WNBA Daily Fantasy Lineup Picks, Betting Picks (5/14/22): WNBA DFS Advice for DraftKings and FanDuel, Best Bets

WNBA dfs lineup picks daily fantasy basketball stock

WNBA action rolls along today with three games on the slate. Things get started early today with an afternoon game between the Mercury and Storm.

Just as I have for the last couple of years, I'll be providing daily fantasy lineup picks for the WNBA this season here at RotoBaller. But because I also moved to a state with legalized sports betting earlier this year, I'll be sprinkling in some basic betting picks. Not going to get complicated since there's limited space in this piece, but I'll throw you a bet or two each day that I like.

In this article, I'll be providing you with some daily fantasy WNBA lineup picks for DraftKings and FanDuel on 5/14/22. These lineups picks will range from elite players to mid-priced options and value plays. The slate locks on 5/14/2022 at 3:00 p.m. ET. Want to talk more about the WNBA? I'm always available on Twitter and always down to discuss women's basketball: @juscarts.

WNBA DFS Lineup Picks: Guard

Jewell Loyd (Seattle Storm) - vs PHO - DK: $8,800, FD: $6,800

Breanna Stewart missed Seattle's last game with COVID. I'm not sure if she'll miss this one, but if she does, you need to play Loyd—and even if Stewie plays, Loyd has some good value. With Stewart out last game, Loyd had to shoulder the offensive load, going 9-for-19 with 26 points plus adding five rebounds, two assists and two steals. Loyd will get you at least 25 DFS points most nights but these games where she's the team's No. 1 option see that ceiling raise immensely.

Jordin Canada (Los Angeles Sparks) - @ CON - DK: $7,700 FD: $6,700

After a whole offseason of people thinking that Chennedy Carter would be the starting point guard in LA, it's been another offseason acquisition who has played that role. Jordin Canada is averaging 30 minutes per game, with averages of 16.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 5.7 assists and 1.3 steals per game. Passing and steals were Canada's calling cards during her time in Seattle, but now she's looking good in terms of scoring in her new home. She's even made a couple of threes already, which is something we're not used to seeing.

Dijonai Carrington (Connecticut Sun) - vs LA - DK: $4,100, FD: $3,700

With Courtney Williams and DeWanna Bonner out again, Carrington should get plenty of minutes. She played 32 of them in the opener, finishing with 10 points, four rebounds and two assists. Carrington's ceiling is relatively low, but her low DFS salary makes her a great value play to help with your team building.


WNBA DFS Lineup Picks: Forward

Note: Breanna Stewart is only $9,700 on DraftKings. If she plays—she missed last game with COVID—then she's a must-play on that platform.

Sylvia Fowles (Minnesota Lynx) - vs CHI - DK: $11,000, FD: $8,300

The Lynx have not been good this year, starting 0-3. But Fowles is still doing her best in her final WNBA season, with an average of 18.3 points, 8.7 rebounds, 1.3 blocks and 2.0 steals per game. She's the hardest center to defend and is coming off a huge game where she scored 26 points and pulled down 14 boards. It's no surprise that when she did that, Minnesota came the closest it has this year to winning a game. Expect this offense to feature a lot of Big Syl post ups.

Nneka Ogwumike (Los Angeles Sparks) -  @ CON - DK: $9,900, FD: $7,800

There were concerns about Nneka and Liz Cambage fitting together. The Liz part of that pairing is still trying to get going but Nneka is playing some of her best basketball. She's shooting 54.3% and averaging 16.3 points and 10.0 rebounds per game and is coming off a big game against Atlanta, with 17 points and 15 boards, plus four assists and a block.

Jessica Shepard (Minnesota Lynx) - vs CHI - DK: $8,400, FD: $7,200

The biggest surprise in the league this season, Shepard almost had a triple double against the Fever, with 10 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists. Her passing ability has been huge for this team as it really lacks depth at the point, and while she has to drop off at some point, I'd keep riding the hot wave here.


WNBA Betting Picks for 5/14/2022

Looking to make some WNBA bets? Let's look at some options for you.

Seattle Storm Spread (+2.5)

Obviously, this depends on if Stewart is available. The Mercury blew the Stewie-less Storm out earlier in the week, but at full power, this Storm team can beat anyone. The line will likely move in Seattle's favor if Stewart is active.

Los Angeles Sparks Spread (+6.5)

Connecticut is still missing two of its best offensive players and its opening loss to the Liberty looks worse in retrospect after New York was blown out by Chicago and lost in overtime to the Fever. The Sparks have been competitive in every game. A 6.5-point spread feels high here based on the resume of these two teams.

Sky/Lynx U 160.5

The combined scoring average of these two teams is 159. The defenses combine to allow 159.7. This could be a close one...except that I doubt the Lynx get to their scoring average in this one. The team is a mess right now and just moved on from multiple players. Their best path to scoring points is to attack the basket, but two is less than three, which lowers their scoring upside.
