Minnesota at Seattle
Sunday 05/22 07:00 PM Eastern
1.5 units on Seattle +9.5 (-105) (risk 1.5 to return 2.93) RESULT: WIN
A long road trip for Minnesota to the Pacific Northwest. The Lynx are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 road games, plus 6-14 ATS playing on three or more days rest. This is the middle of a three-game road trip for Minnesota, and they face a Seattle squad playing its home opener. Seattle had a bad opener, but they play hard for this coaching staff. As a +11.5 road dog the last game, the Storm won at Phoenix, 81-80. Seattle has talent behind the last two No. 1 overall picks, Jewell Loyd and this year's rookie Breanna Stewart. Loyd had 30 points and banked in her final shot with 2.9 seconds left in the upset at Phoenix Friday. Stewart registered her first double-double (14 points, 13 rebounds) after tallying 23 points on 9-of-13 shooting in her pro debut. Minnesota is 3-7 ATS against the Storm, including 0-5 ATS in the last five trips to Seattle, so back the big home dog. Play Seattle.
