The surging New York Liberty will be a road favorite in the wnba lines when they visit the Minnesota Lynx on Saturday night.
The Liberty has won 9 of their last 10 contests, including the in-season Commissioner’s Cup final against the Las Vegas Aces on Aug.15, but they are just 15-18 ATS in the regular season.
New York is 3½ games behind Las Vegas for the top spot in the WNBA standings after holding on for a 95-90 victory in overtime at the Connecticut Sun on Thursday to improve its road record to an impressive 14-3 — not including the Commissioner’s Cup win.
Minnesota has actually been a better bet on the road (10-7) than at home (7-10) after a big 90-81 triumph at the Dallas Wings on Thursday.
While the Liberty’s Breanna Stewart is a co-favorite for the MVP along with Las Vegas forward A’ja Wilson at -110 in the Las Vegas wnba odds, Napheesa Collier (21.6 points) has had an outstanding season for the Lynx.
Liberty Keeping Teams Under
The under has been a good wager at the sportsbook in Liberty games of late — going 8-2 in the past 10 – and New York leads the league in lowest opponent field-goal percentage (42.1).
Stewart poured in 24 points on 9-of-20 from the field in the victory on Thursday after a mini-shooting slump in which she made just 11-of-41 from the field in three contests.
Jonquel Jones finished with 21 points and 14 rebounds while Sabrina Ionescu scored 18 for the Liberty to help the over cash in for those WNBA betting on Thursday.
Marine Johannes has made an impact off the bench for New York, averaging 12.3 points and draining 12-of-19 shots from 3-point range the past four games. Her continued sharp shooting could help the Liberty’s team total.
New York is +190 to win the WNBA title in the live betting – easily second in the league behind Las Vegas (-225).
Lynx Paying Off ATS
Minnesota has put up at least 90 points in the last two games — about 10 above its season average this season – and will need to continue that trend.
Collier is averaging 23 points the past four games after recording 25 at Dallas on Thursday, improving the Lynx ATS record to 19-14-1 if you bet sports online.
Kayla McBride has raised her offensive output of late, averaging 20 points the last four games, while Dorka Juhasz scored nine and Tiffany Mitchell had 11 in the latest victory to give Minnesota more depth.
The over is 5-1 in the last six Lynx games, according to wnba odds, and 19-15 overall in 2023.
Minnesota is +18000 in the Las Vegas odds to win the league title – seventh among 12 teams.
