Phoenix at Detroit

Tuesday 09/09 07:00 PM Eastern

3 units on Phoenix +7.5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: LOSS

The Phoenix Mercury brings their high-scoring game to Detroit for an inter-conference matchup. The Shock seemed invincible at home, starting the season at 10-0. The one thing that changed that was the Western Conference teams coming into town. While the Shock remains 10-0 against the East, they have lost three straight against teams from the Western Conference, failing to cover any of them. Since getting the rust out after the Olympic break and after scoring a season low 55 points, the Mercury has been playing their best basketball of the season. They have now won three straight by an average margin of 15 points per game. With the trouble the Shock has had at home vs. the West and with the Mercury getting it going, I like them to at least stay close in this one and will go with the dog here.
