The Lynx are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
The Lynx look like a team starting to put things together with three straight wins and the offense has improved each of their last four games. The Mystics just can't get out of their own way and the defense is starting to slip more and more. I'll lay the bucket with the Lynx on the road, as they win their fourth straight contest.
