Los Angeles at Phoenix

Thursday 07/17 10:05 PM Eastern

3 units on Game Total UNDER 176 -110 (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: LOSS

Since their opener, Los Angeles has not seen a game reach this many points except in an OT game with Connecticut, and that includes two games played vs. Phoenix. Phoenix went through a very explosive offensive stretch in the middle of the season where they averaged 94 a game, but has since quieted down some producing just 87 points per game. The Sparks have held Phoenix below those numbers the last two times they have met, and seem to have found a way to slow this team down. The odds makers are still cranking out totals based on the 94 ppg stretch that Phoenix had, yet the numbers aren't as good lately, so we like the UNDER in this one.
