We have 4 games in WNBA this night but most of them quite tricky to play. At the beginning of the season key players are not ready yet after European season, some are injured and many 2nd unit players getting their minutes. So I decided to start with just one pick, where I really see value.
Tulsa Shock – Minnesota Lynx
Monica Wright, Deveraux Peters and Rebekkah Brunson still injured for Lynx, and McCarville joined the list last week. However, she should be ready for this match Lynx looking reall short-handed and forced to play with limited rotation. Lynx should play 3 matches in 4 dats and coach should rotate players to save energy.
Tulsa almost full with Jennifer Lacy status upgraded to probable against Lynx and they will have huge advantage on the bench tonight.
Lynx is more talented team with much better starters, but I can’t see them being 6-points favorites against Tulsa, which is fighting for every ball playing at home and showed a solid games in preseason by beating 2 times SA Stars and China team by 46 points at home. I would not be surprised with Tulsa fighting for the victory tonight.
Pick: Tulsa +6 @ 1.95 7/10 Pinnacle
