Basketball Odds: Washington Mystics vs. Indiana Fever

After what will seem like an extra offseason, the WNBA will return to the court following the London Olympics. When all the ceremonies and flag waving finish, nearly a month will have gone by between games. Thus, trying to base your bet on WNBA basketball this far in advance may be tough.

However, the live lines and spreads will also have tough time gauging how teams will react to the layoff, so you may be able to take advantage with a smart wager. Bet on the first game back between the Washington Mystics and the Indiana Fever, as the underdog Mystics may have a chance to strike while the Fever are cold.

Washington went just 3-14 through the first half of the season, going winless on the road and recording just one win within the Eastern Conference. The Mystics have little chance of making the playoffs after such a poor start to the year, but they can still contribute to WNBA wagering with an upset here and there.

The Indiana Fever could go either way this year. Sometimes, they look like the best team in the East, like when they destroyed the Connecticut Sun at home by a score of 95-61. Yet, in games such as their double-digit defeat to New York back in June, they look lost.

This matchup against Washington after the break will be key in establishing their identity going into the stretch run. If they are the contender they sometimes appear to be, then look for them to come out hot right from the opening tip.

When you go to bet on WNBA basketball, a lot depends on the spread. I do not believe the Mystics will win this game, but if the live lines look enticing enough, I could understand if you threw a wager on Washington.
