3 units on Seattle -5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The Monarchs are on a roll having won seven straight. But, six of those seven wins came as a favorite against inferior teams. Tonight they meet up with one of the top teams in the league and we think their run comes to an abrupt end. Seattle is coming off a loss and they have lost two of three so they will be very motivated here and won't let up if they build a lead. This team has just one home loss (to 12 wins). That loss was over a month and a half ago and came to a Detroit team that found lightning in a bottle and shot 52% from the field. The Monarchs are not that kind of team as they average just 41% on the year and 38.8% in division games. Seattle gets up for winning opponents as they are 7-1 ATS this season vs. teams over .500. They are 13-4 ATS the past two seasons at home vs. teams that allow 73+ ppg. We like Seattle to get it done and win and cover this number.
