5 units on San Antonio +9 (-110) (risk 5 to return 5) RESULT: LOSS
I have a lot of respect for this Phoenix team, but no fear playing against them. This team is not even close to the team that went the distance last year and cut down the nets, but are getting treated like they are. This is a team that looked like last years team for eight games this season when they went on a 7-1 run. They finished that run at 9-2. Take a look at the bulk of their season outside of that run, they went 6-17. Those 23 games represent 68% of the season! Remember Chicago had a stretch of going 8-4 this season and finished last, so don't be fooled by 11 games - 23 games paints a much clearer picture and the Mercury are way overpriced here. The Silver Stars don't forget they won in Phoenix this season, and have enough to stay close here. I like San Antonio in this one.
