The WNBA is the summer’s forgotten sport, but a handful of total bettors are having a season to remember strictly by wagering on the ‘under’ in women’s basketball action.
WNBA games are playing under the total 60.22 percent of the time, heading into Tuesday’s schedule, with July’s contests posting a 14-23 over/under record (62 percent under), including a 0-6 over/under mark this past weekend. Heading into July, the WNBA had produced a 24-35-2 over/under mark.
Only two teams have leaned toward the ‘over’ this season, the Washington Mystics (9-8-0 O/U) and Tulsa Shock (10-8-1 O/U). The biggest breadwinners for ‘under’ bettors have been the Indiana Fever (3-11-1 O/U) and Seattle Storm (5-11 O/U). Both teams rank at the bottom of the WNBA in scoring, averaging 69.3 and 68.9 points respectively.
Teams are averaging 76.38 points per game this season compared to 77.53 points in 2012.
