Minnesota at Houston

Thursday 07/17 12:05 PM Eastern

5 units on Houston -5 (+100) (risk 5 to return 5)  RESULT: WIN

Houston has been one of the worst in the WNBA taking to the road at 3-10, but a completely different club at home where they own a 6-2 mark. So the overall record doesn't look pretty, but they play a different game in front of the home crowd. The fact is that they have now won six of seven at home, and that includes wins over San Antonio and Seattle - the top two teams in the West. Minnesota may be showing a respectable 10-10 record, but considering they began the WNBA season at 5-0, they are just 5-10 since, generating just one road win in those 15 games. This game looks like the worst team is favored as Houston sits tied for the basement in the West, but a closer look reveals the truth. Minnesota is a .333 team over the last 75% of their games while Houston is 6-1 in their last seven at Home. We like Houston to come away with the comfortable home win.
