Phoenix at San Antonio

1 unit on Phoenix -6.5 (-109) (risk 1 to return 1) RESULT: LOSS
The Phoenix Mercury have been dealing with injuries, especially to key players, and it has caused some inconsistency in their play. They have both Britney Griner, and Diana Turasi healthy for this one, and this is a tough inside-outside combination to deal with. This ring particularly true for a team like San Antonio, who is now tied with Tulsa for the fewest wins in the Western Conference. The Silver Stars battled through a very tough schedule early, and that stripped them of their confidence and wore them down physically. They don't own a win over a team that was .500 or better at the time they played them in their last 20 games, and are just 1-5 ATS in their last six vs. a winning team. The Mercury are holding ground on the road at 5-2 ATS in their last seven, and are healthy now. Play on Phoenix.
