1 unit on San Antonio +1.5 (-108) (risk 1 to return 1) RESULT: WIN
Seattle has a losing record on the road, but opened as the favorite in San Antonio. It's the middle of a three-game road trip for Seattle, playing two games here in San Antonio, today and Tuesday. In the last 50 games between these Western rivals, the home team has won 32 games compared to 18 wins for the road team. Seattle is not a strong offensive team, 70.8 ppg ranks 11th in the WNBA, and they are 12th in rebounding, which hurts on the road. The San Antonio Silver Stars are 5-0 ATS in their last five games following a loss, and they are home after playing four of five away. San Antonio is a good three point shooting team (fifth in the WNBA), and the Silver Stars are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games. When San Antonio has been the home team in this series, they are 14-9 against Seattle straight up. Plus, the Silver Stars are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 Sunday games, making this a great spot for the home team. Play the San Antonio Silver Stars.
