WNBA Update

September 28, 2016

The best of five, semi-final round of the WNBA playoffs begins tonight with all four remaining teams in action, with both tilts to be televised on ESPN Two.

In the opener the defending champions and top ranked Minnesota Lynx are 6 plus point game, and near 3 to 1 series favorites vs the 8th seed, Phoenix Mercury. These two franchises have combined to win 6 of the last 9 WNBA crowns and are meeting in the ‘offs” for the 4th straight season.

Led by a truly excellent player, Diana Taurasi (apparently, if one trusts what one reads (13-3) in WNBA so called “elimination” games and also unaware her Mercury team were favorites, not underdogs at the New York Liberty, in the Mercury “elimination” game victory last Saturday) the Mercury beat both the Indiana Fever and third seed, Liberty to advance to the semis.

Meanwhile the “Chi” Sky are very high, concerning odds that is, as the second seed L.A. Sparks are huge 10 point game and roughly 12 to 1, (man to man, woman to woman, human to human), “faves” in the series.

The Sky defeated the Atlanta Dream to advance. Atlanta had beaten the Seattle Storm, both in one game entities.
