Lady luck: Saturday’s best WNBA bets

Atlanta Dream at Indiana Fever (-5, 154.5)

The anti-Mercury continue to impress with their stout defensive play. The Fever have been and are one of the WNBA’s premier teams because of their ability to disrupt opposing teams’ offenses.

That was the case again Thursday night when Indiana held Seattle, the second best scoring team in the league, to just 37 percent shooting.

“The emphasis for us is to always establish and identify ourselves on the defensive end,” Fever forward Katie Douglas told the Associated Press after the 72-65 win over the Storm. “I don’t think that really changes in any game.”

The Dream are playing great basketball right now but they shot just 33 percent from the field in their last encounter with the Fever. Fever lost by four by the game finished below the total.

Pick: Under

Chicago Sky at Washington Mystics (-5.5, 151)

The Sky missed a beautiful opportunity to notch a win over a quality opponent and end their losing streak Tuesday night against the Dream. Chicago led by as many as 10 points but failed to put away Atlanta late.

"I'm frustrated, but then again, you just have to let it go," Sylvia Fowles said after the setback. "I try not to hold things in as much this year, go back at it tomorrow at practice, learn from our mistakes and get ready for our next opponent."

That type of defeat isn’t easily forgotten, especially since the Sky held Angel McCoughtry, one of the league’s leading scorers, in check.

Expect the Mystics to extend Chicago’s losing streak to four games.

Pick: Washington

yesterday was looking for the SA U 85 1/2. *They played great!!! good enough to get the WIN.... 108/105. VAGAS got 95% of us on that one.... 95% Includes M/L players {-300}. PHO can flat out score the ball as we... the prb. is all of those quick 3's equal long rebounds / easy trans Offense. 70% of all games played against PHO have all went over.... This lesson should tell their coach... RUN and GUN just isnt going to work... Their Needing stops, better DEFENSE and MUCH better shoot selection. No More trans 3's. 1-on-4. on the fast break. SMARTER BASKETBALL should be the lesson here. PHO now drops to 5-6. 2nd which is 2nd in the WEST.
