2011 Season WNBA Basketball Past Picks

Indiana at Atlanta
Tuesday 08/30 07:30 PM Eastern
5 units on Game Total UNDER 159 -110 (risk 5 to return 5) RESULT: LOSS
This is a high total for a WNBA game. Indiana and its up-tempo offense is getting respect from oddsmakers, but too much respect as they are on a 3-1 run UNDER the total. There’s a lot at stake for both teams and that can mean tougher defensive efforts. The Indiana Fever are on the verge of becoming the first Eastern Conference team to clinch a berth in the playoffs, where they could end up facing the Atlanta Dream in the first round. But, Atlanta has have won both games between the two this year. The UNDER is 4-0 in the Fever’s last four games playing on two days of rest. Atlanta has won its last four at home against Indiana and I see a fiercer defensive effort than oddsmakers anticipate. Play the UNDER.
