Minnesota at Phoenix

Sunday 07/21 06:05 PM Eastern

1 unit on Phoenix +6 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1)  RESULT: WIN

Phoenix (9-7) has a winning record, and is on the heels of Minnesota and Los Angeles for first place in the West, so this is a big one with Minnesota in town. Phoenix loves to run at opponents, tops in the WNBA in scoring with 84.3 ppg. The Phoenix Mercury has historically been a team that responds well to adversity, even getting a victory over the Los Angeles Sparks just a few days ago after dropping three games in a row. Diana Taurasi scored 32 points, and DeWanna Bonner had 17 points and 11 rebounds as the Mercury snapped the Sparks’ 19-game regular-season home winning streak Thursday night with a 90-84 win. Now, they face the Minnesota Lynx twice before the All-Star break.  Minnesota is a road favorite, but plays its fourth straight road game here, and second game in three days. It's also their eighth road game over their last 12 contests. The Lynx are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games playing on one day's rest, and 2-5 ATS in their last seven Sunday games. Play the Phoenix Mercury.
