Lady luck: Sunday's best WNBA bets

Aug 27, 2011 |
Minnesota Lynx at San Antonio Silver Stars (2.5, 152.5)

The Lynx have allowed an average of 69.3 points over their last four games, including an 85-75 home win over San Antonio on Friday. That game sailed over the total of 149.5, but Minnesota's three previous games stayed under.

And Friday's game was unusually high scoring for these two teams. In the first two meetings this season, Minnesota won 62-60 and 70-69.

The under is 15-5-1 in the Silver Stars' last 21 games.

And in Minnesota's last nine games playing on one day's rest, the under is 8-1.

Pick: Under

Los Angeles Sparks at Seattle Storm (-7, 145)

The Sparks were embarrassed Friday, losing at home 77-75 to woeful Tulsa. That upset ended the Shock's 20-game losing streak.

Now L.A. must head north to play the Storm, who dispatched those same Shock 74-57 a night earlier.

Seattle is a terrific home team (12-2 SU, 8-6 ATS) that has won three straight since center Lauren Jackson returned from hip surgery.

In the past nine meetings between these squads, the Storm are 6-2-1 ATS. And the Sparks are a pitiful 4-12 ATS in their last 16 road games.

Pick: Storm
