Top 2022 WNBA Games Worth Betting This Week (August 10th – 14th)
New York Liberty vs Dallas Wings

Seattle Storm vs Chicago Sky
Coming up on Tuesday night in Chicago, IL is the current #4 Seattle Storm versus #1 Chicago Sky game. This game between the current first and fourth seeds has the potential to be the preview for semi-finals in the 2022 WNBA playoffs. Following last weekend’s emotional final home game for Sue Bird, this week could continue being an emotional one as these are the final regular season games she will play.
With both teams getting a chance to cushion their current playoff seeding, this game is a great game to bet on as it is a potential playoff matchup and Sue Bird’s final regular season game in Chicago. Will the Storm pull off an upset to prepare for playoffs or will the Sky continue to prove their dominance?
Chicago Sky vs Las Vegas Aces
Another potential playoff matchup but in this case a potential WNBA Finals matchup, the #1 Chicago Sky will face the #2 Las Vegas Aces in this Thursday night matchup in Las Vegas, NV. These Sky and Aces have played three previous times with the last meeting resulting in a 93-83 win for the Aces on July 26. The Aces currently hold the season series lead 2-1 against the Sky but 0-1 in Las Vegas.
With the chance of this being a preview of a potential WNBA Finals matchup, this is a great game to bet on as it is the two best teams in the standings this season. The Sky have a chance to tie the season series and go 2-0 in Vegas, while the Aces hope to hold their series lead.
Seattle Storm vs Las Vegas Aces
The final game this week out of the many to watch for is the #4 Seattle Storm against the #2 Las Vegas Aces on Sunday in Las Vegas. This will be an emotional game for the Storm as this will be Sue Bird’s final regular season game before the 2022 WNBA Playoffs. This also has a chance of being a finals matchup if all the right pieces fall for these teams. The Storm and Aces played three times this year with the Aces leading 2-1. Their recent matchup was August 7th with the Aces winning 89-81 in Sue Bird’s final home game of the regular season.
This is a great regular-season finale to bet on as it is a final regular-season game for Sue Bird and a great matchup to prepare for playoffs. Will the Storm redeem Bird’s final home game loss and win Sue Bird’s final regular season game or will the Aces hold their season lead heading into the playoffs?
