WNBA Odds, Trends for Mystics vs. Dream, Sparks vs.Sky

Action Network's PJ Walsh reports on the betting market for Friday's pair of WNBA games.

Friday is an interesting day when it comes to the sports calendar.

With the Fourth of July holiday looming, today is one of the busiest travel days of the year.

While this could result in many travelers not paying attention to sports, it could, on the other hand, be an important day for those looking to kill time while working their way toward their holiday destinations.

That said, Friday’s schedule features two WNBA games: Washington Mystics vs. Atlanta Dream (7:30 p.m. ET) and Los Angeles Sparks vs. Chicago Sky (8 p.m. ET).

With this in mind, let’s take a quick look at the latest WNBA odds for Friday, including spread and over/under betting trends for both of these matchups.

WNBA Odds, Betting Trends for Friday

*Odds and betting trends as of 1 p.m. ET Friday.

Mystics vs. Dream

Mystics Odds -1.5
Dream Odds +1.5
Moneyline -128 / +104
Over/Under 164.5
Time 7:30 p.m. ET
Odds via FanDuel.

Spread percentage: 75% on Mystics
Over/under percentage: 83% on under

It’s interesting to note that 75% of the spread tickets have come in on Mystics according to the Action Network’s WNBA public betting data, though Washington has actually dipped from a 2- to 1.5-point favorite as of the time of writing.

Could this be a sign that respected bettors are among the minority backing Atlanta and that oddsmakers have taken note?

Sparks vs. Sky

Sparks Odds +2.5
Sky Odds -2.5
Moneyline +116 / -142
Over/Under 155.5
Time 8 p.m. ET
Odds via FanDuel.

Spread percentage: 56% on Sparks
Over/under percentage: 87% on under

While Sparks vs. Sky spread betting is relatively balanced, the over/under is showing a similar pattern to the Mystics vs. Dream game above.

Eighty-seven percent of the bets wagered on the total are falling on the under, yet this number has actually increased from its opener of 154.5 to 155.5.
