WNBA favorites in their opening game are a very profitable 48-29-1 (62% ATS) since the 2005 season. This does not blindly work the rest of the way as favorites overall in games #2-10 are 51%, games #11-20 are just 48% and games #21-34 are 51%. But in week #1 - favorites live up to their pre-season reputation and deliver.
