4 units on Game Total UNDER 157.5 -110 (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: LOSS
Minnesota has been winning, eight in a row, and doing it with DE-FENSE coming off a 62-60 win over San Antonio, a game that sailed UNDER the total by 34 points! The Lynx, led by Seimone Augustus (16.2 points and 3.7 rebounds a game), have the best rebounding average in the league (37.52 a game). The UNDER is 5-1 in the Lynx’s last six games as a favorite, and 4-1 UNDER the total in their last five overall. They take on an LA Sparks team that is playing the second game of a six-game homestand and plays its best defense at home, on a 2-0 run UNDER the total at home. The UNDERr is 4-0 in the Sparks last four games as a home underdog, and 2-0-2 UNDE the total their last four against the Western Conference. Look for more defense than oddsmakers expect; Play Minnesota/LA UNDER the total.
