Tulsa at Minnesota

1 unit on Game Total OVER 154.5 -110 (risk 1 to return 1) RESULT: WIN
Life for the Tulsa Shock has not been very exciting since they moved here from Detroit. This is also a soft spot in the schedule for Minnesota. The Lynx are 17-5 and comfortable with six of their next seven games are vs. teams with a losing record. Minnesota is great offensively and defensively, but defense requires attention to detail. With 7-17 Tulsa in the house, I can see them lacking the full effort on the backend of the floor. This is also a team that has gone for 80+ in 18 of their 22 games, and I think they easily get there here. The last two years have seen these teams score a combined average of 165.5 points per game, and the highest total this season was achieved in the one played here. Minnesota has shown the flair to become offensive after a loss where they are 16-7-2 to the OVER in their last 25. The OVER gets the call in this one.
