Phoenix at Tulsa

3 units on Game Total OVER 173.5 -110 (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
A pair of attacking, up-tempo offensive teams clash in this one. Phoenix has scored 92 and 86 points the last two games without playing much defense, giving up 95 and 79 points. The good news is that they take on a Tulsa team that is the worst in the WNBA, focusing solely on offense. Despite a terrible record, Tulsa has won two in a row because the offense carried the day with 77 and 83 points, led by Sheryl Swoopes. Of course, at 5-23 there’s no incentive to play defense and they haven’t, as they’re on a 2-0 run to the OVER. The OVER is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings between these teams in Tulsa and I see an up-tempo game from start to finish. Play the OVER the total.
