3 units on Phoenix +4.5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Phoenix is sitting at 4-3 straight up and 4-2 ATS. The amazing thing is that they are doing even better on the road (a tough place to be in the WNBA). The Mercury are 3-2 SU and 3-1 ATS away from home this season. Indiana has gone 3-1 at home but they are just .500 vs. the number. The Mercury's road pedigree dates back to the past few seasons. Over the last three years, they are 29-15 ATS overall on the road, 16-6 ATS on the road vs. winning teams, 24-12 ATS on the road vs. uptempo teams like Indiana (teams taking 62+ shots per game) and 23-12 ATS vs. teams that score 73+ points per game. Phoenix is also 10-1 ATS the past two seasons vs. poor-pressure teams like the Fever (those forcing under 15 turnovers per game). In their last eleven road games following a win, the Mercury are 9-2 ATS. Indiana is just 59-85 ATS in non-conference games and 40-60 ATS following back to back wins. Take Phoenix plus the points here.
