Seattle at Minnesota

Sunday 08/04 07:05 PM Eastern

1 unit on Seattle +13.5 (-107) (risk 1 to return 1)  RESULT: LOSS

Minnesota has won eight in a row, and now getting too much wagering respect, on a 1-2 ATS run. The Lynx is 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games playing on one days rest, and they are a big favorite here against a terrific Seattle defensive team. Seattle allows 73.7 ppg, tied for best in the West, and second in the league. We've seen that defense on display the last three games, on a 2-1 SU, 3-0 ATS run. In fact, they were underdogs of +13.5 and +4.5 the last two games and won both by seven and nine points! The Seattle Storm is 10-1 ATS against a team with a winning record, and 13-3 ATS in their last 16 Sunday games. The Storm won at Chicago and at Los Angeles, and defeated Atlanta at home – three of the top four teams in the WNBA. Storm point guard, Temeka Johnson, is finding her shot, averaging 10.7 points and 4.4 assists, and rookie Tianna Hawkins is beginning to contribute:  She scored seven points in a pivotal second quarter as the Storm defeated the Mercury 88-79 on Thursday. Seattle is 11-4 ATS following a spread cover, and 10-4 ATS versus the Western Conference.  Play the Seattle Storm.
