Seattle at Phoenix
Tuesday 08/16 10:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Seattle +7 (-110) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
The Seattle Storm are a bit down this season, but they sure need to play with a focused effort here, with San Antonio, Phoenix and themselves tightly paired in the No. 2, 3 and 4 spots in the West. The Mercury have been up and down, but mostly down when they face good defensive teams, and that certainly fits this Seattle team. This is a Seattle team that has owned Phoenix as they have won nine straight games against them, including the last five in Phoenix, and they got one here earlier this season. It is hard to be laying a 7-spot with Phoenix when they haven't beaten Seattle in over two years, and are also just 1-5 ATS on three days of rest. Play on Seattle and take the points here.
