Fever guard, Erica Wheeler is averaging nearly 13 points per game in the month of August and shooting 55 percent from the three-point in the last three matchups. Wheeler has played consistent basketball, next to Rookie Aliyah Boston, Kelsey Mitchell, and Nalyssa Smith. If you're betting on the WNBA, the Fever guard hit over 9.5 points in three straight games, and in 85 percent of games this month. For the month of July, Wheeler hit this prop in five straight games, and in 50 percent of the games. Additionally, Wheeler 9.5 points and over hit 60 percent of the games, and 80 percent in the last five, and ten games.

Overall, the Phoenix Mercury and the Indiana Fever both stand in the bottom of the rankings. With the two teams under ten wins, Phoenix is 3-7 in their last ten games, and the Fever, 2-8. Phoenix ranks 10th in defensive rating (107.1), and Indiana ranks 7th overall in offensive rating. With the series split 1-1, Erica Wheeler is averaging 10.5 points, and shooting 52 percent from downtown in two games against Phoenix. If you're betting on the WNBA, it's important to know Erica Wheeler hit this prop in both games against the Mercury, and will matchup against a team who allows opposing teams to shoot nearly 35 precent from the three. After being undrafted, Erica Wheeler is back in her second stint with Indiana, and has become more consistent with this young core.

Aliyah Boston O 8.5 REB (-125)

PPG: 14.9 | FG: 59.7 % | 3 PT: 66.7 % | FT: 76 % |REB: 8.3 |AST: 2.3 |STL: 1.3 |BLK: 1.3

Forward Aliyah Boston, out of South Carolina, is having a praiseworthy rookie season. After starting as a rookie in this year's All-Star game, Boston is dominating her inaugural season. In fact, Boston "passed Tamika Catchings for first all-time in franchise history in field goals made by a rookie (Fever). "

Bound to break a number of records, Boston snagged over 8.5 rebounds in three of the last five games. In particular, the Fever forward has four double-doubles in the month of August, and is coming off a 16-point, 10 rebound game against the Washington Mystics. Out of the seven games in August, Boston hit over 8.5 rebounds in six games, and twice against Phoenix.

In two games against the Mercury, Aliyah Boston is averaging 10 rebounds. In addition, Indiana ranks first in the league in opponent rebounds per game (31.9), and the Mercury will be without star Brittney Griner tonight. As a whole, Phoenix ranks last in the league in rebounds per game (30.9), whereas Indiana ranks 6th (34.4). If you're betting on the WNBA, the stellar recent play of Boston, along with the matchup, should be two confident reasons why this prop will hit.

Napheesa Collier O 21.5 PTS (-115)

PPG: 21.5 | FG: 47.8 % | 3 PT: 30.3 % | FT: 83.8 % |REB: 7.9 |AST: 2.5 |STL: 1.5 |BLK: 1

After only playing 4 games in 2022, and sitting out a few games with injury this season, Napheesa Collier is back. Coming off a 24-point performance against Seattle, Collier hit over 21.5 points in 60 percent of the last five games. In addition, the fellow Connecticut Husky scored over 21.5 points in 50 percent of the games this month, and four games in July. In fact, three of her best games came against the Seattle Storm. Collier is averaging 29.3 points, 9.3 rebounds, and is shooting 50 percent from the field in all of her matchups against the Storm, including 19 field goal attempts per game, in 37.6 minutes. Furthermore, Napheesa made the go ahead shot in overtime, where the Lynx beat the Storm 99-97, on June 29th.

If you're betting on the WNBA, I would feel confident about this prop. Although Seattle ranks 6th in opponent points per game (83.3), they are missing frontcourt depth the absence of Gabby Williams. Look for Collier to continue to have another dominant game, after a 78-70 win over Seattle on Friday
