San Antonio at Phoenix

Tuesday 07/15 09:05 PM Eastern

3 units on Phoenix -3.5 (-105) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: loss

4 units on Phoenix -153 (moneyline) (risk 4 to return 4)  RESULT: loss

San Antonio has been about as good as it gets at home posting an 11-1 mark, but they certainly haven't been eye-opening on the road where they are just 4-6. Overall they have played a soft schedule on the road, as they have only had three of their 10 games against winning teams. Their road wins have come over teams with a combined 26-53 record. Even with a league's best mark (15-7), the jury is still out on this team. The Silver Stars still have two games left with LA, two left with Connecticut and a game against Detroit, so the schedule gets much tougher down the stretch. The Mercury has spent a lot of time on the road, but will play nine of their next 11 at home hoping to move up in the standings. They played San Antonio tough on the road losing by just five points, but after shooting just 2-15 in the second quarter they never recovered. That kind of drought doesn't happen to this team at home. Couple that fact with as bad as San Antonio has been on the road against mediocre competition, and we will ride the Mercury here.
