Minnesota at Seattle

Saturday 09/07 10:05 PM Eastern

0.5 unit on Minnesota -7 (-105) (risk 0.5 to return 0.5)  RESULT: WIN

A win here tonight means that Minnesota can do no worse than tie for the best record in the WNBA. I'm sure they would like to get it done, so they can ease their way into the playoffs. They'd also like to manage the minutes of their top performers, and let the bumps and bruises heal. Seattle has done a good job this season, especially without Lauren Jackson, and Sue Bird for the entire season, as they have managed a .500 record. What they haven't done a good job with is staying competitive against this Minnesota team who has beaten them badly in the two meetings by a combined 41 points. This looks like it very well could be the first round playoffs matchup in the West. A chance to clinch, as well as not giving Seattle a reason to think they can play with them, I look for Minnesota to win big for the third time. Minnesota has dominated this series at 14-5 ATS in the last 19 meetings. Go with Minnesota.
