Free WNBA Pick:

Philadelphia 76ers -2

The Indiana Pacers haven’t looked very good during the preseason as they have dropped 2 games to the Cleveland Cavaliers, and they will get one of the better teams in the Eastern Conference with the 76ers. Philadelphia has been involved with the trade talks for James Harden, and I think that benefits this team, especially during the preseason as everyone is playing with a purpose to prove their role. The 76ers have a solid frontcourt with Embiid and Harris, but they made some solid additions during the offseason to bolster their depth with Seth Curry, Danny Green, Dwight Howard, and Tyrese Maxey. Final Score Prediction, Philadelphia 76ers win and cover ATS 118-110.
