Odds as of June 15th

Storm Should Roll in Indy

In the first game, Seattle and Indiana battle in a contest between teams on opposite ends of the standings. The Storm (10-2) are in first place with a three-game winning streak and the Fever (1-11) sit at the bottom of the standings with a seven-game losing streak.

The Storm have been led by Breanna Stewart and Jewell Loyd, who have each tallied at least one Player of the Week honor. Stewart is averaging 21.3 points, 9.6 rebounds and 2.7 assists, while Loyd is averaging 19.3 pointes, 4.2 assists and 3.9 rebounds a game.

The Fever have struggled all year long, but Kelsey Mitchell has been a bright spot in Indiana, leading the team with 15.1 points, 2.3 assists and 1.9 rebounds thus far.

Seattle comes into this game as heavy favorites, and that should play out in the eventual outcome. Expect the Storm to remain atop the league standings.

Lynx and Sky Grinding for Playoff Positioning

In the showdown between Minnesota and Chicago, that might closest game of the night featuring a pair of teams trying to erase early-season struggles. The Lynx (4-5) have won four of their last five after starting the year 0-4, while the Sky (4-7) have won two straight after a 2-7 start.

Dealing with multiple injuries, the Lynx will rely heavily on Sylvia Fowles and Napheesa Collier while shorthanded. Fowles is averaging 16.8 points, 8.7 rebounds and 2.4 steals a game, while Collier is averaging 16 points and 6.3 rebounds. Kayla McBride, Crystal Dangerfield and Layshia Clarendon have also been playing well for Minnesota.

Candace Parker has fueled the Sky’s recent surge, returning from injury a few games ago. Parker is averaging 13 points, nine rebounds and 3.3 assists, with Kahleah Copper leading the team with 14.2 points and 4.5 rebounds.

Minnesota may be shorthanded against Chicago, but the Lynx should still be able to edge out a win at home to claim their fifth game in the last six contests.

Aces & Liberty Will Put on a Show

New York and Las Vegas could be the most entertaining game to wrap up the night. The Liberty (6-4), who will likely be without Sabrina Ionescu (ankle), are 6-4 in their last 10 games and sit behind the Aces (8-3), winners of three straight, in the standings.

Betnijah Laney has been outstanding for New York, leading the charge with 21 points, 5.4 assists and 4.2 rebounds. The Liberty will rely on her again Tuesday, especially if Ionescu is out.

The duo of A’ja Wilson and Liz Cambage could be set up for big games for Las Vegas, as Wilson leads the team with 19.5 points and 8.5 rebounds and Cambage comes in averaging 15.3 points and 8.2 rebounds.

New York’s injury issues to a few key players might end up being too much to overcome in this game, giving Las Vegas the edge on the Aces home court.

Best Bet of the Night

In the first two games of the night, the odds going into the game are as expected, with Seattle heavily favored over Indiana and Minnesota edging out Chicago.

For the nightcap, it’s somewhat surprising to see Las Vegas favored as much as it is over New York, even with the Liberty dealing with injury issues and playing on the road. For the best bet of the night, pick the Liberty being 12.5-point underdogs. That game will likely be a closer contest than that.

  • The pick: New York +12.5 (-109)
