2 units on Game Total OVER 160.5 -110 (risk 2 to return 2)  RESULT: WIN

The season has been a nightmare for the Tulsa Shock with just five wins heading down the stretch. This team isn't good to begin with, but as the purpose begins to wane, so has the defense. The Shock has allowed 100+ points in four of their last nine games. The ledger does not read well for the Shock on the defensive end, as they have allowed 94.2 points per game in the nine. To put that in perspective, the Phoenix Mercury average 95.5 ppg, and when they hosted LA the total was 177.5! Why is this any different from that one? The Sparks have picked-up the scoring, as they have been in the 70s or better in eight straight, and their previous longest stretch in the 70s was six games, so the offense has improved, and the Tulsa defense is simply not stopping anyone. I like the OVER in this one.
