2 units on Game Total OVER 146 +100 (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
The LA Sparks have once again been beset with an injury to their franchise player in Candace Parker. They have since allowed 90 points per game without her, and in the last five games they are allowing just shy of 90 per contest. That opens the door for a good Seattle team to get redemption for a humiliating 24-point loss vs. this team in LA early this season, where the Storm was held to 50. I would expect that they are going to put up a ton here. Even with a good defensive effort as usual by Seattle, the number here is short-sided because of that anticipation. I see Seattle getting 90+ here and this one going OVER the total.
