3 units on Game Total OVER 185 -110 (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
This total is sky-high. No total has been set this high this season and it's only the 20th time over the past seven years we have seen a WNBA over-under at 185 or more. So what - I think it's going OVER anyway. Minnesota scores 81.8 per game. Over their last five games, they have averaged 89 points per game. Phoenix is even more high-flying. They have scored 92.3 per game (95.0 in division games and 94.8 over their last five games). On the season, Mercury games have averaged over 177 points. The past couple of seasons, the Mercury are 18-8 OVER at home. That includes a 14-5 OVER mark when facing an opponent that averages 73+ ppg. Over the past three seasons, they are 16-4 OVER when coming off a double-digit home win. Minnesota is 10-1 OVER in their last 11 vs. a winning team. Take the OVER here.
