be, come playoff time. They are third in the West right now.
Lynx vs Aces
When Minnesota and Las Vegas meet on Wednesday, it should be highly watched. Forget the fact that it is on at 10:00 PM ET. The top teams in the West will get together, and this is something all hoops fans will need to stay awake to enjoy.
Minnesota is 18-9 and has five players averaging 10+ ppg. Napheesa Collier is leading the way with 16.3 a night, shooting 45% from the floor. Kayla McBride and Sylvia Fowles have also been very effective.
But on the other side, you have an Aces team bristling with talent. From Liz Cambage to A’ja Wilson, they don’t lack anything. Kelsey Plum has continued to show improvement as she gets healthier and healthier as well.
Betting on this game is a bit of a nightmare scenario. But make sure to enjoy it.
Sun vs Mercury
Connecticut and Phoenix will get together over the weekend in another must-see game. Brittney Griner is averaging 21 and nine per game, with two blocks and nearly three assists to boot. She is continuing to dominate and could truthfully defeat DeMarcus Cousins 1-on-1 right now.
Skyler Diggins-Smith 19 ppg is a perfect complement, and the two of them have the team winning a lot at 17-10. But they are facing the best team in the WNBA in Connecticut.
It all starts with Jonquel Jones, who can do it all for her team. They have the best defensive rating in the league and slow down every team they face. Jones and DeWanna Bonner have both been dominant and will look to keep the wins coming.
