  • Wednesday’s slate features one WNBA game.
  • Bet on a strong start by the Seattle Storm.

Here are WNBA betting picks and predictions based on basketball odds for today’s schedule:

WNBA Picks Today: Wednesday, May 22

Fever vs. Storm – 10 p.m. ET

Pick: Storm First-Quarter Moneyline (-165)

As explained in my Caitlin Clark odds column, this really hasn’t been the ideal start for the talented rookie and her new team.

In fact, the Fever have had arguably the worst schedule, starting the season with a 0-4 record.

The Fever started things off with a road trip to the Connecticut Sun, a challenging test for any team in the league. They welcomed last year’s WNBA Finals runner-up, the New York Liberty, for their home opener two days later.

After a weekend trip to New York for a second matchup, Indiana then hosted the Sun in a rematch on Monday.

As a result, Indiana’s road trip to the Seattle Storm on Wednesday will be their fifth game in nine days.

I expect fatigue to start setting in for the Fever, particularly early on against a Storm squad playing their first home game since the season opener.

Seattle is just 1-3 to start the season, but this team should set the tone against an inferior Indiana squad on Wednesday. 

This bet is playable at -175 or better.
