The WNBA season continues on Tuesday night with three exciting games, all of which have close point spreads.
Before you lock in any picks, you need to see what our proven model is picking. The model was developed by WNBA expert Jacob Gibbs, a young DFS guru who relies on deep analytics and an encyclopedic knowledge of personnel. Using his model, Gibbs scored big in WNBA Daily Fantasy tournaments last season, returning 81.4 percent profit on his investments. He also cashed 61 percent of the time in cash games.
Now, Gibbs' model has dialed in on Tuesday's action. If you parlay its top three picks together, you could be looking at a return of 6-1.
We can tell you he likes the Sun to easily cover the four-point spread at home against Washington. "MVP candidate Jonquel Jones is on an absolute tear to start the year, and with Emma Meesseman overseas, Washington is shorthanded in their frontcourt," Gibbs noted. "Expect a monster performance from Jones and an easy cover for Connecticut, who already beat Washington by 15 earlier this season."
He also has unearthed a critical x-factor that has him going big on an underdog on Tuesday as part of his three-team parlay that could payout at 6-1. You ABSOLUTELY need to see his selections before you lock in any picks.

Here are Gibbs' picks:
SEATTLE STORM +2
SEATTLE @ INDIANA FEVER | 6/11 | 7 PM ET
The Fever have been better than expected to open the season, but to be fair, their wins have come against teams with a combined 1-8 record. This is still the squad that posted a league-worst 6-28 record in 2018 facing the reigning champs.
Obviously, Seattle is shorthanded without Breanna Stewart and Sue Bird, but Natasha Howard and Jordin Canada have stepped up in a big way in their absence. Howard particularly has been unstoppable, averaging 19 points, nine rebounds, and four combined steals/blocks through six games. The Storm have been overwhelming opponents with an exceptionally large starting frontcourt of Howard and Mercedes Russell lately, and that combination could give Indiana's smaller frontcourt serious problems.
On top of that mismatch, Seattle guard Jewell Loyd has struggled with her shot to start the year and is due for some serious positive regression in the future. Her field goal percentage is down by nearly seven percent, while her three point percentage is down by nine percent. She has been getting good looks, they just haven't been dropping. Loyd averaged 16 points on 61 percent shooting in three wins against Indiana last year, so don't be surprised if she bounces back in a big way on Tuesday.
CONNECTICUT SUN -4
WASHINGTON MYSTICS @ CONNECTICUT | 6/11 | 7 PM ET
The Sun are undefeated on their home court and have won by an average margin of 13 points so far. They boast a WNBA-best defensive rating, which is going to be a huge factor against Washington's top-ranked offense.
MVP candidate Jonquel Jones is on an absolute tear to start the year, and with Emma Meesseman overseas, Washington is shorthanded in their frontcourt. Expect a monster performance from Jones and an easy cover for Connecticut, who already beat Washington by 15 earlier this season.
PHOENIX MERCURY -3.5
PHOENIX @ CHICAGO SKY | 6/11 | 8 PM ET
The Sky enter this game with a 2-2 record, but a -6.9 net rating that tells a much different story. They have struggled offensively, and that aspect of their game isn't likely to improve tonight against Brittney Griner and a Phoenix team that has the length and athleticism to be elite defensively.
Griner is clearly the key to victory for Phoenix here. While DeWanna Bonner's play to begin the year has been remarkable, Griner is the one who will cause serious matchup issues for the Sky. In games against Chicago that Griner played her full allotment of minutes over the past two seasons, Griner averaged 25 points, 10 rebounds, and three blocks. The Mercury were a combined +31 in Griner's minutes, as Stefanie Dolson and company clearly don't have an answer for her. As long as Griner can stay out of foul trouble, the Mercury should take this one easily.
