What’s up Fancaver’s?! Thanks for checking out my article, today I’m going to try something a little different and do a game by game break down for the 3 game slate.
Dream @ Fever = DREAM -5 O/u 152
Liberty @ Lynx = LYNX -7.5 O/u 154
Sun @ Mercury = Mercury -4 O/u 171
We’ll start with the 7pm game of the ATL Dream traveling to IND Fever with a rematch of Thursday’s game. The opening line was Dream by 5 but has since been removed off bovada as of 230pm. Something fishy might be going on here so check back in before lock, Britteny Sykes has missed the last 3 games and could suit up tonight as she’s listed as Questionable. The game has a 152 O/u which seems about right, last game tipped at 11am so I’m thinking that threw them off a little bit. Tiffany Hayes $6,600 and Natalie Achonwa $6,100 are my two favorite plays from this game. Hayes has been super consistent this year and Achonwa is playing the best basketball of her career. Candace Dupree $6,300 is another player I like because she went for 35 fps and just missing a double-double last game against ATL. For some value in this game I like Vivians $4,000. She played in 30 minutes last game and scored 13p, grabbed 4r, plus stuffed the stat sheet with a block and steal for 23fp. Erica Wheeler $5,000 is also a solid option, she just shot poorly last game and was just under value coming off the bench. Both McCoughtry $7,500 and Breland $7,100 are over priced for me even though they are top players for the Dream. L. Clarendon $4,300 is an interesting play, she went for 23 fps last game against IND.
Next we have NY Liberty vs MIN Lynx tipping at 8pm. Both teams are under .500 which isn’t expected for MIN. My favorite plays from this game are Maya Moore $6,900 , Tina Charles $7,700 and T. Wright $3,500. Wright is my value play of the day because she’s min price and has played in 25 and 26 minutes her last two games. The Augustus injury has helped, but she’s played in those last two games and Wright has still been getting those minutes. This tells me that Wright could permanently keep getting those minutes so plug her in tonight as Augustus is currently Questionable. I’m not interested in any of NY’s guards as there is too many of them to keep track of. I am fading Sylvia Fowles $8,400, because she’s only burned me this year. She had a double-double against NY earlier in the year, but only scored 27 fps. The only other play I’m looking at from this game is Kia Vaughn $3,700. She missed earlier in the year with an injury and has started to fill in nicely in the front court. They will need her tonight against Fowles.
The last game of the night is PHO Mercury squaring off against CON Sun. This is a potential playoff matchup as both teams are sitting nicely to start the year off. The Sun are a really deep team poised to make a deep playoff run and the Mercury have plenty of star power to do so as well. This game has the highest O/u @ 171 so I will try to get as many pieces from this game in my lineup. I’m going to stick to my number one rule in Wnba and that’s never fade Brittney Griner $8,600. She has the potential to go for 60+ fps any given night ( like two games ago) and I think she plays well tonight. I also like Jasmine Thomas $5,800 especially if Alyssa Thomas is out again, because Jasmine’s usage goes way up. Chiney Ogwumike $6,800 is another player that benefits a lot with Thomas being out. Ogwumike went for 30 actual points last night and is starting to heat up after missing the last couple years with injuries. Jonquel Jones $6,100 is a gpp play tonight and could pay off enormously if she gets a lot of minutes against Griner. Last but not least Sancho Lyttle $4,600 is a sneaky play. PF have been tearing up Con the last couple games and I know Lyttle isn’t anywhere near the level of play of the EDD, Moore or Natasha Howard ( who has been great this year). I think she’s in a prime spot to hit value and save you some salary.
