2 units on Game Total UNDER 158.5 -105 (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
This is an interesting game, as with a win the Chicago Sky will finish tied with the Minnesota Lynx for the best record in the WNBA. It would also give the Sky a 2-0 sweep of the Lynx, and thus home court advantage should they meet in the finals. That should in and of itself put some cause and effect at work here, as this potential finals showdown should take on all the characteristics of a playoff game. That should also mean the intensity is going to be felt on the defensive end of the court; and a lower scoring, half-court, physical game should be the result. I think both will respect the talent on the the other side and make the focal point here on the defensive end. Play this one UNDER the total.
