Seattle at Phoenix

3 units on Phoenix -7.5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
I think that almost everyone was shocked at how poorly Phoenix played last year. After an 0-3 start to this season, it seemed that this team was not as good as most would like to think. They have since answered the wake-up call, playing better than any team in either conference, running off 10 wins in their last 12 games. What is scarier is that the points they are putting up. In their last nine wins, they have all been by 7 points or more. They have some extra incentive here as they dropped their season opener at Seattle by 7. Seattle is not the team they have been in the past and are just 2-6 on the road for the season, dropping their last four. The Storm is also now 0-6 ATS in their last six following an ATS loss. The Mercury are now 15-7 ATS in their last 22 vs. the West. We have a pair of teams heading in opposite directions, so take Phoenix and lay the points in this one.
