Minnesota at Chicago

1 unit on Game Total UNDER 159 -110 (risk 1 to return 1) RESULT: LOSS
A big battle in the WNBA between the top two teams: Chicago is the best in the East, Minnesota (17-4) is the best team in the West, so it's a possible Finals preview. And marquee match-ups like this can mean all out defense. Defense is something both these teams do so well, ranked 1-3 in points allowed and 1-2 in field goal shooting defense. Chicago allows 39.4% shooting, Minnesota 40.3%. Minnesota is on a 12-5-1 run UNDER the total, and the UNDER is 6-2-1 in the Lynx's last nine road games. Chicago is on a 6-2 run UNDER the total and will bring its 'A-Game' on defense, 4-1-1 UNDER the total against the Western Conference, and the UNDER is 7-0-1 in the Sky's last eight games playing on one day's rest. Play the Minnesota Lynx/Chicago Sky UNDER the total.
