2 units on Tulsa +12.5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
The Tulsa Shock have a single win on the season and the two-year ledger shows a dismal 7-53 straight-up mark. However, the measuring stick changes with the inflated numbers now offered on this team. A sub-.500 LA team with no interest here as a double-digit chalk makes no sense to me. This was a team that was just a +13.5 point dog at Seattle less than two weeks ago, which is the most difficult building in the WNBA to play in. So to take-on a sub-.500 team posted as a similar dog places value on the Shock. The Spark has shown extensive inconsistencies and are now 6-20 ATS following a straight-up win. Tulsa gets the call.
