Vegas Play of the Day: Phoenix of the WNBA at Minnesota

Here’s the latest installment of the Play of the Day, which uses odds from the South Point. Our three sports writers started with a $10,000 bankroll — fictional, of course.

Phoenix at Minnesota in the WNBA, Total Over 165.5: $440 to win $400: I feel like someone racing to the sports book after work to place a quick parlay with just a few options on the betting board. We’ve all done this, right? Hopefully not just me.

I forgot it was my turn in our handicapping rotation, meaning there isn’t much to pick from. So, when in doubt, go with the WNBA.

Phoenix is the league’s best team and scored more than 90 points in its most recent game. Minnesota has won two WNBA titles in the past three years and believes it is the league’s best team. To keep up with Phoenix, Minnesota will have to score with Phoenix. All signs point to the over.

Standings: Bern (40-27-1, $14,234), Keefer (32-37, $8,942), Brewer (28-37-3, $3,955)
