3 units on Game Total UNDER 159.5 -110 (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The Tulsa Shock have not fared very well in their new home as the former Detroit Shock, is struggling at 7-42 straight-up since the move. A couple of things have taken place this season with this team. They have abandoned the up-and-down the court style from a year ago, and the result has been 90 points per game allowed a year ago to 83 ppg this year, but the offense has suffered as well down from 78 ppg a year ago to 72 ppg this year. The total effect has seen this team's games go from producing 168 total points per game, to 155. Minnesota is ranked No. 2 in fewest points allowed in the league and No. 1 in defensive FG percentage, so Tulsa is not going to get easy looks and netted just 65 in their previous game at Minnesota. That makes five of the last seven meetings between these clubs notched as a win in the UNDER column, and my call here is UNDER. Play on the UNDER.
