With NBA Men’s Basketball wrapping up, it’s time to shift focus towards WNBA Women’s Pro Basketball instead. That’s right, on Friday, May 24th, the season will jump off with two games to choose from. First, there’s the Dallas Wings versus Atlanta Dream and then the Indiana Fever against New York Liberty. After that, we’ll have a full weekend of games to bet on. Also, this will be the first year that FanDuel customers will be able to wager on WNBA Basketball from the start of the season.
Prepare Your Picks Now
Historically, WNBA Basketball hasn’t always had much coverage, even though people are more interested in the sport than men’s basketball. However, this year, things are looking much brighter for the league and for fans alike. On April 22nd, CBS Sports announced a multi-year deal to broadcast 40 games beginning this weekend with Chicago vs. Minnesota. But if you’re into sports betting, then you probably check out FanDuel and have your sights set on Phoenix vs. Seattle. As we all know, the Storm swept the Mystics in three games last year to win the 2018 WNBA Championship. Not to mention, both Breanna Stewart and Natasha Howard will start against Phoenix. Therefore, you’ll want to keep an eye on this game and consider it in your top picks this weekend.
More Picks to Consider
On April 10th, the Nike Headquarters in New York hosted the 2019 WNBA Draft Picks. As a result, the Las Vegas Aces won the Draft Lottery and chose Jackie Young from Notre Dame as the team’s first-round pick. Being that A’ja Wilson now has some backup, all eyes will be on Young as she enters the Arena for the first time. However, the Aces finished dead last in 2018 and will host the 3rd place Los Angeles Sparks this Sunday in Sin City. Either way, it’s going to be a good game as the Aces look to spank the Sparks to set the season off on the right foot.
