United States vs. Nigeria Odds
| +1.5 (+100)
||OVER 3 (-115)
|| -1.5 (-120)
||UNDER 3 (-105)
The United States plays Nigeria tonight and are comfortably favored to win and advance. The Americans can take no worse than third in the group, if they were to lose tonight while Australia or Sweden could win.
The Americans didn't beat Sweden in their last matchup, but did draw, which was a positive outcome. Losing to Sweden would have put added pressure on the Americans in this matchup tonight against Nigeria, which is something they won't need against a team they should beat. Nigeria comes into tonight's match having lost to Australia and drawing with Sweden.
The United States will look to push the offense forward in this one and try for the early lead. If they are able to get on top of Nigeria, they should coast to a couple-goal win. But Nigeria really has nothing to lose, maybe that will help them after not scoring against Australia.

Betting and Winning in the WNBA
According to pro handicapper Steve Fezzik, you don't even need to watch WNBA games to successfully bet the sport. He tells fellow handicapper Teddy Covers that the sportsbooks simply don't spend enough time setting good lines on the sport, so just following injury reports, like the one with top player Diana Taurasi of the Phoenix Mercury, will tell you what you need to know. Yes, the betting limits for WNBA are low, but the bright side to that is the wise guys leave WNBA alone, giving smaller stakes bettors more opportunities to succeed.
