The Point Total Might Not Stand A Chance Against The Red-Hot Mercury ☄️

The Mercury and Aces are playing at incredible pace, making their combined point total over/under of 169.5 an appealing play.

The Point Total Might Not Stand A Chance Against The Red Hot Mercur

To win, bettors who take the over would need the teams to score 170 or more points. Bettors who take the under would need the teams to score 169 or fewer points.

While the under would have hit in a blowout Game 3 that ended with just 147 points, the over would have won by a considerable margin in Game 2 (208 points) and Game 1 (186 points).

Remember, Game 3 was a blowout from the jump, and Diana Taurasi, Skylar Diggins-Smith, A’ja Wilson and Chelsea Gray all scoring below 10 points is a wild outlier.

With the frequency in which the Mercury are shooting 3-pointers (26 per game this series) and rate at which the Aces are getting to the free throw line (21 shots per game), the teams could hit 170 points in a hurry.

Unless, of course, the out-of-sorts Aces stumble out of the gates again and allow Sandy Brondello to empty the Phoenix bench early.

Oddsmakers seem to think the Aces are toast and the team’s benches will keep the point total low. Even if Phoenix pulls away early, though, it’s tough to fathom  the stud guards Taurasi and Diggins-Smith will shoot as poorly again.
