Top WNBA picks and parlays for Tuesday
One pick the expert's are strongly backing for Tuesday is the Aces vs. Mercury rematch to go Over the 170.5 point total. The Aces are the highest-scoring team in the league, averaging just under 91 points per game, while Phoenix is third at almost 85. The experts say you should "expect a shootout in this one."
The Mercury have several offensive stars, including Skylar Diggins-Smith (19.3 points per game), Diana Taurasi (16) and Tina Charles (13.7).
