Seattle at San Antonio
Friday 06/21 08:05 PM Eastern
2.5 units on San Antonio -6.5 (-110) (risk 2.5 to return 2.5) RESULT: loss
1 unit on Game Total OVER 143.5 -110 (risk 1 to return 1) RESULT: win
The San Antonio Silver Stars enter this game at a dismal 2-4 to start the season, but that only tells part of the story. They have had to go against Los Angeles twice, a vastly improved Chicago team twice, last year's Champion Indiana, and to top it off, they've also had to go against last year's runner-up Minnesota. That 2-4 record is very deceiving. Seattle has lost two key players for the season and enter at 3-3. This team has a reputation of winning, especially at home, but this is going to be a tough season for them. The Silver Stars have played all six of their games UNDER, but for the first time all season they are going to be playing full throttle. They have a talent edge here, and I expect them to abandon the strategy of shortening games to up the pace here. The Storm have been lackluster when playing on two days of rest where they are 2-7 ATS in their last nine. The Silver Stars have come back strong off a loss at 4-1 ATS in their last five, and have a strong history of playing OVER in conference games at 20-9 in their last 29, and the last four in this series have gone OVER. The total here is too low, but the gear will be much higher for San Antonio here. Take the OVER and play San Antonio as my June WNBA Game of the Month.
