Phoenix at Tulsa

Sunday 06/16 04:35 PM Eastern

1 unit on Game Total OVER 169 -110 (risk 1 to return 1)  RESULT: WIN

Looks like a run-and-gun game in Tulsa! Phoenix (3-2 over the total) is fine on offense averaging 82 ppg, but their defense is super-soft allowing 84.8 ppg -- worst in the WNBA. But Diana Taurasi leads the offense, getting 26 points against the Indiana Fever, as the Mercury ended a three-game losing streak in an 82-67 win, then hitting five three-pointers in a 34-point effort versus the Sparks, a 97-81 rout. Yes, they like to run and the over is 5-1 in the Mercury's last six games following a win, as well as 9-1 over the total following a spread cover. Meanwhile Tulsa is allowing 82.9 ppg, second most in the league, a tick better than Phoenix.  Tulsa just gave up 83 points in a loss to Minnesota on this floor, and the over is 5-1-1 in the Shock's last seven games playing on one day's rest. Play Phoenix/Tulsa Over the total.
