Each day of the WNBA season, our team of fantasy and betting experts breaks down every game on the roster, taking note of everything from injuries and lineup changes to recent trends and more.

Here’s what to look for during today’s menu:

Dallas Suites at Sophia Washington
7:00 p.m. ET, Entertainment & Sports Arena, Washington, DC

Line: Mystics (-8)
money line: Mystics (-360), Wings (+285)
Total: 156 points

Doubtful: Natasha Cloud (Covid-19)

exclude: Sato SabaliAnd Elizabeth WilliamsAnd Kennedy BurkeAnd Alisha Clark

Imagination need to know: After two big games to start the season, Natasha Cloud I got into WNBA health and safety protocols earlier this week. I sat outside of Tuesday’s game, and it’s questionable tonight. Roy Machida (Available in 98.8% of Leagues) She started her first career on Tuesday in place of Cloud, but her production (9 points, 4 assists, 1 3 pointers, 29 minutes) was mediocre. non-veteran Shakira Austin He had a double double on Sunday when Elena Delle Donne He sat, but in the two games Delle Donne Austin played, he averaged 3 points and 2.5 rebounds at 13 mpg.

Tierra McEwan She will make her first season with the Mystics after missing the opener due to outside commitments. Position 6-7 is a double double action, and having it in the middle may help open things up on the periphery Eric Ogunpoelwho struggled in the opening. Kayla Thornton (88.1% available) He is the most interesting winger available in the majority of tournaments, scoring eight of the team’s 59 points in the opening game and also adding 3 steals, 5 boards and 3 pointers in 35 minutes despite really struggling with her shot. – – Andre Snellings

Best Bet: Mystics -8.0 points

This is a huge spread, but mystics play on a level to justify it. Three games in, the Mystics were unbeaten with an average scoring margin of 13.0 PPG. The wingers have only played one game so far, but losing seven points on home soil to Dream was not an auspicious start. With Delle Donne playing, the Mystics have legitimate championship aspirations to start the season. – snoring

Las Vegas Aces at Atlanta Dream
7:30 p.m. ET, Gateway Center Arena, Atlanta, Georgia

Line: Aces (-6.5)
money line: Aces (-400), Dream (+310)
Total: 167.5 points

Doubtful: Regona Williams

exclude: Kia Stokes

Imagination need to know: The ace is a well-equipped machine at the fore in fantasy episodes, with five globally-listed players dominating their production. Theresa Plaisance (96.8% available) is the most interesting player available in most leagues, with a nearly double double of 8 points, 9 rebounds in the opener and an average of 1.7 BPG per season, but is not expected to produce big numbers with any consistency in their crowded front area .

The dream is starting to slow down 2-0 Ryan Howardwho set a record pace with no fewer than four three-pointers in each of her first two WNBA games. nia coffee (61.7% available) was a single rebound shy of a double in the opening, and although she fell from her scoring, she picked up eight more boards in Game 2. Kristi Wallace (98.8% available) Started the first two games in place of Tiffany Howard and played hard ball, with a double-digit scoring effort, one game with five rebounds and two exactly two assists and one steal per game so far. – snoring

Best Bet: Aces – 6.5 points

The Dream got off to a surprisingly strong start, undefeated by two games, and Howard looks like a budding star. However, the ace are the contenders for the championship now. They lost their last game against the rookie Mysteries, but won their first two encounters over the mighty and stormy Mercury by a total of 29 points. – snoring

Indiana fever at New York Liberty
8:00 p.m. ET, Barclays Center, Brooklyn, NY

Line: Liberty (-6.5)
money line: Liberty (-280), fever (+230)
Total: 159.5 points

Doubtful: Diddy Richards

exclude: Priya HartleyAnd Rebecca Allen

Imagination need to know: While Kelsey Mitchell He is the star in the back of the fever, keep an eye out for the rookie Destiny Henderson (82.4% available). She broke for a 19-point 30-minute effort in her second WNBA game, and is currently posting strong numbers around the perimeter of the season. Daniel Robinson (91.3% available) Just joined the squad on Tuesday and activated on Wednesday, but started all 24 games she played last season. non-veteran Queen Agbo He puts up massive defensive numbers, fresh from the effort of 5 steals, 3 blocks, 8 rebounds on Tuesday against Lynx.

for freedom, Sammy Whitcombe (60.4% available) Go to the bench for the second match after that Petnia Lani Link. While she went without goals on Tuesday, she still provided five assists and played 26 minutes in a big hit. It’s hard to take much from that game, which Liberty lost by 32 points while only scoring 50 as a team, but having a lot of runs from the bench bodes well. Jocelyn Willoughby (97.3% available) He had 9 points in just 19 minutes of that blast, and before that he had an impressive appearance with 13 points, 5 boards, 2 steals and 3 pointers in the opening. – snoring

Best Bet: Liberty -6.5 points

The season is so young that bombing Liberty against the sky this week could unduly affect what we think of Liberty, but remember they opened the season by sending off last season’s Juggernaut to the Sun. The Fever is the lowest-ranked team in the league according to the Basketball Power Index (BPI), losing its first two games of the season on 24 points before receiving a surprise win over Lynx. – snoring
