WNBA Regular Season

Mohegan Sun Arena, Uncasville, CT

Wager: PHX/CT under 154 (best odds: -104 at Pinnacle)

1:00 PM EST. At first glance, the spread on the Connecticut Sun seems exceptionally inflated. The Phoenix Mercury have been a very solid team this summer, greatly improving their efficiency on offense from a season ago and capitalizing on the resurgence of Brittney Griner, who was finally back in full health of body and mind after her traumatic return from Russia last year. Phoenix was climbing the ranks and looking like a true contender, but then injuries hit. First it was Diana Taurasi, the future Hall of Famer, who incurred a leg injury, and just two days ago it was Brittney Griner falling to the hardwood in agony due to an apparent injury to her hip. Griner, Taurasi, and veteran guard Natasha Cloud (12.5 points and 7.2 assists per game) are all officially questionable, but it looks like the Mercury will miss at least two of the three in today's battle. That's not good when you're opposing the Sun. 

Connecticut is a team we’re going to look to fade later in the season, assuming that we're still betting the WNBA with the NFL imminently around the corner, but it’s undeniable that the Sun have been very good defensively. Last two times these two outfits faced, the Sun beat up Phoenix in a contest that only amounted to 117 points at the beginning of the season, and recently they battled to 155 points in another Connecticut victory. In the latter, Griner and Cloud combined for 39 points. The Sun display a good resistance in all categories, but the Mercury will be extremely vulnerable without the incomparable presence of Griner in the front court. We highly doubt that the Phoenix coaching staff will want their most important piece to push through what could be far more serious injury if it gets worse. Connecticut already slows down games in a major way; that's just their style of basketball. We expect them to be in full control of this battle from start to finish, which means the tempo will maintain a methodical pace and the Mercury's scoring ability will be severely affected. We'll take the under- this one could be a struggle to reach 140.

Copa America Final 2024

Hard Rock Stadium - Miami Gardens, FL

Columbia to Lift the Trophy (Win Copa America 2024)

8:00 PM EST. Forget the fairy tales for Argentina, who might be on the brink of an incredible run that would include a second Copa America title sandwiched around a World Cup victory. Oh, the Argentinians also feature the best player in the world, Lionel Messi, who is supported by a cast of talent that runs deep. However, this is a tournament final in which Messi and company got a breezy path, playing Ecuador (in a game they did not look good in) in the quarterfinals and then pulling surprise Canada in the semi-finals. Meanwhile, Colombia was in a brawl with Uruguay, in which they finished with a 1-0 win despite going down to 10 men in the first half.

While Argentina is on a great run, the Colombians have won 27 games in a row, and in case you haven't seen the highlights, they came here to fight for every inch, tooth and nail. Colombia will be undermanned again here, as they are down Daniel Muñoz, who was sent off in the 45th minute in the semis, which earned him a ban for this final. However, that is not privileged information, and it’s been factored into the odds here. There has been an overreaction to Colombia being down a key man on their back line, but that only increases their value in a game they are going to have a shot to win. It might be hard to see anyone but Messi raising the Copa America trophy tonight, and perhaps he will, but at the inflated price the Colombians are being offered, we’re stepping in with a wager.

Euro 2024 Final

Olympiastadion Berlin - Berlin, Germany

England To Lift the Cup (Win Euro 2024)

3:00 PM EST. A breakdown of X’s and O’s you won’t find here, but we are going to step into this Euro 2024 Final because there are so many boxes for us to check that it’s not even funny. To begin, England was the pre-tournament favorite, and while that may mean less today than it did when the action began, it’s not irrelevant. Furthermore, the English path to this final has been filled with nothing but near misses to the bad, having to overcome a 1-0 deficit in the semi-finals to the Netherlands. While there was drama for England in the group stage, having survived a win, loss, and draw, and while they had to claw their way past Slovakia in the Round of 16, the Three Lions played their best game after the poorest possible start when it mattered most. Now they are in the final, where anything can happen.

The Spanish breezed to this final and hair is not out of place, as they went undefeated in the group stage and then smashed Georgia 4-1 after going down 1-0. OK, a scrappy win vs. Germany in the quarterfinals is of quality and full credit, but that win, the easy dismissal of France in the semis, and making the “Group of Death” look silly has the Spanish overvalued on the biggest of stages. The beautiful game is one of the most luck-driven on the planet because the goals are few and the bounces are many. It’s also the most bet spot in the world, and the world is on Spain in this game. That suits us just fine. They may bet Spain, and Spain may win, and it may even win big, but the value lies with the English to lift the cup, and so that is how we are going to play it. It’s coming home.
