Here we have the best team in the league against the worst! Tulsa has such a bad overall record that they are now undervalued against the number. They are 2-1 ATS in their last three games - all as double-digit dogs. This is a tough situational game defensively for them, as this is the fourth straight road game for Tulsa and they face a Minnesota offense that likes to run, averaging 82.6 points per game at home - the second best home mark in the league. Minnesota has topped 79 points in three straight games and I see them running from the opening tipoff. However, while Tulsa is undervalued, the best team in the WNBA is overvalued with Minnesota at 1-5 ATS their last six games. The OVER is 8-3 in the Lynx’s last 11 vs. a team with a losing straight-up record, and the OVER is 11-5 in the last 16 meetings between these teams. As a result, play the dog and a the OVER in a shootout.
