1.5 units on Game Total OVER 146 -106 (risk 1.5 to return 1.5) RESULT: loss
It looks like the oddsmakers have made a stance here that the Seattle Storm will have left the "A" game in Seattle. The Storm is locked into the No. 4 slot in the WNBA Western Conference playoffs, but this team still has some work to do. They would love to finish .500, and with both their remaining games left vs. this Tulsa team, they sure have a strong chance at doing so. Tulsa has been ultra-inconsistent since moving here from Detroit has not won more than once in a row since July 21st. They have gotten sloppy after a win and have allowed 84.3 points per game when following a satisfying win. I think Seattle has a message in store for them here as well, as the Shock have beaten the Storm three straight times this season by a combined 48 points. The Storm have been flying high on a day of rest where they are 19-7 ATS in their last 26 in this spot, and have also run more vs. losing teams, where they have cashed the OVER in five of their last six. The Shock have played OVER the total in four straight vs. a losing team, and the last six meetings here in this series have all eclipsed the total. Play on Seattle, and take the OVER.
