Basketball Odds: Phoenix Mercury vs. San Antonio Silver Stars

The Phoenix Mercury are in the midst of a free fall, and the long break for the Olympics will only act as a pause in their descent, as they look more and more like a team that wants the to pick I the draft over a playoff spot.

They should have no problem garnering another loss in this one, as they face one of the top teams in the league, the San Antonio Silver Stars. This is a perfect chance to win big on a bet on WNBA basketball, as the Silver Stars are clear favorites despite having to go out on the road.

The Silver Stars caught fire right before the break, stringing together a 9-1 record over their final 10 games. Fans and players alike hope that the momentum that was so powerful a month ago will carry over past the Olympics, but with such a long break, it is difficult to predict what kind of form any team will resemble on return.

One thing is for sure, however, and that is that the Mercury will give up points. Phoenix ranks dead last in points allowed per game in the WNBA, the largest factor in their league worst -10.4 point differential.

When you are trying to pull an upset such as this against the Stars, it helps to have some chance of stopping the other team from scoring. The Mercury have no chance, and with an offense that was once unstoppable but now looks only ordinary, they do not look like a team you want to back when you go to bet on WNBA basketball, especially against a team like San Antonio.
