Seattle at Phoenix

2 units on Game Total UNDER 177 -110 (risk 2 to return 2)  RESULT: LOSS

The Seattle Storm sit atop the entire WNBA with a 16-2 mark coming into this game. The Phoenix Mercury, Champions last year, have fallen sharply and have not recorded a win vs a team with a winning record all season. The Storm is on top for one very good reason, they play defense and execute on offense. The total here is shockingly high, but the public doesn't think so as they are flocking to the over like they already know the final score, mainly because Phoenix is associated with offense. The last ten times Phoenix has played Seattle they have averaged just 81.6ppg not including overtime. To put that in perspective, Phoenix has scored more than that in 15 of their other 18 games this year, so Seattle slows them down. Also, Seattle has not allowed any team to score more than 84 points in regulation for 31 straight games and, if Phoenix gets 84, then Seattle needs 93 to push this over, something they have done one time their last 48 games without the aid of overtime. This one stays UNDER the total.
