Phoenix at Minnesota

1 unit on Game Total OVER 164 -107 (risk 1 to return 1) RESULT: LOSS
The Phoenix Mercury will be without their top two players for this afternoon's game vs. Minnesota. That is certainly going to provoke the running game of the Lynx, who are strong on the offensive end as it is. I expect them to try and ramp up the pace here, and take advantage of a Phoenix team that is losing all of its depth. Phoenix allows over 86 points per game in their last six, and that is not representative of the offense they will see today, which is beyond the combined level of those six opponents. The Lynx have been over the 80 point mark in 13 of their first 16 games. Phoenix has topped the total in 12 of their last 15 games following an ATS win, while the Lynx, on fresh legs, has topped the total in 37 of their last 53 on two days rest. Play this one OVER the total.
