We’re back in a bear WNBA betting streak over the last several days and right before the All Star Break, I’m rage cashing a pair of WNBA Picks before the clock runs out on the first half of the regular season!

Over their last three home games, the Dream have held their opponents to just 88.3 points per 100 possessions, while playing at a pace below 90.</p><p>With the Sparks slowing things down some lately, I think we see a big-time defensive effort from both teams and a game that one or both squads could fall below 70 points.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;Nothing to start your week like some Mercury basketball!

Now they are back in Phoenix for this one and despite the injury to Essence Carson, the Mercury still look like a strong first half, and possibly full game wager.</p><p>The Fever come into tonight losers of nine of their last 10 games SU and during that stretch they are allowing 101.5 points per 100 possessions, which is the worst mark in the WNBA. While they get better on defense in the first halves of those 10 games, they are also averaging only 88.2 points per 100 possessions in the first halves of those games.</p><p>Considering the Mercury own one of the league’s best first half defenses, <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/more-sports/" target="_blank" title="More Sports Picks &amp; Predictions">I think they stifle the Fever in the first half of this one.</a></p></div>
