WNBA fantasy and betting tips for Saturday

Every day of the WNBA season, our team of fantasy and betting experts break down every game on the board, noting everything from injuries and lineup changes to recent trends and more.

All odds are provided by Caesars Sportsbook. Times are ET.

Here’s what to pay attention to during today’s table:

Indiana Fever at Dallas Wings
08:00, College Park Center, Arlington, TX

Line: Wings (-12.5)
Money: Wings (-800), Fever (+550)
Total: 163 points
BPI Win%: Sleep (80%)

interrogative: Arike Ogunbowale

Off: Satou Sabally (ankle), Nia Coffey (knee), Kelsey Mitchell (foot)

Fantasy to know: With 15 straight losses, the Fever are the only team eliminated from the playoffs in the league. To make matters worse, Indiana lost 12 games by at least 10 points, the most double-digit losses in a season in league history. Additionally, Kelsey Mitchell, who averaged 29.1 fantasy points per game, will miss the rest of the season with a foot injury. NaLyssa Smith is the most reliable fantasy option. If you’re looking for a streamer, consider Queen Egbo (available in 45.3% of leagues) and Victoria Vivians (57.1%).

In terms of fantasy points per game, Arike Ogunbowale has been phenomenal for managers so far this season, averaging 32.9 per game. An ankle injury kept her out of the last two games at the worst possible time, as this is a fantastic playoff season. Ogunbowale is expected to return tonight. She belongs in your lineup along with Allisha Gray, Marina Mabrey, Kayla Thornton (51.6%) and Teaira McCowan.

Best bet: Wings -12.5

The Wings rank fourth in offensive rating (103.1) and eighth in defensive rating (103.3), while the Fever ranks last in both of those advanced metrics. With Ogunbowale back, Dallas is a superior team.

New York Liberty at Phoenix Mercury
10:00 PM, Footprint Center, Phoenix, AZ

Line: Liberty (-2)
Money: Freedom (-130), Mercury (+110)
Total: 163 points
BPI Win%: Mercury (67.2%)

interrogative: Diana Taurasi (four)

Fantasy to know: The matchup between two teams trying to secure a playoff spot should be interesting. In the last three games, the Mercury have lost three in a row, while the Liberty have won three in a row. Throughout the season, Sabrina Ionescu was one of the best fantasy players, as only A’ja Wilson and Breanna Stewart scored more fantasy points than her. Ionescu and Natasha Howard should be in your lineups. Your most reliable streamers are Stefanie Dolson (available in 76% of leagues) and Marine Johannes (90%).

Skylar Diggins-Smith averaged 35.6 fantasy points per game this season and is on the team alongside Diana Taurasi, Sophie Cunningham, Diamond DeShields, Shey Peddy (66.8%) and Brianna Turner. If Diggins-Smith receives another technical foul this season, she will be fined $800 and suspended for one game. This is something fantasy managers should keep in mind. With the quad injured, Taurasi was asked about tonight’s game. DeShields would get more minutes if she was inactive.

Best bet: Mercury +2

This season, Merkur played better at home than on the road. Phoenix is ​​9-5 at home and averaging 86 points per game. With five seeds now clinched and the remaining three tied for the Wings, Liberty and Dream, this is a must-win game for the Mercury. Phoenix should cover.
