3 units on Minnesota -5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
In the opener of this home-and-home set, the Sparks won by 8 points. Now it's Minnesota's turn. The WNBA is a home-court sport, and if that home team is playing with revenge, we really get some value. Maya Moore led Connecticut to back-to-back NCAA championships and was the No. 1 pick in this year's draft. She poured in 21 points in her debut on the road - not bad. She'll be more confident and relaxed in this game at home and I expect a big game from her. Los Angeles is just 4-17 ATS the past couple of seasons when coming off a division game (they have real trouble getting "up" for back-to-back games). They are also just 2-10 ATS over that span following an ATS win. Take Minnesota for the easy cover here.
