Here are Wetzel and Barzilai's best bets for Friday's WNBA schedule:

LOS ANGELES SPARKS VS. DALLAS WINGS | 7/01 | 8 P.M. ET

Pick: Dallas -4

It's been a rough stretch recently for the Wings, losing by 11 as sizeable favorites against Phoenix and following that up with a brutal 38-point loss to Minnesota. But with Satou Sabally and Allisha Gray both probable to return, this team should be healthy and whole once again for this contest.

It may be wise to wait until those two are confirmed to bet this, but then again the line might move before then as this is a prime bounceback spot for a team that beat Los Angeles by 10 less than two weeks ago and has stumbled since.

LOS ANGELES SPARKS VS. DALLAS WINGS | 7/01 | 8 P.M. ET

Pick: Over 164.5 points

While Sabally and especially Gray do bring quality defense, their impact on offense may have been missed even more. Getting them back in the mix should make this team a tough one to defend again, especially for a Sparks team that doesn't match up well on the perimeter.

Since Dallas doesn't match up well inside the other way either, this one has potential to break 170. Each of the first two matchups between these teams cleared that mark, so bet on that happening once again.

INDIANA FEVER VS. SEATTLE STORM | 7/01 | 10 P.M. ET

Pick: Seattle -11.5

The Storm have blown some big leads late in games this season, so taking a double-digit spread for them can be scary. It would be understandable if you want to stick to the first half spread here.

But this is still a line that they can cover and should close higher. This is a team that's building momentum coming off of a double-digit win over the Aces in Tina Charles' Storm debut, and Charles seems to be accepting her role as a scorer off the bench. Meanwhile, the Fever haven't covered since June 19th and are establishing themselves as once again the worst team in the league.
