3 units on Game Total UNDER 159 -110 (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The WNBA returned to action after a long layoff due to the Olympic games in China. Last night we got a great view of what has transpired in the layoff, and that was teams come back offensively rusty. A firm indication of that was the 55 points produced by Phoenix - which has been a scoring machine all season. The numbers being posted by oddsmakers are based on what happened before the Olympic games, and not what to expect the first time out after a long layoff. Last night's results firmly attest to the fact these teams are not where they were prior to the layoff. A total of five games were played, and every single one went under the total. They not only went under the total, but averaged going under the total by more than 16 points! We will exploit the bad line here and make this game a choice to go UNDER.
