As the college sports editor around here, it’s a slow time over the summer. But that means more opportunities to dig deep on the WNBA all season long, and find all the value that is out there.
The W is not only a spot for great basketball, but a terrific spot for bettors as well. All you’ll really need is League Pass and a good stats account, and you should be able to find plenty of opportunities to get down some action. Remember the limits are a bit smaller for the WNBA from plenty of bookmakers, but you’ll still be able to get down plenty of action when needed.
We’ll be tracking one man’s selections against the spread and total all season long. All selections are for equal units unless noted later. We’ll also add links from Twitter with timestamps for anything not put in an article (we missed that for May 16 sorry).

No Candace Parker, Allie Quigley, or Stefanie Dolson for the Sky. And it doesn’t matter: LA is a special kind of terrible. Los Angeles is first in pace at 90.5 possessions per game, and dead last in scoring at 76.9 points per 100. So they go really fast to not score. They’ve also conceded 106.1 points per 100 in two games to Dallas and Las Vegas so far.
Chicago certainly isn’t as good as Las Vegas, but they’re better than four at home. And Parker calling out all of Derek Fisher’s plays from the bench won’t hurt either.
