Connecticut at Detroit

Thursday 06/26 07:35 PM Eastern

5 units on Detroit -7 (-105) (risk 5 to return 5)  RESULT: win

5 units on Detroit -244 (moneyline) (risk 5 to return 5)  RESULT: win

These teams will meet for the second time in three days and ultimately they will play three times over a six-game period. This series will go a long way to determine who comes out of the Eastern Conference as the top team. Connecticut took the opener in rather easy fashion, coming away with an impressive 17-point win in Uncasville Tuesday night. So why are they suddenly a six-point underdog here? Good teams don't forget embarrassing losses very quickly. Their loss occurred in their last game, so the mental edge changes for this one as well as the home court. These are two huge and decisive factors in the WNBA this year. Also worth noting is that the Shock have been an average team on the road at 5-4. At home they remain the only unbeaten team in the WNBA at 5-0, winning each game by an average of 10 points. The WNBA has also featured a huge edge to teams that allowed 80 points in their last game when matching up against a team that scored 80 in their last game. These teams, which are represented by Detroit tonight, have been 51-18 ATS over the last 69 games. Plenty of reasons for the Shock to keep working their home-court magic and come away with an impressive home win.
