Just one game is on tap for the WNBA schedule tonight as the Seattle Storm head down to the desert to battle the Phoenix Mercury. The game will tip off at 10 p.m. ET on NBA TV.

Here are the odds and spreads for today’s WNBA action, courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Atlanta Dream at Phoenix Mercury, 10 p.m. ET

Spread: Mercury -3
Total: 159
Moneyline: Mercury -155, Storm +130

The pick: Mercury -3

Despite having the worst record in the league, the Storm have done a good job covering this season as they are 14-11-1 against the spread. With that being said, I’ll lean with the Mercury to cover as a slight favorite and clinch just their second winning streak of the season. Phoenix blasted Atlanta by 20 points on Thursday and saw history made with Diana Taurasi becoming the first player in league history to reach 10,000 points for her career. With Brittney Griner set to return to the lineup tonight, I think those good vibes carry over into tonight’s matchup. Take the Mercury on the spread.
