bittersweet yesterday.

i should have just stuck with MLB plays , i went 4-2 for +220, but i struck out in the WNBA, 0-3 for -330, the SUN had been playing so good, why Asjha Jones didn't play i don't know, for one, she played at UConn, you know those women can ball, second, shes the leading vote getter for MVP of her team, and third, she wasn't listed as injured, i guess when you have a playoff spot wrapped up you just sit your best people and don't give the public heads-ups. at least i know 75% of people lost along with me. the Silverstars center got shut-down and Erin Buescher didn't play, she averages 11.2ppg, she wasn't listed as injured either, and the Silverstars average 75ppg at home and give up 73ppg, but yet neither team could break 60,and the public was 89% on the Stars, just a disappointing night. well heres todays predictions and plays, i guess since its the weekend i'll give a little write-up, again i give all my predictions and plays a good look over, i don't just pick out of the blue. i just don't have time to do a write up everyday, plus i'm the only one reading this anyway.

Erin Buescher didn't play for the Silver Stars because she tore her ACL a month ago and is out for the season.
