Minnesota at Los Angeles

1 unit on Los Angeles -3 (-103) (risk 1 to return 1) RESULT: LOSS
Neither of these teams have much to play for here, but when you consider the fact that if all goes according to seeding this will be the matchup for the WNBA Western Title. I don't think LA wants Minnesota to think that they can come in here and win a game. It seems that both of these teams have sent that message loud and clear all season, with the four games all going to the home team by huge margins. Minnesota won at home by 9 and 24 points, while LA won at home by 30 and 28 points. This is not the spot for LA to give Minnesota a psychological edge in case they do indeed meet for the Western Championship. LA has had a stranglehold on this Minnesota team at home for a long time, as they are 19-7 ATS in the last 26, and I think the message goes out again like it has all season. Play on the Sparks.
