4 units on San Antonio +8 (-110) (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: LOSS
“Hunted is he who wears the crown.” With the best record in the WNBA, the Minnesota Lynx will draw the "A" game of their opponent every time they hit the floor. What that has meant is a team that went through a 10-3 ATS streak, establishing themselves as the team to beat, has a 4-7 ATS mark in their last 11 games. Despite a 7-2 straight-up mark in their last nine games, their 3-6 ATS mark shows that they have failed to cover four of the games they won straight-up. That suggests the opponents’ "A" game is better than the oddsmakers’ generous points. The Silver Stars have done a good job coming back from an ATS loss where they have just one ATS loss in their last six games. This number is inflated, so San Antonio gets the call.
