Sparks vs. Lynx

Friday, June 14
7:30 p.m. ET
Kayla McBride over 16.5 pts

By Bryan Fonseca

I'll rare skip out on an opportunity to bet Kayla McBride overs. She's one of my favorite players in the W and is rolling lately.

McBride is over 16.5 points in three of her last five, with one miss being 16 exactly. The overs were 25, 25, and 32, respectively.

She's been hot from deep, 52 percent on 7.3 threes a game for the season and 56 percent on eight attempts over her last five.

This run won't last forever, but against the rebuilding Sparks, I'm betting it will. Hopefully she clears early in case it's a blowout.

Pick: Kayla McBride over 16.5 pts

Sky vs. Mystics

Friday, June 14
7:30 p.m. ET
Sky ML (-135)

By Stephen Nover

Pity the poor Mystics. They just got their best all-around player, guard Brittney Sykes, back in their last game against Atlanta. Sparked by Sykes' return, the Mystics beat the Dream, 87-68, for their first win of the season after 12 consecutive losses. However, Sykes suffered a foot injury in the victory and is out indefinitely again after missing eight games.

Shakira Austin is the Mystics' top low-post player and she's out, too, with a hip injury. I don't see the 1-12 Mystics beating the 4-7 Sky minus those two players and in a letdown spot after finally achieving their much-needed first victory of the year. Washington is 0-5 at home.

Chicago is the better team, especially with highly-touted rookie center Kamilla Cardosa back in shape and not limited anymore with a minutes restriction. Cardosa and Angel Reese give the Sky a big front-court edge. Reese is proving to be a tremendous talent in her rookie season with four straight double-doubles. She had a season-high 20 points and 10 rebounds in Chicago's last game, an 83-75 loss to Connecticut, the best team in the WNBA with an 11-1 record. Now the Sky are going from being competitive against the best team to playing the worst team.

The Sky and Mystics met in Washington just eight days ago. The Sky shot just 38 percent from the floor and made only 1-of-14 shots from 3-point range. Yet the Sky still beat the Mystics, 79-71.

Pick: Sky ML (-135)
