The WNBA slate for Tuesday, June 20, includes a pair of games taking place at 10 p.m. ET: Minnesota Lynx vs. Los Angeles Sparks and Connecticut Sun vs. Seattle Storm. Sean Koerner, our Director of Predictive Analytics, highlights his WNBA projections for those games and more below.
Atlanta Dream vs.
|Spread | Total||Wings -3 | 173 (DraftKings)|
|Time | TV||8 p.m. ET | NBA TV|
|Koerner's Projections||Wings -2.5 | 172|
This game deserves to be highest total of the year so far. Dallas obviously likes to push the pace, but Atlanta has been involved in some high-scoring games lately. Their last game against the Indiana Fever was the fastest-paced game of season.
Minnesota Lynx vs.
Los Angeles Sparks
|Spread | Total||Sparks -5.5 | 157.5 (FanDuel)|
|Time | TV||10 p.m. ET | CBSSports|
|Koerner's Projections||Sparks -4 | 157.5|
The Lynx just beat the Sparks in Los Angeles a few days ago. Lexie Brown is out with an illness and probably worth about a point to the spread and total. Jessica Shepard is out for the Lynx, which is about a wash when it comes to the total. I think 157 for the over/under game seems about right.
Connecticut Sun vs.
|Spread | Total||Sun -8.5 | 161.5 (FanDuel)|
|Time | TV||10 p.m. ET | NBA TV|
|Koerner's Projections||Sun -7.5 | 158.5|
The Storm have looked like a functional team in non-Las Vegas Aces games — they have been outscored by 43 points per game in those two matchups.
