INDIAN COWBOY'S WNBA RESEARCH

Minny vs. Phoenix


The odds for this game have opened up at -3 for Phoenix and the first thing that strikes you is the fact is that over 80% favor Phoenix for this game. Keep in mind that Lynx got absolutely drilled on the road last night at the Sparks. Remember, when a team gets beat by that bad of a margin, they show heart the next time they play. Heck, look at the Liberty who went on the road to beat a very good Houston team Outright in Overtime. That alone tells you that a road team can have bite and show some heart, heck, why else would Vegas set a line, for the only wnba game of the night, to have Phoenix, an incredibly public team favored by just -3, after Minny comes off a thrashing, with over 80% favoring the Mercury, while Minny comes off getting beat by 24. In fact, it has been quite some time since the Lynx have lost back to back ballgames ATS. You have to go farther than 10 games back for certain as the order typical goes like such for the past 10 games in covers: L, W, L, W, W, L, W, L, W, L. Guess what's next? Remember, this is the same team that won at Indiana and San Antonio in Overtime (Conference Leader), Phoenix has lost back to back home games including a 22 point loss at home to San Antonio recently, this team is still without Tangela Smith who averages more than 10 points and nearly 7 rebounds a ballgame and this team also continues to have Penny Taylor out due to a personal situation. All I'm saying is that when 80% of the public jumps on a team, it is reason to be wary, and Minny comes off an ugly loss which is more reason why Minny is likely to show up here and Of course, an active dog, typically means an over, but 176 is an awful lot of points.
