Unlike, NBA online betting sites, WNBA Thursday Picks for 7/14 are a bit more of a challenge. Thanks to BetOnline and to VegasBetting experts, however, there are always some options and wagers even on a Thursday. After all, a business can be slow sometimes even with all the sports going on. What do you know? The WNBA “favorite” happens to be a Vegas team. Can there be some Las Vegas dollars and more in our future?
|Las Vegas Aces||-270||-280|
|New York Liberty||+225||+240|
|Los Angeles Sparks||+140||+155|
The Las Vegas Aces are still doing well and lead things off in New York for a lunchtime clash. Yes, the WNBA team has been a nice story this year. They are struggling a little of late, going just 5-5 in their last ten games. However, they still lead the Western Conference by a half-game over the Seattle Storm. That said, Las Vegas is prevalent in our WNBA Thursday Picks for 7/14.
Now, the Aces have had a tough time playing the Liberty in their last two matchups. However, one of the bigger trends we noticed is the over is connecting more and more often. The Aces have also allowed 100 or more points in their last three games. At the very least, the team over for opponents is just intriguing and worthy of a look. Again, Las Vegas can score with the best of them too.
So, the Las Vegas Aces possess a lot of Becky Hammond in them. There is little doubt the former San Antonio Spurs’ assistant took a lot of her strategy and applied it to the Aces. However, lately, they have been giving up four more three-pointers per game from the perimeter and 11 more points a contest. That is a lot. This seems like something the coach and players have to work out. Thankfully, The Liberty give up plenty of points too.
Therefore, WNBA Thursday Picks for 7/14 focuses on two big questions. Can Las Vegas keep the pattern going? Or will the New York Liberty play some defense at home? Naturally, here at VegasBetting, our WNBA choices are below. Our lean is also to look at the Aces as a viable moneyline play if they come down below -250.
Sadly, the WNBA Thursday Picks for 7/14 have some tough matchups. One never truly can underestimate the home court advantage. However, the Washington Mystics are underdogs against the Phoenix Mercury. That is right. The Washington Mystics are Plus Money on the road against a sub-.500 team. The spread has gone back and forth a bit along with the moneyline but currently, the best numbers were around +105 to +110 for Washington.
Now, could Phoenix spoil things and win at home? That is a yes. The Mercury are horrendous on the road and losers of 11 of their 15 games away from home. They are a respectable 6-4 in Phoenix. However, Washington is also a solid 8-6 on the road and have won their last two games. The Mystics are also 7-4 against the Western Conference as well. That has to be kept in mind.
This offensive shown against Los Angeles was encouraging especially when looking ahead. Now, that 13-point win over the Sparks was significant and yet bookmakers do not quite see it that way. Elena Della Donne is a big part of the Washington offense but Ariel Atkins and Natasha Cloud have been contributing very well even with the forward missing nine games this season.
Finally, it is that balance that makes Washington a threat at home or on the road. Honestly, the home-court advantage for Phoenix keeps this respectable. With the Mystics’ talent and ability to rebound offensively (tops in the league), this team is built to win away from home. Therefore, from a simple moneyline and spread standpoint, the Washington bet is a solid choice for WNBA Thursday Picks for 7/14.
The WNBA Thursday Picks for 7/14 almost forgot about the Chicago Sky. Now, can the Chicago Sky keep surging? That’s an excellent question. As of press time, they are 17-6 and have the best record in the WNBA. The Sky are also on a hot streak and winners of eight of their last ten contests. Behind this surge, Chicago now has a point differential of 6.2 points per game. That tops the league as well.
Again, Chicago despite their latest run still has a little bit of value. That surprises some considering they very well could win another WNBA Championship. The Sky are still the most balanced team in the WNBA while averaging around 86 points per game. Candice Parker, Emma Vandersloot, and Kahleah Copper keep the Sky a dominating force in a league with constant change. They easily beat the Dream by 15 recently.
Yes, with so many scoring options, even the Los Angeles Sparks will have problems at home trying to combat the Chicago attack.
For the WNBA Thursday Picks for 7/14, taking the Chicago Sky at a reasonable -165 moneyline seems like a solid wager. In some cases, considering the spread might not be too bad of an option as well. However, only do that if it stays below three points. Anything more might be a problem.
BetOnline carries some other options this weekend too. Now, one can bet on any sport from “The Open” (Golf), The Tour de France, and even NBA Summer League. A bettor possesses many options on what shapes up to be an exciting sports weekend.
Finally, do not forget about some more online MLB Vegas odds where you can wager as the All-Star break approaches.
