2 units on Game Total UNDER 147 -110 (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: win
This is a big game for both teams as Minnesota and Phoenix have played as well as both of these clubs, and the loser here will be pegged down a notch. Seattle has the strongest home pedigree of any WNBA team where they always seem to bring their "A" game. The Storm is an amazing 52-6 straight-up here in their last 58 played. This is a must-win game for them falling to .500 with their loss at Chicago. The Silver Stars opened the season on fire offensively, averaging over 90 points per game in their first eight, but it was an unsustainable shooting pace and they have not reached 80 in their last five games. Seattle is in a year where 80 and 90-point games have become the norm, and is a team allowing a stingy 71.1 ppg, and at home in a must-win situation they will turn the defense up a notch vs. a San Antonio team that has struggled to find the bottom of the net of late. Those offensive struggles have seen them fail to go over the total in each of their last six games, while Seattle is now 20-8-1 to the UNDER in their last 29 vs. Western Conference teams. Play Seattle and take the UNDER.
