tap to read last night's game recap. ⤵️
PPG: 17.9 | FG: 43.7% | 3 PT: 39.4 % | FT: 83.6 % | REB: 1.5 | AST: 3.1 |STL: 0.8 | BLK: .1
Indiana Fever guard, Kelsey Mitchell earned her first trip to the WNBA All-Star game this season. In the guards sixth year in the WNBA, she's averaging career-highs in minutes, and is shooting close to 40 percent from downtown. In addition, the All-Star ranks 10th in the league in total points scored (610), fourth in minutes per game (1134), and 5th in three-pointers made (84). Although the Indiana Fever rank towards the bottom of the standings, they are 5th in offensive efficiency, averaging nearly 81 points a game.
Mitchell, 27 is coming off an impressive game in Indiana's win over Seattle. In the win, Mitchell scored 36 points in 37 minutes, on 10-20, and 44 percent three-point shooting. In addition, number zero is averaging 33.8 minutes, 22 points, 14 field goal attempts, and 6.6 three-point attempts per game. Overall, that's nearly five points over her average this season, and almost two three-point attempts higher than July.
Although this prop never hit over two made threes in both matchups against Atlanta, Mitchell is averaging 22 points, and 5.5 three-point attempts. Conversely, in this month, the Fever guard hit over 2.5 three-pointers 55 percent, and 80 percent in the last five games.
Overall, the Fever are facing playoff elimination, and Mitchell has emerged as one of their top offensive weapons. She faces an Atlanta Dream team, who ranks third in perimeter defense. However, Atlanta holds the worse win percentage in the month of August and dropped to 8th in defensive efficiency in the past 27 days. If you're betting on WNBA prop bets, look for Mitchell to continue her hot streak today.
Rhyne Howard Under 4.5 rebounds (-130/ Over 2.5 threes made (-113)
PPG: 17.7 | FG: 40.4 % | 3 PT: 37.4 % | FT: 78.1 % | REB: 4.5 |AST: 3.2 |STL: 1.4 | BLK: 0.6
Rhyne Howard, former rookie of the year, remains one of the most vital parts of this Atlanta team. Averaging 4.5 rebounds per game, Howard hit the over on this prop in five of the last eight games. Howard, six foot two, will face the Indiana Fever, who rank 6th in total rebounds, and lead the league in opposing boards per game (32).
In two games against Indiana, this prop hit once, and Howard was held to four rebounds most recent. Overall, the Fever rank third in total rebound percentage, and the Dream rank 9th in the Month of August. In addition, the Fever are coming off a 90-86 win, in which Smith and Boston combined for 21 total rebounds. If you're betting on WNBA props, I like the under for this prop.
Howard has been hot as anyone behind the three-point line. If you're betting on the WNBA, I like Rhyne Howard over 2.5 threes made. Even with Allisha Gray available this afternoon, the all-star hit this prop 60 percent in the last ten games, and 80 percent through the past five. It's important to note, Howard hit over 2.5 threes 66 percent this season. Even though Atlanta lost four of their last five, Howard is averaging over 34 minutes, 16 points, and 14.5 field goal attempts through this month.
Aliyah Boston O 14.5 PTS (-115)
PPG: 14.6 | FG: 59.3 % | 3 PT: 57.1 % | FT: 76.4 % | REB: 8.2 |AST: 2.1 |STL: 1.3 | BLK: 1.4
Rookie Aliyah Boston remains at the center of WNBA rookie of the year talk. Averaging just over 14 points a game, Boston hit this prop 66 percent this month, and over 50 percent this year. In addition, Boston has 50 combined points in her last two matchups against Atlanta. She in fact has average of 33 minutes, and 18.5 field goal attempts in two of those meetings.
Considered one of the most clutch players this season, Boston faces an Atlanta team that allows over 35 points in the paint this season. Given her matchup with the Dream this season, look for Boston to fight tonight, and continue to put on a show for possible rookie of the year.
