2 units on Minnesota +1 (-110) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
The Minnesota Lynx thought that their time had come last year, but key injuries to their two top players put those aspirations on hold. They have everyone healthy and now also have Maya Moore, and those ingredients have led to the best record in the WNBA. Phoenix is always a "sexy" pick because they like to get up-and-down the court and score. That didn't work out so well in the season finale here in Phoenix as Minnesota took a 6-point decision. It's not a smart thing to lay points against a team that was head and heels better than anyone this year in the WNBA. And in their last six in the role of a dog of more than +1, they are 5-1 ATS. The Lynx are also playing above the line recently at 8-3 ATS in their last 11, while the Mercury is over-heating vs. a winning team at just 5-12 ATS in their last 17. Play on Minnesota in this one.
