2010 Season WNBA Basketball Past Picks

Seattle at Minnesota

3 units on Minnesota +6 (-110) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: WIN

Seattle is making all kinds of news in the WNBA community. They have won 13 straight and at 22-2 they are off to the second best start in WNBA history. When that thing happens (in any sport), you can be pretty sure there is value in fading them ATS. And this seems to be bearing fruit. After a torrid start to the season losing only five of their first 17 games ATS, they have covered the spread in just three of their last seven games. They should win this game for sure, but how motivated are they to deliver a road blowout? They are facing the lowly Lynx - a team that is just 7-16 on the season including 4-8 at home. The interesting thing about Minnesota though, is that they can score. They have averaged 82.7 ppg in their division games and 83.4 overall over their past five. When these teams met in July, Minnesota lost by only 2 points. And, over the past two seasons, the Lynx are 9-2 ATS at home revenging a same-season loss. I like the home team to keep it close enough here.
