Phoenix at Chicago

Wednesday 09/11 08:00 PM Eastern

0.5 unit on Phoenix +355 (moneyline) (risk 0.5 to return 0.5)  RESULT: LOSS

The Phoenix Mercury have arguably the best inside-out dual presence in the WNBA with Diana Turasi and Britney Griner. They are a dangerous team that can get hot, as they are now. The Mercury won eight of nine earlier in the season, and are currently heating up for the playoffs by taking 8 of their last 10. Chicago has long put away the WNBA East, and I simply don't see a reason for them to bring it tonight in this one. They do not want to show a potential Western playoffs team what they can deliver if they should meet up for the title. This situation creates a great moneyline opportunity for a competent team that really has a chance to gauge how good they are. A road win here would be a huge feather for Phoenix, and they should be the motivated team in this matchup. Take Phoenix on the moneyline here.
