2 units on Game Total OVER 146.5 -110 (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
This is a game between clubs that play defense. The Storm rank No. 1 in that department, allowing fewer points per game than any other team in the WNBA. Not far behind are the Minnesota Lynx, positioned at No. 4 in the league. But, I like this game to go OVER the total. Minnesota can really rack up the points and they are on fire of late. The Lynx average 83.7 per game overall, 85.1 at home and they have put up 91 per game over their last seven. During that stretch, they scored under 80 just once. Minnesota historically carries offensive momentum over from game to game. They are 16-4 OVER at home after a game in which they shot 50%+ from the field. I'm playing the OVER here.
