Will update with trends once they're released.
The Seattle Storm are obviously the better team here, but they've been shaky lately against the spread and have allowed teams to hang around too much. The Minnesota Lynx continue to get disrespected by oddsmakers, but they've won seven of their last nine games and have returned to their defensive roots that have made them title winners over the years. The Lynx have held five of their last seven opponents to 80 or less points. The Seattle Storm have seen four of their last six games being decided by single digits, which includes a pair of unexpected losses.
This is simply too many points to pass up with a Lynx squad that's found a rhythm. It's actually a bit insulting if we're being honest.
